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 food was very aromatic and tasty. The spices were subtle and the heat was subdued. We asked for medium and it could have had a bit more heat. The tacos and paneer tika masala were my favourites.

    The food at this funky restaurant is quite clever because there is a dash of bohemian cafe style mixed with Indian. We loved the food. The Monk on fire entree particularly appealed to my Dungeons and Dragons playing partner due to the monk and fire reference and it was served dramatically with flaming rum.

    This was a brilliant find. The best Indian meal that I've had in Sydney. All dishes were beautifully executed, but at times with little points of difference that distinguished them from other restaurants- like the tandoori prawns flambed in Indian rum or the momo- not just steamed but also finished in the tandoor and accompanied with a cracking, fiery sauce. The service was fabulous as the owner even gave us a taste of their home distilled jaggery based spirit. Definitely my new go-to for Indian food and we got 30% off with the Fork:)

    Excellent food, every dish, from palak paneer to the beef korma, was rich and flavourful. The naan was crispy on the outside and perfectly fluffy inside. I'll be back again ;) Helpful recommendations from staff to try the mango lassi cocktail! (One is plenty)
