Wasim Akram playing cricket at Chak 89

Chak 89 the award winning London based Indian Restaurant treated Wasim Akram with a trip down memory lane. Wasim Akram, who was in London on a vacation with his family, dropped into Chak 89 last Tuesday, after hearing about Chak 89 and its reputation of excellent traditional home style cuisine.

Looking fit and hungry, Wasim who sat on the famous booth table, made famous by being the favourite seat of Shahrukh Khan (who was at Chak 89 a few weeks earlier), tucked into a host of dishes, including the famous Chak Chicken Special, Karahi Lamb and Tadka Daal with his friends. Enjoying every bit of his meal, he acknowledged his appreciation by thanking the waiters and the manager at Chak 89.

Frank Khalid, owner of Chak 89 and friend of Wasim Akram managed to persuade him to have a friendly few balls of cricket outside in Chak 89’s car park. It was not long before everyone at Chak 89 gasped in shock at the pace of his bowling after such a long time away from competitive cricket.

Afterwards, Wasim was more than happy to sign the Chak 89 Celebrity Wall, previously signed by the likes of David Haye, Adnan Sami to mention but a few.

As Wasim was preparing to leave, he took time out to allow other diners, staff and management to take photos and even gave out a message to everybody, wishing them Ramadan Mubarak. We asked him what his experience was like at Chak 89 and he replied, “Fantastic food, I definitely will come back again and I urge others to come and experience the Chak 89 experience.” Once again Chak 89 has proved to be “A Spice above the Rest!”
