Quanity and quality

Awesome Chinese food. Always a good variety and plentiful chafers filled with Chinese and some American foods. Atmosphere is okay; typical of a strip mall. Senior discount is 10% off; make sure you ask for it as it is not automatically given. They do charge for hot tea now but at a minimum... read more

I did not choose the restaurant. It was cheap and bland. I was brave and tried the pseudo sushi. One person in my party had gotten sick from this at tin tin before. I was there for lunch. The place was clean and airy but the food is always lousy. If you want cheap plentiful food this is for you.... More

The last two times we have been to Tin Tin the last time being 11/14/2014 the food was terrible. We like the pepper chicken and the last two times there the chicken was dry and over cooked. The food seems tasteless. I don't know if they got a new chef or what but until I hear differently I won't be... More

Not much to say about this establishment. Poor quality food...overcooked, mushy, and tasteless. The only things that tasted just OK to me were the fried chicken and the hot and sour soup. I had 2 pieces of chicken and one soup...a waste of time and money. Not even the desserts were good...not fresh at all. We went with another couple,... More

This place has a lot to offer, but it is all average. I would not go out of my way to go there except to meet a business client who likes going there.

Our motorcycle group meets at the Tin Tin quite often. It is by far the best Chinese Buffet in the area. Lots of choices to please the group. The price is great and we also get a senior discount. It is a little ride for us from Massachusetts but is well worth it especially on a good motorcycle riding day.

First of all, although the place is huge, it was nearly empty at prime dinner hour. 3-4 very young staffmembers hung around the front and rear, interacting minimally if at all with patrons. Prospective diners who want a large selection of breaded, fried, reheated, heavy ersatz "Chinese food" (in good conscience Tin Tin buffet items are not representative of Chinese... More
