Twist, The new Hukka place in Town!

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is such a huge commercial opportunity that even pubs, lounges, bars and restaurants are cashing in on the demand for live screening of matches. One such place is Twist, a relatively new Restobar cum lounge cum discotheque located in Andheri West, near PVR Juhu and Croma Juhu.

Went here with friends to enjoy the screen of Mumbai Indians vs. Deccan Chargers. Honestly, it made for great viewing. Lots of fans cheering on Mumbai Indians and going wild with every six hit. The only thing missing I guess were the cheerleaders though there was a fashion show to be held after the match, so we guys did get a view of the delicate darlings!

While watching the match, we ordered for a Pan Masala Hukka. The Hukka was aptly named IPL Mixed Hukka. The flavour was good and lasted for sometime but the price wasn’t worth it. Probably a price tag of Rs.200-250 would be a better price point.

To go with the Hukka, we ordered for a Veg Wanton. In my opinion, it was better than at Wanton House. The filling was good but the size of each Wanton was small though the overall quantity was good.

We continued smoking Hukka and in the meantime even shifted tables for dinner. For dinner, we ordered for Veg Korean Rice and Pan Fried Noodles. The main course was nothing to write home about. The veggies felt uncooked and the overall dish was bland. You’d expect that from a Chinese and Korean fare but I have had better Chinese Rice and paid half the price.

Overall,  Twist is a good place to hang out. Apparently the owner of this place is dating Miss Pantaloons (not sure of this info) who was present amongst us on the day of the match.

Anyways, the ambiance of Twist is really good. The lounge area is excellent to wile away time with your friends and enjoy the evening. The restaurant has a more formal decor and especially for those who intend to enjoy a few drinks and have dinner over a corporate meeting or just a casual conversation with friends.

While the place is nice, the same cannot be said about the food. We were disappointed with the food especially since the Rice and Noodles were priced at INR 150 each. A similar meal (with similar tastes) can be had at Yummies on Carter Road.

Ratings in Brief:

Food: 2.5/5

Service: 4/5

Ambiance: 4.5/5

    Well yesh a lot of places in Mumbai show IPL matches and the added attraction of watching cricket with your friends at your favourite restaurant/pub is an added attraction for people.

    And I do travel beyond Mumbai and try writing about the places I visit but those visits are few and far between and most of my ‘food trips’ are restricted to Mumbai itself, for now 🙂
