A family business, Twisted Tandoor began as a food truck traveling the city to bring authentic Indian cuisine to local Tucsonans.

With many customers leaving with a smile on their faces and loyal customers returning time and time again for our popular Chicken Tikka Masala the food truck was a huge success. For those of you who haven’t had the opportunity to try delicious, authentic Indian food here in Tucson, fear not — The Twisted Tandoor is pleased to announce that we will be joining forces with Josh and Aric Mussman of JAM Culinary Concepts in our new restaurant endeavor.

The Mussman brothers are the owners of several local Tucson establishments, Vero Amore, Noble Hops and The Still, as well as the recently opened Tinwell, in Salt Lake City. For the past year and a half, The Twisted Tandoor has been working with the JAM family at their Vero Amore location on Swan Rd., offering “Indian Pizza Night,” which proved to be a great success. Since the beginning of our collaboration with Vero Amore we have intended to partner with the Mussman brothers in finding a brick and mortar for The Twisted Tandoor, as well as to get the food truck up and running again for catering and private events.

Stay tuned for more details and information regarding a location for our new restaurant. In the mean time, let us cater your next event! Check out our catering options:
