Harbor Blvd Masala Twist is wonderful. Indian food is a favorite of ours, but not on the spicy side. Marsala Twist listened to our concerns and we were delighted with the mild sauces. Lamb Tikka Masala and Chicken Biryani with Raita Yogurt sauce and Peshwari...Naan was delicious. Outdoor patio dining in Covid times was pleasant and the walk around the harbor topped the day.More

try someplace else! once again they refused to put an adequate amount of chicken in our dishes. This will be the last time we order food from them. The food taste good and is flavorful, it just lacks substance. You always get minimal chicken or...goat in your orders. This last time, I told them I would pay extra for more chicken and it seemed they put even less than usually. It's a shame, but please avoid this placeMore

Omg! What a treat to finally have Indian food in Oxnard, CA. I couldn’t believe this was possible. They even deliver. Highly recommend chicken tikka, mango lassi and nan bread. Only issue was they forgot utensils so I’m rating this four stars.

My family was pleased to have a new food experience... generous portions and delicious (not too hot, but just right)! I know Indian food and now they do too.

I am a huge fan of Indian food and have been to the Subcontinent a few times. This place is friendly, inviting and really quite inexpensive. Their tikkas are excellent, as are their rotis, naans and chapatis. I'm told the biryani is very good (I...can't eat rice so no personal experience) and their aloo tori is to die for. The Masala Twist has replaced my previously favorite Indian place in the area and I hope they are able to stay around in a highly competitive environment.More

This is a family run business. We searched to find great Indian food and we found it. The sauces are incredibly flavorful and balanced. A lot of people are worried about the "heat" of the spices but don't fret, they are all mild allowing all...the flavors to blend. Tandori Chicken, Chicken Marsala, were my favorites. The chicken was so soft and moist and again the sauces spectacular. The Spinach saag, as well as the other vegetable dishes are outstanding, as is the garlic Naan. And they have a carrot pudding for dessert that was fantastic. Since our first visit here about three weeks about we have returned four times bringing family and friends. All of them were very impressed with the food and some were timid to start. This is a fantastic restaurant.More

Masala Twist is a great addition to Channel Islands Harbor. The food is tasty and they are careful to spice it to the diner's taste. Solid menu and they do take out as well.

The food is tasty and most of it is gluten free. I enjoy the buffet. There is no air conditioning but because it is near the water, that is not normally an issue.

We were greeted at the door for lunch and was told to sit anywhere. The waiter had enough of an Indian accent that it was difficult to understand what he was saying. However, our daughter eats Indian all the time so she translated for us....The ladies went for the buffet, as it has many items to choose from. I went for the mixed tandoori as a main and the lamb samosas for app. We were all extremely pleased with our meals. Everything was cooked beautifully, the flavors are second to none, it was not too hot and not too saucey.More
