The sky-high prices at social media sensation Salt Bae’s new London restaurant have already raised many eyebrows, but one customer’s astronomical bill has left everyone flabbergasted.

As a debate over Nusr-Et’s costly gold-adorned steaks raged on social media with some suggesting the £37,000 bill must be a “PR stunt”, the party of four themselves were presumably left rueing their life choices.

The bill amounted to a shocking £37,023 according to a post shared to Reddit and reported by numerous news outlets including The Independent

“Nusr-Et steakhouse now this is just outrageous…” The Reddit post reads, while the original Snapchat image of the receipt is simply captioned, “That’s just taking the p*ss.”

The party of four certainly didn’t scrimp on high tariff items, choosing one of the 24-carat gold tomahawk steaks, which alone sets you back £850.

And when it came to the wine, the group certainly had expensive taste.

The itemised bill shows that the party of four enjoyed a 1996 Petrus priced at £9,100, two bottles of 2003 Petrus at a total cost of £19,900, and two bottles of Dom Pérignon Rosé 2006 for £1,620. Quite a lineup.

Reddit commenters were quick to express their outrage at the whole affair.

“I am not sure what I find more scandalous, that this place charges astronomical prices for pub quality menu, or that there are people convinced that this is actually good cuisine,” one Redditor wrote.

Another commenter thought they’d sniffed out a PR stunt, though, writing, “no one who buys Petrus or a LITERALLY gold encrusted steak is going to be shocked at the price of either of those two things”.

Meanwhile, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has been blasted for pricing fish and chips at £32 at his new London restaurant inside The Savoy hotel.
