Mowgli continues regional expansion with Birmingham debut at Grand Central


Hammerson announces that Indian street food restaurant, Mowgli, has chosen Grand Central to open its debut restaurant in Birmingham.

Founded in 2014, Mowgli currently has a presence in Liverpool and Manchester, serving authentic Indian cuisine. The dishes are healthy, often vegan and packed with fresh flavour. Chefs are handpicked and trained by the restaurant’s founder and food writer Nisha Katona.

The new 364 sq m restaurant will be located in the casual dining area of Grand Central, alongside Pho and Tapas Revolution. Since its launch in 2015, Grand Central has established itself as a leading retail and dining offer in Birmingham, ideally located adjacent to the iconic Bullring shopping centre. The centre was built directly above New Street Station, the busiest train station outside of London, and is home to a number of aspirational brands including John Lewis, Jo Malone, White Company, and Cath Kidston amongst others.

Sarah Fox, Head of Restaurants and Leisure at Hammerson, said “Mowgli is a perfect addition to the line-up at Grand Central, significantly strengthening and diversifying the food and beverage offer at the centre. Grand Central has a varied retail tenant mix, highly complementary to the extensive range of brands at Bullring next door, and with the addition of Mowgli, we are enhancing the dining offer to match, delivering a greater choice for customers throughout the day and into the evening.”

Nisha Katona, Founder of Mowgli, said, “I am very excited about taking Mowgli to Birmingham and particularly to Grand central. Mowgli is about smash and grab zing of honest, home style, fresh food. It strikes me that Grand Central clients are all about this kind of edgy offer.”
