My husband and i celebrated my birthday over seafood buffet dinner at Melba Langham Hotel. As usual, the wow factor is everywhere. Fantastic selection of seafood. Top notch table service. Loved the japanese sushi station. Freshly cut sushi was unbeatable. The restaurant setting with scenic view of the river is just amazing. Can't say there is any thing like the... More

Walking into the Langham to go upstairs to Melba restaurant is a treat in itself. The staff and service are fantastic. The food is quality and who doesn't love a buffet?? We booked on the day but it was only for two if you have a group I would book in advance as it is busy. I suggest 12:00 start... More

I knew I should't have after the last time but a friend particularly wanted to go. This time, we tried "Tiffin". Imagine a comfortable room with white table cloths and attentive serving staff........dream on! The reality is that you sit in the bar area at a table appropriate for a bar. People around us were eating hot chips and drinking... More

Had buffet breakfast here while staying at The Langford. I was hoping for fireworks for my $40. I didn't quite get fireworks, but overall found the range, quality and service to be high. The highlight for me was a wok station that cooked mee goreng to order for me. I also loved the fruit smoothies and the lovely ham I... More

Went with a group from work on a Friday night for the buffet dinner. An amazing selection of cuisines (seafood, Indian, Japanese, Chinese, Australian) all prepared beautifully. Took bits and pieces of most things... being sure not to forget about the great range of desserts. Enjoyed everything I chose without overeating which is easy to do at a buffet. My... More

We stayed at The Langham recently and on the first morning were a bit tired and decided to stay in for breakfast. At $40 a pop we were expecting magic, but sadly we got mush. Everything in the heated section was luke warm bordering on cold, the coffee was cold, the food was mushy and the sausages were pink in... More

We have been eating here every year for the past 15+ years ( sometimes 2-3 times a year) and sadly we would have to say, it is not what it used to be. The variety is not as extensive as it used to be, although the prawns are still of a good quality. The (beetroot, black eyed beans, lentils &... More

We were given a voucher for dinner for 2 for a wedding present. What a great gift it was. Food was just wonderful and of the highest quality. The buffet is set up in different stations including seafood, Indian (with freshly cooked pita bread), carvery, salad bar, cheese table, stir frys, sushi table and more. Service is great, very professional.... More

Went for a business lunch. This place has a rep of being one of the top two buffets in Melbourne (along with the Conservatory), so my standards were pretty high being my first time. The first thing to note is that there is a sashimi counter! This is an absolute winner - I've never seen sashimi at a buffet lunch... More
