This is the second time we visited this restaurant and the service was even worse then the first time. The food was good when it finally showed up however when the waiter starts giving you excuses as to why the food was late you know there is a problem. The service definitely ruined the meal even though the food was... More

I brought two of my biggest Chinese food critics with me and they were impressed. We got the pick 3 for $22 - salt & pepper calamari, eight treasures pot, and grouper in XO sauce. We also ordered egg rolls (factory made spring rolls - skip these) and the veggie fried rice. Mom was afraid the fried rice would be... More

Stopped in just as they opened and got the pick three for $22. Ordered honey chicken, shrimp fried rice, and szechuan (probably spelled wrong) chicken. Glad we only ordered one set, the portions were huge! We weren't able to finish any of them, even though I tried my hardest much to my wife's discouragement, and took two boxes home. Definitely...

If you want great tasting and authentic Chinese Food, this is the place. They offer a long list of dishes and so far all the I've tasted are the best. It's a real treat to the tastebuds and their prices are real reasonable.

Reasonably priced, fresh Chinese cuisine; there’s a reason this place is one of the more highly rated restaurants in Tampa. It’s a bit off the beaten track, and we stumbled upon it by chance when we were in the area. A Tampa-based friend of ours later commented to us that among locals, it’s highly popular. We can see why, and... More

You want Chinese take out...take care. I called in an order of crispy egg rolls and chicken with mixed vegetables. The online menu doesn't mention it, but RICE IS ALA CARTE. Fortunately the cashier asked me if I wanted any...$1 for a small container. The man who took my order didn't mention it, and apparently didn't hear too well, because... More

We're locals and we drive 45 minutes to eat here several times a month, bringing friends who've never been here, and they always come back. It's an unassuming place, nothing fancy, but the food is exceptional; the honey walnut shrimp is to die for. And you can bring in your own wine. Just bring a corkscrew - and wine glasses,... More

Since just me and my husband so we only ordered 2 dishes and both are excellent. Their salt pepper pork chops must be number #1 . But u have to pay for rice , which is $1/ person...unlike other chinese places rice come with orders. The place is very clean and nice. Definitely will be back next time in town.

Moved from Canada where there is big Chinatown area with real authentic Chinese food and never thought would see the day where there would actually be authentic Chinese food in Florida and found that finally at Yummy House. Thank you - missed Cantonese style cooking since moving from Canada back in the late '80's. Not fanciest looking place but very... More
