As part of its recruitment drive, the celebrity hotspot is currently hiring line cooks for £12 to £13 an hour “plus tips”.
The job advertisement on Caterer.com reads: “As a Chef De Partie, you will be working with some of the finest ingredients from the UK and abroad in one of the most famous steakhouses in the world.”
It says applicants will play a “vital” role in supporting the Head Chef and boasts of a “highly competitive salary and excellent opportunities to develop a global career.”
The news has left a sour taste in the mouths of some people who criticised Instagram-star Nusret Gökçe on Twitter.
One wrote: “Absolutely disgraceful and disgusting, he charges £800 for a steak yet offers a £12 an hour wages, do some calculations, either they work a mad amount of hours or it isn’t enough to live in London.”
Others pointed out that the hourly wage is the same as the price of mashed potato on his menu.
The Evening Standard has approached the restaurant for comment.
The reality star, 40, said she was mortified by the mammoth bill.
She told The Gemma Collins Podcast: “I have to give the ambience of the restaurant, the experience, a 10 out of 10.
“The bill was another situation. I was in utter shock. But you have to weigh these things up, the press reported that my steak cost £700 , if only they knew.
I wish it cost £700. It actually cost £1,450.”
Collins said she felt “sick” the next morning when she remembered how much she had spent at the restaurant.
