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

Sometimes the sheer convenience of dining in outweighs the cost. As with most hotel breakfasts it doesn't represent the best value there is. Against that, and in keeping with most things at the Langham, the service is impeccable and the quality is very high.

Regular to eight restaurant and always come away satisfied. Atmosphere was great as were the staff. Buffet on demand especially for the meat/fish section is a brilliant idea.

I had really high expectations from the place, and was very optimistic. I was really expecting some sensational food and great ambiance, but it wasn't delivered. At dinner time the restaurant was full and the din... More
