Food was fantastic, the only thing I would comment on was the drinks service. We had to re-order quite a few of our drinks as they'd been forgotten. Otherwise great night.

Great location and vibe. Some starters on the banquet were too salty, and the accompanying sauces could have been better. Plenty of food though and great service.

Food,service and ambience were exceptional, however the Cantonese beef noodle dish disappointed as there was very little beef but lots of noodles.

A little end of term 1 in year 12 celebration for myself & 2sons. We had a cocktail in Ghost first which was wonderful with the sun setting & gorgeous sky as a backdrop and my boys commented on how lovely the staff were. I was also very happy to be seated in the gold velvet mini booths and have Colin looking after us in Mya Tiger. The food was fabulous - my boys loved it all (it was their first time there but they’d enjoyed the DIY banquet during lockdown) - the food, the setting & ambience, the cocktails, the friendliness and efficiency of staff. It was a very memorable & delicious night.

It’s was great to be back at Mya Tiger after so long, and good to see the Espy pumping on a Sunday. As always, the food was devine, service a bit hit and miss but overall can’t wait to come back

Mya Tiger was delicious- we all said it was the best meal we’d had since pre- covid times! It’s a great place to go with friends- all the food is designed for sharing. The service was excellent- we chose the waitresses’ favorite rosé and were glad we did. The Esplanade is so beautiful now too after an amazing reno - which just adds to the whole experience of eating tasty food and drinking fine wine whilst looking out at sea views. Thoroughly recommend!

We had a table of 5 blokes and over all it was great. The waiter was knowledgeable about the the food, he was spot on with the timing of the drinks and wasn't lingering but seemed to know just when to drop in on the table

We shared about 10-12 dishes between us and we were VERY satisfied

All loved everything, but probably wouldn’t go back because of the noise levels. Our age probably made a difference, but it was really hard to hear anyone speak..

Really great location for a Friday lunch and some cocktails afterwards. Staff were really helpful with recommending some tasty dishes, however potentially did too good of a job as we had way too much food left over at the end of the meal.

Best meal we’ve had at The Espy and we’ve been lucky to have quite a few. Highlight definitely the daily Special Sydney Rock oysters with truffle sauce. The ginger chicken dumplings great too as was the beef bao and crispy pork belly. Great service too.
