Stunning architecture, what would be an incredible view were we not sat in front of a wall with side windows overlooking the roof. Wine we ordered did not arrive. Food delivery odd, coffee for two turned into 3, staff v keen to clear our plates.
And I was unable to make a reservation for later in the month- table of 10. Some corporate speak sales person came to our table, took details and said she would email me. I’m still waiting. Oh and “capturing” a credit card is actually pre payment required, please say it as it is.
Food was ok, small serves. Sadly will not hurry back. We’ll stick to drinks downstairs.

Can not recommend more highly.

The food was beautiful! I was was with two other and we decided to just get lots of nibbles for lunch.
I am still dreaming about the caramelised eggplants, prawn toast & calamari in particular!

The service was fantastic. Attentive, informative and lots of fun!

The venue is stunning & perfect for group bookings!

The food was great, the waitress was lovely. It was hot by the window but she closed the blind which helped. The room was quite noisy and it all seemed fairly chaotic.

We loved the food just not the time limit and being told we can’t order the feed me/banquet option as they needed table back also being told we couldn’t order more as there wasn’t enough time. It’s not nice being rushed off a table when you have a booking.

The space is absolutely divine - shabby chic with a great bar to head to before you sit at your table. Food comes second to the space and vibe but is simple and yummy with a great drinks list

You need more sound proofing, maybe even just under the tables. Otherwise between roof battens.

First time to the Espy since the reno. Came for Sunday lunch and Mya Tiger is just stunning (as is the whole Espy fit out) they have nailed it. The main room is comfortable, beautifully decorated, open and bright. The service was warm, friendly and super efficient. The Chinese menu was perfect for our lunch. Can't wait to return with more friends.

We were very disappointed with the wine list. We tried 4 different wines varying in price from one of the cheapest at $68/bottle to $80 bottle and thought they were all disappointing. It was a very expensive night due to the cost of the drinks.

Great menu for sharing, we chose a quite a few small plates, the duck and then two mains. We were impressed by everything- the prawn toast was a highlight, big juicy prawns inside not the usual shrimp paste style! The boas were spot on, especially the crispy pork. The rice had so much flavour we agreed it was the best fried rice in Melbourne, the duck was average nearly the same as you get elsewhere, the only negative was the eggplant it wasn’t to our taste we thought there could be more flavour.
The service was attentive and knowledgeable, every staff member had a positive vibe.
Will be back again for sure, and would recommend that you make a booking if you want to go!
