Melba

Melba

1 Southgate Ave Southbank, Melbourne 3000

I love a good buffet, and Melba in the Langham Hotel offers one of the better all-you-can-eat options in Melbourne. At approximately $85-100 a head for dinner, depending on the night of the week, it’s certainly not a cheap option, but the price reflects the quality of the food on offer. There’s a huge variety, from fresh seafood, salads, a roast meat station, Indian and Chinese food, an endless selection of cakes and cheese, not to mention chocolate fondue.

Fresh seafood

My favourite part of the buffet is definitely the amazing seafood – the oysters are massive and so delicious, I usually eat a dozen by myself! There are sauces that you can choose from, but I personally prefer the fresh salty flavour that comes naturally to the prawns and the big crabs legs.

Sashimi

There is also a sushi chef located next to the seafood station, who is able to prepare sushi and sashimi on demand – I really love the salmon sashimi, as well as their soft shell crab hand roll.

Mix roasted meat

The roast meat station even offer duck, which can then be made into Peking duck wraps on request!

Indian food station

All the classic Indian favourites, including tandoori chicken, beef rendang and lamb korma. There’s also a made-to-order naan oven where you can request plain, garlic, or even a sweet M&Ms naan!

Gnocchi

Yet another made-to-order dish of creamy mushroom gnocchi. I believe the dishes that are available change on a daily basis, so make sure to check before you book.

Cheese station

A cheese-lover’s dream, this area has everything from stinky blues to creamy bries.

Desserts

With so many different cakes and sweet treats on offer, it’s impossible to try them all, but an honourary mention goes to the M&Ms naan I mentioned before. The quality of the desserts aren’t fantastic though, so don’t expect any fancy techniques or mind-blowing flavours – by this time in the meal you’ll probably be too full to notice anyway!

Chocolate fondue

Finish up with a couple of strawberries dipped in chocolate!

The buffet at Melba is definitely a great choice if you’re looking for a nice experience with decent food. Of course, as with all buffets, the quality of the food isn’t as high as if you ordered a la carte, but there’s a huge selection and really great service too. It’s definitely worth a try if you’ve never been!
