A popular Indian restaurant in Helensburgh has picked up an award at a national event.

Masala Twist on James Street scooped a trophy at the annual Scottish Asian Food Awards on Monday evening.

The much-loved eatery won the Curry Restaurant of the Year (South West) category at the ceremony, which was held at Glasgow's Marriott Hotel.

The curry house is no stranger to success, as they have accrued a number of accolades in the 10 years they have been in the town.

We previously reported that Masala Twist won the 'Voter's Best Choice Restaurant of the Year' accolade for the south-west of Scotland - and then went on to lift the prize in the same category for the whole of the country at the Scottish Curry Awards in May last year.

The establishment was also a finalist in the same awards in 2018.
