So there is a wide range of Chinese buffets out there. (Well not in Marathon, since this is the only one). Some with good food and a clean interior, others with bad food and bad interior, others still with good food, bad interior, and so on. We would put this one in the "good food, clean interior" category. The staff... More

The retaurant is more a takeway for the locals, but you can also eat here. They are very quick serving the food and it's good classic chinese food.

This place is AWFUL! The selection on the buffet is minimal, not well-identified and smells off. As we walked out of the restaurant, we saw a staff member spraying chemicals onto the cooking pots as they sat on the ground and then hosing them off.

Very good Chinese restaurant for below average prices. We come here every time we travel to Key West (and that is often). Delicious food. Staff is very friendly, but could be a little more slow. We did not come in here to catch the next bus out guys! Starters are originals and home made, mains could use a little more... More

On holiday in Marathon and fancied something different from the other restaurants...the staff could not have been more friendly and constantly topped up your drinks... Food was pleasant but the portions were far too much for one person...worth getting just one between two...but they do supply cartons to take home any leftovers. This was by far the cheapest place we... More

Stopped here for lunch today. Great Chinese buffet. Very flavorful. Wished they would have had a better selection but what they had was very good.

Ok, this joint gets a lot of our $$$$, they have the usuals, they are Chinese, they make great food. Have a nice small buffet for lunch on the cheap. Delivery is quick and polite. The food speaks for its self although the "Dragon meets Phoenix" is very tasty. (Enough to share for 2.)

This little gem is a perfect place for a quick meal, especially if you have had a busy day! I stumbled across this place with one of my friends who lives in Marathon and was pleasantly surprised with the food! We ordered a take out meal, and it was ready in just a few minutes. I loved the egg rolls... More

Quite a drab restaurant, dimly lit and with old fashioned furniture. However, the food was very good and the portions were huge! Although the staff were very friendly, they didn`t speak much English, so ordering the food was challenging!
