Three of us tried several dishes to share and were not very impressed. There are many Chinese Rest. to choose from that offer better food.

One doesn't expect much from this nondescript takeout place on a busy Tampa road, but fresh ingredients and true Chinese cooking shine brightly here. We only came once, but the hour-long trek thru rush hour traffic on the say so of a Chinese newspaper was worth it. We had the beef with tofu and the grouper with Chinese greens. The... More

I've been to Yummy House several times and never been disappointed by the food. There's a reason it's got this name! I love the salt and pepper tofu--just be careful when it first comes out because it's freshly cooked and still really hot! The mai fun is excellent. It seems to be Cantonese food at its best. I haven't had... More

Went here with a group of people. Nothing special here. The staff was not friendly at all and seemed bothered that they had to work. Food was all right, but Everyone is our group had stomach issues afterward. We did the specials so we shared all the dishes. The food was mediocre.

The grouper in XO sauce, salt & pepper calamari, Mongolian beef, Kung Pao chicken, duck fried rice, house lo mein ALL DELICIOUS! I've been going to the YH for 8 years and tried most of their menu and I simply cannot eat Chinese food anywhere else. We love the food and the prices. Absolutely excellent!!!

Tried the place last year, and wasn't impressed. But my daughter's family lived in China for 5 years, and wanted to try it. We even brought the toddler and the baby. And I was very pleasantly surprised. Service was friendly and accommodating to the kids. We ordered three dishes, Kung Pao chicken, spicy eggplant, and beef with noodles. Each was... More

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.
