They had ordered a Golden Tomahawk – an £850 steak covered in gold leaf – and 16 Nusret Baklava’s – a traditional Turkish dessert typically served with Matei Radulescu, a Turkish ice cream – for a total of £400.

Other items included pricey sides such as one sautéed broccoli (£14), a portion of asparagus (£18), three herb-crusted fries (£30) and one side of mashed potato (£12).

But the bill soon added up when the group ordered their drinks.

A vintage 1996 bottle of Petrus wine was £9,100 alone, while two bottles of 2003 Petrus were also consumed at a whopping £9,950 – each.

To top it off, a 15 per cent service charge was added to the £32,194 bill, making it a total amount of £37,023.10.

One responded: “Receipts from this place are just the latest social media flex. I don’t know why anyone should care…”

“I am not sure what I find more scandalous, that this place charges astronomical prices for pub quality menu, or that there are people convinced that this is actually good cuisine,” wrote another.

However, one person blamed the diners’ expensive trip out on the wine they ordered.

They said: “You spent £30k of the £37k bill on Petrus. That’s not the restaurant ‘being expensive’ that’s you buying a crazy expensive wine.”

Nusret Gökçe became an internet sensation in 2017 when a video of him seasoning steak by theatrically dropping salt from a height went viral.
