best indian restaurants sheffield - Mowgli Street Food Sheffield Lamb Dish


Last, but not least on our list of best Indian restaurants in Sheffield is Mowgli. This restaurant is not about the intimate, hushed dining experience. It is about the smash and grab zing of healthy, virtuosic herbs and spices and explosive flavours. Sheffield is home to Mowgli’s first venue in Yorkshire and they’ve been a hit ever since! Showcasing food from the homes and streets of India, a million miles away from the ‘curry’ stereotype.

We recommend their four-tiered tiffin boxes if you want to try a mixture of dishes – It’s like food roulette, but with zero risks because every dish is guaranteed to be delicious. All of this can be enjoyed on their iconic swings under twinkly fairy lights.
