An Indian restaurant that first announced it was coming to Bristol back in May 2019 is finally due to open soon.
Building work has now started inside the Grade II*-listed building on 35 Corn Street that was most recently a Pizza Express and also holds the distinction of being one of Bristol’s first ever banks.
Mowgli promises to be “the way Indians eat at home and on their streets”.
There are already 18 Mowgli restaurants across the UK, having been founded in 2014 by former barrister Nisha Katona.
“Mowgli is all about the type of food that Indians cook and eat at home; born to feed the raw need Indians have for dishes full of fresh, bright, intense flavour,” says the restaurant chain’s website.
“Mowgli is about the smash and grab zing of healthy, light, virtuosic herbs and spices.
“The simple dishes on the Mowgli menu are cooked fresh in each restaurant every morning.
“The aromas floating down the road should tell you all you need to know about us truly being your neighbourhood Indian home kitchen.”
