Indian street food restaurant Mowgli to open in Knutsford, Cheshire this summer

Indian street food restaurant Mowgli is coming to Knutsford, Cheshire this summer and will open its doors on King Street this July.

Delivering simple and delicious dishes that are cooked fresh in each restaurant every morning, Mowgli is all about celebrating the type of food that Indians cook and eat at home, highlighting the smash and grab zing of healthy, light, virtuosic herbs and spices.

Founder of Mowgli, Nisha Katona MBE, said:

Taking Mowgli to Knutsford is like bringing her home for me. I love everything about the foodie, four-legged, friendly Knutsford atmosphere, and taking my Indian home kitchen to this community makes me so excited. It’s a market town where I spend so much of my time; I love the lunch scene, the dog-friendly shops, and the twinkling high street evenings.”

Mowgli is all about the way Indians eat in the privacy of their home kitchens and at their favourite street stalls. Distinctive for her golden fairy light twinkle, her trees hung with ropes and twines, and the clatter of tiffin tins stacked with family recipes – Mowgli was inspired by Nisha’s grandmother’s temple side home in Varanasi, India, and builds her restaurants as a home from home. “It’s a place to kick back with friends and family, two and four-legged, as we have a passion for the things that matter to you!” says Nisha.

“I’m full of enthusiasm; for every Mowgli, we create jobs for local foodies, aim to raise over £500k per year for charity and sponsor a child in need for every full-time employee. Everything is cooked fresh by our team of local chefs every morning, and every day, we know we are only as good as our last curry. We hope diners will love Mowgli’s passion for healthy, fresh Indian food.”. Nisha continues, “To make Knutsford truly our home, we will adopt East Cheshire Hospice as our local house charity recommended by those who dine with us, to whom we will dedicate our time and resources“.

Mowgli exists to enrich lives in the cities we go to. The Mowgli Trust has raised almost £2 million for local and global causes, ensuring that every restaurant partners with a local charity to fulfil its mission of giving back to the community.

Mowgli has recently been recognised as Best Place to Work by the Sunday Times for a second consecutive year and awarded one of the ‘Best Companies’ to work for in the UK for three years. Other accolades include the 2023 Casual Dining Awards’ Restaurant Brand of the Year (1-19 sites)’, British HR Awards’ Hospitality and Leisure Company of the Year’, and MIB’ Restaurant of the Year and Business of the Year’.
