Took some takeout for me (egg foo young) and my husband took a take out of the buffet. We both enjoyed our food and there was a lot. I do think $10 is a lot for a take out Chinese lunch but the food was piping hot and filled to the brim of the container.

Great change of pace and very clean. Food was good. The portions are large. Help was friendly and pricing was a nice surprise for Marathon.

Good lunch buffet and great value, under $20 for 2 with tax. Not a large buffet, but a nice selection of all the usuals you would expect. Really good egg rolls and super attentive waitstaff that never let your water glass go empty.

After doing steak, seafood, cook in and the like, we needed a change. BINGO! Panda House! We stopped in early to get a menu, the on-line menu was WAY out of date. Can't beat the order/pick up time; less than 15 mins. Just enough time to stop @ Publix and pick up booze for Mai Tai's! K, Chow Mein Fong,... More

Panda House is popular in Marathon (the lot usually has plenty of cars at lunch time). The have a cheap buffet. The food is OK, but does not compare to other Chinese restaurants we have been to. I guess my criticism is that it is not very flavorful. If you are in the mood for Chinese or in a hurry,... More

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.
