Millionaire says 'Salt Bae's' London Steakhouse is overpriced

Even millionaires think Salt Bae’s restaurant is too expensive! Wealthy diner who spent £150 on sides and soft drinks at Nusr-Et while his friends ate steaks said food is ‘not worth it’ and he’s ‘had better’

  • IT contractor Chiraag Suchak dined at ‘Salt Bae’s’ Nusr-Et Steakhouse 
  • After the meal he said the experience is the selling point and he’s ‘had better’ 
  • Said that people are paying a premium just to get a photo with Salt Bae 
  • It comes after claims restaurant deleted bad reviews after backlash over prices 

After weeks of criticism over prices, it turns out that even millionaires think Salt Bae’s London Steakhouse is overpriced. 

Turkish chef, Nusret Gökçe, rose to fame back in 2017 for his unusual meat seasoning technique where he lets salt run down his elbow, and he’s been spotted slicing meat for customers at his newly opened London restaurant, where specials include a Golden Giant Tomahwak steak for £1,450, Golden Giant Striplion for £1,350 and Golden Kafes for £500.

However, accoding to millionaire, Chiraag Suchak, 33, from London, the food at the Nusr-Et Steakhouse London in Knightsbridge is not worth the price, and that people are really just paying a premium to get a photo with Salt Bae for Instagram. 

Speaking to My London, the IT contractor who works for investment banks and describes himself as a millionaire, gave the scathing verdict, after spending £150 on food, saying: ‘I’ve had better.’

Chiraag, and his friends were tempted by the restaurant after hearing the debacle over an ‘unreasonable’ £37,000 bill that was recently shared to Reddit and quickly went viral. 

The previous customer, whose bill included a whopping £4,829.10 service charge was labelled ‘rich and stupid’ by critics.

After seeing this, Chiraag and his friends decided in a Whatsapp group to find out for themselves it the food was worth the hype, after questioning how anyone could charge £630 for steak and £11 for Red Bull. 

‘I would say that the food is good,’ admitted Chiraag, ‘but it’s not worth the price that they charge.’

Chiraag, who doesn’t eat red meat, did not go for the infamous steak meal himself, but ate fried onions and asparagus both costing £18, £12 mashed potato, chips for £10 and some non-alcoholic drinks, as well as some of his friend’s wine, spending £150 for his portion of the bill, including service charge. 

‘I’ve definitely had better. My friends who had the steak and the golden burger said the same,’ he said. 

The millionaire chalked it down to an ‘experience’ rather than a place you’d go solely for the food, and states that the advertised selfie with the chef to later upload to social media is a big part of that.

‘You’re paying to see Nusret and the way he cuts the steak with his black gloves, and that thing he does when he squeezes the burger.’ 

He predicted that the novelty of the restaurant will wear off within months after people get bored and move on to the next hyped thing.

It comes after the Nusr-Et Steakhouse was accused of deleting negative reviews  after the backlash over ‘extortionate prices’.

According to My London News, ‘a flurry of reviews appearing to criticise the restaurant when it first opened’ have since ‘disappeared. 

The restaurant now boasts 4.8 stars on Google and 4.7 stars on Facebook, where one client writes: ‘What can I say apart from WOW! Yes the prices are not cheap but you get what you pay for in regards to service, ambience and quality of food and drinks. 

‘I was lucky enough to meet Nusret and he’s a lovely, humble man. The theatre of performing the signature steak slicing by Nusret and then later the Baklava by another gentleman was absolutely fantastic.’

Only one less flattering review remains, with a customer branding it ‘too expensive’ and ‘not child friendly’. 

A customer has been slammed after spending £37.000 at celebrity restaurant Nusr-Et Steakhouse in London’s Knightsbridge 

Last month a customer’s receipt from Nusr-Et Steakhouses showed how a single steak cost £630, with four Red Bulls costing £44.

The eye-watering bill also showed how a table of eight customers had a £236.40 service charge added to their spend. 

They also paid £9 per glass of Coke, £12 for four pieces of sweetcorn and £200 for a rack of lamb, prompting outrage on social media. 

Twitter user Jamil Amin shared a picture of the receipt with the caption: ’44 great British pounds for four Red Bulls… having a laugh.’

The post racked up almost 10,000 likes with many people admitting they are shocked by the staggeringly high prices on the menu.

One person wrote: ‘What the f*** is a golden burger? £100 is it the best burger in the world? And £630 for a steak? Lol I would have refused to pay and walked out… That’s absolutely ridiculous £44 for Red Bull is also a nonsense’ 

Another said: ‘I hope the rest of the cow was given to you in a goody bag! £630 for a steak’ 

A third added: ‘£9 for a coke. Bet the glass was short and thin and filled with ice to the brim. Lol’  ‘Why is baklava £22 lmao! I need to see that portion phew,’ another wrote.
