We were a group of three adults and one child for dinner at Curry Twist. Usually we have take-out from North of Bombay but I had read some decent reviews on this place from NOW Magazine and decided to give it a try. Our group was most impressed. Each dish was very unique and had a completely different flavour then the next one (not something I can say about North of Bombay that is okay but all the dishes taste very similar). You can tell that they use high quality spices. We ordered Naan and Paratha (which were not on the menu but they made them for us in any case) cooked perfectly in the tandoor oven. We started with the Aloo Tikki, which in my opinion was heavenly. It had the perfect amount of heat that disappeared as you swallowed it and very complex flavours in the sauce, which included ginger and cinnamon. We had the Butter Chicken (lovely), Chili Shrimp (great flavour and heat) and the Lamb Madras (loved the coconut in this one – lamb was soft and fell apart easily). We also had the Dal Amritsari and my personal favourite was the Baigan Bharta (apparently they smoke the eggplant before it is cooked and there is a beautiful smokiness that I was told the chef thought suits the North American palate – he was spot on).
Overall, this is a cozy restaurant in the Junction that will definitely become our regular place to have a decent Indian meal. Since our favourite Indian restaurant closed some 20 years ago, we have been hard pressed to find a decent replacement – but I think we have found it in the Curry Twist.
