Masala Twist, Byers Road

After a wee spot of rhythmic gymnastics on the first Friday of the Commonwealth me and my mum headed out into the West End for some grub - and as always when my parents are in G-town we had our eyes open for a new Indian place. I had spotted Masala Twist on some of my Byres Road jaunts a couple of times and decided to give it a try.

The place is small (and truthfully a bit cramped - though I did discover upstairs was huge) but sells authentic feeling Indian food and has extremely friendly staff and excellent service. Me and my mum were nested near the bar (obviously) where we had some Bacardi and coke and some wine after walking from the SECC to Byres Road in the heat that Glasgow experience that weekend.

Personally, for starters I went for the Spicy Garlic Mushroom which for some reason I had imagined would be stuffed mushrooms but came as a curry and despite the waiter's warning that spicy was a very suitable name, I still seem surprised when they started a fire in my mouth and prompted my mum to get the waiter to bring me water. Then for mains I went for a Bombay Aloo which was a bit more subtle.

The curries were on the average side; definitely tasty but not something I'm going to sing praises about however Masala Twist provided my tastebuds with the best nanns ever. Me and my mum are both nann fans so we ordered two for the table - one peshwari and one vegetable. For my measurement of how good I consider these nanns to be I'll use this anecdote: even though I was stuffed I kept tearing off little bits of the nanns just cause I wanted to taste them again despite my stomach telling me to stop (use your thoughts to imagine this).

After stuffing ourself, we transported ourselves and our food babies back to the Southside of Glasgow and went straight to bed haha.

  1. I do love a good peshwari naan, but on the whole I'm not a massive fan of Indian food after a bad experience with some hospital food that was masquerading as a curry... ugh. x

    1. These nanns were so good it would make total sense to go along and just ordered a bunch of them and forget the curry! :P
