We attended a friend's birthday celebration here and it was just amazing! The variety of food is astounding and no-on left the table hungry, they catered for every possible taste. I didn't stop raving about it for weeks to anyone willing to listen.

Whilst Melba buffet may be on the pricey side you most definitely get what you pay for. The food is excellent, the variety is spoiling and the setting is gorgeous. The food is always plenty and replenished before you realise it it running low, the servers are very attentive whilst not being overbearing. Lovely, fresh food, excellent selection of seafood...

The location is extraordinary, inside the Langham Hotel and with the nice view on the river banks. It is a high-end buffet restaurant, the food is of very good quality and the service very professional and friendly.

Just another ordinary hotel buffet place. The raw section is obviously not fresh. The hot dish is nice idea, but the wait time would be too long when the place is busy. The service is getting slow, we need to ask to re-filled our water all the time and the place is not even busy. ** Mostly of all, the... More

During a stay at the Langham I indulged in a buffet breakfast. Wow, what a treat! Lots of freshly cooked hot meals, fruit, smoothies and fresh juices, pastries and healthy options. Beautiful view of the yarra and the CBD as well. Definitely worth a visit!

We enjoyed a wonderful buffet lunch at the Langham Hotel which had an enormous selection of cuisines: fresh seafood, sushi, Indian, Asian, traditional English roasts with all the trimmings, large salad bar, dessert section and the chocolate fountain. Service was excellent - water glasses were continuously topped up, plates removed effortlessly and friendly. Will definitely return. One negative: Prawns were... More

The food is good at Melba's as far as buffets go, it's fresh and the wait staff are very friendly and attentive. I was dining on my own as I was staying at The Langham for business and received a discount voucher on checking in for dinner otherwise I really wouldn't do it. There are so many great restaurants close... More

Visited for a family birthday celebration. Service was excellent. Food was of high quality and all Australian and freshly presented. You will not find a better buffet in such a scenic location in Melbourne. Can not believe some of the negative reviews posted here.

We have visited Melba on a number of occasions for the dinner buffet and love the quality and wide selection. Being part of The Langham Hotel, we normally start with drinks in the lounge before and often following dinner. Choose from the early of later sittings but know the food is excellent. Don't be shy and ask the chefs for... More
