Every table is taken when we visit Café on M in Tsim Sha Tsui East’s InterContinental Grand Stanford for dinner—and once you see the restaurant’s generous buffet offerings, you’ll understand why. Seafood is a particular speciality, with freshly shucked Australian oysters, crab legs piled high and picture-perfect sashimi snapped up as soon as it is prepared. Although the salad section feels a little lacklustre, there are plenty of hot dishes to choose from, including roast beef, grilled lamb chops and authentic Indian curries; look out for the roasted suckling pig, which draws long lines when it emerges from the rotisserie, but boasts gorgeously crispy skin and juicy meat that is worth the scrum. Desserts include a made-to-order crêpe station, chocolate fondue, an ice-cream buffet and miniature pastries. Dishes do empty quickly, so you may need several visits to ensure you get a fill of your favourite items, while staff are quick to clear dirty plates and refill glasses. As far as good-value buffets go, it’s clear to see why Café on M remains so popular with both hotel guests and local residents.
