My group ate at Han Dynasty, University City location on a Saturday night. The atmosphere is fun and cool: the bar seemed popular. We were seated quickly (we had a reservation), and although the restaurant was crowded, the noise level wasn't unbearable at 8 on a Saturday.
We started with the crispy cucumber appetizer, very delicious and perfect to share. I got the tofu in pickled vegetable sauce at a heat level of 5. It was a huge portion, but really delicious and complex. I didn't find the heat to be a problem, but several members of my party had trouble with the heat. The dan dan noodles(served with minced pork) and mung bean noodles were also delicious. Others ordered chicken in the garlic sauce and tofu in hot sauce.
The waiter Anthony helped us order: the sauces don't always list all the protein options, and the kitchen is really willing to accomodate.
We did order a side of pea leaves and garlic to share, which never came. It was taken off our bill, though.
Definitely worth a visit, but if you have problems with heat, proceed with caution and talk to the waiter.
