There aren't many good places to eat Chinese food in Auburn, Maine, but Tin Tin Buffet is one of the best places. I was very surprised to find that the food was fresh and the atmosphere pleasant. The variety was pretty good and had the staples of a good Chinese Buffet. Many of the items were covered in sweet sauces... More

Of the three buffets in the area, this one probably has the largest variety and most consistent food. The fare is typical of Chinese buffets and is typically warm. Good for a night out with a lot of people as the space is huge. They do a good job making sure that there is plenty of food for the number... More

Chinese buffets scare people a lot. They don't know how old the food is, or it someone used a serving spoon from one dish in another. Tin Tin's is busy enough to have current food, and they have very good prices. I enjoy the way they prepare the food (The General tso's chicken is more sweet than spicy) and they... More

My husband and I was eating up in the front of the restaurant near the buffet tables this afternoon and the waitress had brought a stack of napkins and put them on our table. My husband went to get one and the cockroach came... More

I used to frequent the Tin Tin quite regularly. I noticed about 3 or 4 years ago it went downhill--the food and cleanliness. I went again a couple of years ago, and I just can't go there again.

If you love Chinese food this is the place. A wide variety of great Chinese cuisine to choose from and every bite is delicious. Reasonably prices and restaurant is very clean and spacious.
