Classy, great menu. Food was presented well and cooked beautifully, everyone in our party raved about their meals. Staff were attentive and efficient. Ticked all the boxes for us.

Ever felt like a nice dinner out and just really not known what you want to eat? Number 8 really is the answer to that problem. My daughter calls the place "I don't know' which somehow seems appropriate. There are 7 different areas each cooking and preparing food to order right in front of you. The food is always fantastic.... More

The in-house advertising for this restaurant claims it is a gourmet experience. Sorry it's not. We stayed recently and had breakfast and the buffet dinner. The breakfast was very pleasant but if you can't get breakfast right at a 5 star hotel then give up hospitality. The buffet dinner at $95 was disappointing. Very small portions of meat at the...

I know it's a fancy restaurant but mine was paid by someone else. To me who cares how much it costs! Allow me to compare to some finest buffet you can find in Hong Kong. Basically one area that you need to check is that meat counter. From beef to lamp, you can order as much as you want (save... More

I surprised my partner with an all expenses paid lunch, dinner and weekend stay at the Langam here. He was so surprised and we were by far amazed! It was gorgeous. They looked after us so well. The food is to die for and I stayed in it until closing. The variety of food goes on and on and just... More

First time, and I was impressed with the food selection and the service. I agree with one of the other reviewers who said the decor was bland, but my experience was way more positive and enjoyable it seems. I liked the wide selection and managed to pace myself so I could partake of more. I started with mussels and crab... More

We have heard good reviews, so it is with great expectations when we visited this place. It was supposed to have eight different cuisines, and hence the name. Lets start with the good bits. The Japanese cuisine was acceptable. There was a soft shelled crab nigiri sushi that I quite liked. The other sushi flavours were just run of the... More

Dined here for the buffet twice, and as the name may suggest there are eight sections to choose your food from; thus one cannot complain about the variety of choices. However despite such a range, it seems that not all of them are proportionally as great as one another. A few were lackluster, especially when one is expected to pay... More
