Further Information

Equipped with an open kitchen, this modern Indian restaurant on Hope Street in Glasgow’s city centre offers you the chance to see the chefs in action as they whip up your meal. Traditional Indian cuisine is given a modern twist here – hence the name – and the menu is bursting with exciting new takes on classic choices alongside all of the typical but much loved options. Here you’ll find a range of tapas-style dishes and starters blending Indian and Scottish cuisine, such as a mince and tatties curry and haggis pakora.

This theme continues on the main course menu with signature dishes including grouse tikka and rabbit curry, but you will also find the old favourites like South Indian garlic and chilli chicken, and a range of curries. These include the self-proclaimed hottest curry in Scotland – made from eight different chillis and so spicy that it is only available to those over the age of twenty-one! With their unexpected takes on Indian cuisine, Masala Twist is a popular choice amongst the city’s curry loving crowd - we recommend booking your table at this Glasgow city centre restaurant in advance to avoid disappointment!

Excellent food and service.We had the pre theatre menu and it is great value at £9.95.The portions were ample and it was ideal prior to going to the Theatre Royal just across the road.

Excellent varied menu with unusual delicacies which you don't normally see on an Indian menu, all cooked to perfection. Lovely chilled wine and great service.

Lovely food, the Garlic Chilli Chicken was so full of flavour. The waiters were attentive without being intrusive. A nice sized restaurant with a comfortable atmosphere. A very enjoyable evening.

Excellent food, great location. I paid just under £70 for the mixed platter for 2, 2 curries and a few drinks - very good value for money I thought. The only down side was the service was a bit slow. The restaurant was busy but not completely sold out. We sat down at 5:30 to eat as we had theatre reservations. I had to ask 4 times for the bill as the till was being held up by what I think was orders for delivery! Only a slight downside so only marked it down one.

All the different dishes our party ordered were very much enjoyed. We started with poppadoms and pickles and perhaps it was our misunderstanding in ordering that meant we only were served one type of pickle while commonly you might expect a selection. Next time we're there we'll be sure to order 'a selection of pickles' with the poppadoms. I very much appreciate that as a member of the emergency services with a Blue Light Card we received a discount.

Staff were lovely and the food was great. The entrance isn't overly appealing - not sure I would have gone in if I didn't know Masala Twist as I've eaten in the Helensburgh one also, but once upstairs the layout/décor was nice. There is plenty of space between tables etc. so you don't feel cramped. I just need to learn to eat to so much, especially before going to the theatre :-)

Food was delicious but it was a very cold wet night and there did not appear to be any heating on in the resturant. My friend and I were very uncomfortable. Pre theatre is advertised but we were not offered it and had to request it . Over all the food is faultless and will certainly use your resturant for take aways as I live in town but probably not the resturant as it needs some decent heating.

Been coming to this restaurant for a couple of years and never disappoints whether the lunch time buffet or evening meal. Had the thali this time and both of us enjoyed it and would have it again. One of the best Indians in Glasgow.

Masal Twist was good my husband had the mince and tattie curry and he said it was excellent. There was no pr theatre they should have this on every night and they would get more customers, the restaurant was not very busy and the pre theatre should be on every night till 8 then they would be more customers.

The food was lovely but the atmosphere needs to chill a bit. Everything came like a conveyor belt, too quickly. The portions are unnecessarily large , one Nan bread will feed 6 but someone should tell you if you are ordering too much food. Just relax and let people take time to enjoy the great food

An unusually varied menu, with regional dishes many of which I'd never heard of, as well as the usual favourites. Excellent food. Generous servings. Good, friendly service. Attractive decor. First rate all round.

Food great however had a 20% discount card which was initially accepted and I was presented with the bill less 20%. Before I had a chance to pay the waiter came over with a second bill for the full amount and said the discount could not be used after all......no explanation as to why the discount was not valid, or apology for originally issuing a reduced bill. Paid the full amount, just under £40 but was a bit miffed - not good customer service in my opinion - won't return.
