    The secret to Han Dynasty’s success in Old City has always been Chiang’s canny blend of full-bore spicing (true Sichuan style) and ingredients that (perhaps less authentically) are entirely familiar Read more

    Pretty much everything is good, you really can't go wrong. Dan dan noodles are the best. Mung bean noodle cold dish, dry cooked chicken, and the fish cooked in chili oil are a few of my favorites.

    Friendly staff, nifty bar and clean bathrooms. Try the spicy, crunch cucumbers and the black bean chicken! Street parking or parking deck around the corner (they validate!).

    Their unique take on Dan Dan noodles involves an amazing blend of spiciness and richness from peanut sauce. Not authentic, but absolutely delicious.

    The cold sesame noodles are all sorts of delicious. Had a few other dishes off the lunch menu but I will certainly come back for the noodles.

    Ask for BOREUM as your waitress. Hands down the BEST service I've had in years. Knowledgeable, funny, and full of great recommendations and anecdotes. Will be back for her service as much as the food!

    Hot sauce fish is their best dish on the menu if you like seafood - our waitress told us to get that instead of another dish we selected, and she was right! Dan Dan noodle appetizer is great too!

    Dry fry pork for something a little crispy and with a kick. Great for dinner but also has a lunch menu with smaller portions of their regular dishes.

    FANTASTIC service. Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. The waitress gave her honest opinion when we ordered and had great recommendation. Famous for spicy food but can make it less spicy for you

    Two things to order: 1. Dan dan noodles (pork on the side if you're veg like me), and 2. spicy cucumber. That's all you need!

    You can't go wrong. Best Chinese food in the city, and reasonable prices. Definitely get a few dishes to share.

    Their small cold and hot plates are the way to go. Scallion pancakes, pork belly, chili wontons!

    The Dan Dan Noodles are the best and so is the Garlic Style Chicken. The pan fried dumplings are not so good.

    Gotta get them crispy cucumbers in chili oil! (They're just really crunchy, not like fried to a crisp or anything gross like that.)

    You can choose your level of spice for each option if the one suggested on the menu is too hot for your taste!
