This Chinese buffet restaurant has seen its better days. The food is not very good, the selection unimaginative. We used to enjoy good meals at TinTin....but we will not return. Most of the offerings were soggy and tasteless.

We were invited here for a birthday dinner. I checked it out on trip advisor and I think as a result went in with the appropriate expectations. Nothing too fabulous but not terrible. I also expected poor service which they did deliver on. The food...More
