Very good food for a little place

They make the best shrimp with lobster sauce that I have ever had. Portions are large and other food was delicious and well prepared.

We had shrimp with broccoli and shrimp with mixed vegetables and brown rice- well prepared, veggies good and not overdone - 2 dishes are enough for 4 people - bill under $30 --- a real surprise to find a pretty good dinner in the Winn Dixie strip mall area

I know you didn't come to the Keys to eat Chinese food. But should you get a craving I recommend it! The food is always good! The prices are very reasonable and even inexpensive compared to other Florida Keys restaurants. Love the wonton soup, fried rice and shrimp with lobster sauce.

We've eaten here before. The food is fine. They have large portions which is why it's popular with locals. The food is also generally reasonable priced. It's also the only Chinese restaurant between Marathon and Key West. This is a family owned business. In another review I read that someone encountered rude customer service. We encountered nice folks.

Consistent with most of the other YA reviews, had similar experience. Went for lunch...very few guests yet service was very slow. Our Server speaks little to no English (?) Had the chicken in garlic sauce. Very small portion....veggies tasted soggy, perhaps from days before. Friend had sweet n sour chicken which was soggy and tasteless. Much better restaurants in Marathon... More

The food was fine, service was fine, portions were large. I have lived here for 5 years and just visited for the first time. Probably will wait another 5 years to return unless I'm really craving chinese food and don't feel like driving all the way to Key West.

Young Waitress unfortunately did not understand our order, did not bring the items requested (soups and egg rolls as appetizers first) another perhaps a chef lady had to re-verify for the fourth time our order, simple task was very difficult for the waitress. Food arrived in large quantity - big portions. Fried rice had foul smell and moo goo gai... More

Ice tea not to my taste, but hot tea is very good. Large portions so we take home enough leftovers for another full meal.
