Salt Bae’s £1,450-a-steak London restaurant is hiring a chef – but the £12 hourly wage won’t even pay for a side portion of sweetcorn from the menu

  • Salt Bae’s lavish Knightsbridge restaurant Nusr-Et Steakhouse is hiring chefs 
  • The celebrity hotspot is owned by Turkish butcher-turned-chef Nusret Gokce
  • In need of a Chef de Partie, the restaurant advertised the role on Caterer.com

Salt Bae’s lavish London restaurant is hiring chefs – but the hourly wage might prove hard to take as the amount is the same as the cost of mashed potato on his menu.

The celebrity hotspot Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Knightsbridge is owned by Turkish butcher-turned-chef Nusret Gokce, better known as Salt Bae, whose theatrical season-sprinkling antics have earned him more than 38million followers on Instagram since he went viral in 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.

The Nusr-Et’s job advert is seeking an ‘experienced’ Chef de Partie – who is usually in charge of a particular area of production in a restaurant – to join the team.

It says the successful applicant ‘will be working with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.’

However, the chef will be paid just £12.00 to £13.50 per hour plus tips – despite the menu’s staggering prices.

The vacancy on Caterer.com reads: ‘Amazing opportunity for an experienced Chef De Partie to join Nusret team in the new restaurant in London!

‘As a Chef De Partie, you will be working with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in the one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.

‘You will play a vital part in a large team and will support the Head Chef during service. 

‘To the successful candidate Nusret London offers a highly competitive salary and excellent opportunities to develop a global career.

‘If you’re a Chef de Partie looking to work the famous steakhouse, send your CV, we want to hear from you!’

Nusret, 38, currently has 17 restaurants in his successful chain and has a legion of celebrity devotees including DJ Khaled, Leonardo DiCaprio and David Beckham.

He opened his London branch in October, with reality stars and influencers keen to get a taste of the internet celebrity’s dishes.

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.

Evening Standard restaurant reviewer Jimi Famurewa described the food as ‘categorically bad and called the clientele ‘wealthy, bored-looking new parents, super-rich kids that always keep one AirPod in, tanned fifty-somethings with the air of suburban hot tub owners and groups of young aspirant influencer girls in swishy dresses.’

There’s also been controversy since opening, including bad reviews reportedly being deleted 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.

According to My London News, ‘a flurry of reviews appearing to criticise the restaurant when it first opened’ have since ‘disappeared’. 

London diners will be able to get their hands on the 24-Carat gold Tomhawk steak, which has previously been a menu item in their Dubai branch (pictured)

The restaurant now boasts 4.8 stars on Google and 4.7 stars on Facebook, where one client writes: ‘What can I say apart from WOW! Yes the prices are not cheap but you get what you pay for in regards to service, ambience and quality of food and drinks. 

‘I was lucky enough to meet Nusret and he’s a lovely, humble man. The theatre of performing the signature steak slicing by Nusret and then later the Baklava by another gentleman was absolutely fantastic.’

Only one less flattering review remains, with a customer branding it ‘too expensive’ and ‘not child friendly’.  

Last month a customer’s receipt from Nusr-Et Steakhouses showed how a single steak cost £630, with four Red Bulls costing £44.

The eye-watering bill from ‘Salt Bae’s’ newly opened restaurant in London’s Knightsbridge also shows the table of eight customers had a £236.40 service charge added to their spend. 

Elsewhere, the customers paid £9 per glass of coke, £12 on four pieces of sweetcorn and £200 on a rack of lamb.
