What others have to say about Han Dynasty:
Philadelphia Magazine: 50 Best Restaurants in Philadelphia: 2013
"Han Chiang knows how to get Philly hot and bothered—whether it’s with scorching Szechuan peppercorns or deliciously profane tableside banter. This year, he added another weapon to his arsenal: Katie Loeb’s tiki drinks at the new University City location."
"Can’t-Miss Dish: Dandan noodles. They’re just as good as you’ve heard."
"Mandatory side: Spicy crispy cucumbers."
"If Only: Han Chiang himself could wait on every table, spreading his knack for crafting a meal along with his trademark irreverence."
"Aficionados advise be sure to "grab your water" and "take extra tissues" to cope with the "tongue-numbing", dial-by-number "heat" at Han Chiang's five "affordable" Sichuan destinations, where some fans would "probably trade" their "first-born child" for the "ecstasy-inducing" dan dan noodles; while the contemporary surroundings leave little impression, opinions of the owner range from "amusing to annoying."

"The glaring red of Han Dynasty’s storefront suggests tongue-numbing spice and the place definitely doesn’t disappoint heat-seekers.
Dan dan noodles are a customer favorite. They’re silky and soaked in flavorful pork broth.
Most selections are drenched in chili oil or fried with Sichuan peppercorns. Approach with caution."
