Gemma Collins shocked by £1,450 bill at Salt Bae's London restaurant
‘I was in utter shock’: Gemma Collins reveals she was charged £1,450 for a STEAK (wrapped in 24-carat gold) at Salt Bae’s London restaurant Nusr-et
Gemma Collins has spoken of her shock at her £1,450 bill for a 24 carat Golden Tomahawk steak at Salt Bae’s London restaurant Nusr-et.
The Diva Forever star, 40, took to Instagram last week to share clips of herself at the Knightsbridge eatery as she enjoyed a night out with boyfriend Rami Hawash, 45.
In a video shared to Gemma’s Instagram, Salt Bae could be seen slicing the meat, which was covered in gold leaf, and sprinkling salt using his signature flamboyant method – by dropping it from his fingertips to his forearm, and then onto the dish.

The cook – whose method of seasoning steak turned him into an internet meme in 2017 – then handed her a piece of the meat on the end of a knife to sample before leaving the table.
Despite looking in great spirits in the clip, Gemma has now spoken of her shock at receiving the mammoth bill at the end of the expensive meal.
She said on The Gemma Collins Podcast: ‘I have to give the ambience of the restaurant, the experience, a 10 out of 10.

‘The bill was another situation, I was in utter shock. But you have to weigh these things up, the press reported that my steak cost £700, if only they knew.
‘I wish it cost £700. It actually cost £1,450.’
Gemma said she felt ‘sick’ the next morning when she remembered how much she had spent at the restaurant.
