A TikToker shared a simple hack to prevent getting charged for unfinished food at an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant.

In response to an establishment that charged customers for leftover food in that situation, TikToker @carelessmorgann asked viewers:

“Have you ever been to an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant, and can’t finish the food, but they’ll charge you?”

In her viral clip, she shared her solution with a visual demonstration–which included stacking small plates to obscure partially eaten food items like sushi and other side dishes.

She also showed what looked like a California roll submerged in a deep bowl of remaining dipping sauce as she poked at it with a chopstick, prompting giggles from her dining companions.

The viral clip–which had 559,000 views as of Friday–prompted TikTokers to share their methods of avoiding the extra charge for leftovers.

The policy of getting charged for leftovers is not an uncommon practice in AYCE restaurants.

Establishments like Hayashi Ya, a Japanese restaurant in New York City, charge patrons as little as 3% for uneaten food at all-you-can-eat buffets.

Kylin Buffet, a Chinese restaurant in the northeast of England, charges customers $32 if they don't finish eating what's on their plate.

It discourages customers from wasting food and encourages them to order only what they are able to eat.

People commented on the policy.

Not everyone was a fan of the hack that encouraged food waste.

Do you think the policy of charging customers for leftovers at AYCE restaurants is fair?
