Mr Han's Restaurant & Night


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact


A Royal Salute w/ Separate Compartments, Each Containing Individual Ingredients w/ Its Own Taste-a Magnificent Appetizer to Precede the Regal Feast That Awaits You.
Special Soup Du Maison
At least for two, plenty for four) a spectacular overture orchestrated w/ the delights of the sea-lobster, jumbo shrimp, back fin crab meat, plump scallops, & the rarest of the shark's fin obbligato. This oriental delight is a precious chicken broth fit for an emperor, & all these ingredients are floated w/ slivers of beast of chicken. The soup reaches its crescendo as crisp fried rice is suspended within the ambrosia.
Phoenix & Dragon Soup
In china, the restaurant names the chicken as phoenix & the shrimp as dragon, so we've selected white meat of the chicken & the shrimp to make this delightful soup.
Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup
Are you tired of your everyday bland soup entrees? Declare your independence w/ a tender chicken broth packed w/ selected white meat from the virgin breast of the great american chicken & blended w/ prime corn, creamed style for your taste buds.
Prime Steak, Chinese Style
Prime new york sirloin, cooked as you like it & served w/ a dark & delightful soy-based sauce. Some say that this dish is just perfect, others claim it is a religious experience, but most customers just say, "bring on the steak. " No chinese restaurant has ever had anything like it. Try it, & you'll see what we mean.
House Chicken
Bite-size cuts of spicy chicken sautéed con amore, topped w/ a fabulous sauce based on soy, from a recipe carefully guarded since the 17th century & handed down from father to son.
Silver Dollar Chicken
Shredded chicken w/ special chinese-browned scallops & snow peas. Secret ingredients handed down from seventh son of a seventh son of the same mandarin emperor.
Shredded Chicken Buried w/ Snow Peas
What a delightful marriage this is, in which the most tender of the chicken weds w/ the texture & flavor of snow peas grown on the sunny side of the blue ridge mountains.
Weeping Willow Chicken
The size of the chicken is the same size as the leaves of the weeping willow cooked w/ hunan sauce. Tender, spicy, & lovely.
Peking Duck
The original crispy duck, peking style, served w/ chinese pancakes, scallions, & a magnificent plum sauce. Henry the "k's" favorite dish.
House Duck
Prepared as‏ the peking duck, but cooked golden brown by the chef w/ his exotic recipe. Delicious!
Shrimp w/ Chinese Vegetables
Spectacular jumbo tender shrimp w/ special chinese straw mushrooms on a bed of fresh bamboo shoots, together w/ a light & delicate sauce.
Chili Shrimps
A szechuan style delight w/ the largest of the jumbo shrimps cooked w/ ginger, sesame seed oil, garlic, & love.
Hot Special Shrimp
Special preparation‏ - first deveined & deep-fried, this exotic recipe is a combination of shrimp, garlic, ginger, & chili sauce.
Chinese Toffee Apples or Bananas
Small chunks of crisp apples or bananas are tossed in toffee over a fast, wide flame in a shallow rounded pan for a brief minute. Then they are rushed to your table & immersed in a dish of ice-cold water to harden & crystallize the toffee coating. Eat them at once so that the apples or bananas inside the cool coating will still be hot.

Mr. Han's is sort of the epitome of how Chinese restaurants used to be. It has an upscale feeling with great service and incredible food. The eggdrop soup with corn is incredible as was the Peking Duck, salt and pepper shrimp, and the spicy chicken.

So Mr Han is a very weird place. It’s out of the way and very unassuming. It’s old fashioned on the inside and may have used to be really cool. We have only ever seen one waitress there so the service is a bit slow....More
