No, the Broad Street Run didn't go to Han Dynasty but I'm sure for the people that ran the race like my sister, they had quite the appetite afterwards. A classic in University City is Han Dynasty that brings modern life to Chinese food. I was excited not see a General Tso, Sesame Chicken or Chicken Broccoli dish on the menu. Since we were there during the weekend, street parking on the street was free. Otherwise, they do have metered street parking and a parking deck around the corner. If you're using the parking deck, hold on to that ticket stub! Han Dynasty will validate the ticket for you so you don't have to pay. Walking in, you'll be surrounded by a mix of students in the area and families. You can order out from them, sit at the bar or get a table. If you have a large party, they have long, bench-style tables where you can all sit together. It's classical embellishments with a clean, modern feel. You're greeted by a server who will walk you to your designated area; my sister and I went with a table by the window. While we sipped on some hot green tea, we decided to go with an appetizer and two entrees (family style) to share. My sister recommended the spicy, crunchy cucumbers while we waited for the two entrees to come out: black bean chicken and hot sauce style chicken.Spicy, Crunch Cucumbers | At first glance, it looked like cucumbers in liquid so I didn't think it would be crunch. I was wrong. The sauce with hints of vinegar and soy permeated the outer layer of the cucumber leaving the inside nice and crunchy. It was tasty yet refreshing.Black Bean Chicken | I had never had a sauce based on black beans and it seemed like it would have been too thick. The sauce was light and as a great medium to bring out the other spices without it being overwhelming the chicken. It was sauteed in with some chunky onion and bell pepper pieces. Huge fan!Hot Sauce Style | You have your options of eight different concentrations (Chicken, Pork, Beef, Lamb, Fish, Shrimp, Scallops and Fried Tofu). We went with the sliced pieces of chicken stir fried with cabbage, garlic and celery in a szechuan chili oil-based hot sauce. Although the menu notes it as spicy, the dish was not spicy. The chili oil sauce was nice and thick and paired well with the white, sticky rice they provided us. You can taste the use of garlic however it wasn't overwhelming with the hot chili taste.The staff was friendly checking in with us in a timely manner to see if we needed anything. Additionally, they have restrooms for their customers. Overall, it's currently #1 in my category for my Chinese food category. Highly recommend all of the items mentioned above!
This place is a very nice place to go to if you're hungry and you want to eat some good food. Plus, it doesn't take long for the food to be done, even if you place a large order. The food is so good and I come here almost 2 times every week. Its very cheap and well worth the visit. The atmosphere is friendly and you get treated very well. They also offer good deals like "Spend $20, get a free 2 liter of soda." Its really hard to choose what to spend you $20 on because it is so good and you also get a good amount of food. The portions are excellent.
Best Chinese Takeout in Mt. Airy. When it comes to Chinese food, I am VERY particular because of a horrible experience I had once. It took me years until I decided to give another restaurant a try. Panda Garden is consistently good. The food is fresh and the flavors are what you would expect from Chinese takeout...nothing fancy (which I appreciate). They deliver to certain areas, but I have picked up from them enough times to be able to know that the physical restaurant space is clean and well maintained.
Best chicken wings ever!!! I have visited each of their restaurants in Philadelphia. I was skeptical of visiting this newest location at Broad & St. Luke because I had only eaten at the Baltimore avenue place. While I had chicken wings from the Olney Plaza location they did not taste as good...but they were still tasty. So I was extremely pleased that this newest location is just as good as the original!!!
Pretty clean for a chinese store in the hood.They also got heat in there so thats good when you gotta wait for the food during the winter.So the food is like any other chinese stores but the owner of the store (Sam) is the best chinese cook on this whole street. He will try to make the best food for you. He will ask how would you like them and how did the food taste. A good owner and a good store. 5/5
None of the food that I've eaten from Taste King is actually fresh; it is always reheated after being frozen. Even certain of the lowly chicken, seafood, and burger chains serve fresh (never frozen) food. The only real positive is that Taste King does not recycle food (re-serve uneaten food removed from other customers' plates, a common trick in the Chinese restaurant industry.)
We always order the food from this place and are very well satisfied. They always make good food and deliveries are very much timely.I have ordered from different places just to compare the food, King Wok at Philmont is currently the best in the area.Keep up the good work,Reference for Restaurant: 15112
Great food.. Best Chinese food in northeast.. I personally recommend to all. Ask for Wang he makes the best food according to our own personal choice. great service and great customer service
In comparison to local Chinese Restaurants the best in Service and Cleanliness - Food Ok - Usually helps to give clear instructions whenever dining at a 5star Restaurant in the "Hood"
The costs are very worth it. I think this was well worth it if you like chinese. The food served here is very tasty. Had dinner here with a good friend of mine a couple days ago.
