Helensburgh lies just outside of Glasgow, but they don’t have to miss out on the Masala Twist experience. The esteemed Glasgow curry house has opened a branch by the banks of the Clyde, just a short walk from Helensburgh station on James Street. Head down to Masala Twist Helensburgh for an authentic Indian meal, and don’t just take our words for: they were voted among the finest Indian restaurants in Scotland at the Scottish Curry Awards.
Glasgow has many curry houses – in fact, the Dear Green Place was the city that gave the world the Chicken Tikka Masala – and the competition between them is fierce. So to be named among the finest in Scotland is some accolade, and one to be boasted about for sure. Masala Twist have achieved such recognition at the Scottish Curry Awards, and at their Helensburgh restaurant on James Street, you can find our why they are known as one of the finest Indian joints around.
Indian restaurants are of course judged on their curries, but to reduce Masala Twist Helensburgh to just that would be to miss out on much of what makes them great. Their starters are a real draw – the haggis pakora is a classic Scottish twist on an Indian classic – and the vegetarian selection is among the best in Glasgow. We’d recommend going in a big group, so that you can share and enjoy a wide range of their dishes – but remember to book, as this James Street restaurant can fill up quickly!
Perfect as always! Didn't finish as too much to eat as usual. Always willing to provide a "doggy bag"! Exceptionally great food served in a friendly and informal manner.
Had a good night at the restaurant - great food and good service. will def be back and recommend to others. would like more fish dishes
Wonderful food , lovely atmosphere great service . Warm and friendly staff with a good knowledge of the menu with recommendations to suit my palate
Masala twist is our favourite place to eat! Never had a bad meal and today was no exception 😁 staff are top notch very welcoming
Good food and good and portion size, piping hot. Atmosphere good. Toilets immaculate. Staff friendly. Service was quick. We visited at lunchtime so it was quiet just as we like it. The background music was quiet - so many other restaurants have it yelling at you. The cost of the business lunch was excellent. Our first visit but we will be back
I found my experience at "The Masala Twist, Helensburgh", to be excellent both in terms of service and value for money. The menu has all of the standard fare that you would expect, but there are a good few original dishes...that's the TWIST I guess...that look to be worth trying. I would definitely recommend a visit.
Wonderful food, friendly staff. A great variety of dishes, all freshly made to perfection. Lots of unusual currys, not just the usual run of the mill selection. If you like your food hot then the South Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken is worth a try, not for the faint hearted!
Went out for family birthday celebration. Food was wonderful, staff very friendly and helpful. A few new additions to the menu, my husband had the crocodile curry - very unusual ( he loved it but I wasn't brave enough to try it). Thank you for a lovely night.
Service good, friendly. Good selection of curries. My husband's fish curry was overcooked - the fish was not very tender, just a small criticism. Spicy onions were a delight. Toilets could have done with some attention, no loo paper in one and floor untidy . Overall good experience 😊
Lovely food, great service and buzzy atmosphere. Some unusual menu choices which might be tried next time. Menu available on line to check out. Really good evening, we'll be back!
