Darjeeling Express is an Indian restaurant in London founded by Asma Khan, who leads a kitchen operated solely by women. Writing about Anil and Sonam’s visit to her restaurant, Asma wrote on Instagram, “They were so warm and charming-the father & daughter duo and family came to our restaurant last night- @anilskapoor and @sonamkapoor took time to talk to all the chefs- AK surprised the kitchen team by visiting the kitchen (the shrieking & clapping was deafening when he walked into the kitchen!) Sonam took time to talk to all the girls and told them how she enjoyed each dish she had eaten. What an incredible experience for the team. When the girls came up to the dining room to thank them- they broke into song!
