“He was a really lovely guy, the nicest guy in the world and just like any other guests really laughing and joking, they didn’t demand any special attention.” – Told Jeffrey Ali, proprietor of the restaurant Le Raj, about Johnny.
Last July 10/11, Johnny had a dinner with Ian Hunter at the Le Raj Restaurant
a Indian restaurant in Epson, a city located one hour by car on the south-west of London.
It was revealed by Surrey Comet online that the staff at the restaurant were only made aware of his visit moments before his arrival. The Le Raj’s Proprietor Jeffrey Ali told: “It was a bit of a surprise!"
"They made sure the security and everything was ‘hunky-dory’* and then when they told me it was Johnny Depp I thought I’d misheard”
> “Hunky-dory” is a
for quite satisfactory, fine, very good, all right.
Jeffrey also revealed the menu and about their surprise in having Johnny in their restaurant
“We had some onion Bhajis and extra bits and pieces prepared for them so they could take it on their plane*. I think the onion Bhajis were their favourites of everything we did.“
"We’re quite chuffed to be honest with someone who doesn’t live anywhere near us especially. Honestly he’s the nicest chap*, really respectful to everyone and he went in the kitchen, saying hi to the staff and going out of his way to say thank you to everyone.”
> “Chap” is a expression for “man, guy, gentleman”.
This is our Johnny. No matter who you are, where you came from, your status, he will always treat you kindly.
Such a gentleman!
Ps. Jeffrey says they prepared some food for them to “take it on their plane”, so is Johnny back to California?
