The man behind the new steak joint is Nusret Gökçe, who became an internet sensation in 2017 when a video of him seasoning steak by theatrically dropping salt from a height went viral.
The Turkish chef now has 15 Nusr-Et Steakhouse around the globe, with the first in the UK opening in London last week.
But a copy of someone’s receipt from the restaurant has been shared thousands of times on Twitter and labelled ‘absolutely ridiculous’.
Prices aren’t listed on the restaurant’s website, but according to the receipt, the Knightsbridge restaurant also charges £9 for a Coca-Cola, £12 for sweetcorn, and £100 for a ‘golden burger’.
Alongside the £630 giant tomahawk steak, other menu items include a battered and fried ‘onion flower’ at £18, and a rack of lamb for £200.
The receipt on Twitter shows a bill that added up to an eye-watering £1,812.40, including a £236.40 service charge.
One person responded: “Honestly this needs to be a wake up call. Absolutely ridiculous to spend this sort of money on a meal it’s just obscene.
“You are clearly being ripped off, it’s there in black and white to see, No cut of beef is worth £630, You were charged £11 for a can of red bull. FFS”
Someone else wrote: “I do not care how good it is if you are spending £630 on a steak and £9 on a coke you do not deserve money”
Another person pointed out: “You could fly to Istanbul, eat the same meal and fly back for less than that”
