While many a restaurant promises a meal "fit for a king", the phrase now rings true for a York curry house after the future monarch, Prince William, dropped by to sample a dish on the menu entitled Royal Delight.
The owner of the establishment had been expecting a large booking, but was stunned when the 25-year old royal - currently undergoing pilot training at a nearby RAF station - walked in with 46 friends and Army colleagues on Wednesday night.
"I was amazed," said Mohammed Omar. "I couldn't believe we had a royal here. The customers were going crazy."
The majority of Prince's party opted for the £7.95 house special, Royal Delight. The dish was named after the establishment's chef cooked the marinated chicken recipe for Wills' mother, Princess Diana, at a function at the Dorchester hotel.
