Instagram-famous chef Salt Bae’s first UK restaurant in London has reported making a staggering £7 million in sales during its first four months of opening last year.
A financial report filed to the UK’s Companies House by Nusret UK Limited, which owns the Nusr-Et Steakhouse in London’s Knightsbridge, showed that the restaurant made the total amount in sales since opening in September 2021.
The company’s accounts also showed that the Nusr-Et London restaurant made £2.3 million in profit in 2021.
With previous reports of customers at the restaurant paying more than £1,800 for their meal last year, the chef, who has almost 50 million followers on Instagram, was bound to draw a large crowd of high-paying customers to the restaurant.
The 39-year-old, whose real name is Nusret Gokce, opened his first restaurant in Istanbul, Turkey, the country where he was raised, in 2010.
Nusret, which employed 55 members of staff in the UK at the end of last year, currently operates 22 restaurants around the world, including seven in the USA and nine in Turkey.
