A hateful suspect mocked and attacked three Asian men outside a Brooklyn seafood restaurant this week, cops said. 

The three victims, 51, 56 and 57, were speaking to each other in Cantonese in front of Golden City Seafood on 20th Avenue in Bensonhurst around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man mocked the way they spoke as he walked past them, police said. 

When the 56-year-old victim confronted him, the man punched him in the face, police said. 

He then brandished a knife and sprayed all three victims in the face with an unknown substance, cops said. 

The assailant fled on foot, heading south on 20th Avenue. 

EMS brought the trio to Maimonides Medical Center with minor injuries. 

Police are still looking for the bearded suspect, who appears to be between 25 and 35 years old, 220 to 225 pounds, last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater, dark pants and black sandals.
