Gordon Ramsay has been slammed for selling a burger for £85 at his Harrods restaurant.
The Gordon Ramsay Burger in central London, is selling a Wagyu burger for the astonishing amount.
The meal, which comes with Parmesan fries, is made up of a Japanese Wagyu Beef patty, truffe Pecorino cheese, mushroom ragu, freshly shaved black truffle, porcini aioli, 12-year balsamic vinegar and watercress.
But one fan has slammed the restaurant saying the burger is ‘no better than a Big Mac’ – which costs just £3.69.
‘Went to Gordon Ramsay Burger in Harrods yesterday and have to say it was a big let down,’ Harry John White, from Guildford said on Twitter.

‘Slow and confused service, no check back and you’d have thought I’d ordered a Big Mac, not an £85 burger.
‘Nowhere near the standard I’ve come to expect from Gordon Ramsay restaurants’.
What’s more, others have also commented on the high cost.
Another added: ‘Hang on a second. An £85 burger?’.
‘Just noticed there’s a TV series called Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted. If Gordon was in the real world he’d work out how to make a burger for less than £85,’ a third said.
Meat for the burger is taken from Harrods’ butchers with other menu items ranging from £22.50 for a veggie burger to £35 for a lamb burger.
Other menu items include £12.50 truffle fries, and £13.50 milkshake.
It’s not the first time the celebrity chef’s exorbitant prices have landed him in hot water.

Gordon was recently criticised for bringing his three Michelin-starred restaurant Down Under for nearly $800 per person.
The ticketed restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, took over Aussie chef Matt Moran’s fine diner Aria in the heart of Sydney from May 8-10 to showcase the ‘very best of Australian seasonal produce’.
However, tickets to the unique experience costed $495 per person, which included a seven-course menu, with an option of premium wine pairing for $295 – bringing the total to $790 each.
A spokesperson from Aria told Daily Mail Australia the staggering price was set because it was the first time the high-end restaurant had ventured internationally and the menu had been personally curated by Ramsay and Moran.
The menu featured signature Restaurant Gordon Ramsay dishes, including shellfish ravioli and a pecan praline dessert
Word of the event quickly spread on social media, with guests slamming the outrageous price.

At first many seemed eager to visit and bring a friend along, only to be turned away after seeing the cost.
‘At almost $500 per person, the food would have to be amazing,’ one woman commented on Facebook.
In September 2020, he was also slammed online for the Sunday lunch at his Savoy Grill , with diners labelling it a ‘child’s portion’ and questioning where the rest of the trimmings were.
Gordon took to his Instagram page to share a snap of the roast, which he serves as part of a two-course £40 set menu.
Gordon was criticised yet again in April when he took over Aussie chef Matt Moran’s fine diner Aria in the heart of Sydney – with tickets costing $495 per person
At the time, he described ‘the sirloin of beef with all the trimmings ‘ as ‘absolutely stunning”
However, several of his followers were left unimpressed by the three baby carrots and roast potatoes offered – with one person asking: ‘Where’s the rest of it?’
Another queried: ‘Is that a child’s portion?’
The meal involved a single slice of beef, three roast potatoes, three carrots, plus broccoli and a Yorkshire pudding.
The restaurant offers a set menu – with two courses costing £40 and three courses costing £45 – with dishes including lobster cocktail, smoked salmon or omelet for starters.
Diners are told online: ‘Our chefs’ insistence on prime local produce and precise culinary technique means guests revel in the delights of roast sirloin of beef, seasonal vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, followed by a classic Savoy dessert – Baked Alaska.
‘Topped off with your choice of a Bloody Mary or fruit cocktail, this two-course experience is a luxurious roast you’ll remember!’
