Salt Bae restaurant latest – Nusr-et London ‘fully booked despite insane prices’ as critics slam ‘barely edible food’

DINERS at Salt Bae’s new London restaurant Nusr-et have furiously branded it "PUB FOOD".

Writing on TripAdvisor, the customer branded the restaurant's prices - which include £850 for a gold-coated steak and a £100 burger both on offer - as "ridiculous" and not worth the hype.

"Apparently 'upstairs' is actually outside. I wasn’t happy seating outside, as it was really cold." They said they were not allowed to put a gas heater on but no-one ever apologised for their treatment.

He said the service he received was "terrible" and the food "wasn't even nice", adding "It was the worst experience and the worst food we had, for the money we have spent. Just ridiculous."

  • Sam Thompson left open-mouthed as Salt Bae FLIRTS with girlfriend Zara

    SAM Thompson was left gobsmacked last night as Salt Bae flirted with his girlfriend Zara McDermott right in front of him – while completely ignoring his presence.

    The Made In Chelsea star was excited to visit the most talked about restaurant in London at the moment – Nusr-Et Steakhouse, but was shocked by the owner’s behaviour. 

    Sharing a visit from inside the venue, which famously sells a gold-coated steak for £850, Sam revealed he had been snubbed.

    He explained: “He flirted with Zara in front of my eyes. He said she had nice legs and then asked why she was so beautiful and then walked past me.”

    Despite that Sam said he didn’t care as long as Nusret Gökçe came to his table and sprinkled salt on their steak.

    And just when he thought they had been snubbed for that too, Nusret appeared and worked his magic before proceeding to feed the steak to Zara.

  • Salt Bae’s food ‘served COLD’ and branded ‘pub grub’ in scathing reviews

    SALT Bae’s “ridiculous” London restaurant has been blasted for serving “cold food” and “pub grub” in scathing online reviews.

    Brutal reviews have questioned its value for money, with raging diners dubbing it a “rip off” and “not up to standard”.

    A Trip Adviser reviewer – who went to the restaurant with three others last Friday – said: “At the start they couldn’t find our reservation. After all, they offered us a table upstairs. We agreed.

    “Apparently ‘upstairs’ is actually outside. I wasn’t happy seating outside, as it was really cold.

    “A waiter re-assured us that it’s going to be nice and warm and turned two heaters on.

    “Ten minutes later a manager came and turned heaters off and told us they don’t have a license to use gas heaters.”

  • Pictured: Young Nusret before he became famous

    INTERNET icon Salt Bae is renowned for his ultra-toned gym-god physique which he proudly flaunts on Instagram.

    But newly unearthed images of a young Nusret Gökçe in a small poverty-stricken suburb east of Istanbul where he grew up paint a different picture.

    The son of a miner, Nusret – one of five children – was taken out of school after primary due to financial pressures, forcing the budding chef to work from a young age.

    At 13 he was taken on as a butcher’s apprentice, working long hours in Turkish steakhouses for the next decade.

    A young Nusret is seen smiling in his crisp white uniform in a set of images from the butcher’s shop – while other pictures shows the future-chef lovingly admiring some cuts of meat on a slab.

  • Nusr-Et decor ‘like a decaying seaside bistro’

    SALT Bae’s London restaurant decor has been slammed as “like a decaying seaside bistro hosting a cheap Christmas do”.

    Turkish-born internet icon Nusret Gökçe has hit the headlines for the extravagant prices at his upmarket Knightsbridge eatery – with a £850 gold-coated steak and a £100 burger both on offer.

    Now, furious critics have turned to Nusr-Et’s interiors, with some blasting the decorating as like a “sh**** lobby of a hotel”.

    One Reddit user wrote: “You can’t even claim you’re going there to enjoy the ambience.

    “The place legitimately looks like an early 2000s, recently refurbished casino bistro in a sh** seaside town.”

    Another user replied: “Wow. As someone who lives in a sh** seaside town full of tacky refurb restaurants, even I’d turn my nose up at that.

    “The ambiance is ‘cheap Christmas-do on a decaying pier that does weddings on the side’, and those chairs look really uncomfortable.”

  • Inside Salt Bae Nusret’s glam life

    Success meant expansion in the US, with restaurants in Dallas, Boston, Beverly Hills and New York, as well as Mykonos in Greece.

    Celebrities including Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, DJ Khaled and Naomi Campbell flocked to the US outlets and one post on the firm’s Instagram shows Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio captivated as his tomahawk is showered with salt by the chef.

    It also brought the trappings of wealth, and in 2019, Nusret splashed out £36million on the famed Macka Palace in the Sisli district of Istanbul.

    After spending two years running his restaurants around the globe, Nusret announced he wanted to spend more time in the Turkish city and moved into an apartment within the palace which was once owned by 20th-century playwright Abdülhak Hâmid Tarhan, popularly known in Turkey as the Grand Poet.

    He is also thought to have homes in the US, where he is often pictured by a private pool in Beverly Hills, as well as riding horses on what looks like a ranch.

  • Not worth the money

    A MILLIONAIRE who went from McDonald’s straight to Salt Bae’s London restaurant has said it was not worth the money.

    Tech contractor Chiraag Suchak, 33, visited Nusr-Et for lunch having already chowed down a chicken sandwich meal at McDonald’s.

    “I would say that the food is good but it’s not worth the price that they charge,” he told MyLondon.

    “I’ve definitely had better. My friends who had the steak and the golden burger said the same."

    Another review, titled "Avoid at all cost" said: "The Gold Burger for £100 was super dry and was totally average... the £200 steak was so poor I was actually flabbergasted."

  • Salt Bae attacked by fellow chef Tom Kerridge over £630 steak

    Telly cook Tom Kerridge has attacked Salt Bae for charging £630 for a steak at his London restaurant.

    But his comment has backfired as people slammed him over his own restaurant prices which include £87 for a steak.

    Celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe, or Salt Bae as he is known, has been slammed over the astonishing prices at his restaurant in London after a receipt showing a £630 charge for a single steak went viral.

    A bill from Nusr-Et Steakhouse in the capital shows the hungry diner paid out a whopping £1,812.40 in total, including a 15% service charge of £236.40.

    Tom’s staff sparked a celebrity chef steak war after creating a sign with Tom as the face of a prime cut of beef and it read: “Tom-ahawk steak. Not £630.”

    The chef shared a snap of the sign on Twitter with the caption “Saltbae steak: £630 Some peace and quiet: priceless.”

  • Salt Bae’s very bizarre diet and workout regime revealed

    Salt Bae has made a name for himself as the king of steaks – so it’s no surprise he scoffs three a day.

    The internet sensation, real name Nusret Gökçe, also knocks back a cappuccino and grape molasses as part of his bizarre diet, which he sticks to alongside a gruelling workout regime.

    The Turkish chef has described exercise and nutrition as “like fingerprints” in that they are “personalised”.

    For the flamboyant salt sprinkler, this means two glasses of room temperature still water and four apricots to start each day.

    This is followed by one cappuccino an hour later before beginning his daily workout.

    Exercises include intense planks with his feet up walls and lifting heavy weights while balanced on a gym ball.

  • Fool’s gold

    A STEAKHOUSE is going head-to-head with Salt Bae’s London restaurant by also offering diners gold-covered steaks – but for £500 LESS.

    Nusret Gökçe, who became an internet sensation as Salt Bae, recently opened his 15th restaurant in Knightsbridge where you might catch him tossing seasoning over £630 steaks in the flesh.

    The Turkish butcher now has a global restaurant empire thanks to his theatrical steak presentation – immortalised in a 2017 video watched over 17 million times.

    But Brits hoping to visit for dinner might be better advised to book a flight to the eatery in Turkey instead – as the trip would be cheaper.

    One receipt recently posted on Twitter came to £1,812.40 – just under the average UK monthly salary.

  • Where are Salt Bae’s restaurants?

    Nusret is now the co-owner of steakhouse chain Nusr-Et (named after himself).

    According to Turkish media, its a million-dollar empire with 400 employees.
