Salt Bae boasts 'I'm like a British' as he shares farewell to London in bizarre video

SALT Bae has sensationally bid goodbye to the UK – claiming he's "like a British".

The restaurateur is leaving the UK to open a new spot in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


In the footage, the 38-year-old – whose real name is Nusret Gökçe – boasts about basically being an honorary Brit as he bids farewell to the capital.

He says: "Hold on, I want to say something about London.

"London is my big dream, some day, next day, every day, all the time, In love London – London is different."

The ripped restaurant-owner can be seen wearing his signature Lennon-style sunnies and a tight grey tee.

He boasts: "My English, almost like a British. You know, cheers."

The chef adds: "Hope to hear you soon London."

Mr Bae is jetting off to the Middle East to open the newest outpost of his business, with at least 13 other eateries alongside his 15 Nusr-Et Steakhouses under his belt.

His London site has been a celeb favourite, despite less than complimentary reviews and astronomical menu prices.

Wayne and Colleen Rooney recently visited, alongside a pair of Huddersfield-based Instagram stars.

Sisters Ellie and Daisy O'Donnell splashed out on the chef's £630 steak – which they said was "something else," after fans accused them of just visiting the famed eatery to snap glam Insta pics.

The girls shared a video of their glam London night out to their 584.4k TikTok followers at the weekend.

Salt Bae himself acted as their own personal waiter sprinkling salt on their £630 steak in his signature style before slicing the giant tomohawk beast.

Ellie and Daisy captioned the video: "Best restaurant," adding: "Actually the food was something else,” with a heart eye emoji.

They blasted back after a follower quizzed: "Only go for the Insta pics and to take pictures of the bill."

And Salt Bae – whose London-based antics and eyewatering bills have seen him rack up a raft of headlines – was in hot water recently after advertising for chefs.

And it seems he hasn't quite managed to keep up appearances at all his outposts, after one worker at Nusr-Et Steakhouse Turkey claimed he had worked there for months and never met the chef, real name Nusret Gökçe.

But he planned to pay them an hourly wage equivalent to the cost of a bowl of MASH on his menu.

The measly wage was advertised despite the fact his London eatery has been ranked as the second-most expensive restaurant in the WORLD.

And despite the extortionate price tag, diners have complained the food served at the "kebab shop-style" joint is "barely edible".
