Melba has always had a reputation for being Melbourne's best buffet breakfast - and it probably is, but it's starting to feel a bit tired and dated. Given the strength of the restaurant scene in Melbourne, this grand old dame could do with a reinvention more worthy of the location and current dining scene.

I checked the reviews here before I made a reservation. Though the service is above average, I find it very expensive for a 99$ buffet of this size and quality. Those who say that it is massive and has a very good selection of cuisine obviously has not been out of Australia. Its entire buffet area is just the carving... More

We come here for a work function once a year for a buffet lunch and it never ceases to amaze me. This weekend we went for the breakfast buffet for the first time. It blew me away! I love everything about the Langham

In celebration of my upcoming half century (yikes), my daughter's upcoming trip to Europe and my son's acceptance to a university course we decided to celebrate with a buffet dinner. Friends had mentioned the Langham was gorgeous but I wasn't quite prepared for just HOW lovely. Some reviews I had read mentioned poor service, ordinary food and brusque staff but... More

We had both breakfast there (twice) and dinner. Each time the problem was that the ambitious desire to provide a vast array of choices isn't matched by implementation. As a result, only a few items were worthy of this class of establishment. For example at breakfast the Western cooked dishes (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, spinach, etc) sit on the...

Had the buffet lunch on Sunday. Great variety of food to sample. The wide array of fresh seafood is a great way to start. The duck pancakes, made on request are fantastic! The Asian/Pasta area needed more chefs as the demand for Garlic Prawns, etc always ensured a queue and a wait. The Indian area offered a great variety but... More
