One user commented: "Only go for the insta pics and to take a picture of the bill."

Another user pointed out: "Watch who would go to this restaurant if phones were banned."

A third said: "Lmao how is it the best restaurant if y'all only go there for the pics, y'all aint there for the food at all."

However, the sisters responded: "Actually the food was something else."

Food critic Jay Rayner recently took a stance on Salt Bae's pricey new restaurant by eating a take-away kebab outside the infamously famous Nusr-Et Steakhouse.

The 55-year-old purchased the £8.50 wrap from the cash-only takeaway 'Kebab Kid', nearby the restaurant.

Whereas, a steak from Salt Bae's - real name Nusret Gökçe - Knightsbridge eatery ranges from can you set you back £630.

In a column for The Guardian, Rayner revealed that he even brought his own table, chair and chequered tablecloth to make his message clear.

He wrote: "There are now 19 Salt Bae steakhouses worldwide, trading in stupidly expensive steaks, many of them entirely wrapped in gold leaf, flogged to people who should know better.

"They include David Beckham, Leonardo DiCaprio and the Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro. The gold-wrapped burger is £100.

"The gold-wrapped eight-hour short rib is £765. There's the 2kg Tomahawk at £1,450.

"Finish with gold-wrapped baklava for £50. Shortly after the London branch opened, a photograph of a £1,812.40 receipt for a table of six went viral, including £1.40 cans of Red Bull at £11."

Rayner said that some wanted him to visit the expensive restaurant so the food critic could 'take the place apart limb from gold-encrusted limb'.

However, he declined to do so as he claims the newspaper he writes for has 'better things to spend its money on'.

The food critic appeared to be strongly against the excessive use of 'gold' in Salt Bae's restaurant, such as the golden steak, along with the cutlery.

He concluded: "Here's the thing. Some metals are more reactive than others. Never try eating with brass cutlery.

"Your dinner will taste horrid. Stainless steel is great."
