Salt Bae customer claims staff member refused £10 tip

·1-min read

A diner has claimed staff turned down a £10 tip at Salt Bae’s Knightsbridge restaurant in a recent Trip Advisor review with a one-star rating.

Restaurant Nusr-Et, by Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, has made headlines recently as people flocked to the swanky eaterie to try the £1,450 steak covered in gold.

Among the sea of delighted diners, one dismayed customer said they were shocked when a tip of £10 was declined by a member of staff, who “shook their head” and refused to take it.

Matthew Hynes wrote on Trip Advisor: “The only reason we came here was to prove that its popular because of the media hype.

“Given only 30 minutes to finish the meal with a service that can only ne described as robotic and false. The steak had little flavour and we’ve had better steaks at Westherspoons on steak day !

“To top it off we got asked if a tip is possible by the server. When we offered £10 they refused it and shook their head. Keep up the great act Salt Bae.”

Representatives of Nusr-Et have been contacted for a comment.

He made headlines earlier this year when one customer at his Knightbridge Nusr-Et restaurant received a bill for £37,000 - where steaks can set you back up to £1,450.

The chef has seen celebrities from the likes of footballer Wayne Rooney and reality star Gemma Collins eat at his London steakhouse.

In November, he announced he was leaving London to open a new restaurant in Saudi Arabia.
