Went for sisters 25 wedding anniversary. There was ten of us. All of us loved it. Awesome food and service. Can't wait to return. All sorts of food for everyone. Seafood was my favourite. Went back three times. Curries were great too. Great place to try kangaroo and ostrich. Not cheap but wow so worth it...

We visited April 3 for a 40th birtday, and our entire table loved the quality food and wide selection, very easy to please all tastes here. Comfortable dining environment, easy to hear conversations, and superb staff make this aucklands best 5 star, multi regional restaurant

My father always enjoys a good buffet so we took him here for his birthday and we all enjoyed the quality and choices of food. It was lovely to be able to select a piece of fish or meat and have it cooked for you by the chef. The fruit crumble dessert was Excellent.

Had familly dinner here for nephews 21st. Food was great. Service was excellent. A lot of family members, it was there first time to 8 so Maitre D gave us a mini-tour of the stations. I like how the staff are able to recommend specific salad (or they make a salad up for you) and matching dressing with your meats.... More

Have been twice now with a group of friends and enjoyed the experience both times. Really enjoyed the huge range to choose from. Hard not to over-indulge, with seafood, exotic meats, some cooked to your liking in front of you, curries, salads, sushi bar, and don't forget the desserts. Great atmosphere to dine in.

Every chance we get we head to EIGHT. Some say it's pricey but the food is good quality and there is lots of variety for the picky eaters. Breakfast is the best (esp. the made-to-order omelettes). A big thumbs up for their home-made berry yoghurt. Lunch comes in 2nd but only because Dinner is usually too busy. Have been to... More

With the Langham being one of the best restaurants in Auckland we went to the Langham and expected great things. Unfortunately what we got was a very different story. The waiters were not great, we got a drink each at the beginning then after that were not offered a drink once ours were finished. The only reason they came back... More

An interesting take on buffet dining - customers can select from a variety of high standard dining options, freshly prepared in front of you by experienced chefs. The curries were excellent, and the pasta and chicken casserole were also worth a second helping. The one bad thing about this restaurant is it is too tempting to eat too much and... More
