DINERS at an Elland restaurant did a double take when Peter Kay walked in.
The TV comedy star had a meal at Zam Zam in Victoria Road - and signed the comments book.
Plus, he's been back at least once since then.
Peter stars in a John Smiths beer advert set in a curry house and one of his catchphrases is: "Two lamb bhunas!"
But it was a chicken tikka masala the comic ordered in Elland.
Why Peter should be eating in the town is a mystery as the 31-year-old star of Phoenix Nights lives in Bolton with wife Susan and baby son Charlie.
But Rashid Ahmed, owner of the Asian restaurant, says: "Our customers come from all over - Barnsley, Cleckheaton and other towns.
"Bolton isn't that far away. He must just like our curries!
"It was great to see him here. He's been in with a small group of friends a couple of times.
"Peter's ordered chicken tikka masala, rice and naan breads. One of his friends had chicken jalfrezi."
The comedian, famed for his catchphrase "Garlic? Bread?" wasn't trying to stay incognito.
He delighted staff and customers when he wrote in the restaurant's comments book: "Loved the meal, but garlic naan bread!!! Garlic!! In a naan bread!"
Father-of-three Mr Ahmed, 42, who lives at of Crosland Moor, opened the restaurant in December.
It is next to a takeaway he's run for the past 12 years.
