Expect sizzling Asian cuisine and cocktails at this retro styled kitchen and bar.

Known for their insanely good South East Asian street food, Light Years is a hidden oasis of tasty bites and vintage decor. You’ll be snap happy here; think Hanoi in the 50’s with a rainbow colour scheme, paired with fresh Asian dishes and hand-candy cocktails.

The menu is a fusion of Australian ingredients, modern recipes and gorgeous presentation. Designed to share, mix and match small plates of shiitake wontons, kingfish ceviche and crispy fried chicken with sriracha mayo. Tuck into larger dishes, like the 5-spice roasted duck pancakes, or try the knockout turmeric and coconut fish curry.

Don’t forget to taste one of the legendary cocktails (try the Next Lover, with Byron Bay gin and watermelon, you’ll thank us later). Vibrant, unique and stylish to boot, Light Years promises an unforgettable dining experience.
