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!
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!!!
Horrible dirty inside of the store. I saw the woman drop a egg roll and put it back in the fryer and seen me look at her like WTF. It's disgusting and I will never order from them again and the woman is very nasty and ignorant to people using her language talking about the customers who are paying the bills and paying them at that. I advise you never to eat anything from here again it is so unsanitary I seen it with my own eyes and there was nice running back and forth between the soda machine... so just imagine how much more they run into or on..probably eating from the food and then serving it to the neighborhood.. stay away from this store I have warned you!!! That old woman needs to be fired and they need L&I to visit the store..
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 drive was rude he got upset cause i asked for my change n told me not to order from them no more after tasting the food i wouldn't have anyway n he called my ☎ n forgot to hang up n it was recoding the whole time lol
Absolutely the worst Chinese buffet I've ever been to. Meats were questionable and the service was garbage. I don't know what was in the won ton, but it wasn't pork. I recommend going across the street.
Have ordered from this restaurant for years. The past few times, food was terrible, greasy, not cooked right etc. I called and e-mailed. They said they did not get my two e-mails. When I called, the guy was not interested in the situation and said he would call me back. He won't. I will not order from them again. They have no customer loyalty at all.
Panda serves horrible, spoiled, rancid, leftover food. Read other reviews elsewhere if you doubt this fact.
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.)
