TELLY cook Tom Kerridge has attacked Salt Bae for his £630 steak at his restaurant in London.
But his comment has backfired as people slammed him over his own restaurant prices including £87 for a steak.
Celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe or "Salt Bae", has been slammed over the astonishing prices at his restaurant in London after a receipt showing a £630 charge for a single steak went viral.
A bill from Nusr-Et Steakhouse in the capital shows the hungry diner paid out a whopping £1,812.40 in total, including a 15% service charge of £236.40.
The TV star's staff sparked a celebrity chef steak war after creating a sign with Tom as the face of a prime cut of beef and it read: “Tom-ahawk steak. Not £630.”
The chef shared a snap of the sign on Twitter with the caption "Saltbae steak: £630 Some peace and quiet: priceless."
But his followers pointed out the irony and slammed him over the prices of his posh eatery The Hand and Flowers in Marlow, Bucks.
One Twitter user said: "£87 for a steak and £25+ for a starter? People in glass houses…"
Someone added: "Did u not have a meltdown the other week when someone suggested the prices at your pub were not family-friendly ?"
Another one said: "Tom it's five and a half quid for a roll and butter at your gaff."
Someone else said: "Mate you seem like a nice guy but charge £6.50 for some roast peanuts and you can't really take the p***"
"The irony," someone commented.
The 48-year-old chef had previously sparked fury over the £12.50 cooking charge for customers' meat at one of his diners.
But the chef defended the pricing and said that customers pay raw-meat prices for steaks at his The Butchers Tap and Grill gastropub – also in Marlow.
He told his 600,000 Instagram followers: "Before any pea brained donut asks, it's not £87.
"You choose your meat at the counter at butchers prices and then get charged a £12.50 cook charge per person.
"12.50 to throw on a bbq griddle? That’s where I’m struggling pal…," one critic wrote.
