Nisha Katona has confirmed that she will open Mowgli's first Brighton outpost next spring, having secured a site in The Lanes.

The primarily northern-based Indian street food group will launch on Dukes Lane, in a space previously occupied by retail outlet Oasis. 

It will mark the group's most southerly opening to date, and will come hot on the heels of Mowgli's London debut​, which is scheduled for next month.

In an Instagram post​, Katona confirmed the Brighton opening with a series of design mockups showing different exterior colours including sherbet pink, light blue, and dark green; the latter of which is synonymous with the group's branding. 

She said: "So exciting to announce my Brighton Mowgli opens next spring in this utterly charming rounded building in Dukes Lane.

"I have already designed her up - I want swings in the windows and my heart is rather set on our sherbet pink like our Notts Mowgli - what do you think? I have mocked a few other colours up for you but as we approach our most southerly site I think this lightness of touch and sweetness of hope is prettiest in pink."

A former barrister, Katona launched Mowgli in Liverpool in 2014.

The group currently operates 13 restaurants across the country, most recently opening a site in Cheltenham.

Mowgli has been on the expansion trail since securing a £3.45m backing from private equity company Foresight Group in 2017.

Other cities currently being considered by Katona to take Mowgli to include Edinburgh, Glasgow and Preston.
