Famous Turkish chef Nusret GÃ¶kÃ§e, also known as Salt Bae, has opened an outlet in London, the capital of England, and has been criticized for setting exorbitant prices for his food products.
Salt Bae became a sensation in the food industry when photos of him cooking meat with a sprinkle of salt were shared on social media in 2017.
Since then, he has opened restaurants in famous cities around the world, namely Dubai, New York, Saudi Arabia, Greece, Boston and Dallas.
The chef, in an Instagram post, had announced that he would open a point of sale in London on September 23, 2021.
A Twitter user, who apparently dined at the Salt Bae restaurant, shared the bill showing the exuberant costs of his items. His total bill was 1,812 pounds or 417,084.39 Rs.

This did not please the netizens who expressed their dissatisfaction in the comments section.
Absolutely ridiculous. Can’t believe anyone can justify these prices just because it’s a London restaurant .. 15% service charge ?. I bet the staff only pay the living wage.
This is not good value for money, it is extortion !!

The restaurant is rated 2.5 / 5 on Google reviews. Some of the one star reviewers are just trolling people, but others have posted their bills worth a lot. I don’t know who to blame, the restaurant for being a jerk or these people for having more money than common sense. Blame them both.

This is not the first time that customers have caused problems for restaurant staff over the cost of their food.
A woman at a Chinese restaurant in the Australian city of Adelaide has been the subject of a judicial investigation after arguing with a waiter and eventually biting him over the price of fish.
The court was told that Chungping Quan ordered half of a barramundi, but was told that they only served the whole fish.
