Indian Twist is known for its exquisite Indian cuisine, including Chicken Tikka, Tandoori, and Biryani. GM Jimmy Aujla grew up in India, where he volunteered in a Sikh Temple kitchen as a child. Cooking became a hobby for him as a teenager. He started working at his family’s Indian restaurant, Maharaja, in Washington state, after relocating to the United States in 1996.
Jimmy went to Palm Springs to help open and run Monsoon after his family opened another restaurant in Beaverton. They opened Flavor of India in Needles last year.
