We drive up from Lebanon regularly to eat at the Tin Tin . Dinner is best because they have great seafood and other dinner items that we especially like. We have tried other buffets in Salem with not good results :( the Chuck Wagon is ok pretty plain and flavorless though and we had the worst experience while eating at The Great Wall buffet :( the waiter was hacking and spitting in a hand wash sink right behind us in the middle of the restaurant needless to say we got up and left :(

Like all $10 (dinner price) Chinese buffets, few (in Salem, OR) have as many options as Tin Tin Buffet does. Its located along one of the busier areas on Lancaster Dr and features an array of Chinese-American (deep fried), authentic Chinese, sushi, fruits / deserts, and Mongolian grill. I am quite impressed with their mongolian grill and sushi variety, which is consistently prepared well. The staff is friendly and attentive.
