The viral sensation has caused quite the stir with the launch of his London venue, notably due to its eye-wateringly pricey menu, including a 'Giant Tomahawk' steak costing a whopping £630 ($865).
However, while you might have to sell your house or join OnlyFans if you want to eat there, it seems his staff aren't getting a huge slice of the revenue.
Earlier this month, the Knightsbridge eatery announced it was looking for an experienced chef de partie to join its team, offering up the 'highly competitive salary' of £12 ($16.35) to £13.50 ($18.39) per hour, plus tips.
To put that into context, £12 is what the restaurant charges for a portion of mashed potato.
And if that weren't surprising enough, a new ad calling for a cocktail waiter at the South West London Nusr-Et has revealed that the position offers £15-an-hour - more than the chefs preparing the expensive dishes.
The listing on Caterer.com says: "We are currently looking for experience and passionate Cocktail Waiter/Waitress to join our family.
"The ideal candidate will be experienced in selling and upselling cocktails and spirits with solid knowledge in cocktails and premium spirits.
"We are looking for a candidate who is lively, friendly, animated, and thrives on customer service. This is a full-time role, working any 5 days a week, mainly in the evenings and weekends, so flexibility is required."
You'd think of all restaurants, Nusr-Et London wouldn't struggle to find staff, but it seems even Salt Bae's much-hyped eatery is struggling with labour shortages.
The restaurant recently held three open recruitment days, but when an Evening Standard reporter headed down to check out the buzz, they were shocked to find nobody there.
The reporter wrote: "I am surprised to see no queues or crowds - in fact, there's not a single person outside eagerly clutching their CV.
"Maybe I've got the wrong day. I ask the doorman who tells me a few people had turned up over the three recruitment days, 'maybe, over 20,' he says in a slightly higher tone that makes me think he's exaggerating."
Since the restaurant opened, it's received a high level of media attention due to the flashy food and high prices.
Despite the mixed reviews, you can't knock the Turkish chef, real name Nusret Gökçe, for well and truly cashing in on what could have been his 15 minutes of fame.
The 38-year-old rose to internet stardom back in 2017 thanks to his eccentric method of salting and presenting meat.
Since then, he's gone on to open a 15-strong luxury steakhouse chain around the world, Nusr-Et, with the London venue opening earlier this year.
