Something to keep in mind is that most of these complaints just boil down to cultural ignorance.  What's acceptable behavior in some of the places these people come from is simply not accepted here; and in the same vein, it's very likely that some of the things we do can cause people of other cultures pain or embarrassment without our knowledge.

For instance, I once worked with a gentleman of European descent, and after a while I noticed that he tensed up whenever I pulled my assault rifle out in my cubicle and cleaned it during the working day.  After finding out he was from a region where firearms are outlawed, I simply punched him in the face, unloaded a magazine out the window while screaming 'MURICA' and then draped a US flag over his unconscious body.  We got along great after that!

There was nothing in the Employee Handbook that said you couldn't crap in your waste basket but everybody acted like it was against the rules.

My solution:

While they're preparing their stinkfest of a dish, walk close by them and let a massive one rip right in front of their plate.

Calmly explain that some other people were complaining about the horrid stench coming from that food there, and you are just doing what you can to help improve the odors in the place.

I love pot stickers. One time I brought some into work for a dinner meeting, sat down behind some unsuspecting coworkers and opened up the Tupperware. The black girl on the couch in front of me JUMPED up and bolted for the door, screaming something about those "damned Asian people" farting in her g'damn face. The Vietnamese girls immediately started shouting in Vietnamese, and me, the token white girl, laughed until I peed myself. I still laugh aloud at the memory of it. Damn, that was funny.

I eat kimchi and tuna fish in the office all the time.  The only time we had a problem was when I threw some out on a Friday afternoon and by Monday the office smelled like Rosie O'Donnell's crack sweat.  I was not very popular that day.

Since I am the only employee, I don't have to worry about such things, as it's actually my own microwave I bought myself, and my own food.  I'd be concerned about bad smells and burned food, because I am also the only business in the building.  Who would be using my oven?

I had a co-worker that more than once brought durian into our cube farm office when she was pregnant.  Yeah, I know it's a traditional nutrient-rich food for pregnant Asian mothers, but NOT COOL.

Oh, and the VP I worked for there wore so much perfume that you could smell her coming about 10 seconds before she got to your desk.

It was almost as if that company was hard of smelling or something.
