Indian street food concept Mowgli is to open a site in Leicester next year.

Founder Nisha Katona confirmed on Twitter that she had secured a site in the city’s St Martins Sqaure.

She said: “It’s been a long road to get here but I’m so excited to announce Mowgli Leicester which I signed today. We will be opening in the most perfectly ‘Mowgli-esque’ St Martins Square amidst the pretty Leicester lanes. We aim to start our build in the spring. We can’t wait.”

The currently six-strong group is also understood to have openings lined up in Sheffield, Preston and Cardiff.
