Salt Bae: Couple fly to Turkey to eat at steakhouse and find flights, meal and holiday cheaper than eating at London location

A couple who decided to fly to Istanbul and dine at Salt Bae’s Nusr-Et restaurant found it significantly cheaper than dining at the London hotspot.

Speaking to The Sun, Foodies Fahd and Nashwa, who run the @halalfood.reviews, said that they booked a flight to Turkey as they couldn’t afford to eat at the popular £1450 tomahawk steak restaurant.

So instead, the pair came up with the novel idea of enjoying the sought after steak with sides for £110, by hopping on a 4 hour and 45 minute flight to Turkey.

Even after rounding up the total for the couple’s meal, flight and holiday, it was still less costly than dining at the UK celebrity haunt.

They said: “The food was great . . . worth the hype.”

“We realised it was cheaper to travel all the way to Turkey, enjoy a holiday, eat at Nusret’s, fly back and it’ll still be cheaper than a single meal at the London restaurant”.

“If we could afford to spend thousands at the London branch, we would but since we can’t, Istanbul it is!”

Manager of the Nusr-Et in London recently spoke to exclusively to MyLondon defending the astronomical menu prices that have caught headlines.

Mr Mehmed said: “Some people, they want to just talk.

“People have complained because they have seen bills on social media for people who’ve paid £10,000 for a bottle of wine.

“But you can find these prices all around London.

“The service and the quality we are providing is extremely high.”

Those visiting the restaurant will find Salt Bae sprinkling salt onto large pieces of meat in a dramatic fashion – which launched him into social media fame.

Celebrities and the ultra-rich now flock to Knightsbridge restaurant hoping to get a slice of Nusret Gökçe’s cooking and a cheeky selfie.
