If you’ve ever wondered what it's like to work at Salt Bae’s London restaurant, wonder no more.

Nusr-Et, based in Knightsbridge, is hiring.

The infamous steak restaurant, run by Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, is looking for a Sushi Chef to work in the kitchen.

It may surprise you to hear that the famous steak restaurant offers anything other than steak, but the Sushi Chef will be responsible for making dishes for the restaurant’s luxury sushi menu.

The advert claims to offer a “competitive salary”, although it goes on to state that the successful candidate will be paid an hourly rate of £14 plus tips, which is the same price as a portion of sautéed broccoli on the restaurant’s menu.

It would take the Sushi Chef at least an hour and a half to earn enough money to afford any of the dishes they would make in the restaurant, with platters of sushi starting from £19 for four pieces.

Advertising the vacancy on, Salt Bae’s advert reads: “We are currently looking for a talented Sushi Chef to join the new opening of Nusr-Et London!

“If you’re enthusiastic to contribute in a fast-paced environment, please apply below!”

Describing their ideal candidate, the restaurant’s advert continues: “You have experience preparing sushi of the finest quality in a high-end, high-volume kitchen.

“Excellent knife and food preparation skills.

“Attention to detail and a passionate personality.

“Able to work creatively in a high-paced atmosphere.

“Innovative, creative and flexible approach to traditional cuisines.”

Nusr-Et’s advert is the latest in a long series of vacancies at the restaurant, after it was reported last month that the restaurant had struggled to hire enough staff.

At a recruiting day in September, Salt Bae himself hosted a hiring day at the restaurant, in the hope that his presence would attract potential waiters, runners, bartenders and many other hires.

However, when approached by the Sun on the day, a member of staff said they had yet to have anyone stop by.

Since opening in September this year, Nusr-Et has become famous for its extravagant menu, where some of the meat is wrapped in gold leaf, and for landing its customers with extortionately large bills.

Salt Bae became an internet sensation in 2017 after pictures of him flamboyantly sprinkling salt on steak went viral.

He has since left London to open his newest restaurant in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, but not before declaring his love for London in a bizarre video where he stated that his English was “like a British”.
