“nothing special”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

The food is only average.
We told the waiter that the duck dish was quite fatty and he just shrugged.
The service was quick as if they wanted fast turnover of customers.
THe place was crowded and noisy.
As others have noted the parking lot is small but we were able to park on the street.
The bank lot next door says "tow away" but after hours doubt they would.
I think you can make reservations here.

“Great food lousy location”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This place looks bad from the outside and OK from the inside. the food however was very good.
It's in an old rough part of town and they lack parking. We went for lunch and was good and priced well. At dinner you will have a wait.
I would give it a higher review but for lack of parking and location.
Don't sit at the bar it is too high, I am 6ft tall and no place for the knees!!

“Good(not great) food, no ambiance”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

The Yummy House is a popular place where you can dine without a reservation if you come early. Later hours require a reservation which usually must be made at least a few days in advance. The restaurant is very plain. Service is fast. Servers are proficient. The wine and beer list is minimal. The food is quite good but faces the same problems I note in most Chinese food, excessive salt and sauces that are a little heavy. Nonetheless, I would rate the food as very good in terms of flavor and ingredient quality, but I would consider the restaurant average based on poor wine and beer list, very plain surroundings and very fast turnover (though we were not pushed to eat fast after we requested our server to take time between our courses).

“Best chinese in Sarasota”
Reviewed January 14, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a branch of a Tampa restaurant. The food is superb and authentic. There is a large and varied menu. The clams in black bean sauce is wonderful The ambience is not very inspiring, being just plain table and little decoration. Food makes you forget it..

“Superb Chinese food in Sarasota”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Our experience with Chinese food in Sarasota has been marginal. We recently ate at this restaurant twice over winter break. It is fabulous. The décor is nice, the service is excellent, and the food is fabulous. Our family always starts with spring rolls, which were a little small, but quite tasty. The other dishes were outstanding. We had the braised eggplant, beef with broccoli, and lemon chicken. All excellent. Very good value. We can't wait to return to Sarasota and will visit this restaurant.
