Came here for fathers day with the family. Even though the price was above other buffets around the area it was well worth every penny. A wide range of seafood, fresh lobster was delicious !! Indian dishes, chef was making fresh naan breads with a wide range of filling options (try the m&m naan with ice cream for dessert). Chocolate... More

We visited this restaurant on Nov/27 Sun. Initially we wanted to try Sydney Tower buffer but after seeing all the bad reviews, we decided to do it here in Melbourne. If you are a seafood fan, esp. oysters, this restaurant (located at Langham Hotel) definitely won't disappoint you. 1) Oysters are fresh. 2) Also with seafood on ice, such as... More

Went to the Melba today for lunch and it was very disappointing. We started with floury crabs and tasteless Moreton Bay bugs. They were not fresh at all. When trying the roast meats the only roasted veggies available were roast potatoes covered in paprika! No pumpkin, carrot or even a parsnip to be found. Staff were stone faced and worked... More

餐廳在墨爾本的朗廷酒店入面,在尤利卡摩天台88的附近,地點方便,不難找到。 餐廳座位寬敞,光線充足,設計時尚,用餐感覺不錯。 五星級自助餐來說提供的食物種類破多,冷盤食材新鮮;熱盤方面則提供了印度菜式,扒類、即煮海鮮及意粉等,食材新鮮且製作水準不錯,略嫌海鮮及牛扒的生熟程度可以再掌握得好一點 (點medium牛扒但出來的似乎是medium well呢)。 價錢還好,整體性價比不錯。 但有一點可以改善的是軟件 (溝通) 方面,特別是預約及餐廳接待兩方面。 預約方面,兩個月前到Langham Supper Club網站用會員卡用"預訂餐廳座位" (Request for table reservation) 功能預約,酒店方面亦電郵回應了價目並以 "We look forward to welcoming you to Melba soon."作結,可能是英文不太好的綠故吧,誤解了電郵這個作結便是餐廳預訂確認,而不知道我要再一次double confirm我的預訂是否成功。 餐廳接待方面,當日是第一天到墨爾本,前一天經歷了8個多小時航班而當天亦花了若干時間遊覽其實也有點累,到達這餐廳時接待說我們沒有預約,而電郵的回應並不是確定預約,明白預約跟F&B接待是兩個不同的酒店部門,但接待侍應給我們的感覺有點像是我們是「白撞」似的,雖然最後我們也能夠被安排有坐位,但感覺已不太好受...... 餐廳食物及環境是五星級all-day dining質素,但F&B服務於五星級酒店來說還不太到位,有待改善。

The Melba Restaurant evening Grazing buffet was a highlight of or stay, such a wide selection of food types, shellfish, sushi, Indian, Chinese, Carvery, Italian, much cooked to order, and all really good to eat, even if they are not good for the diet.

My partner and I absolutely love Melba and because of this we have been multiple times at all different times of the day to experience different foods!! When you're eating high end food, the cost is hardly an issue. Beautiful venue, who doesn't love to dress up a bit?

The good: large selection of international food in buffet all you can eat style. Fresh seafood, indian, sashimi, western, asian food selection. Very clean, nice atmosphere, good service. The bad: They had a contamination situation, but don't let that scare you, that simply means that they are much cleaner and careful this time around.

Thank Elias S
