Jim is correct! You cannot say "je suis fini" in this context as it means "I am done for / I am ruined".
J'ai fini = I am finished
Je suis fini = I am done for

I hope this is helpful.
Bonne journée !
When expressing a personal status, it is prudent to be careful about using être.
In French, you could unwittingly give a wrong impression.
In English, it is perfectly acceptable and well understood when expressing comments like "I am thirsty", "I am hot or cold" or "I am finished" after a meal.
But it is important to use only avoir in these situations, in French.
être expresses a "state of being". Imagine unwittingly stating that "you are hot" or "you are cold"
or "you are finished"? (Think about what this could mean!)
So back to your question -- No! "Je suis fini" is not correct, you need to use "J'ai fini" for the reasons explained above.
Hope this helps.
je suis a la restraunt et finis m'repa
Well done for writing in French!
