Oriental Buffet

The food was average and probably won't go back again. There is a large variety of food ranging from American to Oriental.

I visit this restaurant a few times every month. I love the flavors that Chinese food offers, and Tin Tin has the best tasting food. They have a huge buffet with many food and dessert offerings. The food is always fresh and tasty. I have been enjoying this location for many years.

The lighting is beautiful. There is a Coy pond in the entrance with fish and turtles. The staff is pleasant and the food choices will satisfy everyone, even children with their pizza and mac n cheese in addition to their regular items. The price is decent considering it is an all you can eat buffet. I have been a few... More

I never expect good food here. I know someone who has gotten sick on the fish free sushi. The scariest part at my last visit was the ice cream. The soft serve is always bad but the machine was down. To replace it they had large tubs for people too scoop themselves !!! Prepare prepare pre scooped dishes, get ice... More

American and Japanese food. Lunch was only $ 7.50 for each of us. The entry way had a nice fenced inpond with fish, which was nice. The whole restaurant was colorful. The food service was good. Everything from egg rolls to mac and cheese. Deserts and hand dipped ice cream too.

typical run of the mill chinese offerings and more. On Sunday, for about $14.00 you can get your fill on chinese food from the usual appetizers, rice, noodles, egg roll, wings, nuggets, riblets, crab rangoon, several different soups etc. Then there is a selection of crab legs, stuffed mussels, baked salmon and other delights. A salad bar, a desert bar,sushi,... More

Maybe this used to be good but this was a complete waste of money.The selection was great except for one small detail the quality!I can't remember the last time I complained to a manager and she was less than helpful.Worst food ever.
