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

Been here several times, food and service is consistently great. Plenty of options on the menu to satisfy any palate. Ask your waiter for the number of servings per order so you don't walk out with tons of leftovers. Take out is just as good too.

The stripmall storefront hides deliciously YUMMY food inside. Yes, I said'yummy'. As I ate my lunch, I found myself repeating the name of the restaurant over and over. I highly recommend the Salt and Pepper Tofu appetizer(not black pepper, mildly spicy red pepper).

This is our favorite go-to restaurant. The food is superb, the service excellent. We usually order Garlic Chicken in Wine, the House Fried Rice, Wanton Soup and Spring Rolls. It is family style, so these choices feed two people with enough to take home. Parking is a problem, however, because this place is so very popular. But if you're in... More

We had recently visited the Yummy House on Hillsborough, which was excellent, but we hadn't been to the original Yummy House on Waters in a while. It wasn't crowded at all, so we got excellent service. We ordered the 3 X 22 lunch special, which is a choice of three dishes from an extensive menu, each dish containing two generous... More

Was just featured on dirty dining. Had over 130 violations including dead rats and rat feces in multiple areas of the kitchen as well as not keeping food at regulated temperatures. I used to own a restaurant and 130 is A LOT of violations. I used to be a loyal Yummy House customer as the food was fabulous but their... More

The waitress has attitude, very bad service, with out even taking complete order started saying white rice costs extra $1, and showed all restless and bad attitude, she ruined our evening. Never saw a Chinese place charging for white rice with entry with dinner. Stay away, food or place not worth. This place is all set to go further down... More
