Nusr-et charges whopping £5,000 for service
A DINER at Salt Bae’s London restaurant was slapped with a mammoth £5,000 service charge after racking up a bill totalling more than the UK’s average salary.
After splashing out £37,023.10 at the Nusr-et venue in Knightsbridge, the bill-payer shared a snap of the eye-watering receipt and accused Turkish-born internet icon Nusret Gökçe of “taking the p**s”.
The critic forked out £850 for the Golden Tomahawk, as well as £400 for 16 Baklavas, £14 for sautéed broccoli and £12 for a side of mashed potato.
On top of that, they paid £9,100 for a vintage 1996 bottle of Petrus, and £19,900 for two bottles of 2003 Petrus.
But to add salt to the wound, the diner was then stung with a 15 per cent service charge of £4,829.10
After eating at the restaurant last Friday, the receipt was screenshotted from Snapchat and shared to Reddit with the caption: “That’s just taking the p**s.”
