Indian home-cooking brand announces expansion into London with new Fitzrovia site

An Indian home-cooking and street-food eatery has announced that it is set to open its debut London site.

Mowgli Street Food, which has 13 sites across the UK, is expanding into London after signing for a new Fitzrovia site with property agency Shelley Sandzer.

The new site, on Charlotte Street, spans 5,800 sq ft and will be inspired by the broken-down temples around founder Nisha Katona’s ancestral home in North India.

Nick Weir, co-managing partner at Shelley Sandzer, commented: “Given their popularity across the country, we are delighted to have secured a debut London site for Mowgli.

“Their innovative and creative menu, and fun atmosphere, will be a great asset to Fitzrovia and the city more widely.

“We have been energised by the comeback of hospitality and are proud to be contributing, working with operators like Mowgli that are investing in places and jobs at such a challenging time for the industry.”

Nisha Katona, founder of Mowgli Street Food, said: “Mowgli is the way my ancestors ate at home. I take local chefs and train them in the way my family has cooked for generations and all our dishes are freshly cooked in each restaurant every morning.

“We are uncompromisingly domestic and we are not everyone’s cup of tea but we have a family of followers who called for us in London and it is for them that we grow.

“I’m absolutely delighted that, with Shelley Sandzer’s help, we can now call Charlotte St our new home.

“Mowgli’s purpose is to enrich lives in the cities we go to starting with the teams that become part of our family, our guests for whom we become home from home and our community through our support of our London house charity.”
