The boss of Salt Bae's London restaurant has made a shocking claim about the infamous £1,450 golden steak.
Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Knightsbridge has been mocked on social media after dishing up some astronomical prices since it's opening in September.
Mehmed, the boss of the expensive eatery, has revealed that one of its most popular dishes doesn't quite live up to the type, despite the hefty price tag.
He, incredibly, said that the gold-gilded tomahawk steak 'doesn't improve the taste or change the quality'.
However, the boss insists that the food is still 'the best in London' so diners don't mind paying an arm and a leg.
Mehmed told MyLondon: "Some people, they want to just talk.
"People have complained because they have seen bills on social media for people who’ve paid £10,000 for a bottle of wine.
"But you can find these prices all around London.
"The service and the quality we are providing is extremely high.
"It’s more interactive than most restaurants - we cook and prepare the food in front of you, like our traditional baklava, which is a very popular dessert."
Not long after opening the joint, Salt Bae left his London restaurant to set up his 28th venue in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
This means the salt sprinkling celebrity chef - whose real name is Nusret Gökçe - will no longer be making appearances at Knightsbridge's Nusr-Et.
Taking to his Instagram stories, Salt Bae wrote in November: "Sunday is my last day in London. I will go to Riyadh to open my 28th restaurant.
"Sunday is my last day in Lovely London. I want to see you beautiful people before I go."
He became a social media sensation thanks to his unorthodox seasoning method which came to light back in 2017. Now he owns a global chain of steakhouses.
The Knightsbridge restaurant is actually looking for an experienced chef de partie to join the team, offering up the 'highly competitive salary' of £12 ($16.35) to £13.50 ($18.39) per hour, plus tips.
