Another Eat Out To Help Out booking, this discount really is making me get to all the restaurants I’ve been wanting to eat at for a while, I’m loving it!
If you haven’t been to or heard of Mowgli, where have you been? Get booking! Having opened in Leeds this year, I’ve been hearing more and more about it and was very excited to book in, and it didn’t disappoint.
Based on Eccleshall Road in Sheffield, this restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere (which I believe is reflected across all Mowgli restaurants) as soon as you walk in you’re immediately impressed by the decor – trees with fairy lights, swing seats, a copper bar, clean and modern dining area – it really is lovely. The menu is explained well as soon as you’re seated too in that the food is served tapas-style, so dishes are smaller than your usual main meals, and they come out as and when ready served in the middle of the table for everyone to share. The advice is that typically 2-3 dishes each are enough and the menu has Street Food or Curries to choose from, so we decided on 2 street food dishes, 2 curries and 2 roti breads between us – this was definitely enough!
Gunpowder Chicken – Mowgli’s chicken poppers, ginger, garlic, garam masala & golden fried in a chickpea batter. These chicken pieces were so delicious and the sauce it came with was a little sweet but so good! A really good choice.
Angry Bird – Succulent chicken thighs marinated & roasted in tandoor spices, yoghurt, ginger & garlic, served with popped mustard Mowgli Slaw. I LOVE chicken thighs, and these were cooked beautifully and tasted really good. The Mowgli Slaw is also really tasty we both loved it.
Mowgli Paneer – Staff favourite. Tender cubes of soft paneer cheese simmered with velvety
sweet, spiced tomatoes, garden peas & fresh spinach. You know I have to have a paneer dish if it’s on the menu and this didn’t disappoint. A tasty, saucy curry with lots of paneer and a medium spice strength, it was really good.
House Lamb Curry – Falling apart & long simmered with anise, plums, chickpeas, this is my Dad’s recipe. A deep, rich, home kitchen gem. A great curry, the lamb just melts in your mouth, the liquorice taste of the anise really does come through and gives the curry a bit more of a sweeter taste but we loved this too.
We soaked this all up with a roti bread each which I think was a good accompaniment to the meal and we were pleasantly full after the 4 dishes.
Drinks wise there are a choice of cocktails (some classics with a twist), wines, beers (small cans/bottles so a little pricey for the size of the drink), and soft drinks. With the 50% off food and soft drinks discount and as I wasn’t drinking and Ben had 1 beer, the bill came to about £24 which was a real bargain for how good the food was! Without the discount I would say the prices aren’t too bad although does around £8 a dish really reflect tapas-style eating? I would recommend 2 dishes each and a bread/rice is definitely enough here.
Well writing this review has made me crave a curry and I already have the dishes picked out for my next visit! This place is highly recommended by me so please do give it a try. Check out more about Mowgli and their menus here.
