The Gordon Ramsay Restaurant Dishes Called Out For Exorbitant Prices

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has made a name for himself by creating delicious dishes and having a big personality. On his show "Hell's Kitchen," he's famous for yelling at contestants as they're scrambling around the kitchen trying to make meals that they hope will appease him. Some of his worst insults are when he asked a participant on the show, "What are you, an idiot sandwich?" and when he prayed before eating a competitor's entree saying, "For what we are about to eat, may the lord truly make us not vomit" (via Delish, Parade). 

Despite Ramsay's frequent tirades, people keep signing up to participate in his shows because his food is world-renowned. According to his website, when he was just 35 years old, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay was awarded three Michelin stars. This eatery still holds this accolade today, making it one of London's longest-running restaurants to do so. Ramsay also owns several other award-winning restaurants, but it will cost you significantly to dine there.

Fish and chips is a classic London dish that features crispy fried fish that's served with french fries and sometimes green peas. The popular entree is usually priced at around £10, (around $12 U.S.) according to Yahoo News. Restaurant-goers were shocked that Gordon Ramsay was charging customers more than triple that price. Insider reported that the television host was offering the classic British meal for $33, plus an additional $9 for fries at The River Restaurant, which is located at the Savoy Hotel in London.

Ramsay posted a picture of his version of the dish on Instagram and his followers made their thoughts known. One commenter wrote, "Dude ... what a rip off !! So much money and no fries." Another added, "way thanks." However, not everyone was turned off by the price tag. A different social media user said "If people are willing to pay the price then more power to him." adding that the dish looked "delicious."

This isn't the first time the celebrity chef has been accused of overcharging patrons, like when he offered a cheeseburger at Gordon Ramsay Burger for the staggering price of $106 (via Insider).
