Sure its a bit more than you would generally want to pay but for a special occasion wow what a place to go! Amazing fresh food. Great assortment. We went just before Christmas for a lunch so it was busy but there wasn't a long wait for anything. Lovely tasting food. Would return for another special occassion

This was an amazing restaurant and we came for two nights, with completely different experiences! Even though the restaurant was busy on both nights. The first night the staff were delightful and helpful, they provided hot plates when asked and mixed and dressed a salad and generally were really helpful with whatever we asked. The display and food was exceptional.... More

We stayed in the hotel for an overnight stop and arrived a little late in the evening. We were able to have dinner from a limited menu. The food was ok.

Where do I start with this. My husband and I visited this trendy restaurant while staying at The Langham during our visit in December 2016. We tried the first night on a walk in basis but it was fully booked out. We returned the next night on reservation and we were blown away by what this restaurant had to offer.... More

Restored my confidence in this type of dining, its very well done. Small portions from each station got us through the meal, only the American grill station dissapointing with tough meat.

A busy bustling environment- quite spread out with the serving stations at one end of the restaurant. If your table is at the end like ours it was quite a walk to the food which included steps. So ask for a table closer to the cooking stations. The food variety was excellent! And it was mostly very tasty and fresh!... More

Eating at Eight is an experience. It's expensive for a buffet but it is very different. It has 8 different stations some where you chose your fresh meat gush or pasta and they cook it for you as you watch. The choice is amazing from freshly made sushi to goat curry. Polished service tops the experience. The wine is very... More

This breakfast service is definitely not in keeping with the hotel. The waitress on arrival was less than welcoming & unresponsive to my comments about a soggy eggs benny. I have spent similar amounts in different parts of the world and $40 for this place is vastly overpriced by at least double. Other venues in similar style locations have offered... More

A small group of us came for a special dinner, and it was a great experience. The concept is straightforward: there are 8 different cuisines/"stations" of food (eg, pasta, Indian, desserts) and it's buffet style, in that you help yourself to as much as you want from as many as you want. (Pro tip: don't eat much on the day... More
