Salt Bae has given fans a glimpse inside his new 'record-breaking' restaurant in Saudi Arabia, billing the space as being 'like a heaven'. Take a look below:


The Turkish chef, whose real name is Nusret Gökçe, opened his 28th Nusr-Et steakhouse at Riyadh's U-Walk complex yesterday.

He recently announced he would be leaving the new Knightsbridge restaurant in London, which opened in September, saying: "I will go to Riyadh to open my 28th restaurant."

According to The Sun, it is believed the social media icon has at least 13 other restaurants alongside his 15 Nusr-Et Steakhouses in glitzy locations including Miami and Dubai.

After opening doors to his new gaff in Saudi Arabia, Salt Bae posted a series of photos and videos on his Instagram Stories to show diners what to expect, writing: "Like a heaven. We are open."

The celebrity chef posed for photos in his trademark shades, having also donned a black bow tie for the special occasion.

One picture showed a man whispering something into Salt Bae's ear, with a caption saying: "He [gave] me the secret news. He said 'We'll break a record tonight'."

However, the chef didn't specify what he meant by this - only later confirming that that record had been broken with a video of his feet being rubbed at 2.45am.

"After record," the clip said.

In another snap, he paid tribute to his 'great team', smiling for the camera with them from the head of a table.

A promotional video then showed crowds of people enjoying the new restaurant as Salt Bae served up steak in his well-known flamboyant style - at one point slicing through one of his infamous infamous gold-covered cuts.

The folk at news outlet WhatsOnSaudiArabia were offered a 'peek inside' the space, saying the restaurant is 'enormous'.

"Through the heavy, herringbone-patterned double doors, polished tables are spread out across the huge open plan dining area, with a large oval bar covered in a display of fresh fruits near the entrance," the site says.

"An army of dapper, white-suited waiters wearing black gloves meander around the tables making sure everything is just so.

"In the corner, slabs of meat are encased in glass display cabinets with a long butcher counter at the rear of the restaurant. There are plenty of cuts to choose from so meat-lovers are sure to find something they'll love at Nusr-Et Riyadh."
