Chinese/American buffet.

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... read more

Tin Tin is a typical large Chinese/Asian/American food buffet. I enjoy eating there once or twice a year. Not more because I don't have a huge appetite, so I fill up in two trips to the buffet. There is a good variety of food and it is kept up to date and fresh. I especially enjoy soups and noodle dishes... More

Tin Tin is a nice Asian American type of boofay. Nothing fancy here but a clean restaurant with a whole lot of choices. All the usually stuff that you would except from this kind of place and if you expect gourmet food or personalized service then you are just being foolish. Plenty of fresh veggies and even a bit of... More

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. Affordable good lunch.

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

By far this is not one of my fav's! Everything was just blaw to OK....Had all the usual dishes but nothing to have seconds on. This place was just above poor and not even average.
