We stayed at the Langham overnight & came here to breakfast the next morning. The breakfast is by no means cheap but it is a lovely setting & the staff are helpful. The selection of food is quite good & the food itself is very tasty. I would like to see even more selection of food perhaps, especially in terms... More

Loved the place, the food but still thought it was overpriced for the food offered though it was tasty. Went there for the dinner buffet and would recommend it to a friend provided that s/he is not dying for sophisticated food.

We had the buffet dinner which was okay! There was a great variety to choose from but the quality has gone downhill (we have been here many times when it was part of Sheraton Towers) Won't be returning here. Will be dining elsewhere.. At the Crown!

Looking for a chance to spoil yourself for lunch in the city ...head to the Langham Hotel for a buffet in the Melba restaurant. A good selection of foods, excellent service, good drinks and relaxing. Not too cheap at $57pp; but to spoil yourself once in a while, why not. Do ring a book if you want table next to... More

Had high expection as recommended by a local friend. Food was decent, nice atmosphere and a good range of seafood (South Australian prawns, crab legs, fresh sashimi etc.). If you want to save money but still taste the selection, go on a weekday lunch buffet as we only paid $57 each (at least $85 for weekday dinner and can be... More

Not a lot of options for vegetarian but everything I did have was great. The naan bread is AMAZING. We've been there a couple of times and it's always the same veg curries so gets a bit boring but the desserts make up for it. Remember to book well in advance. Also,the breakie is really good too!

The great thing about this upscale restaurant is that it is a buffet so you can eat as much as you like rather than some tiny portion. I had about 5 full plates of delicious food ending with chocolate fountain. Awesome. A little expensive though but yummy.

We had a very enjoyable buffet dinner here. There are a wide variety of choices, many cooked fresh to order. We had an excellent seat at the window, with an amazing view. The staff are attentive although drinks are slow. We have also had a similar buffet at the Crown's Conservatory which truthfully was better quality with a wider variety.... More
