The ad didn't had slur or any words in it but it had people in a way that literally look racist. I don't feel comfortable now.
You should probably not patronize that restaurant.
If you feel you've been harmed directly, contact a lawyer who handles civil rights cases.

It is not illegal to target a demographic and to do so crudely or offensively. Nor is it a cause of action for discrimination or otherwise when someone does.
You cannot sue every time you're offended. In fact, very rarely can you sue simply because you're offended. Here in america, we let people speak their minds, regardless of the offensiveness to a particular race or group. That's freedom.
If you weren't prevented from eating at this restaurant based on your race and you weren't denied employment, you have no race-based claim.
Best of luck.
