Mowgli Street Food Restaurants
Founder & CEO
Nisha Katona was a child protection Barrister for 20 years and is the founder, CEO, executive and development chef of Mowgli Street Food restaurants. She taught Indian cooking for many years and started a YouTube tutorial channel. She opened the first Mowgli on Bold Street Liverpool in 2014 when she was still working full time as a Barrister. The popular restaurant expanded quickly to Manchester just a year later and there are now 6 Mowgli restaurants with a further 4 sites to open in the 12 months thereafter. Mowgli is about how Indian’s eat at home, pared back and unplugged. Aside from Mowgli, Nisha is also the author of 3 cookbooks: The Spice Tree, The Mowgli Cook Book and Pimp My Rice. She has also worked extensively with the BBC on several projects all championing the importance of simple home cooking.
