Arnold Schwarzenegger wowed Toronto restaurant staff with a surprise visit
The famous Terminator is in town, and it’s being spotted all over Toronto. On Saturday, Arnold Schwarzenegger was spotted at this famous Toronto restaurant, where apparently no one really noticed him until he left.
“Hasta la vista, baby!”
Schwarzenegger surprised people at Toronto’s famous Japanese restaurant, Akira Back in the Bisha Hotel.
The restaurant’s general manager, Attilio Di Donato, told Narcity that it was not a planned visit. “The team was blown away as it was an unexpected visit and the first time we were in his presence.”
“Our other customers didn’t seem to notice Arnold until he left, at which time everyone in the restaurant was buzzing with excitement,” the manager added.
The celebrity was not dining alone, he was with his son Patrick. According to the restaurant, they ordered “Yellowtail Serrano, Salmon Tataki and Show Me The Roll”.
Meeting Schwarzenegger in real life can be quite intimidating, mostly because of his deep looks and huge muscles, as seen in his films, but he is “very friendly and humble”.
The former California governor apparently also has a sense of humor. Akira Back told Narcity that he was “laughing and joking with our team members.”
Di Donato said he seemed to be really enjoying his time at Akira Back, and hope the restaurant workers heard the Terminator say, “I’ll be back.”
The actor was also spotted biking around Yorkville over the weekend, because who wasn’t.
One excited person posted a video on TikTok of them trying to catch up with the star in Yorkville on a sunny day over the weekend. But unfortunately the perfect shot didn’t happen and Schwarzenegger was gone.
But hopefully Torontonians will see more of him while he’s in town filming his new Netflix series, utap.
