David Beckham Visits Chakra with Sons Brooklyn and Cruz!
Posted on 7th December 2015
You might be surprised who you can bump into in London’s trendy Notting Hill. Countdown’s Rachel Riley and her Strictly boyfriend Pasha Kovalev say they love wandering around Notting Hill’s cafes and delis, Humans actress Gemma Chan confesses she’ll be getting all of her Christmas shopping at her local independent shops, and Lily Allen famously attended this year’s Notting Hill carnival. Just a couple of weeks ago we were treated to our own brush with fame when none other than football legend David Beckham came to Chakra for a meal with his sons Brooklyn and Cruz!
David, 40, and sons Brooklyn, 16 and Cruz, 10, paid a visit to Chakra on Friday 27th November. The trio enjoyed a taste of authentic Indian cuisine, and the football star kindly posed for a photo with some of our staff.
Chakra’s Taimur Khan says: “He was a thorough gentleman and all of us are big admirers of him.”
Cruz, who is said to be the most talented footballer of the Beckham boys, was apparently feeling the chill that evening, and the family were snapped on their way home from the meal as David lent Cruz his camo-printed jacket. Meanwhile Brooklyn, a keen photographer, shot a video of his father saying “Je Suis Paris”. The video was used in a compilation played before Paris Saint Germain’s first home football match following the terror attacks in Paris earlier in November. David Beckham was one of 52 sporting stars featured in the video coming together in solidarity for the attack victims.
The Beckhams’ night out was covered in the press. Articles from The Mirror and the Daily Mail shared snaps of the family on their way home from Chakra as a fan asked for a photograph with the football hero. The Daily Mail reported:
“The boys dined at Chakra restaurant near to their family home. They were greeted by a fan as they exited the up-market eatery and Brooklyn was all too happy to play happy snapper once again. The lovable father-of-four willingly posed with the starstruck female and was seen getting into position.”
We’re thrilled that the Beckham boys enjoyed a meal at Chakra – and we hope they come again soon! If you’d like to have your own night out, why not take a look at our Christmas menu, or book a table today? Our Indian dining experience is fit for an A-lister!
