Han Chiang has finally moved Han Dynasty's flagship location in Old City up the street into new quarters.  Let's get ready for a fall affair and spice things up!!

Han Dynasty has a tasting menu for $20/$25/$35.  Let's plan to have the $25 tasting menu.  $25+tax will be collected before dinner starts.  Please bring cash.

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."


Google+

"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."


CNN Travel: Top 50 Chinese Restaurants in America

"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."
