Ever since the owners of Masa upped sticks and chose to open Bento Boss on Whiteladies Road, their old premises at 42-46 Baldwin Street has been empty. Now switching from Japanese to Chinese, a brand new restaurant will be opening soon in the form of Han Dynasty.
The mini-chain already has restaurants in Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester and Manchester, with Bristol their first opening down south. “Authentic Chinese food in contemporary surroundings” is what they promise, with every one of their restaurants apparently featuring its own unique food style.
Exactly what that food style is…well who knows. The “sample menu” section on their website is a little sparse and pictorial only, but it appears that hot pot and BBQ may well feature on the menu – which would make sense with the grilling equipment that Masa already had in place.
There are signs up outside the premises, although the fact that I can’t read any Chinese makes it difficult to know exactly what they say. If anyone can translate and can let me know if they give any more useful information, I’d be most grateful!
