Founder Nisha Katona had a vision to build an eatery serving the kind of food Indians eat at home and on their streets, and in 2014, she gave up her 20-year career as a full time Barrister to build Mowgli Liverpool. Less than a year later Mowgli Manchester was opened. Their dishes convey the truth that real Indian food is extremely healthy, often vegan and always packed with fresh flavour. In 2018 Mowgli was awarded a placement in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list, and this year Nisha was recognised with an MBE in the 2019 New Year Honours list for services to the Food Industry. Nisha, a dedicated curry evangelist, has fond hopes for Mowgli’s growth and she still insists on hand picking curry virgins for her kitchens, hand training each new Mowgli chef. Nisha is a food writer featured in a number of publications including the Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Times and The Independent.
