BUFFET REVIEW: Cafe on M at Intercontinental Grand Stanford

Yum.  What else can be said when a buffet is done right.  And boy did Cafe on M did just that.  Located on the mezzanine floor at the Intercontinental Grand Stamford.

If you desires copious amounts of meat, seafood and dessert.  This restaurant should be your first stop in Hong Kong.  The dinner buffet costed around $70 USD.  After 5 plates, it was well worth the price.

Walls of Spirits       Try not to lick the walls

You can make a reservation or walk-in.  During the week, the place is only half full and there was no need for a reservation.  I made a reservation to guarantee a seat on the weekend so I didn’t have to wait for a table because I wanted to be done right before the light show begins.

Grilled Meats

Beef tenderloin, lamb chops, chicken terriyaki and pork ribs were made to perfection and whatever level of doneness you like.

Carving Station

With three plate fulls of deliciously roasted meats, the staff got to know me real quickly.

Lobsters and More
Seafood Delight
Fresh Oysters

If seafood is more of your taste, welcome to paradise.  Lobsters, crabs, shrimp and oysters are waiting to satisfy any appetite.  You will also find sushi and sashimi and much more.

There is also fine selection of soups and breads.

Chocolate Fountain

No buffet is complete without an abundance of sweets.  You can dip plenty of fruits and marshmallows in the chocolate fountain.


When I got to the pastry bar, it was easier to just tell the attendant what I didn’t want.  From chocolate mousse to tiramisu and everything else in between, you will find a delectable to satisfy you sweet tooth or a mouth full.   My favorite is the creme brulee.

Ice Cream Dream

To round thing out, you had a wonderful selection of ice cream and toppings.  Because you can never have enough hot fudge on top of your sundae.  Or chocolate chips.  Or whip cream.

First Round of Dessert
Second Round of Dessert             Did you think I was going to stop after the first?


Did I forget to say Yum?
