Eight is an upscale buffet restaurant in the Langham, Auckland. The name comes from the fact that there are eight distinctive buffet stations, including Indian, sushi, shellfish, lamb, etc. Everything is very tasty. We had breakfast there also, since we were staying at the hotel: eggs cooked to order, Asian specialties, crepes, etc. And the coffee was excellent. Highly recommended,... More

Open late, great servcie, with good hotel wifi. The breakfast buffet has a really large range, even if it is a bit pricey at $30.

Eight different mini styles of food in the one restaurant. The food is exquisite and there is nothing left out. The staff treat you as if you are in some top restaurant in London. Definitely eat here it will be well worth it.

We do a ton of research before our trips to find the best restaurants in each city we visit. Somehow I was fooled by reviews into booking a reservation at Eight. My gut said 'A buffet?' but it sounded like an experience, so talked myself into it. Shame on me. The food is really not good here...almost inedible. For any... More

Good choice if you want to spend around 100$ per head. Fancy ambience, good service and a wide range of quality food and its a buffet. I brought a few friends here for a treat and it was a right decision cos the restaurant can cover pretty much all of their different needs and requirements, all left with happy faces.... More

Lovely food spoiled by totally inatentive wait staff. Having at for 20 minutes I had to stand to catch attention. Then I had to wait for anything else I wanted as staff bypassed me to attend to two men dining next to me, who actually pointed out to staff that I was wanting something. As an older woman dining alone... More

Delicous. Kids under 12 are half price which was a nice surprise. Even though my 12 year old out ate probably all of the adults there.

We had dinner at Eight and really enjoyed the variety and presentation of the food. The staff was really nice and helpful with the selection and explained "new" food to us. We even Alpaca meat, surprisingly really nice! It is not cheap but worth the dollars. We will come back.

Lots of choice of freshly cooked food. Could be a bit of a trek to the buffet if seated away from it.
