Salt Bae’s London restaurant has a lavish chef program. However, the hourly wage is almost the same as the price of mashed potatoes on the menu.
The celebrity hotspot Nusr-Et Steakhouse is in Knightsbridge and is owned by Nusret Gokce (turkish butcher-turned-chef), better known as Salt Bae. His theatrical season-sprinkling antics earned him more than 38 million followers on Instagram since 2017.
In need of a Chef de Partie to join the UK branch of Nusret’s chain, the restaurant advertised the role on Caterer.com and is offering just £12 an hour, plus tips, which is the price of mashed potatoes or sweet corn at the newly opened upscale eatery.
Customer receipts from Salt Bae’s restaurant has proved too much to stomach for some Britons after they went viral for showing the staggering costs – with a single steak priced at £630 and just four Red Bulls costing £44.

But the restaurant has been widely slammed by critics and foodies, with the Guardian’s Jay Rayner taking a £8.50 kebab from Fulham’s Kebab Kid to eat outside the restaurant in protest.
Jimi Famurewa, an Evening Standard restaurant critic, described the food as ‘categorically poor’ and said that the clientele included ‘wealthy new parents, bored-looking children, super-rich children that always have one AirPod in, tanned fiftysomethings with suburban hot tub owners, and groups of young aspirant influencer girl in swishy gowns.
There has been controversy since the opening, with some bad reviews being removed from Google.
Last month a customer’s receipt went viral after totalling a staggering £1,812.40, earning the restaurant an onslaught of backlash, however Google reviews currently show a 4.8 star rating – with the site stating it was ‘updated by the business a week ago.
My London News claims that there was a flurry in reviews that criticised the restaurant at its first opening. These reviews have since ‘disappeared.
