Despite notorious Turkish restaurateur Nusret Gökçe (Salt Bae) being an internet sensation, not even his clout can save the reputation of this eatery.
Although the Nusr-et is described on its website as an ‘internationally acclaimed destination, serving celebrity clientele’, it's been rated in the bottom one per cent of the UK's restaurants, according to Trip Advisor.
Look, we understand that the average online review can usually be attributed to a keyboard warrior; however, we can’t ignore the hundreds of bad reviews pouring out.
Only 69 places are considered worse.
One reviewer wrote: “Nothing from another world. Too much salt and I had tried better meat for less price. People these are becoming more ridiculous and superficial.”
Another said in part: “Only a fool would eat at a place like this...or maybe a wannabe influencer. This is a fad shop with a guy riding a following of those who like watching him play with meat.
“He is not a chef, nor does his restaurant offer anything that exceeds expected and basic qualities of the food which is served.”
A third person commented: “The waiters were annoying and unprofessional. The food was cold and way overvalued. Can’t recommend anyone to go there.”
While another wrote: “I can’t express the excitement that I had on me when I got there to try the most famous delightful meat that I have heard and wondered about for a long time.. to my disappointment it was truly the worst meat I had in my life!!”
It’s hard to take all these with just a grain of salt.
It also doesn't help that some diners have alleged they were treated badly during their visit.
According to the visitor, who had gone to the celebrity chef's London restaurant, they had to go and ask about their sides as there were none delivered, to which they were answered by a member of staff in a 'short and blunt' manner.
They went on to explain that when the sides did arrive at the table, they were warned that there was only half an hour to eat up so that they could get other diners to the table.
