I'm a huge fan of fine dining restaurants and when it comes to buffet, i quite enjoy the variety & freshness that Melba has to offer. This must be my 9th visit to this restaurant, need i say more?

I have visited Melba on quite a few accocasions over the years, but unfortunatley my last visit was disappointing, no where near as good as they use to be and the desserts left a terrible taste, bit of a hame as the langham Hotel itself is just a amazing place to stay

A great spread awaits you: from fresh fruit to muesli to cold cuts to hot selections, everything you expect in a 5-star hotel restaurant is there. And there was no extra charge for the Flat White! The egg station is very good, you can build your own Eggs Benedict! Why only Very Good instead of Excellent? The diy toasters are... More

We were shown the buffet and the selections We had a male older waiter who made the experience feel like a rushed dine in place. He cleared the plates constantly... More

This was my third time visiting Melba - the food was great as always. There are so many things to choose from making it suitable for a range of different people. The service wasn't great, and we made a booking weeks in advance but got a lousy table up the back with no view what-so-ever which was disappointing. I would... More

This is probably my third time dining at Melba and while we had a lovely meal, the selections were down a little and choices not the same as in the past. Missing the crab claws and either a shellfish or oyster cooked special. The sushi bar still good and the prawns and oysters were of a good standard. Duck pancakes... More

$40 per person gets you access to the buffet. I booked here even though we weren't staying at the hotel. It's a good range with everything you'd expect and a little more. It still doesnt compare to some of the other hotels around the world. i.e. Anantara Riverside Resort (Bangkok). Possibly because this is more targeted for the business person... More
