A DINER has blasted Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et restaurant – for putting too much SALT in the food.
The owner Nusret Gokce, AKA Salt Bae, has made millions from his chain of international restaurants.
Salt Bae – famed for sprinkling salt – has been accused of putting too much of the stuff in the food at his London restaurant
The human meme was made famous after a video of him sprinkling the flakey stuff onto a steak in his signature Salt Bae way went viral.
Since then he has expanded his chain of eateries, with famous diners falling over themselves to get the boss to sprinkle handfuls of seasoning over their meat.
But after visiting the eatery in London this month, one diner left a Tripadvisor review entitled “one of worst places I have ever eaten”.
The reviewer wrote: “Like the brand, I have been to his place in Istanbul and it was great.
“Here the quality or meat was bad, too much salt. Food was just not good.
“Service is rude and time limit on an A la Carte restaurant?!”
It finishes with the conclusion that, “he should close this place before it ruins his reputation”.
Despite leaving the capital in November to open his 28th steakhouse in Saudi Arabia, the London restaurant is currently rated just two stars on TripAdvisor.
Censors have placed a temporary lockdown on the Nusr-Et page so no new posts can be published after an influx of negative reviews.
The negative write-ups meant the restaurant landed at 20,491 out of 23,811 venues in the city, and now TripAdvisor has banned people from leaving reviews on Nusr-Et’s page.
On the steakhouse’s TripAdvisor page, the site posted a message warning people they can no longer leave comments or reviews for the time being.
The message reads: “Due to a recent event that has attracted media attention and has caused an influx of review submissions that do not describe a first-hand experience, we have temporarily suspended publishing new reviews for this listing.
“If you’ve had a first-hand experience at this property, please check back soon – we’re looking forward to receiving your review!”
Meanwhile, Salt Bae is after a strapping £13-an-hour handyman to change his light bulbs at the venue.
A BIT SALTY
He wants the worker for his Nusr-Et restaurant in London’s Knightsbridge – where steaks encrusted in gold cost up to £1,450.
An ad reveals: “Physically strong – capable of working with machinery or moving heavy equipment.
“Basic understanding of industrial machinery such as ovens, dishwashers etc.
“Regular duties could include: Changing light bulbs and ensuring other fixtures and fittings are in good working order.
“Minor plumbing and carpentry. Clearing or cleaning general areas. Shifting furniture or equipment. Assembling furniture or equipment..
“Outdoor terrace installation and maintenance. Footpath maintenance. Painting and decorating.
“Changing filters on air conditioning systems. Maintaining property exterior through the different seasons.”
