Apart from being everyone’s go-to store for furniture and everything home related, IKEA also has its own restaurants in the Kowloon Bay and Sha Tin locations. Unlike the quick grab-and-go food counters at IKEA in Causeway Bay, the IKEA restaurants let you select your food on a tray and then take it to the large sit-down areas for the whole family to enjoy. A popular location to dine with the kids on a weekend, IKEA serves a range of comfort food from its home country of Sweden, including salmon and, on occasion, fillet fish as a meal option (since Nordic seafood is a really big deal).
Located in The Luxe Manor hotel in TST, FINDS is Hong Kong’s first Scandinavian restaurant, serving signature seafood dishes from the Nordic countries in a number of styles. With Scandinavia well known for the top-quality seafood on offer, the award-winning restaurant makes sure to import all the ingredients from Northern Europe.
Cafe at Hyatt Regency (TST)
Cafe at Hyatt Regency in TST offers a wide range of cuisines consisting of salads, a pasta and pizza bar, wok dishes, seafood and more. Despite being a popular choice for its buffet option, the Cafe also offers à la carte dining – although we highly recommend taking advantage of the seafood on ice at the buffet (as well as the dessert counter!).
The luxurious Langham hotel in TST is home to Bostonian Seafood and Grill, known for its menu showcasing lobster and fresh oysters. Seafood Fridays is one of their themed semi-buffet lunches, with fresh seafood served on an ice bar, whilst their Sunday brunch also features imported lobster and chargrilled abalone.
