Friday lunches are back at Melba Restaurant

There are few things more quintessentially Melbourne than enjoying a lunch at The Langham, Melbourne’s acclaimed Melba Restaurant.

Standing the test of the most turbulent times, Melba has become a staple of Melbourne’s hospitality scene, showcasing finest locally sourced produce and innovative dishes from around the globe.

From their ever-popular sushi station to Chinese dumplings, Italian pastas, Australian seafood or their Indian station where naan is made to order and the tandoor oven is used to make succulent tandoori chicken, Melba has something for everyone.

Melba’s buffet dining experience of over 40 different dishes offers the perfect landscape for diners and multigenerational families; while you’re off sifting through the choice of house-cured salmon or butter poached lobster, your kids will be off enjoying the famous chocolate fountain.

According to The Langham, Melbourne’s Tara Bishop, executive chef Thomas Rappel is “almost fanatical” with his pride in sourcing locally grown and harvested produce.

“Over 80 per cent of our menu is sourced within 350km of hotel,” Ms Bishop said.


Our menu is designed to cater for even the pickiest eaters and buffet lets you get eating straight away, but whatever you do, save room for dessert.


“A feature of our menu has to be our Indian station, it’s non-negotiable. Fresh naan to order with recipes handed down from generation to generation.

With a literal smorgasbord of dishes, it would be easy to become overwhelmed by the choice, but with friendly staff on hand, all you need to worry about is how to fit it all in.

Melba’s famous Friday buffet lunches are back at the special price of $95 per person. Kids under three eat free, while children between four and 12 can dine from the buffet for half price or from the children’s À La Carte menu •
