The Langham, Sydney’s Kitchens on Kent is back open again every day

by James Wilkinson

Australia’s first ‘fine-dining meets luxury buffet restaurant’, Kitchens on Kent at The Langham, Sydney is now open again seven days a week.

The Langham, Sydney’s Food & Beverage Manager, Eric Lo, says it’s the same buffet that everyone knows and loves but with the re-opening, the experience has been truly elevated.

“Whilst we’re a buffet restaurant, we want our guests to have the chance to sit together in a civilised setting and enjoy each other’s company,” he says.

“This can be challenging when you’re up and down and back-wards and forwards to the open-kitchens… That’s why we’ve incorporated culinary options that are brought straight to the table.”

Lo says upon their arrival, guests will receive a gloriously well-stocked, fresh seafood tower direct to their table, or for non-seafood lovers, a Kitchens on Kent charcuterie tower.

He says guests then have the opportunity to explore the live-kitchens of the restaurant at their own leisure or alternatively, they may wish to order the fresh sushi, sashimi and Chef’s Signature dishes which are all cooked-to-order and delivered to your table.

“It’s the best of everything and the perfect experience for even the fussiest eater,” Lo says.

The buffet incorporates seven kitchens traversing the globe in one fine dining room.

International chefs dish-up freshly-baked naan and fragrant Indian curries in the tandoor oven, fresh pastas, oven-roasted seafood, molten beech oven pizzas, plus robata grill and rotisserie meats such as Angus beef, Berkshire pork belly and Southern Highlands lamb leg.

There’s also bundles of sushi and sashimi, fresh lobster, plus crisp salads, soups, acres of fancy cheese and charcuterie, dozens of cakes, ice creams and even a chocolate fountain at the dessert station.

Kitchens on Kent serves dinner every day (5.30pm – 10pm) for AU$130pp on weekdays and AU$148pp on weekends. Lunch is open from Friday to Sunday (12pm – 2pm) for AU$130pp.

All sittings include unlimited tea, coffee, soft drinks and juices, whilst you can also expect an extremely impressive wine list from the The Langham, Sydney’s cellar.
