A restaurant popular with well-known faces has welcomed The Wanted star Tom Parker and Desperate Housewives actor Jesse Metcalfe through its doors recently.

Frank Khalid, the owner of Chak89 in Bond Road, Mitcham, said it is popular with celebrities because it is recommended by their friends.

Tom Parker and his girlfriend Kelsey Hardwick enjoyed a starter of calamari followed by chicken in a Chinese sauce with pilau rice and garlic tandoori prawns during their visit on Wednesday, June 25.

Mr Khalid said: “We have had Chelsea footballers, Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad, Mark Wright and lots of others.

“You would think we were in the West End but we are in Mitcham.

“We’re a destination restaurant.”

Tom Parker’s The Wanted bandmate Siva Kaneswaran visited the restaurant recently and recommended it to his friend.
