Yummy Wonton House is a family owned and operated spot serving a varied menu of homestyle Chinese cuisine. Delivery available from 5pm daily.
Wernt here with a friend for some dimsum lunch. Ordered several dishes and was told that the dimsum was made fresh every day. The dimsum was decent but some of the dishes was exceptionally expensive considering what you get while others were void of taste. Some other ones was delicious but seem small for what you are paying. If I was hard up and did not want to travel outside of Surrey/Delta, then I might consider coming back. But I did not see the value for the dimsum. They also had some lunch specials where you get chinese spare ribs in black bean sauce with rice and a drink that was good value. Overall impression, will wait awhile before I return.
This is quite new, just open two weeks. It is located where the old Regalia restaurant, and more recently Dynasty Buffet, was located.
A wide-open room, quite bright and clean-looking. Bathrooms are reasonable. Minimally decorated, but they have plans!
A co-worker and I went for lunch and were favourably impressed. We both had braised brisket and wonton noodle soup. The broth was excellent, the wontons were shrimp, plentiful and very fresh. Noodles done just right, and the brisket was meltingly-tender. "Yummy", indeed! The lunch menu has wonton soup, noodle soup, lunch specials at $5.25, and some standards. The main menu has a few pages, and features dim sum and congee dishes as well.
As mentioned, they are just getting up and running, but this looks like a VERY promising restaurant in an area where Chinese restaurants are very few and not exceptional.
*** Disclaimer: This is one of the better Chinese restaurants in North Delta/Surrey***
I sincerely wonder if there is a just a curse in the local Surrey/North Delta area which results in not so great Chinese food. I don't really understand why, it just is.
Yummy Wonton started off with good promise, but now there are cracks showing.
1. Don't bother asking for special requests.
I usually ask for less oil, and I have a sneaky suspicion that I end up with more oil in my food... Also, I love ginger and asked for one dish to be cooked with a bit more ginger, it ended up being far too gingery, I think they put in a quarter cup of ginger... it was inedible...
2. Higher prices randomly raised.
Almost all of their prices have increased, however they can't be bothered to print take-out menu's with the higher prices, and it's been months since prices have been raised... So basically purchasing from here, prices could be anything...
3. Sizes are based on the discount?
I've noticed that if I order over the discount amount some dishes will be sized smaller, while on other visits they will come in the larger container. I'm not even sure this is legal.
4. Substitution's now cost lots.
When they opened their set dinner could be any meat, now it's a extra $2 charge per item changed. As there is a range of religion's in the area they started off allowing people to pick their meat but changed this... Bad customer service.
Their servings are pretty large, and most items come in a large container.
The food is cooked pretty well, but it is inconsistent. Also while there is a set size container portion's will oddly enough vary, sometimes it will be packed to the top, other times container's will be emptier. Sometimes there will be lots of meat, other times less...
They use fresh vegetables.
Even with higher prices, because portions are bigger it's fairly reasonable.
Essentially we put up with the quirks because compared to other Chinese restaurants in the area, this place is very good.
Probably Delta's best Chinese restaurant. Large dishes, good service, good price. However the room is just too big. The way the tables are set up reminds me of my school cafeteria. We were a party of 4 orientals and we were given forks, never had that happen before. Napkins are a cost of doing business and giving patrons 1 of those tiny jobs just doesn't work, it reflects badly on the establishment. Checked out the restroom and give it a 4/5. Would I return? Yes!!
Yummy has not failed to make us happy no matter how many times we've been there. Unlike other Chinese restaurants where there is mostly zero service, Yummy is the exact opposite. They are very attentive, you don't need to summon them for simple things like water. Their food is excellent, too. Though I have noticed that the servings of their fried rice has gotten smaller, it is still the same quality. I have brought friends and family here and it has become their favorite resto too!
We were there for lunch and ordered beef brisket rice noodle soup and a few dim sum dishes. It is the
worst that I have ever tasted. Food is to be enjoyed. I found it a torture to eat it, never mind paying $25
for it. You will never get me to go back.
I may have finally found decent Chinese food, I was advised buy friends to try Yummy Won Ton so I did. My self and my Girlfriend ordered two dinners for one with different side dish's and everything was very good.
Now I'm always skeptical with new restaurants because some seem to be good when they open but then slowly start to slide backwards,but so far so good I've tried the delivery.No complaints
I found some of the prices to be high outside the dinners for 1,2 etc.
atmosphere is open lots of TV's if you want to watch a sport.
But foods what it's all about so it's pretty good
I noticed that there was a change in ownership after driving through the parking lot and saw the sign had changed and the big giveaway of a new opening of a chinese restaurant were the flowers on the stands in the entrance. Had to give it a shot. The previous "all you could stomach" was disgusting.
What a surprise. I asked the server to recommend something special with a bit of spice and that I was looking to be impressed. He was excited and up for the challenge. He came back with the menu and pointed out the braised chili fish. Not something that would have caught my eye on the menu but decided what the hell.
I ordered it with steamed rice. I had never tasted fish so fresh and soft. No clue what it was but it was white fish and it was excellent. A little on the spicy side but I asked for it. There was enough to feed a family. I took it home and ate it for a couple of days. Not sure if he was trying to impress me with the portion knowing it was my first visit and wanted me to come back or if this was the normal size but it was huge.
I went back a few weeks later with an open mind. Talked to a guy at the table behind me and asked what he had experienced so far. He recommended the dinner for one which was a sweet and sour pork, chicken chow mein and beef chop suey. It turned out that it wasn't a dinner for one but a dinner for two. The plate was huge and I could only finish about half.
I'm very optimistic that we may finally have a decent chinese restaurant for Surrey/Delta. We'll see. One concern I have which I have seen a number of times before is the size of the place. Its huge and they are obviously hoping for large dining parties. I worry because the overhead must be huge and will bite into their operating cost. They will need to fill those seats to make a good run at it. Kind of wish they were in a smaller sized room.
Give it a try!!
Yummy Wonton, I wanted to like you. I really did. You're only a few minutes drive away from my house. You're always open when I come by. You have a large and diverse menu. But the love just isn't there.
I've been seeing you on-and-off over the last 6 months. I've been to see you on different days, tried different things on the menu, but I always leave wanting more. Your staff are unpredictable - either pestering me constantly or running around ignoring me when I need attention. Your decor is tacky and the giant TV in the corner is distracting. But I could forgive all of that.. it's your food that really broke my heart.
Greasy spring rolls. Lumpy, sticky noodles. Painfully dry roast duck. Chewy, slimy beef. Half the time, you can't even give me what I order, you just send your staff back to tell me you don't have it.
I wanted to give you one last try, so I came by today to see if we could work things out. So I showed up and you gave me soup broth that tasted like it had been strained through a cardboard box and a side of cooked lettuce. Cooked lettuce! I had no idea you could be so heartless.
It's over, Yummy Wonton.. It's over and I'm not coming back.
I have been a fan of Yummy Wonton House for a while and usually go on Sunday mornings (when it's dead). When the resturant is just opening and not busy, the service is good and the food is excellent (It's hard to find real Chinese food in Surrey).
On the other hand, I went to the restaurant for the first time during its peak hours and found the restaurant to be the complete opposite. The restaurant was in shambles because it was understaffed and the host kept seating more and more people and taking more and more pick-up orders. The restaurant was not completely full, but the small rush of customers was still too much for the two waitresses and the one bus boy to handle.
We waited a couple of minutes before we were seated and once we were seated it took they a while to get to us to take our order. Once we ordered, we got our soup relatively quickly (off to an okay start)...then we waited for over half an hour in anticipation for our other two dishes. Finally, I asked the waitress where are food was (I say "finally" because the waitresses avoided eye-contact with us because they were so flustered and busy). She apologized and checked with the kitched to see where our food was.
When she came out, she brought food with her...but for another table. I had to try to catch eye-contact with her again to ask if our food prep had even been started. After a long laboured pause...she said that it hadn't been started (after 40 minutes of waiting). At that point we decided to cancel the order and ask for the bill. We were given apologies from the host (of which most of the time seemed to do very little as the waitresses rushed about) and were told we didn't have to pay for our $7 bill (for the soup that we split between 3 people).
Even though our bill was covered in the end, it was embarassing to bring my friends to a place that was not well managed/managed at all during dinner time. I had been raving about how great the place was before that night, now I don't know if the quality of food is worth it. I also noticed that the table next to us were getting impatient because their waitress disappeared when they wanted to order.
I have a suggestion for the owners of YW: Next time you're understaffed, stop taking orders by phone an stop seating new customers you cannot accomodate with good service.
T.I.P.S. -To Insure Prompt Service
We decided to try take-out from this restaurant for a dinner of 15+ people:
Food - absolutely delicious and very well prepared. The food was not at all greasy! Presentation was also great, considering it was take-out.
Service - the staff all had great smiles and were willing to accommodate any requests! We were well attended to, even when we were waiting for our orders!
Ambiance - n/a
All in all, very highly recommended! Definitely the best Chinese restaurant in the North Delta/Surrey area!
Oct 13 2007 new business in old location. Excellent food, hot, crisp, fresh and NO grease. Our dish of fried rice was outstanding and the sweet and sour is very tender. Shrimp won ton soup a delight.
very good food. I'll buy again every time I order in. no need for 200 letters thats enough to tell the trueth.................................................................................................................................................
i usually HATE Chinese food of any kind...I find it dull, boring and frankly it all tastes the same. So anyways my fiancee has been bugging me to go out for some Chinese as we almost never do because I hate it.
So I read some reviews here and decided that if we're to go out we might as well find something thats supposed to be good...
And it WAS, the staff were on top of it we were promptly seated and drink orders were taken. They were very attentive almost obtrusive ALMOST, they were very polite and respectful.
We started with the usual spring rolls, They were delivered very promptly. First thing I noticed was that they were HUGE, usually you get the same old small tasteless deep-fried crap rolls, not these, the ingredients were fresh and even still crisp. More flavour than even my Asian cuisine indulging bride to be was used to.
The main course was a combo of a mushroom and chicken chow mien with soft noodle. Real shitake mushrooms and lots of fresh chicken. Top quality. Also was a plate of good-ole sweet n sour pork. Again, best I either one of us had. Fresh peppers and onions in the sauce. Very very tasty. We rounded it out with some BBQ pork fried rice. It was a more "traditional" plate with lots of BBQ pork, peas and egg. Again, best we have ever had. Also have to mention was that the portions were enormous. We had our lunch with enough left over for two more meals for the both of us. This is unusual as I can eat quite a bit at any setting.
The dishes each had a unique flavour, combined with good staff and reasonable prices made a convert out of me. Now I actually look forward to having some of the more exotic items on their expansive menu.
I hope that this place stays open, for if it closes I would have to revert to excluding Chinese cuisine from my favored treats. This is something that I would hate to do.

I have eaten alot of Chinese food in my life and Yummy Wonton is not a place I will ever try again.
I love egg foo yung and have not been able to find a place that can serve a decent dish of this since Ho In in China town closed 25 or so years ago.Yummy's was flavourless and was mostly bean sprouts. The chow mein tasted the same as the egg foo young. The beef tomato rice had no flavour either. The dry garlic pork had no taste - not even of garlic. The almond chicken was abit pink and rather greasy - but again - no flavour. It was a huge disappointment!
