Activists have been ejected from an upmarket steakhouse in central London after launching a sit-in protest.

Eight people targeted Nusr-Et in Knightsbridge, made famous by Salt Bae.

The Turkish chef went viral for his extravagant method of decorating steaks with salt.

Salt Bae – real name Nusret Gökçe – has since found success in several restaurants around the world, including Nusr-Et in London.

It’s garnered attention for its pricey items on the menu, including a “golden tomahawk” steak covered in 24-karat gold leaf

The group Animal Rebellion, an offshoot of Extinction Rebellion, sent a group to the steakhouse for a sit-in protest tonight.

A video posted by the campaign group shows a member of the group being carried onto the site.

Loud noise is heard in the steakhouse as the staff happily bid the activist goodbye.

Student Ben Thomas, 20, said: “Restaurants like this are a symbol of a broken system.

“While two million people in the UK currently rely on food banks, influencer chefs are selling gilded steaks for more than £1,000.

“Steaks and other red meats, which we know have the greatest environmental impact.”

The Metropolitan Police were at the scene but confirmed that the protesters had already left the restaurant.

Following the stunt, Animal Rebellion tweeted: “Animal Rebellion supporters being dragged out by security guards @nusr_et ‘s restaurant in London!

“The restaurant is famous for its steaks – products of environmental degradation and the exploitation of workers and animals. This is not a sustainable food system.”

They completed the post with the hashtag #PlantBasedFuture.

Tonight’s protest comes weeks after a similar stunt at Gordon Ramsay’s three-star Michelin restaurant in Chelsea.
