Salt Bae news – Nusr-et fans all saying same thing about menu prices, including £50 gold cappuccino & £1,350,00 steaks

SALT BAE has come a long way from his time as a butcher's apprentice in his native Turkey – and his menu prices show it.

Some of the cheapest items on the menu – beyond the notorious £850 gold-coated steak – are still enough to break the bank if you are not careful.

A single meatball with cheese will set you back £180 while even a 'gold-covered' cappuccino will cost you £50.

Burrata – a type of cheese typically served with tomatoes as a starter – will cost your £25 per head.

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.

    Hand in meat-rimony

    DINERS in Salt Bae’s restaurant in Greece were left stunned after he pulled an engagement ring from a £200 rack of ribs.

    In a video posted on his Instagram page, Nusret “Salt Bae” Gökçe placed the £200 slab of meat onto the couple’s table at his restaurant in Mykonos.

    The unsuspecting girlfriend took out her phone to film Salt Bae cut up the ribs, when the Turkish chef plucks the ring out of the meat to hand to her partner.

    The couple embrace as diners watch on in shock and applaud for the newly engaged couple.

    Filmed in 2019, the video has amassed nearly eight million views.

    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.”

    Salt Bae forced to pay $230,000 to ex-waiters ‘for conning them out of tips’ & FIRING them

    SALT Bae has been forced to pay ex-staff members $230,000 after being accused of conning them out of tips and firing them when they complained.

    The chef turned internet star Nusret Gökçe reportedly kept his servers in the dark about how much they collected in gratuity payments and “retained” them for himself.

    The Turkish born-butcher was served with a lawsuit by four ex-servers who worked for him at his Manhattan restaurant, Nurs-Et, in 2019.

    The men alleged that Gökçe pooled tips among unentitled staff and shaved 3 per cent off the total amount of tips.

    “Customers reasonably believed 100 percent of the gratuity was being remitted to the waiters and other serving staff,” one of the sacked staff members said at the time.

    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.
    Nusr-et’s restaurant locations are spread across the globe.

    You can find them in:

    • Ankara
    • Bodrum
    • Marmaris
    • Istanbul
    • Dubai
    • Abu Dhabi
    • Doha
    • Jeddah
    • Miami
    • New York
    • Mykonos
    • Boston
    • Dallas
    • Beverly Hills
    • London

     

    ‘You pay for a picture, not the food’

    On Google reviews, one customer wrote: “Amazinggg but overpriced though,” while another said it was “not child friendly”.

    Nusr-Et’s was slammed on review site Squaremeal.

    One eater gave the restaurant two stars, writing: “If you want to eat, go look for some other places. Here you don’t pay your food, you pay the picture and the video you take with Bae.”

    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 hailed as a ‘genius’

    SALT Bae has been hailed a “genius” for keeping his London restaurant fully booked despite HUGE prices including £850 steak.

    Turkish-born internet icon Nusret Gökçe has hit the headlines for the extravagant prices at his upmarket Knightsbridge eatery – which include a £100 burger and an £11 Red Bull.

    But that hasn’t deterred curious diners from booking out the restaurant every night.

    Restauranteur Nikolas Opacic – who owns Manchester celeb-haunt Seven 54 – hailed him as a “genius”.

    Nikolas told The Evening Standard : “I think he’s a genius. He is fully booked with insane prices.

    “If people can afford it and want to experience it, let them. He’s a genius if he can fill a restaurant with those prices.”

    Before they were 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.


     

    What is Nusret’s net worth?

    Gökçe opened his first Nusr-Et steakhouse in Istanbul in 2010.
    The brand grew, and he opened restaurants across the Middle East, including in Ankara, Doha and Dubai.

    It was then that Gökçe shot to viral internet fame – and it allowed him to open a total of 13 restaurants within the year, expanding into America and Greece.

    In 2021, he opened the first London Branch of the chain in the posh area of Knightsbridge, bringing the number of restaurants worldwide to an impressive 15.

    However, a meal at one of his establishments will cost you!
    Due to the success of the chain (and the high prices), it’s now estimated that Salt Bae’s net worth is around $60million (£46.7m).

    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.

      Inside Dani Dyer’s date with Jarrod Bowen to Nusr-Et Steakhouse

      LOVE Island star Dani Dyer and her new man Jarrod Bowen enjoyed a luxury date night to Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et Steakhouse this week.

      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.

      Decor slammed ‘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.
