Salt Bae has taken to social media to show a customer's bill after dining at one of his restaurants, and the final total is an eye-watering amount.

The 39-year-old Turkish restauranteur - whose real name is Nusret Gökçe - is most recognizable for his gold leaf steaks and his unorthodox method of sprinkling salt onto his customer's meals.

Whilst dining at his Nusr-Et Steakhouse restaurant in Abu Dhabi, 14 guests wracked up a bill of 615,065 Dirhams ($170,000), and the owner wasted no time in showing it off.

The customers were charged: 9000 Dirhams ($2450) for two golf leaf-covered Istanbul steaks, 5500 ($1490) for two golden Ottoman steaks, 4500 ($1225) for two beef tenderloins, and 3905 ($1060) for 11 beef fillet steaks.

He also charged: 1200 Dirhams ($326) for five beef carpaccios and 320 ($87) for four flowering onions. Four portions of fries set the customers back a further 180 Dirhams ($49) and 5850 ($1590) for golden baklava.

All of this food needs to be washed down with something, right? Well, the diners spent a staggering 540,500 Dirhams ($147,154) on various bottles of wine.

A single bottle of beer cost 55 Dirhams ($14) whilst a negroni and four virgin mojitos added a further 255 ($69) to the bill.

Fifteen bottles of water (a mixture of still and sparkling) added 675 Dirhams ($183), resulting in a staggering total of 615,065 Dirhams ($170,000).

Many of Salt Bae's followers were enraged by his recent post, which he shared to Instagram with the caption: "Quality never expensive #saltbae #saltlife #salt."

One user commented: "This is lame, that amount of money will help a whole village from dying. This is horrible," and another added "This is very bad. It's bad that you're exposing it. When there is poverty all around😡😡😡😡😡😡😡"

With the Formula 1 Grand Prix taking place in Abu Dhabi this weekend, Salt Bae can expect many more wealthy customers to come through his doors.

It is not yet confirmed who the bill belongs to.
