Han’s Dynasty, or Henry’s as it is known by the locals, is a family style Chinese restaurant and bar serving a variety of Americanized Chinese dishes and all the requisite fancy umbrella drinks typical of this type establishment.

Henry and his staff always greet visitors with a broad smile and hardy welcome. The food is of fine quality, and the portions are large enough for a second meal the next day as rewarmed leftovers.

The numbered dinner specials are extensive enough to make most everyone happy, and if you can’t find a numbered special, the rest of the menu is sure to have an to meet your needs. By the way, Henry does his pork fried rice in toasted oil so the rice comes out dark in color and rich in flavor. I also especially like The General Tao’s Chicken and think it is about as good as I have had.

This is not a high end, fine dining establishment with fancy wait staff and table dressing, it is just an honest to goodness simple, yet great Chinese restaurant offering great food at truly competitive prices.

Friends recommended "Henry's" and we have been there twice, we will return. We especially enjoy the white chicken dishes that are not the usual over-marinated mystery meat but are real cutlets. Very tasty. Friendly fast service. Only 4 tables outside the bar area, the bar itself can get noisy.

The best Chinese food hands down. Chicken is real chicken, not the slimy version of chicken you usually get from other places. The sweet and sour chicken is the best chinese dish I've ever had. The owner knows my usual order just by the sound of my voice. And cheap! My lunch is $5, can't get that anywhere else, and is a very nice size.

This place is really just a bar for the locals. I dropped in to sample the takeout today and spent $19 for the same order I routinely place up the road at Top's. At Top's the same order costs $14 but that $14 buys you roughly twice the amount of food. The Han's eggroll was the size of 2 stacked fig newtons.

I expected Han's "small" order of lo mein to be a pint.(this is standard Chinese sizing).. but it was precisely 8oz !

Now you can't say you weren't warned!
