We stopped in on a tuesday mid-afternoon in November. It was our first visit - and it won't be our last! What a pleasant surprise! We were greeted warmly by the host and the waitress promptly took our drink order. When We returned from the 50+ item buffet our drinks were there. We found the selections well-stocked and warm. We... More

Been here a few times over the last year. The food was good, it's kind of hit or miss; some days they're quick to replenish, other days not so much. But overall, they carry typical "Chinese" staples (pork, beef, chicken wings/fingers, etc), as well as a little bit of sushi, pizza, and a few other hot foods. They have a... More

My husband and I LOVE this place. We have a routine when we go in and I love the selection of food. The only thing I can complain about is the service. I have been comin here for a long time and I always feel rushed out. They bring you your check right before your done your first plate making... More

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
