We went here for a friend's birthday with a group of 12 people. We ordered multiple family style dishes (their portions are huge) and shared everything. They have great Chicken Lo Mein, Schezwan Chicken and Black pepper beef. We had some vegetarians in the group and they liked their options too. The restaurant was completely full when we were there but the service was still very quick and accommodating of everything our big group needed. The prices are extremely reasonable. I would recommend this place for a 'yummy' and fun dinner out with family or friends.

Yummy house now has two locations. One is a small nondescript north Tampa location in an unattractive strip mall. The second is in a new and larger building built especially to house the Yummy House, but also in an area of nondescript strip malls and tattered businesses. Don't let the lack of atmosphere deter you. I lived in Seattle for a number of years, and I'm not going to say that Yummy House measures up to some of the Chinese restaurants in the Asian district, but I will say that I never ate in Chinese restaurants in the bay area until Yummy House. There salt and pepper dishes are as good as any I've tasted, especially the calamari. Go with a gang of friends. Everyone select something different from the menu and let the fun begin. You won't have a dish that disappoints. Prices are amazingly inexpensive, and if you go to the north Tampa location you can bring in your own beer and wine without a fee. Don't be in a hurry. There might be a line to get in on weekends and if the place is crowded, service will be slow. But bring plenty of beer and wine, enjoy your companions and prepare to be amazed, delighted, and pleasantly full.

Yummy House is the closest thing to Hong Kong food without leaving Tampa. The variety on their menu makes it difficult to make a decision, so get help from your server if you are new to real Chinese food. Their Peking duck is excellent but you need to reserve one early otherwise they may be sold out.Any of their salt and pepper appetizers must be tried but I really like the seafood combo.Their fried rice and fresh vegetables are great and taste even better the next day. Prices are extremely fair but service sometimes can be hit or miss.

After checking around on the internet I found Yummy House.
To our surprise the food was 5 stars and the price was very affordable.
The serving size are large and very comparable to NYC China town quality food.

I'd been told about this being a great Chinese restaurant but was taken aback by the simplicity of the restaurant and the unimpressive location. That was all over as soon as the food came out. WOW! This is hands down the best Chinese food myself or my family have ever eaten, bar none. The salt and pepper calamari is some of the best you can find. Other amazing menu items include the Mongolian beef, orange chicken, and the fried rice.
