A disgruntled customer has taken to Twitter to express their outrage at the cost of their meal at one of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants.
The customer was dining at Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food restaurant inside Heathrow airport and was shocked when their bill arrived.
They ordered a burger, fries and a coke and the bill came to £30.25, which is roughly $41.
The burger itself was £15.50, but it was a short-rib burger, which includes short-rib beef, cheese, and chimichurri mayo.
The chips added another £5 to the bill, with the coke costing £4.50. With service charge, coverage charge, and the value-added tax, the bill amounted to more or less 30 quid.
Asking on Twitter, the user wrote: “Reciept from Gordon Ramsey plane food outlet, Heathrow, yesterday! …How on earth can they justify these prices”

Of course, £30 is a lot of money for a burger and chips, but as Twitter users pointed out, this was not just any burger and chips…it was Gordon Ramsay’s burger and chips.
Not only this, but it was Ramsay’s burger and chips inside an airport, and we all know that airport prices are naturally going to be obscene.
One user wrote: “It’s @GordonRamsay in an airport. What do you expect?”
Another chimed in saying: “If it was the best burger and chips you had then surely its worth the price.”
“It’s an airport, presumably you knew the prices before you ordered,” another added.
Others on twitter were less invested in the food price, and more intrigued at the fact that this customer was actually travelling. Remember that?

Rage At Ramsay’s Restaurants
This is not the first time Ramsay has been the recipient of rage regarding receipts.
Many customers have recently been complaining about Ramsay’s £19 Full English Breakfast. The dish features two eggs, slices of bacon, one mushroom cap, one slice of tomato, one sausage link, and a small gravy boat of baked beans.
People were angry because the breakfast allegedly omits many items that they would consider a typical component of an English breakfast. Complaints were also made about the portion size…and the fact that it was nearly 20 quid.
On Twitter, an image of the brekkie was slammed by followers, with one saying: “Not full though is it? No beans, no potato products, no bread, no toast. Shut up Rammers.”
Another added: “I can get a better breakfast for £4.50 at the local Garden Centre.”
Ramsay was not concerned by these complaints, however. He said: “I stand by it. I swear by it. And it is one meal that I would ever eat as a last supper, it has to be a full English breakfast with extra baked beans.
“And you know what? If you’re worried about the price, you can’t f—ing afford it.”
