Sue-shi?! Man Files Lawsuit Against All-You-Can-Eat Restaurant

STUDIO CITY (CBS) — A Ca-Shi, a sushi restaurant in Studio City, offers a $28 all-you-can-eat special.

But one man thinks he got a raw deal when he just tried to eat the fish and not the rice that accompanied his sushi meal.

David Martin is a Type 2 diabetic and has to watch his carb intake.

The deal is for all-you-can-eat sushi…not sashimi, which is just the fish.

He believes the restaurant wanted him to fill up on rice. He left the rice on his plate and says the restaurant owner, Jay Oh, offered to instead prepare two orders of sashimi ($25).

Martin has filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court seeking $4,000 in damage for “humiliation, embarrassment and mental anguish.”

For the restaurant’s part, they say rice has to be part of the deal. Oh told reporters, “if you only eat the fish, I would go broke.”

A hearing in the case is expected next week.
