Salt Bae slammed over his food prices after diner shares £85,000 bill

Salt Bae slammed over his food prices after diner shares £85,000 bill

That's some expensive steak

Sometimes, a good steak is worth the money. But when you're spending £85,000 on one food bill, it's probably a bit over the top, right?

Well, celebrity chef Salt Bae - who is known for his astronomical prices - has been slammed after one diner shared their restaurant bill - and it's pretty eye-watering.

The bill came in at a whopping AED398,630 (£85,000) from Salt Bae's restaurant, Nusr-Et in Dubai.

The steak chef himself - whose real name is Nusret Gokce - shared the bill on his social media account and people can't believe the breakdown.

Three golden steaks came in at a whopping £1,100, meanwhile one diner enjoyed a £60 beef carpaccio and a portion of fries that cost over a tenner.

Even Salt Bae's special salt seasoning seems to be priced at over £30 per person.

But what really bumped the price up was both the tip - which was a whopping £19,000 - and £56,000 on cocktails and drinks.


The bill came to £85,000.

Salt Bae himself captioned the photo: "Money comes, money goes."

But people were disgusted with the extortionate display, with many thinking the prices were outrageous.

One person commented: "In my opinion the service there doesn’t not deserve a 90k tips."

While another said: "Shameful as millions of people suffer from hunger."

And a third added: "That would fed at least 100,000 children in hunger around the world! How embarrassing!"

Meanwhile a fourth commented: "Imagine being this wealthy... and then blowing it on overpriced food."

Others pointed out that the bill was more than what they earn in three years.

Salt Bae originally shot to fame over his rather unique way of sprinkling salt on people's food.

His restaurant chain, Nusr-Et, now has 20 locations, including Turkey, Greece, the States and the UK, with a string of celebrity guests such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Usher.

Before he became known across the globe as Salt Bae, the chef described putting in the work from the age of 12, when he says he left school and began working as a butcher's apprentice to help out his family with money.

"I woke up at 6 o’clock, two hours on the train commute and 30 minutes after the train on the bus. Then all day long, standing and working. No day off and no vacation," the butcher told The Times in 2019.
