A woman who was employed to have sushi served off her body at a restaurant in northern China hit one of its customers after she accused him of molesting her, according to a newspaper report.

The incident happened as the woman was working at the eatery in Taiyuan in Shanxi province, the China Youth Daily reported.

Video posted online last Friday shows the woman lying on a table in a top and shorts, with sushi displayed on her body.

The woman accused a customer of doing “unspeakable” things to her when taking sushi from her body with his chopsticks. She then argued with him and struck out.

The woman at first thought his actions were unintentional, but later decided he was taking advantage of her, the report said.

The practice of displaying sushi on a woman’s body originates in Japan where it is called nyotaimori.
