I've been to the Tin Tai quite a few times now and every time has been so enjoyable. The food is always so lovely and doesn't take long coming out of the kitchen. I, myself am a huge Chinese fan and this is right up there with the best. Will be back.

The was one of the best Chinese restaurants I've been to! The food was amazing... Very large portion sizes I couldn't finish my meal! The service was great, the staff were really attentive and helpful. The restaurant was busy (a good sign) and it was clean and decorated nicely. Ignore the negative reviews, this is a really nice place to... More

Now I would treat myself to a Tin Tai everyday if I could afford it , saying that I don't mean it's expensive either. One portion easily feeds two people. It's absolutely amazing food in here and the flavours are on point. The staff are really good and friendly. Love going to the Tin Tai ... I think I'll have... More

Went for family meal 16th October for my grand daughter's birthday. Service was excellent and food was served quickly, very fresh and very tasty. We were there before 7pm and restaurant was very busy, always a good sign.

How this is ranked at #34 for restaurants in Letterkenny I'll never know, considering there's bakeries in front of it!! Since the Tin Tai has been renovated, the place has a new vibe to it. The food has always been very good in it, very reasonable price wise as well and it's the only Chinese I eat at, in Letterkenny.

It had been my first time here in years and we thought the food was lovely. We had a starter and main course both of which were delicious. Had beef in black bean sauce and he had chicken curry and we really enjoyed it. Staff were lovely and really attentive even though they were busy. My only fault was that... More
