Our waiter and Joe were outstanding and took the liberty of reserving a spot for 15 in the Green Room after lunch and then up to the Ghost Room. The food was incredible. Highly recommend for a girls' lunch.

I really enjoyed the whole experience, including the opportunity to move the Mya Tiger to the Ghost Bar. Such a special day, and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants excellent food, and a unique st kilda experience. Something for everyone.

lovely setting in the recently renovated st kilda icon. Friendly and enthusiastic staff were mostly attentive and eager to make our experience a great one. The food was the stand out - whilst relatively small in portion, the quality in ingredients and taste was top notch. Mya Tiger best suited for a fun, buzzy group catch up with the food best shared. A fun and bright experience.

We ordered the banquet to try the food Mya Tiger had to offer. The appetizers were spot on, very refreshing and delicious. However as we proceeded, I noticed that the flavours of the food were very one-dimensional - no depth of flavour on most dishes. The chilli wontons lacked acidity, and was drowning in chilli oil which was also very spicy. All I could taste in this dish was straight up spice. The roast duck was quite flavourful albeit dry, and we did not have enough cucumber to go with the pancakes. Service was amazing, Mikaela (hope I got the spelling right) was very friendly and took really good care of us. She gave us recommendations on both food and wine and she really knew her stuff! We enjoyed her service that night and really appreciated the great hospitality

My guests were from country and interstate. After a great lunch I showed them around and they loved the place and the staff especially when staff took us to the cocktail floor which was closed. Thankyou Espy.

While the food was good, we had to wait considerably longer for our table than the booking time. We were then allocated a table in the bar area which was too noisy and it was hard to talk. While we appreciate the vibe, we had booked in the restaurant area which would have been at a more moderate level.

The cost of sparkling water at $10 per bottle is excessive. I wont return as a non drinker.

This place never disappoints from the awesome staff to the delish menu. When you go back for a second or third time (and you will) Be brave and don’t order the same thing because “everything” on offer is on point!! As Molly would say “ do yourself a favour”

I was really looking forward to my first visit to the new Espy. However, the food was pretty much what I'd expect from a suburban Chinese restaurant, just dressed up a little. The wait staff were efficient, almost too efficient but not intrusively so. The ambience was quite good - the reno is fantastic. just really thought the food would be amazing.

Beautiful job and every part of it was seamless.
I loved that it was a 'grown ups' restaurant however the table beside us had children who were treated beautifully by the staff and the other diners. It was lovely and inclusive yet private.
Completely delicious.
well done all round
and THANK YOU

Food was amazing, we had the banquet. My only complaint would be that there was far too much food served and so a lot of food went to waste. Would be good to have options on number of dishes served as part of a banquet menu.

Noise level too loud for easy conversation beyond the next person. With music Quote loud through the dining room speakers and also coming up stairs very loud from dance floor below, it made things less enjoyable as a dining experience. Banquet great; service great. Overall great fun. But is it necessary to have speakers up so loud in dining room?
