Indian street food chain Mowgli has appetite for expansion

A restaurant chain specialising in Indian street food has unveiled plans to open a raft of new premises across the UK, including its first in Wales.

Liverpool-based Mowgli Street Food has announced it’s set to open in Church Street, Cardiff next spring.

The firm’s menu offers dishes that are fresh, healthy, low in fat and reminiscent of Indian home-cooked food. Vegans and gluten-intolerant diners also have a wide range of options to choose from.

Fan favourites include Mowgli Paneer, Mother Butter Chicken and Yoghurt Chat Bombs – crisp bread puffs filled with chickpeas, spiced yoghurt, tamarind and coriander – described on the menu as “the heart of Mowgli”.

Founder Nisha Katona opened her first restaurant on Bold Street in Liverpool in 2014, following up with a move into Manchester’s Corn Exchange less than a year later.

An additional two sites have now launched in Liverpool and Birmingham, and Mowgli is hoping to open in Leeds later this year.

Speaking to Wales Online about the move to Cardiff, Nisha said: “This was a bold move for me. Some would counsel against the inevitable risks that come with growth and ambition.

“Many urge caution, but I feel passionately about taking Mowgli to the cities that would have her.”

In February, the firm announced it was in the process of looking for a second site in Manchester, following the success of its first restaurant in the Corn Exchange.
