Noel Gallagher Surprises Diners At Birmingham Balti House

Diners at a Birmingham balti house were given a surprise taste of celebrity stardom when Oasis and High Flying Birds star Noel Gallagher popped in for a curry.

The guitarist and song-writer was in Birmingham on Sunday night after performing at the T in the Park Festival in Scotland on Saturday.

His party of eight called in to the Kababish Restaurant in Moseley - which has previously hosted Muhammad Ali - at around 8.30pm.

Although the restaurant was quiet at the time, owner Saj Shafique said it wasn't long until news of Gallagher's appearance filtered through to the Patrick Kavanagh pub next door.

Mr Shafique, who had his picture taken with the rock star, said: "Noel's got this reputation of being a bit grumpy but he wasn't like that at all.

"A few of the guests in the restaurant and some of the people from the pub next door were mingling about to try and get a photo with him.

"He was just one of the lads and spent a few minutes posing with people for the small crowd."

Gallagher, whose Oasis Jug of Ale 1994 gig features in the Birmingham Mail's top ten best ever Birmingham gigs - ordered a Balti Mix Jalfrezi.

His party stayed at the restaurant until about 11pm.

Farooq Mohammed, one of the partner's who own the restaurant, added: "Noel called ahead to let us know he was coming so we could make some arrangements for him.

"He was a really nice guy and had a chat with some of the staff when he went out for a cigarette.

"Apparently Kerrang Radio recommended that he tried us and we were obviously delighted to host him."

Gallagher's appearance in Moseley comes just two week's after Hollywood star Brad Pitt was spotted a few miles down the road in Hall Green.
