Indian street food brand, Mowgli, has opened a 128-cover restaurant at Grand Central Birmingham.

Designed by Founder and CEO Nisha Katona, the interior includes the iconic Mowgli ropes with an ambiance inspired by the broken-down temple behind her ancestral Varanasi home. 

The debut opening for Birmingham marks the brand’s fourth restaurant, ahead of its Leeds opening scheduled for early 2018.

Mowgli was founded by barrister and food writer, Nisha Katona, who has written for titles including The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times and The Independent, as well as filmed for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Food Network.

“Grand Central is already home to a range of leading dining brands and the addition of Mowgli further strengthens this vibrant mix, bringing a new, exciting offer to both the centre and Birmingham," says Sarah Fox, Head of Restaurants and Leisure at Hammerson.

"Attracting innovative and creative restaurants such as Mowgli is testament to Grand Central’s strength as one of city’s leading retail and leisure destinations.”
