PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
The Melba restaurant is at the top of the grand staircase from the entry of the The Langham, Melbourne. It's a large space with a great view across the Yarra river to Flinders Street. Redecorated in 2006, it's glamorous in an understated way, with comfortable chairs and deep carpets, and an edible colour scheme – coffee, caramel and mocca. There is an a la carte menu, but the main attraction is the generous buffet. This is a step up from the usual. There's not one big table, but a range of them, in different sizes: a free standing display of oysters, one for prawns, an elegant stretch of salads for starters.

The displays are always appetising, because they are constantly replenished. For hot dishes, there are cooking stations where dishes are freshly prepared, and you can tell the chef what food you like. Stir-fries are cooked to order, so are tandoori dishes, and filled naan breads. Top choices: oysters, roasts, Indian and stir-fries. The dessert buffet looks pretty as a picture, with miniature desserts lined up like chocolates in a box. Pleasant waiters, and a sizeable well-chosen wine list. Not cheap, but good value. The neighbouring Aria bar is elegant, and does a brilliant chocolate afternoon tea on Sundays.
