Salt Bae, the Turkish chef who became a viral meme a few years ago, recently opened his own restaurant in London. The internet sensation launched the first U.K. outlet of his Nusr-Et Steakhouse at the Park Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge.

The global restaurant chain spans 15 different international destinations, including New York, Dubai and Miami. The anticipated London outlet soon became one of the most famous eateries in the city.

However, the majority of consumers were left completely shocked after seeing the hefty price tags on the menu. One such visitor took the internet by storm after posting a picture of their bill on Twitter. Items in the eatery reportedly range between £17 to a whopping £700.

Meanwhile, a giant tomahawk costs as high as £630. The venue's signature dish, the giant tomahawk covered in golden leaf, stands at £700. The beverages in the restaurant are also equally expensive. A simple diet coke comes at £9, while a virgin mojito and a red bull both carry a price tag of £11.

The eye-watering price of London’s Nusr-Et Steakhouse has left the internet completely scandalized. Several social media users also called out Salt Bae for launching a heavily priced menu at his eatery.

Nusret Gokce aka Salt Bae is a Turkish chef, butcher, restaurateur and entertainer. In January 2017, he gained immense recognition after becoming a viral internet meme for his unique steak seasoning technique.

The chef posted several videos on social media, highlighting his distinct method of sprinkling salt on a steak. His videos and images went viral across the globe and soon turned him into a living meme.

The memes gave a huge boost to Salt Bae’s social media and made his restaurant chain popular among the elite. He ended up serving some of the top international celebrities in the world and established his eatery in popular world-class destinations.

After nearly three years of planning since 2018, the restaurateur finally opened a London outlet earlier this month. Unfortunately, it failed to impress most customers due to its highly expensive menu.

After one Twitter user posted a picture of their dinner receipt, netizens flocked to the platform to slam Salt Bae and his restaurant for launching a high priced menu:
