Han Dynasty -- What to order; what to avoid...?

I really feel like I'm missing something here. Based on all of the great write-ups here on CH, I visited Han Dynasty in Exton about a year ago. I knew, going in, that we should ask for the Chinese menu and avoid all of the "typical" Chinese-American dishes. I thought I was doing everything right, but to say I was totally underwhelmed by the dining experience would be an understatement.

As I said this was about a year ago, and I haven't been back since, but I LOVE Asian food and I'm ready to give Han Dynasty another try. I really don't remember much of what we ordered, except for some huge, bland-tasting, ugly-looking meatballs that tasted as if they were all filler with very little meat. I'm up in Exton quite often, and I drive by Han Dynasty all the time. I need some guidance -- some specifics -- for my next visit there. More specifically, I'd like recommendations for (1) appetizers, (2) a soup, (3) a chicken dish, (4) a shrimp dish, (5) a pork dish, and (6) a noodle dish. Tell me what you love at Han Dynasty. And tell me which dishes should be avoided. What's the secret to getting a great meal there? Maybe we should organize a CH meet-up so I can sample the best of what Han Dynasty has to offer.
