Enjoyable buffet but was expecting more!!

Came to the 5pm sitting for dinner and was expecting amazing things. Although the majority of food eaten was enjoyable I just felt that it was missing the wow factor. It sounds funny, but when I took my first look around I thought to myself "is that it!". Cold salads, meats were really tasty. As... read more

So much food and all pretty damn good. Came to celebrate a birthday with a friend - Melbas organised a nice memento for the occasion. A wide variety of food to choose from all around the room. Couldn't try everything but all food tried was of a high standard - the one exception: tried a steak and received a rubbery... More

We booked for breakfast on a Sunday morning to celebrate a birthday, the booking staff assured us a cup cake and candle would be on our table on arrival, this did not happen. It took 30 minutes for our lukewarm coffee to arrive and had to ask 3 different wait staff for a baby cino. The food quality is good... More

We had breakfast at the Melba at the Langham Melbourne. Fabulous food, fabulous ambience and fabulous service. I have now eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner and New Years Eve many times and it is just wonderful. Real value for money, but drink a lot as you will need to take out a mortgage.

We went for a birthday celebration on a Friday night which meant we could stay until late as Saturday night has restrictions. The choice of dishes, mostly made on the spot were excellent and I particularly enjoyed the sashimi, sushi and oysters. The salad bar is imaginative and has a great selection of seafood and cold meats. The roasts are... More

High Tea was absolutely wonderful. A wonderful Mother's Day gift. Delicious, varied freshly prepared food. Catering for special dietary needs was not a problem. Staff were extremely perceptive and pleasant. Food and drink is also much tastier when from fine quality dinnerware!

Our adult family had the 8.30pm sitting on a Saturday evening. From entering the foyer to the bar and waiting to be seated was a breeze. The staff were great and not overbearing at all. The choice of food was amazing. If you are a sea food lover then this is for you. I'm not but there were so many... More

Wether you are a hotel guest or a walk-in this is superb venue, the staff are attentive and friendly but not hovering. The menu will cater to all tastes and consistent with such an establishment the kitchen will do all in its power to cater for particular tastes. We were staying at the Langham so we had the full breakfast... More

Celebrated friends birthday here midweek with buffet lunch. There was a good variety of foods and as other reviews have noted the duck pancakes were extremely tasty. The desserts were also very good with lots of choices. They also have a live cooking station which was making noodles and pasta to order. The wait staff were very attentive and cleared... More
