At least four customers were seriously injured after a flame stunt went horribly wrong at Turkey’s famous restaurant run by celebrity chef ‘Salt Bae’. The eccentric chef, who is known for his stunts with knives and steaks, often surprises customers with food tricks and stunts.
The accident took place at his Nusret Etiler Steakhouse, Istanbul when a bartender poured an unidentified liquid onto a fire, which led to an explosion. The dramatic footage showing the ensuing chaos has gone viral online.
Footage of the incident is all over Instagram and Twitter, which showed restaurant guests seated at the bar just feet away from a ridge. But as the bartender pours something from a white jar, the fire leaps up and sparks chaos.

Greek tourist Alexandros Severıs, who was on his honeymoon, and Ummani tourist Mohammed Khamıs Salim were also injured. All were rushed to Sisli Etfal Hospital for treatment, the newspaper added.
