Snobby Salt Bae London restaurant Nusr-Et staff turned their noses up at £10 tip in front of surprised diners

SALT Bae's pricy dining is WORSE than a Wetherspoons steak, one diner said after the snooty staff turned down a £10 tip.

The Instagram sensation’s London eatery now has a paltry two out of five stars on travel bible TripAdvisor, after relentless negative reviews.

The Turkish chef, made famous for his elaborate salt sprinkling and eye-wateringly expensive gold covered steaks, is being slated by diners once again.

One customer Matthew Hynes wrote on TripAdvisor: “The only reason we came here was to prove that its popular because of the media hype.

“Given only 30 minutes to finish the meal with a service that can only be described as robotic and false.

“The steak had little flavour and we've had better steaks at Wetherspoons on steak day! 

"And to top it off we got asked if a tip was possible by the server. When we offered £10 they refused it and shook their head.

"Keep up the great act Salt Bae.”

Salt Bae became a meme sensation in 2017, having since opened a his brand of steakhouses across the globe including to London.

Celebrities have flocked to the flagship restaurant in Knightsbridge, including Wayne Rooney and TOWIE stars.

However, Salt Bae has been the target of numerous complaints, with some customers shocked at their £37k food bill.

The chain has recently been under fire for allegedly treating their staff poorly.

Recently, several other diners have taken to the TripAdvisor to complain of being turned away and having celebrations like birthdays ruined despite having reservations.

Sara wrote a week ago “Absolutely disgusting service" after her table was turned away despite having a booking.

She said: "Management extremely rude and I will be taking legal advice.. I wouldn’t even give them one star.”

Jodie echoed Sara's complaints: “We booked a table for 8, we received confirmation and then we arrived and was told we did not have a reservation.

"It was booked 8 weeks ago and it was for a birthday. I am so infuriated the service is disgusting.

"Don’t bother/waste your time.”

Previously, couples have even said it was cheaper to fly to his Turkish restaurant than pay the prices at his London flagship.

Some of the restaurant's specials include a Golden Burger for £100, a Golden Giant Tomahwak steak for £1,450, Golden Giant Striplion for £1,350 and Golden Kafes for £500.

Nusret recently admitted that the gold leaf on their £1,450 steaks does not actually improve the taste.


Najla said her party had to wait outside in the cold for 30 mins at the recently-opened Knightsbridge restaurant.

She said: “Absolutely disgusted by the stuff and whole experience."

"We had 3 burgers and only 3 alcoholic drink and couple of starters and the bill was £385 ,they do not deserve the business since they are extremely expensive but yet so rude and unprofessional !!!.”

Another diner spent more than £2,000 but the experience left a bad taste.

The person said: “The food is very average.

"We had a Nusret special, kafes, baklava, onion flower, giant tomahawk, 4 cocktails, water and kunefe. for 2 people we spent just shy over £2,200. an eye watering amount for what would be a £150 meal.

"I would describe the level of cooking as basic.

“Waiters were friendly but also a bit of a gimmick; they were making annoying sounds when they were cutting our baklava. We felt we were treated like babies.

“I guess this place is more for the elite that are on a completely different social hierarchy. 1 star for me as I couldn't justify the amount i spent for what I got.”

Salt Bae – real name Nusret Gökçe - now has 28 restaurants to his name and he is currently in Saudi Arabia overseeing the opening of his latest venue.

Some customers have complained that they were charged a £40 cancellation fee of they couldn't make their booking.

SALT Bae's newest restaurant in Saudi Arabia with £400 steaks has also been branded a "waste of money" by diners - who gave it just 1.7 stars.
