It seems like Chinese buffets are all cut from the same cloth in the State of Maine lately. But I have to give credit where credit is due. The sushi and sashimi selection was fresh and varied. The buffet had a lot of choices and none looked like they had been sitting or dried out. Of course, coming at 12:30... More

The flavors and spices they use cover up a lot. Went there New Year day, was eating pulled some food apart and notice my Thai chicken still pink, you could still see some blood, I finally got a waitress attention to come to my table, I let her know, showed her and all she could say was I don't know,...

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

Was in the area doing other shopping when my GF asked if I wanted to go to lunch here. We were seated and was asked what we would like for a drink. We both asked for water. We got up and got our plate of food. Came back to the table and there was no water. Was several minutes before... 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
