The flamboyant Turkish chef – known to his millions of followers as Salt Bay – recently opened his 15th restaurant, Nusser-et, in Knightsbridge, London.

Inside, those with bottomless purses can enjoy a variety of meat dishes – including the £100 Golden Burger – and pair it with a refreshing £9 glass of Coke.
A salad costs £23 and a prawn tempura roll costs £60.
Even small items come with a hefty price tag.
An onion flower costs 18 pounds, a Red Bull costs 11 pounds and a simple corn on the cob costs 10 pounds.
