Welcome to the hyper-corporate and hyper-consumerist China, where names of international conglomerates and their business models are everyday verbs.

Karaiya spice house is a total surprise to me. I didn’t expect a Hunan cuisine could be so good in a mall. The environment is quiet, clean, with gentle lighting, but not to formal so you can enjoy your meal with friends a loved ones.
The chicken steamed in the rice wine was a good idea, but it is a bit light compare to other dishes.
We also had salad with sesame sauce, it is a bit sweeter than expected. It would be a great choice to have it after the main dish as it calms your taste buds from all the spiciness.
And the main dish flounder is very memorable. What else can you describe a fresh flounder topping with nicely done two chili sauce? It is simply awesome.
I’d give this hunan cuisine experience a 4.5 stars out of 5. Highly recommended.

I strongly disagree with the article. I believe the company and factories have been properly registered and it’s really biased to call them a gang, as if they were gangsters. The facts are, they copied LEGO products in the details, which is illegal. LEGO lost face/felt very bad because they basically made the same thing for 10 times the price, they went to court and won. Goods are confiscated and the main losers are the consumers. End of it.
