Mowgli Street Food opens on Church Street, Cardiff
Indian street food brand Mowgli has opened its new restaurant in Cardiff as part of the Church Street development. Bruce Gillingham Pollard acted on behalf of the landlord, Hermes Investment Management.
This is Mowgli’s eighth restaurant having opened their first site in 2014 on Bold Street in Liverpool. Since then, former barrister and now TV personality, Nisha Katona has opened in Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield and Nottingham, with this unit their first site in Wales. The menus are designed to emulate authentic Indian home and street cooking including the iconic tiffin tins. The restaurant has been designed to be fun, yet intimate with trees, bird cages, rope swing seats, exposed brick walls and fairy lights.
Church Street is a pedestrianized thoroughfare which links High Street and St Mary Street in Cardiff which has been redeveloped by the landlord to create a restaurant destination. Mowgli is joining a high-quality line up which includes The Botanist, Pho and Honest Burger with one further letting to be announced in due course.
Victoria Broadhead acted on the letting, and comments:
‘Cardiff is such a vibrant city with a large young professional population and a lucrative visitor economy. Mowgli is the perfect occupier for the cosmopolitan Cardiff customer and ideally complements the existing line up. Having focused exclusively on expanding nationally, Mowgli is a great example of the quality operators successfully trading outside of London.’

‘Take a wrong turn to the right place, and you’ll find Lost in Brixton’

This is the fifth venue from Incipio group who are also behind The Prince in West Brompton and the Pergola sites in Paddington and Olympia. The bar is located in a previously unused space above a goods yard, next to the railway arches.
Following a similar winning formula to their other venues, Lost in Brixton features live music, local draft beer and a retractable for the summer evenings. However, unlike their previous venues, the food offer is sourced exclusively through existing traders within Brixton Village and makes use of a bespoke app ‘Tablesnapper’ which enables customers to order food from the market which is then delivered to your table.
