Benihana suing blogger for mediocre restaurant review

This is outrageous. The review is hardly defamatory – in fact, it’s downright mild. The guy simply wasn’t impressed with his meal, nor was his friend, though some of the food was good, he writes. For Benihana to sue, based on this review, is beyond outrageous. Not that I’d ever go to a Benihana’s (I’m no longer 16 and heading to prom), but still, if this is the attitude of the folks running this restaurant, they risk convincing a lot of people to take their business elsewhere.

You can read Benihana’s complaint here, translated into English (from Arabic) by a good samaritan. Seriously not impressed.
