A millionaire who recently dined at Salt Bae steakhouse in London, after eating at McDonald’s for the first time, has claimed that the new restaurant is “not worth the price.”

Since chef Nusret Gökçe opened his new Nusr-Et Steakhouse in Knightsbridge last month, diners have been surprised by the prices on the menu, with numerous customers expressing dismay at their late-night bills.

And according to Chiraag Suchak, a 33-year-old IT contractor who works for investment banks and identifies as a millionaire, a barbecue meal isn’t even worth it.

Suchak reflected on his experience dining at the viral chef’s newest establishment while speaking to MyLondon, where he revealed that his friends had expressed interest in going to Nusr-Et after seeing the various exaggerated bills that have been circulating on social media, and adds: “How could a man justify charging £ 11 for a Red Bull or £ 630 for a steak?”

According to Suchak, the opportunity came shortly after he had finished a chicken sandwich at McDonald’s, and the IT contractor recalled how a friend informed him shortly after that they had reservations at the Salt Bae restaurant.

At the steakhouse, Suchak, who describes himself as a vegetarian in addition to eating chicken, ordered fried onions for 18 pounds, asparagus for 18 pounds, mashed potatoes for 12 pounds and French fries for 10 pounds, according to the outlet. , who noted that he was a bit surprised and “disappointed” by the lack of chicken menu options. In addition to some non-alcoholic beverages and some of his friend’s wine, he told MyLondon that his share of the bill, which includes a 15 percent service charge, was £ 150.

When asked about the food, Suchak began by acknowledging that he was “not even that hungry” when he arrived at the restaurant, before admitting it was good, but not thinking it was worth the price.

“I’d say the food is good, but it’s not worth the price they charge,” he said, adding that “he’s definitely done better.”

He wasn’t the only one who thought that, as he pointed out that his friends, who ordered the steak and the 100-pound golden burger, came to the same conclusion. According to Suchak, from what his friends said, “the steak is definitely not surprising.”

In the end, he concluded that people go to the steakhouse for the “experience” and that diners are actually paying for the “hype.”

“You really like the experience, the atmosphere and taking a selfie with the chef. You’re paying to see Nusr-Et and the way he cuts the steak with his black gloves, and what he does when he squeezes the burger, ”he said. “You are paying for advertising.”

The criticism comes after social media users suggested that the expensive menu and viral receipts must be a “public relations stunt” after a photo posted on Reddit showed the £ 37,023 (£ 50,000) note. $ 888) presented to a table of four after a recent meal at the restaurant.
