London: Actor Tom Cruise, who recently visited an Indian restaurant in England, was left red-faced when he wasn't able to pay USD 350 restaurant bill.
The 50-year-old visited the restaurant with a group of friends and insisted on paying the bill but couldn't as the eatery didn't accept his American Express card and Cruise was only carrying US dollars, reported Daily Mail.
"It was a big shock for us when he walked in. He said we had been recommended to him, but he would not say by whom. At the end of the meal he wanted to pay, but we could not accept American Express.
Actor Tom Cruise, who recently visited an Indian restaurant in England, wasn\'t able to pay the bill.
"He said his whole group only had dollars, then a lady came forward and paid in 50 pound notes," said Darshit Hora, the restaurant manager. Darshit says if the actor, who left with a generous tip, wouldn't have been able to pay the bill, the restaurant would have been more than happy to put on the house.
The bill was 220.85 pounds so they left almost an 80 pound tip. It was very generous. If they did not have any money, it would have been on the house," he added.
Cruise is reportedly enjoyed curry meals, specially chicken tikka at the restaurant. The 50-year-old actor, who recently divorced his wife Katie Holmes, was seen gorging on chicken tikka at the Indian restaurant Veer Dhara in St Peter's Street, reported Contactmusic.
The staff at the restaurant was surprised when the actor turned up with his entourage and ordered a huge list of dishes. The group also ordered fish and chicken starters, two lobsters, two Lamb dishes, rice, bread which totalled up to a bill of 220.85 pounds. The actor is currently busy shooting for his upcoming film, 'All You Need Is Kill'.
