If you think you haven’t been confused about anything for a while, head over to Uncle Yu’s Indian Theme Restaurant.

This eatery, located in San Gabriel, California, is apparently serving Taiwanese food through its crew of East Asian-looking girls dressed as “Indians.”

Wait. WHAT?

The Love Life of an Asian Guy, which shared the existence of the restaurant to his over 200,000 followers on Facebook, found it plain racist:
