Great food

Food is served from eight stations (hence the name!) I found it too crowded at lunchtime but dinner was more relaxing and the freshly prepared food excellent.

I really enjoy the experience of the Langham, being able to choose from 8 stations of various types of food and having the bulk of it cooked before you, pretty buzzy! I'm a big fan of the Japanese, seafood and dessert stations and spend most of my time there now (as I've been a few times now :)) I have... More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner out with colleagues. This is one buffet unlike most others you will find. Freshest food available that is cooked when you select. The different food stations/areas have very knowledgable chefs. Fantastic wine menu that offers up some wonderful options. Colleagues had cocktails that were great. Would go back again :)

A buffet unlike anything that you will see outside of Las Vegas. Incredible selections of foods from around the world. Great sushi, assorted meats, Indian, vegetarian, fish and save room for the wide selection of desserts.

An amazing gastrotrip around the world with islands of freshly prepared food. Tasty, elegant, original - a mix of a la carte and buffet options, and yummy desserts!

Delighted to find soft shell crab on the menu - a favourite, which is difficult to find in NZ. Done perfectly, with chili sauce to accompany. Dining alone (on business in Auckland), the service was attentive and friendly but not intrusive so ended up having a lovely dinner.

We had the breakfast included in our rate, but either way, it was unimpressive. Yes, you could get omelettes custom made, waffles, sushi, ice cream, noodles, meats and cheeses, fruits, etc, but there was nothing outstanding other than the amount of food one could consume. Same with dinner, which was over $100 per person. My husband and I had one... More
