Had two people say this would be the best meal ever and I did not think it lived up to those recommendations. I would rank it with a high end casino buffet. No better, no worse. You could get meats grilled to order but then you had to stand around and wait for it to cook. Bread pudding was the... More

I agree with others that everything was cooked perfectly, but nothing was exceptional. So as a place for a tour group with something for everyone -- awesome. For a drop by meal I would put it at average.

This is an amazing buffet with foods for many cultures. There is such a variety for breakfast with cooked to order eggs and other foods. It is really gourmet buffet at its best. The wait staff is attentive and friendly. This was a great start for our New Year. Don't miss the chocolate fountain. There really was something for everyone

Went with 6 mates and had a brilliant time. From the moment we were seated by the professional and attentive staff, our experience was off to a great start. We were guided through the different food areas and it was extensive. Though it is really a buffet, it is a most different type. Most of the foods are actually cooked... More

Nice buffet with lots of food choices, the sushi was not that great that's why I give it a 4 star rating. The cool part is the selection of meat: cangaroo, alpaca, venison and more. Pricy but it's worth it

This place is almost overwhelming when you first see the selections on offer. Amazing really! As a vegetarian I had loads of options and my meat eating husband was in steak heaven! Food was fantastic. Staff were friendly. The layout is a little odd and you can be seated quite a way from where the food stations are, but all... More

I stayed at the Langham hotel and The Eight restaurant happens to be one of their two in house restaurants. I went there for a buffet breakfast and the choice and spread of food is the most extravagant. You are almost spoilt for choice. Sausages were great, eggs were cooked or poached, or even tailor as you please. Breads and... More
