Black, who was in town with Kyle Gass for a series of sold-out shows by their band, Tenacious D, decided to explore the city’s culinary delights before their performance at the Resorts World Arena on May 7.

He chose Asha’s, a city centre Indian restaurant known for hosting stars like Tom ‘Two Tikkas’ Cruise and singer Pink, who once said at her Villa Park concert that Asha’s gave her the ‘best Indian of her life’.

Black’s visit included a surprise serenade. Jenny McIntosh, a customer at Asha’s, shared her experience with star, saying, “He was a great guy! He had pictures with us and sang Happy Birthday to my husband!” 

Black added a special touch to the birthday celebration and left a lasting impression on the guests. Asha’s staff were equally thrilled by Black’s visit. They shared a snapshot of the occasion, featuring Jack Black in a vibrant, phoenix-patterned tie-dye shirt and shorts, flanked by two smiling members of Asha’s staff.

The photo was captioned, “What a treat it was to welcome the legendary Jack Black to Asha’s yesterday! Jack is one half of the incredible Tenacious D but you will also know and love him from global blockbusters like The Holiday and School Of Rock. It was a pleasure, Jack…”

Fans and customers alike were quick to comment on Black’s visit to Asha’s.

Another fan, ZanzibarLiquor, simply commented, “What a legend!”
