A customer’s receipt from Nusr-Et Steakhouse has gone viral on social media after totalling to a staggering £1,812.40 – with a single steak priced at £630 and just four Red Bulls costing £44.
The eye-watering bill from ‘Salt Bae’s’ newly opened restaurant in London’s Knightsbridge also shows the table of eight customers had a £236.40 service charge added to their spend.
