Not a very pleasant experience

Waiters stood staring at us during our meal, the entire time and the food was barely mediocre, the restaurant was empty when we arrived at around 20.30, which says something about it. Would not recommend.

Ate on a Saturday night and although it was busy we didn't wait long for a table and service was good. Menu not very clear on which meals were vegetarian but plenty of bean curd dishes and food was really nice

6 of us had dinner here last night. 2 of us have been up all night with vomiting and diarrhoea. Upon investigation, it turns out Tin Tin has only 1 star food hygiene rating. Something that in hindsight we should have checked before eating there. I have complained to the environmental health officer. Eat here at your peril.

Needed a quick meal before a film. Large soulless room. Quick but functional service. Had the Peking banquet. Nice Peking duck and sweet and sour prawns. Not so great chicken, veg, rice, starters. Expensive beer. £4 for half a tsing tsao. Have had much better Chinese meals so won't be back in a hurry

The food was fantastic, high quality. Staff were lovely. Managed to get a table straight away but we were early for a concert. It was cold there though. I thought it was because it was a really cold night but looking at the other reviews I think it is just a cold place. Soon warmed up when the food came... More

Went on 17th without reservation and as it was a sell out at NIA, the queue was back to the door. All surrounding restaurants turned us away and on entry the staff said it would be 20 mins. Well it was a 45 minute wait and in terms of organising who was next in the queue it was chaos. People... More

10% is automatically added to your bill. I think tipping should be discretionary and also enables business travellers to get accurate VAT receipts before rewarding great service. Service was ok - nothing exceptional - and the food was really good.

We visited this restaurant as we had been before, but the food this time was not as good as when the previous owners ran the restaurant. The service was good, but the restuarant was very cold so your food went cold quick. Some of the lights went out and never came back on again. There is also a 10% service... More

Despite being somewhat empty I can't help but feel this place is somewhat of an overlooked gem. For Chinese food (which can be notoriously pricey), Tin Tin is really not bad price wise. The food itself was delicious, not oily and there was a great selection of it. The staff were quick and friendly, would definitely go again.

Decided to eat out in Brindleyplace but having visited our usual haunts, Bank, Carluccios, Cielo and told there would be nothing available for over an hour, decided to try this Cantonese above a pub opposite Cafe Rouge in Brindleyplace. Quickly shown to a table and saw the large open plan Chinese restaurant was very busy with group bookings (Xmas parties... More
