Salt Bae branded 'super disrespectful' for way he served customer who paid $600 for steak

Celebrity Dish: FIFA in hot water over Salt Bae's appearance on-field after …

Famed Turkish meat-slinger Salt Bae (real name Nusret Gökçe) has not only been called out for his World Cup antics, but for his "super disrespectful" mannerisms for how he served a $600 steak.

The customer took to TikTok to review the butcher's restaurant in Doha, Qatar. And unfortunately, they were not pleased as they gave the restaurant a poor rating of 1.7 out of 10.

In the video, which was shared by Ehtisham Aziz, Salt Bae could be seen approaching the table to cut the steak - for an extra $600.

"He made us pay $600 to come cut the steak at our table," the video's onscreen caption read before Aziz ranked the experience a -20 out of 10.

Aziz said Salt Bae was talking to someone on his AirPods while at the table, which was not appreciated.

"Super disrespectful (-100000/10)," they added.

It seemed Salt Bae briefly redeemed himself and the restaurant by making his classic gesture of sprinkling the salt, which made him a viral sensation to begin with.

"Pretty cool Salt Bae meme moment irl 10/10," Aziz wrote as the chef fed his brother a piece of the steak that was hanging from the knife.

Still, good things came to an end - with Salt Bae apparently throwing Aziz's "cousin's ball away" when they asked to get a "signature."

The Baklava also didn't make the experience any better, which was described by Aziz as not looking good, ranking the appearance a -5 out of 10.

Towards the end of the clip, Aziz appeared to be having a chat with Salt Bae as the onscreen text read: "I would not recommend. Waste of money and extremely rude staff."

"Son, you've been warned about Salt Bae. Come on," another added.

A third joked: "Haha,' he fed my brother his meat.' Hope not Salt Bae's."

Someone else added: "I never understood the hype about this guy or what he does."
