After a love affair which spanned many years with this hotel when it was the Sheraton and the early days of The Langham! Having had our own wedding at Alto and hosting private birthday functions for immediate family this was in its day the true meaning of excellence in fine hotel hospitality in every sense of the word! As the... More

We went here for a special dinner on Saturday night and were surprised with 2 mini cupcakes at the table. The seafood was all lovely, very fresh and the grilled scallops were good too. (Apparently we were the only ones to order them that night since they were at the very bottom of the menu so most people simply didn't... More

After a few of my work collegues told me how good this place is I decided to take the plunge and book a friday night dinner with my wife. To say that it was dissapointing would be the understatement of the year. The buffet which is not inexpensive at $105 per head was ,frankly NOT worth half of that price.... More

I went to Melba for my birthday lunch. The staff were polite, the views of yarra river were beautiful and best of all the selection of food and desserts was just to die for. There was an Italian,Japanese, Indian and roast section and then a section with seafood and cold cuts dessert and cheese. They had a card with a... More

The Melba Restaurant at the Langham Hotel on Southbank has got to be the best buffet lunch in Melbourne for variety and quality of food. We love to go on a Sunday when the buffet includes, seafood, Japanese (including sashimi), Chinese, Italian and Indian food. The desserts are magnificent and there is an extensive wine list, although the wines are... More

We booked here because we cannot be accommodated at another buffet restaurant in the city. To be honest I liked their Naan bread with cheese and garlic but other than that, there was nothing special a person would expect on their buffet price. It was lacking in variety for the price that you will pay you would expect more.

Second visit here, my wife chose this for her birthday. She got a personal greeting on arrival with a card on the table and a birthday chocolate. Nice touch. The food is excellent with so many choices. We took advantage of the oysters before moving on to try the meat dishes. They had a Japanese section with freshly sliced raw... More
