Buffet food is generally mediocre. This place fits that description, but it's a good place to go with kids. The choices are endless. Everyone can find something to eat. Typical Chinese buffet foods.

I went to the Tin Tin Buffet Easter Sunday because that was where my mother wanted to go. We paid thirteen dollars for a midday meal. Foods on the warming tables were just that, warm, not hot. In the past every warming table has been loaded with food. This day two of the tables were used for desserts. The chicken... More

Im not big on the restaurant, end up spending more than I want and service is pretty standard and rarely exceptional. I now do mostly take out . Its way cheaper that way as they charge you per pound... you learn which dishes to avoid and which are pretty good. Its okay for the price. Certainly not high quality dining... More

The buffet here is rather large, with large tubs of ice cream. We came during dinner on a Friday night, and they were constantly replenishing and refreshing the food. Specifics: the sushi didn't blow me away. It all seemed colder than I expected, which may sound odd. It seemed like the ingredients were recently thawed. The barbecue pork did not... More

My daughters and I ate here while in town for a Soccer Tournament. We were seated immediately (at 6:30 on a Saturday evening). There was a large selection of food. My 4 year old thought their macaroni and cheese was just amazing. My 9 year old loved the shrimp. It was a good value. If in the area again, I... More

Wow - there are some tough reviewers in this town. Situated in an aging mall this is easy to get to. The first thing you notice coming through the door is the cleanliness. There is no heavy odor of grease - just a pleasant Koi Pond with waterfall. I entered with realistic expectations as to what can be expected in... More

It's an ok mediocre buffet. Some things are good some things are gross. $11 something for each person at dinner not to bad, lunch $7 something. All in all there's something to eat but wouldn't go out of my way to eat here

The food is midway from good to great depending on what you choose to eat. It has a huge salad and desert bar as well as the main food. It is very well laid out and very clean. Excellent staff.

My daughter and I get to go to a buffet on our birthdays and Tin Tin did not disappoint. The have a large variety of food. The rice and the lo mein are not what you would get from a regular place but most of the other items were good.
