Salt Bae sparks fury after bragging about a customer’s £140,584 bill at his Abu Dhabi restaurant

Salt Bae was criticized on social media after boasting that a customer’s bill came to a staggering £140,584 – with a single steak costing £1,030.

The Turkish millionaire restaurant owner, known for his gold-leaf steaks and his trademark salt-strewing attitude, was criticized on Instagram by commenters who called the prices “insane” and “hugely selfish.”

The eye-watering bill came from Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et Steakhouse restaurant in Abu Dhabi, where 14 diners paid 615,065 dirhams (£140,584), meaning it cost 43,933 dirhams (£10,041) per person.

It is not known whose eye-watering bill belonged to. But a number of high profile people are currently visiting Abu Dhabi with Formula 1 starting on Friday 18 November, and neighbor Qatar hosting the Fifa World Cup starting on Sunday 20 November.

The eye-watering bill was from Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et Steakhouse restaurant in Abu Dhabi and cost 615,065 dirhams (£140,584).

But the diners weren’t done there yet. They also spent 1,200 dirhams (£273) on five portions of beef carpaccio, a starter of thinly sliced ​​raw meat, and 320 dirhams (£73) on four blooming onions.

For four portions of fries alone, the influencer chef charged 180 dirhams (£41) and 5,850 (£1,335) for gold-covered baklava.
