Anniversary dinner

Loved the attention given to us in relation to our Anniversary. We were seated in the corner of the window which meant we both got to enjoy a view. We booked for 6pm when the restaurant first opened and this was great as it wasn't so crowded. Lots of food choices and the Japanese selection was our... read more

Ate there not long ago, was excited to enjoy a quality buffet. Was totally underwhelmed. If you want to eat a lot of very average food then check it out. If you want qualty then I would avoid. Service was also poor. Drink orders mixed up, plates taking a long time to clear. For the amount of staff they have... More

Lunchtime midweek is great. Riverview table, good service, fresh sashimi, not too crowded. Really nice to spent a couple of hours sampling everything.

Been to Melba a number of times in the past both for lunch & dinner, and like all other occasions this recent occasion for lunch didn't disappoint at all. It was to celebrate a Birthday and couldn't be more happier with the friendly staff, service and outstanding quality of the broad range of dishes on offer to choose from. A... More

We ate at the Friday night dinner buffet for a special occasion. Everything was expertly prepared and delicious. Plenty of seafood and vegetarian options. Friendly, knowledgable and helpful multicultural staff. Our occasion was recognised with a personal note and gesture at our table which is an extra nice touch. Although it was a special occasion for us, the food quality... More

Took my wife on a date night....the ambience was nice, service was excellent, food was good too but then expected much more for the price we paid.... As expected indian cusine had the biggest line......and half the deserts were gone by the time we got to that..... Overall not worth the hype or the money you pay for

We had a wonderful buffet lunch at Melba the Langham. I always enjoy this place, the food is always fabulous (especially the freshly cooked Nan bread!), and the service is good. I took my husband for the fist time for his birthday in January and he loved it too, so we will be back!
