Stopped in for some soup & a banh mi. I had read the reviews, but decided to keep an open mind--plus the wonton soup had been recommended. A man, who may've been the owner, was standing at the front & took my order. He was busy making dumplings. I couldn't help but notice that he took my money & gave me change w/the same hands making food--no gloves etc. I ordered a small soup & got a tiny bowl of soup with 3 shu mais--not wontons . Altho it tasted good, it was a very skimpy portion. The banh mi took a stretch to come out--not sure why, it's a sandwich. It too tasted good, but I am spoiled by the banh mis at V-Nam cafe. It was also smaller & skimpier than V-nam.

With so many negative reviews, how is it possible that this place got so many stars? The food is unappetizing; nothing has any taste to it. I can cook better and I am a terrible cook. It is really sad that this place has kids saying the food is good here, I would go a few blocks over to 8th street and find a better place.

Will never patronize this place again. Poor service. Food greasy and flavorless.

When this was Yummy House, it was so great. Now the only edible thing is their Cantonese wonton soup, which is pretty good. Fried rice is okay, but stay away from specialty dishes. Never had any of the Thai stuff, so can't speak for that.

I ordered sesame wantoon and never got it. The pad thai was the only dish I managed to eat a little off but the dumplings were poor. Everything ended up in the bin. Highly recommend you avoid this dump.

We've been frequently Yummy House since it opened over a decade ago. While most of their food was decidedly Americanized Chinese, their kitchen was helmed by a well-known chef from Hong Kong. This meant that some items were amazing and authentic in the Cantonese tradition. We walked over to their location at 3rd Ave. last weekend only to find it closed up with a "We have moved" sign. Apparently the owner has sold the business to some rundown dumpling house on 2nd Ave. Same menu, different location, and different kitchen and wait staff. The food was absolutely horrible. I asked for extra scallions in my hot and sour soup and the waitress brusquely told me that the kitchen did not have scallions. What?! I asked her how a Chinese restaurant can operate without scallions, but she only became even more intolerable. And to top it off, they don't like turning the AC on during a 95 degree night. Between the rude service and poor renditions of classic Yummy House items, I will not be going back ever again. Now I'll have to find a new go-to Chinese restaurant.

Crab rangoon and mongolian beef were not good. Not sure if this place has undergone new management, but the previous dishes were very good.
