“As authentic as it gets”
Review of Han Dynasty

Han Dynasty
Ranked #343 of 594 Restaurants in Coventry
Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 18, 2014

We tried out this restaurant whilst in the city centre waiting to go on the second half of the Coventry ghost walk. Having been in China last month, we were very pleasantly surprised at this absolute gem. I agree totally with the previous review so will not repeat what is said. The menu has not been altered to the western palate and is exactly how they are in China. There is no Chinese music playing in the background, no spring rolls and prawn crackers but a few delicacies such as duck tongues, chicken gizzards and tripe are there. Truly Chinese.
The staff were very pleasant and the food was absolutely amazing with fresh ingredients which literally made my mouth water.
Worth a try if you are feeling adventurous.

Readers will note that reviewers mention, quite correctly, that the restaurant is located on priory place opposite the BBC Coventry and Warwickshire studios and close to Nandos. It appears that the development is being expanded into a world food court though at the time of this review several units were empty. The meal experience is very different from conventional Chinese restaurants and more in keeping with the food which I ate in China. I noted that most clientele were of far eastern origin and judging from their youth - mostly students. I believe this underlines the notion that this establishment provides very good food. The only blip is navigating the menu. We stuck to the a la carte menu as it included photographs on menu. We were not brave enough to try the hot pot. If you opt for the latter you are taken to a table with its own hot plate and bubbling pot into which you threw in a selection of meat and vegetables and cooked it to your liking. This is definitely a restaurant for the slightly more adventurous amongst you. The hot pot sounds interesting but I think you would have to go with someone of a far eastern extraction to guide you through the process.

Delicious, different, and well flavored Chinese food. Amazing sauces and well cooked vegetables.

Try the mapo tofu, and stir fried eggplant peppers and potato dish.

For an easy lunch, not a bad choice. Very good selection of food, all hot. At £7.50 a head you can't really complain can you?

A bit short on the ground with staff, and the decor is basic, but what the hell, the food was ok, the cost was cheap, and everyone was happy!

It's one of the more authentic Chinese restaurants in Coventry. I will give it a 3.5 stars tho - some of the dishes are quite saltish, nonetheless close to authentic Chinese cuisine. Location is great too! Just across the central bus station and not too far from the Motor Museum. Will be back again.
