Selected by INSIDER

A popular gem amongst our premium selection of the trendiest restaurants right now

We are "The Twisted Indian". Located in the bustling suburb of Leichardt, The Twisted Indian is a casual restaurant perfect for a relaxed catch-up with friends and family.

We are where traditional meets modern, where global meets desi and where being twisted is absolutely normal. The vision behind the name is to showcase the wide variety of flavours and what can be made out of them with a bit of creativity. Our traditional curries taste just the way they should without added preservatives or flavours. Also on offer are our signature Indian inspired cocktails and local craft beers along with quality wine and spirits.

    The service was Impersonal and rushed but the food was good. Wine tasted off, like the bottle had been open for a while. The palak mushroom was great.
