Melbourne: Hollywood heartthrob Brad Pitt chose Indian naan and butter chicken over gourmet cuisine during his solitary trip to New Zealand.
The superstar surprised the staff at Tulsi restaurant, a small Indian eatery near Wellington's film centre, when he dropped in alone for an early dinner.
The one-half of Hollywood power couple Brangelina, the 45-year-old actor sat in a corner booth and ordered chicken korma, butter chicken and garlic naan, said a press release from Tourism Board New Zealand.
The mystery diner, recognised as Pitt, tried to keep things low key by wearing nondescript clothing and a cap.
Speculation suggests that Pitt was here to discuss a possible movie venture with acclaimed Kiwi filmmaker Sir Peter Jackson.
Other reports claim that he's on a solitary trip, temporarily swapping Angelina and his six kids for a laid-back break.
