A Japanese chef was allegedly beaten to death in Germany by two customers unhappy about a fried noodle dish.

Miki Nozawa, 57, died from a brain hemorrhage after the fight on Sunday night, UPI reported Thursday, citing Rudiger Meienburg, the chief public prosecutor on the holiday island of Sylt where the incident happened.

German media reported the customers “didn’t like the dishes” – which included fried noodles with vegetables and beef – and asked for their money back, the Australian Associated Press reported.

Two men aged 50 and 36 are being questioned by police.
