“When you get out of your car, believe your nose.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

I like going to a Chinese buffet every so often. For that reason, I've gone there 5 or 6 times over many years, always hoping they've improved. They never have. I always swear I'll never go back. Maybe I'll try again in a year or two or three. Maybe not.

“Will not be going back.”
Reviewed June 14, 2012 via mobile

This used to be the best Chinese restaurant around here, more specifically in Marathon.  I am sad to say that this is no longer the case since the restaurant the last time I visited seems to be a little run down and smelly.  That smell is what prompted me to write this review.  I ordered to go and when I went to pick up my order I notice a really foul odor as you enter the restaurant, it small like human urine and in the heat of the keys you can imagine the stench.  
The food I ordered was not good and it does not reflect the description in the menu. One of the Items I ordered was the Mongolian Beef that is supposed to be prepared with scallions; mine was prepared with like 2 pounds of onions and maybe 1 oz of beef.  

In conclusion I am disappointed with this restaurant.

“A regular stop for visiting boaters”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

If you enjoy an inexpensive Chinese buffet lunch with super-fresh food in a clean and friendly atmosphere, look no further. Panda House also delivers. I am particularly fond of the way they do tofu and veggies.

“Not what i expected it to be!”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

I was soo excited to finally eat chinese food after months of seafood and grilling out. i was craving crab ragoons and egg rolls and much more... but no where near did they have the things i hoped for. its a single bar buffet. verrry tiny. about 12 things to pick from so not much of a variety. wouldnt recommend it because its not worth it!

“Very good food - very quick!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

Excellent Chinese food at very reasonable prices! We couldn't believe how quickly we were served; yet it tasted fresh and delicious. A definite return is in order!
