Delicious freshly made Cantonese style Chinese food. Try the Calamari salt and pepper appetizer, fried but addicting. The Hot and Sour soup is amazing with fresh bay scallops and shrimps both added at the last moment to cook perfectly. Every entree we had is great including their Cheese tea. Their Dim Sum is fabulous on Sunday mornings.

3 of us went for a late lunch, probably around 1 pm. We specifically went for dim sum and were not disappointed! We got about 7 different items including shrimp and pork, tamarind ball. Everything tasted fresh but I have to brag on the hot and sour seafood soup....loaded with shrimp and scallops, huge bowl (enough for the three of us to get plenty) and a nice kick, too. We also got chicken feet (my first time trying) There were a few vegetarian options. All in all everything we ordered was prepared nicely, brought to us in a timely manner. A great chinese Dim sum adventure in Tampa! My first time...my daughter and son-in-law go regularly and have not been disappointed.

My first visit at the South Tampa Yummy house location and it definitely delivered in the usual Yummy House tradition. We were a party of 12 and all people in the party were very pleased with their entrees (for a party of 12 that's exceptional). Their peppered calamari is to die for and it is always prepared perfectly. Nobody left disappointed.

For a party of 12 I'd say the service was pretty quick.

Reasonable prices, vast menu selection and good service is what Yummy House is about.

The food here is consistently fresh, unpretentious and fantastically flavored. Well-balanced between the bold and the subtle, this is typical Hong Kong-style cuisine.

So, the cooking was good, the service was decent enough albeit rough around the edges even for a Chinese jiu lou (酒楼); however, their tableware was far less impressive, meaning, we encountered a plate with a broken and jagged edge on the underside; unseen, it cut my girlfriend's finger, deep enough to cause profuse bleeding for the majority of the meal, leaving a visible gash to this day. The restaurant was ill-prepared to deal with this minor incident. Their remedy? A few band aids and two pieces of free cakes. If we were a bunch of SOBs, we would have gone to a lawyer.

YMMV.

Here we are on a Friday night around 4pm with no reservations. We decided to go for Chinese food. Ended up with 13 people so I called and they had a 630PM reservation. We all showed up at 6:30 and they sat us right away. Our server Josh came over and we began to order. Before we New it the food was coming out. The servings are like family style so it's easy to share. Everything was freshly made and the flavors were great! Josh didn't disappoint and kept coming to our table. No glasses emptied. Will come back here again.
