Bantawala by Masala Twist (West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

Visit : 31/07/2021 (Invited)

The Visit

The guys at Bantawala asked me if I would like to come and trysome of their food, so I accepted and set a date.

I have passed here many times, mostly when it was known as Masala Twist and its been on my hit list for a while…then covid hit.

I was excited to go and check the place out, and see what its like inside.

Inside

Todays visit inside was very busy, and I am not someone who likes to take photos and include the people inside so these are the snaps I took.

How funky is the inside, it had a lovely warm atmosphere and the art work on the walls was very cool.

The Food

I opted to select from the Pre-Theatre menu which is priced at £13.99

For my starter : Vegetable Pakora

As you may have seen in my previous posts, vegetable pakora has become a must for me when I go to an Indian restaurant as its very nice.

Presentation wise this looked very nice, and I noticed the sauce wasn’t a vibrant pink colour so this was going to be interesting to try.

I started trying the pakora on its own, and I have to say it was very nice. The batter and texture was perfect, highly recommend if you come here.

I now dipped the pakora in the sauce, and ohhh this was very nice. It was sweet but not overpowering and added a lovely flavour to an already nice pakora.

I can’t wait to have this again.

My Main : Chicken Korma and Saffron Rice

I always have to see how each restaurant does their Korma dish, some I’ve found to be bland, others spicy and some really nice…so how was it here?

Visually it looked good, and it smelled really good so it was time to taste.

This tasted very nice, the chicken was perfectly cooked and the sauce was nice and creamy…everything worked very well together.

My Drink : Kokam Banta

This was very new to me and I have never heard of this before, the owner brought it over to me and told me what it was and how they make it.

This is very cool as they brought over the machine that makes this from India and they make it all in house…and just look how cool that bottle is.

The flavour of this was berry and it was very refreshing, I am definitely going to order this again on my next visit.

If you havent had one before do check it out.

Nando’s (Springfield Quay, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Visit Date : 3rd July 2021

Today myself and two friends were going to see Fast & Furious 9, so we stopped here for some dinner before the film.

I have probably only been to Nando’s once prior to this one, its never my first place to go but did todays visit change my mind?

The Food

Grilled Chicken Wrap £6.75

Today for dinner I felt like getting a nice wrap, and this is what jumped out at me.

On arrival this looked really good, and smelled very nice….so it was time to taste.

I am going to be honest here, it was nice for what it is. Very fresh, nice flavours etc but for me it needed some mayo or BBQ sauce etc but thats a personal things.

The chips, they are always nice here and very addictive.

Overall :

Overall tonight’s visit was very nice, we had a good laugh at the table and the food was nice.

When I do visit a Nando’s again, I will try something different.

Lunch Pro Food Ordering Service : Review

About Lunch Pro

Curated meals from the best chefs with free delivery

The Delivery

The guys at Lunch Pro messaged me asking if I would like to try their service, but I did notice it was only for a specific area and where I work was outside that area.

They were kind enough to personally deliver it to me, so I could get the full experience of their ordering service.

The Food

I have planned to go to The Madras Café for a while but I have not really been in the area, so when I saw they had them on their app I knew I should order something from them.

Paneer Chatpatta Wrap £7.50 (+ free chips and can of coke)
Spicy paneer tikka stuffed in fried paratha with flavoured chutneys and salad

I was expecting one Chatpatta and there was too, so I knew dinner later today would not be happening.

I started with the chips, and I have to say they were perfect. Nice texture and perfectly salted not too much not too little….very nice.

The Chatpatta on its own….this was MEGA tasty and the sauce just added to its already great flavour.

This was a great lunch and very filling.
