BBC Ant-Man: Indian restaurant in London where star Paul Rudd eats whenever he’s in the UK


American actor Paul Rudd needs no introduction to the average Brit, having enjoyed a successful film career dating back to 1991 on both sides of the Atlantic. The Avengers: Endgame and 40-year-old Virgin star, 52, have been married to wife Julie Yaeger for nearly 20 years, and the couple share two children together – Jack and Darby.

Although originally from the United States, Paul has undoubtedly made a name for himself in the UK. Like us Londoners, he has a favorite restaurant in the city, and it’s the one he frequents every time he comes.

Paul Rudd has visited Darjeeling Express in the heart of Covent Garden many times, and he returns every time he visits London. Chef Asma Khan tweeted a photo of her and Rudd, who was accompanied by fellow actor Dan Levy, on a trip to the capital last summer. The post has racked up over 180,000 likes.

The restaurant – which is ranked in the top 10% of places to eat in London – offers a three-course menu for just £40pp, and includes options like steamed dumplings, spiced lamb and cooked apricots.

The most recent review of Darjeeling Express on TripAdvisor gave the establishment five stars, with one satisfied customer saying, “Brilliant chef Asma Kahn and staff serve up amazing Indian dishes that are beautifully spiced and sauced.

“The restaurant itself is a respite from the frenetic street traffic in Covent Garden. Book ahead as it’s a popular spot, with good reason.”

Another review from last month said: “My husband and I saw this restaurant on a previous visit but couldn’t get a reservation so we booked a good few weeks in advance and went on our next visit to London, well worth the wait Staff are fantastic, very welcoming and friendly and the food was so delicious.

Paul Rudd fans can catch him starring in the action drama Ant Man on BBC Two One today (Saturday February 5) at 4.15pm. The film sees a petty crook trying to go straight to pleasing his ex-wife and their daughter.

Things quickly turn sour, however, as his inability to land a steady job soon sees him revert to his old ways. When he breaks into a scientist’s house and finds a strange-looking bodysuit, Rudd is shocked to discover its incredible size-changing powers.
