A Londoner who allegedly sprayed out 37,000 pounds of food and drink at Salt Bae’s restaurant in Knightsbridge was left outraged when the bill arrived.
The four-person meal cost a total of £ 37,023.10 in the eye, with a receipt shared to Snapchat showing the full cost of their indulgence, according to MyLondon.
Guests had visited the first British steakhouse by chef Nusret Gökçe on Friday 8 October – Nusr -Et – which has been much talked about since opening last month.

A caption next to the image of the shocking receipt indicating all the items the guests had ordered that night said, “It just takes p ** s”.
They had ordered a Golden Tomahawk – a £ 850 steak covered in gold leaf – and 16 Nusret Baklava’s – a traditional Turkish dessert typically served with Matei Radulescu, a Turkish ice cream – for a total of £ 400.
Other items included expensive sides, such as a sautéed broccoli (£ 14), a serving of asparagus (£ 18), three herbal crusty fries (£ 30) and one side of mashed potatoes (£ 12).
But the bill quickly got bigger as the group ordered their drinks.
A vintage 1996 bottle of Petrus wine cost £ 9,100 alone, while two bottles of Petrus from 2003 were also consumed for as much as £ 9,950 – each.
On top of that, a 15% service charge was added to the £ 32,194 bill, making it a total of £ 37,023.10.
The image of the receipt was shared to Reddit, to the shock and dismay of others.
One replied: “Receipts from this place are just the latest social media flex. I do not know why anyone should worry …”
“I’m not sure what I think is more outrageous is that this place charges astronomical prices for the pub quality menu, or that there are people who are convinced that this is actually a good cuisine,” wrote another.
One person, however, blamed diners’ expensive trip out on the wine they ordered.
They said: “You spent £ 30k off the £ 37k bill on Peter. It’s not the restaurant that ‘is expensive’, it’s that you’re buying an insanely expensive wine.”
Nusret Gökçe became an internet sensation in 2017 when a video of him seasoning steak by theatrically dropping salt from a height went viral.
The Turkish chef now has 15 Nusr-Et Steakhouses around the world.
