Ryan Reynolds says takeaway in small UK town is 'best Indian in Europe'
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds has hailed a takeaway in a small UK town as the ‘best Indian in Europe’.
Whether or not an A-lister from North America can claim much authority on the Great British pastime that is quaffing mountains of chicken tikka masala on a Saturday night remains to be seen, but nevertheless, we love to see a local restaurant get a shout-out.
Reynolds has spent his fair share of time in Ol’ Blighty since 2020, when he bought Welsh football club Wrexham A.F.C with It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s Rob McElhenney.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday (20 August), Reynolds shared a photo of the takeaway’s menu with his 44 million followers, writing: “Best Indian food in Europe.”
Holding up the menu, Reynolds underlined The Light of India’s website, which is a lovely move, but unfortunately didn’t specify his go-to order.
The Indian takeaway in question is in Ellesmere Port.
Reynolds was in the UK over the weekend to watch his team take on Maidstone United, who Wrexham thrashed 5-0.
Later this month, Reynolds and McElhenney will star in a documentary detailing their £2million takeover of the club.
Titled Welcome to Wrexham, the doc will explore how Reynolds teamed up with McElhenney to buy the Wrexham Red Dragons, a struggling team in the National League and the oldest pro football club in Wales.
The plan was for them to create an underdog story everyone can root for, but the worry is that neither of the Hollywood actors have experience working in footy or with each other.
Per the official synopsis: "Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) and Rob McElhenney (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) bought the third-oldest professional football club in the world.
"It is a Welsh team in the town Wrexham and the team is currently on the brink of dissolution.
"Welcome to Wrexham is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town’s historic yet struggling football club."
Up until this point, the Welsh club had been under fan ownership since 2011, having lost their place in the football league in 2008 before eventually falling into administration.
But the dedicated supporters kept the team alive for nearly ten years until the Deadpool and It's Always Sunny actors presented a case to buy them.
Members attached to the Wrexham Supporters' Trust overwhelmingly voted to approve the takeover bid to ensure the club had a decent shot at a future.
