The London branch of the famous Nusr-Et restaurants has just opened its doors, and curious customers have flooded in to try out Salt Bae's steak – even Gemma Collins is a fan.
Salt Bae – real name Nusret Gokce – is a Turkish chef, butcher, and meme royalty, best known for his wacky seasoning technique which went viral back in 2017.
Since becoming something of a household name, Nusret has taken his steakhouse international and now boasts a whopping 15 branches, with his first UK one only just opening in West London's fancy Knightsbridge.
As expected, a luxury location comes a luxury pricetag, but at £100 a burger, £630 for a Tomahawk steak, £25 for a starter and a whopping £11 for a can of Red Bull – most of us would need to save up for a visit.

Nusr-Et takes its name from both founder Nusret's moniker and 'Et' which means meat in Turkish.
Salt Bae's chain has branches in the Turkish cities of Ankara, Bodrum, Istanbul and Marmaris; Mykonos in Greece; Miami, New York, Boston, Dallas, and Beverly Hills in the United States; Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates; Doha in Qatar; Jeddah in Saudi Arabia; and now London in the UK.
Situated at the Park Tower Knightsbridge Hotel, Nusr-Et Steakhouse London is open from 9:30am to 1:30am Wednesday to Saturday, and 9:30am t0 12:30am, on Sundays to Tuesdays.
Despite only opening a matter of days ago, the restaurant has over 180 reviews on Google, and many have shared their thoughts on the pricey menu options.
Whilst Nusr-Et's online menu might show you all of the mouth-watering options available, including Beef Tenderloin, Nusr-Et Spaghetti, New York Steak, Nust-Et Kobe, Heart-Shaped Meatballs, and even traditional Turkish dessert, Baklava – the prices are nowhere to be seen.
A customer recently shared their receipt on Twitter, which has amassed a lot of attention.
The photo gives potential diners a look at the mysterious menu's astronomical prices, and it's safe to say people are shocked.
If you fancy a steak, you'll need to part with a few hundred quid, with the chain's most expensive slab of meat – a 24K Tomahawk – setting you back £700.
The receipt shows the customers paid £630 for their Tomahawk, £100 for the Nusr-Et Burger, £25 for a burrata and £18 for an onion flower.
However, it's the drink prices and their mark-ups which really shocked people, as two Diet Cokes total to £18, and one Red Bull is £11.
A sole virgin Mojito cocktail also cost the customer £11 at the restaurant, with the bill coming up to a pretty hefty £1,812.
Captioning a re-posted image of the receipt, one Twitter user wrote "It’s cheaper to fly and have food at Salt Bae’s Turkish restaurant than to go to the London one.
"£9 for coke. £630 for Tomahawk steak. No thank you."
