The upscale Chinese eatery, situated in New York, is a favourite among the A-list, with Cuba Gooding Jr., Rita Ora and Will.i.am previously visiting for some food.

When Mick swung by Philippe’s earlier this week (beg14Nov16) with a group of five, plus security, he reportedly left a $500 (£405) tip for a $478 (£388) bill.

TMZ reports Mick and his friends ordered big, tucking into lettuce wraps, tuna tartare, chicken satays and green prawns for starters. The party then moved onto an order of Mr. Cheng's Noodles and Peking duck, before finishing with Baked Alaska for dessert.

Eyewitnesses say The Rolling Stones legend ate his meal quickly and was very polite to staff.

Mick joins a growing list of 2016’s most generous celebrity tippers, which also includes Jim Carrey, who is said to have left $225 (£182) for a $151 (£122) bill and Amy Schumer, who went one better, by gifting a lucky waitress $1,000 (£810) on a $77 (£62) tab at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre when she watched Hamilton.
