Salt Bae chefs earn same wage per hour as lavish restaurants mashed potato

Salt Bae's lavish London restaurant Nusr-Et has been hitting headlines recently for its eye-watering menu prices.

However, it seems like staff at the posh Knightsbridge eatery don't get the same deal with their wages.

It has been revealed that Salt Bae – whose real name is Nusret Gökçe – is advertising for an experienced chef de partie to join his team at the restaurant by offering up the 'highly competitive salary' of £12 ($16.35) to £13.50 ($18.39) per hour, plus tips.

Consider the £12 is what the restaurant charges for a portion of mashed potato, it doesn't seem that great to be honest.

The job ad reads: "Amazing opportunity for an experienced Chef De Partie to join Nusret team in the new restaurant in London!

"As a Chef De Partie, you will be working with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in the one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.

"You will play a vital part in a large team and will support the Head Chef during service.

"To the successful candidate Nusr-Et London offers a highly competitive salary and excellent opportunities to develop a global career.

"If you're a Chef de Partie looking to work the famous steakhouse, send your CV, we want to hear from you!"

With all the hype around Nusr-Et recently, you'd think it wouldn't struggle to find staff.

However, an Evening Standard reporter claimed that nobody turned up when the restaurant recently held three open recruitment days.

The reporter wrote: "I am surprised to see no queues or crowds – in fact, there's not a single person outside eagerly clutching their CV.

"Maybe I've got the wrong day. I ask the doorman who tells me a few people had turned up over the three recruitment days, 'maybe, over 20,' he says in a slightly higher tone that makes me think he's exaggerating."

Let's hope that the staff at least get a discount on meals.

Although, they'd still have to pair a fair whack, whatever the discount, with the restaurants sky-high prices.

This includes £850 for a gold-coated steak and £100 for a burger.

Furious diners who have visited the pricey restaurant recently slammed the "overhyped" eatery though and said it's £850 steak is "like a kebab shop".
