Visited with family and friends. Luckily one of us was from China and spoke mandarin fluently. Restaurant The hot pot try it, it was an original taste. I suspect previous reviewers have not understood how this works. Essentially you order a base broth and bring it to a simmer on the induction hob... read more

Had I seen the reviews I might not have used the restaurant, so perhaps the negative experiences some have reported are more about attitude and expectation. As soon as we were seated it was clear that the restaurant was targeted at young Chinese. The waiter apologised that the full menu was not in English, but as the dishes were pictured... More

This place is designed for Chinese students living in manchester. If you want black bean or sweet And sour then go elsewhere. The spicy fish and green beans with peppers and pork are Lovely. Great Chinese food with authentic taste. Be adventurous if you dare you won't be dissapointed .

The staff are extremely rude and inefficient. When I complained that the main courses had been served (some of them in tinfoil) and left for 10 minutes without being served the acompanying rice I was told that the restaurant was busy which it was not. 5 minutes later rice arrives but it's cold and the wrong kind. When I told... More

Waiters are very dull and not well-trained. Noisy and dirty environment. Definitely won't go there again!

Quality and service average. A bit over priced at £16.XX per head. Would recommend a la carte menu rather than all-u-can-eat hot pot/BBQ.

They supposedly offer an English service... which is a lie. I couldn't understand the staff and when I needed assistance there was a communication barrier. For £16.99 for barbecue and hotpot it wasn't worth the money considering the choice of food you get. Hygiene in the toilets are awful...piles of water everywhere and no doors are lockable. As far as... More

Service is shoddy, communication is poor and food isn't well labelled. BUT, the food is tasty, varied, different to your usual Chinese offerings and plentiful. Ordering hotpot and grill with a few drinks were £25 each.

I stumbled on the Han Dynasty strolling down Whitworth Street looking for somewhere to eat before a Palace Theatre performance. My rather conventional meal, that is the type most non-Chinese clients would order, was not particularly good, but the restaurant gradually filled with young Chinese who knew what they were doing and were all obviously enjoying the traditional fare, and...
