Well worth the drive, located close to Interstate 75, 275 and Interstate 4. One of Tampa's hot spots for authentic Chinese food including Dim Sun on weekends. Its hard to single out favorites because its all good, but special mention for their soups, their salt and pepper dishes, and duck is to die for. The friendly staff will make you... More

Claims to be the Best Chinese Restaurant in Tampa since 2006?? Decor is nice, but it went dowhill from there. First, our half of the room had multiple large group tables, a couple of 4-tops, & a couple of 2-tops and only TWO waiters covering. First, our appetizer NEVER arrived. My mediocre Mongolian Beef arrived, then FIFTEEN minutes (by the... More

If you like authentic Cantonese food, this is the place. Here are several dishes you might want to consider: Salt and pepper calamari or chicken wings; snow pea tips (green vegetable) with roasted garlic; XO grouper or beef; hometown rice noodle; honey walnut shrimp; chicken wrap; steamed fish with ginger scallion; beef chow fun (wide rice noodle); wonton soup (with...

Every time we visit our daughter and her husband in Tampa, we religiously go to Yummy House for our Dim Sum fix. In a word, it is excellent. Since moving from Atlanta 7 years ago, we miss the pleasure of Dim Sum we used to enjoy in Chamblee Chinatown. Unfortunately, we do not have any decent Chinese restaurants in our... More

I do NOT eat at any restaurants that have frog legs on their menu which I saw after I ordered. However, it was the BEST chinese food I've ever had in Florida and the portions are BIG. If it wasn't for the frog legs, this would be my place for chinese food.

If you're a fan of dim sum than you have to try Yummy House China Bistro. They only serve it for lunch, and the dumplings and small servings of things like sticky rice wrapped in a lotus leaf are fragrant and flavorful. We also ordered salt and pepper calamari from the regular menu, and that was truly delicious as well.... More

Yummy House is the only place we will go now--large portions of delicious food at fair prices. Hillsborough Ave location is beautiful. Expect a half hour wait at peak times, but it's worth it! Consider take-out if you don't want to wait.

We have been to Yummy House for lunch several times and it is consistently wonderful. Extremely fresh and flavorful, from subtle to very hotly seasoned. Compared to many Chinese restaurants, the prices are are a little higher, but you get what you pay for and portions are large. One drawback is that because it is so good, the wait-time can... More

I will not sit here ant=d talk about the food because I have no doubt that its authentic and fantastic, but unfortunately restaurants are not only about food. Restaurants are also about ambience, hospitality and ESPECIALLY customer service. After waiting 45 min to be seated (again we heard the food was worth it), we received the rudest waitress I have...
