Nisha had a nagging obsession to build an eatery serving the kind of food Indians eat at home and on their streets so in 2014 she gave up her 20-year career as a Barrister to create Mowgli.
Born in Ormskirk, Lancashire, the daughter of Indian immigrant doctors, Nisha Katona is the founder, CEO, executive and development chef of Mowgli Street Food restaurants. Working tirelessly as a Child Protection Barrister for 20 years, she gave it all up in 2014 to build Mowgli.
Her obsession with taking her ancestral offerings to the market and building an eatery serving the kind of food Indians eat at home and on their streets, led her to her first restaurant. Her first Mowgli was born in the hinterlands of Liverpool’s Bold Street, and she opened Manchester less than a year later. Passionate about growth, she builds Mowgli simply to enrich lives in the cities we go to, by creating jobs in a nourishing workplace, giving back to our communities through charitable giving and spreading the love of an Indian home kitchen.
