The firm, which offers fresh home cooking-style Indian food, has taken a unit at 78 St Vincent Street, extending to almost 4,700 square feet over three levels. It was previously occupied by the Handmade Burger Company.
Property advisor CBRE secured the restaurant operator for the “high-profile” unit on behalf of the landlord CBRE Global Investors (Shell Pension Fund).
Mowgli was founded by curry evangelist and food writer Nisha Katona. It specialises in small street food items as well as larger curry dishes. The business started in Liverpool in 2014 and now has 11 outlets throughout England and Wales.
While this will be the firm’s first offering in Glasgow, an Edinburgh outlet is also due to open later this year after a lease was signed for a unit on Hanover Street prior to the initial lockdown in March 2020.
Kevin Sims, head of the CBRE retail team in Scotland, said: “Mowgli is a fantastic offering and it’s exciting that we’ve helped secure a space for its continued expansion throughout the UK. 78 St Vincent Street is a high profile unit that corners with West Nile Street, in a part of the city centre that is renowned for its great restaurants and bars.
“In the current climate it is great news to be attracting new entrants to the city and we hope with the rollout of the Covid vaccination programme it is a trend that will continue and we’ll see more occupiers commit to future plans.”
