Cuisine: Asian, South Asian, Vietnamese
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

Exquisite Asian food needn’t be light years away! Welcome to Light Years Noosa.

Nestled on Sunshine Beach Road, it’s a quaint little spot. With tables lining the windows, cosy booths and sofas, there’s a table for a quick dinner or something more relaxed with that someone special. Its minimalist décor is wonderfully serene, whilst the playful shrubbery keep things fresher than fresh.

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 Ex 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.

This is the second time I’ve been to Light Years and once again did not disappoint. The food was ridiculously delicious and amazing cocktails. Atmosphere and fit out super cool and comfortable. And best of all the staff are all super friendly and attentive.

Light Years did not disappoint. We’ve had withdrawals from that salt and pepper tofu, fried cauliflower and shiitake dumplings all week. It’s such an ambient, beautiful restaurant- cannot wait to get back!

My first concern was that I could only book for four and we have a family of five. I think that needs to be addressed somehow by First Table.
The restaurant we chose encouraged shared dishes, which we planned to do. I wasn’t sure then how the fifth person would be factored in.
Our meal at Light Years was delicious and we will be keen to revisit.

'Light Years' is seriously light years ahead when it comes to service and quality dishes. Our party enjoyed every last morsel and the plates were sent back as clean as they would have been prior to having food on them. We enjoyed the 'no rush' atmosphere and didn't feel like we were being hurried along to make room for new diners. Light Years will certainly be our future 'go-to' restaurant of choice.

Light years is one of those places that leaves you feeling SO full & happy without feeling like you’ve pigged out or had anything even remotely unhealthy. Everything is made so fresh. Every dish is packed with flavour! The drinks are awesome too! I’ve eaten at both the Byron & Noosa restaurants. I have to say both exceeded my expectations but I think Buron just scraped by as being better. (Perhaps it has to do with their complimentary lime & cracked pepper prawn crackers YUM!!!) Great service with a smile. Great atmosphere. Top notch.

First experience with first table. So impressed - The food was sensational, staff very attentive and we loved the 80s music. We had 2 entrees and 4 larger dishes to share between 4 adults. We especially enjoyed the fried cauliflower, sticky sour pork ribs & the twice cooked crispy skin chicken. Will definitely be back

Obviously a popular place as it was quite busy, food was tasty and the service was excellent, my only issue was the close proximity of the next table and the lack of privacy.

Wow we love Light Years! From the moment you arrived the staff are super friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely amazing and a great menu to share. The staff are knowledgeable about the different dishes and guide you through with suggestions and portions are always plentiful. So many options of dining too with private booths, long tables, bench seat areas and outdoor seating.The location is right in the centre of Noosa and we loved watching the world go by.It was our 5th visit to Light Years and always they are consistent in service, food quality and a great price if you book with First Table.

The food was excellent, and service was great. My husband has lots of food sensitivities but it was no drama for the staff to communicate meal changes to the chef. We will definitely be back for the fun vibe and soul loving food. If you want 'a complete dining experience' Light Years will definitely have your back!
Can't wait for a rerun, thanks to the team at First Table and the Light Years crew aka food n fun geniuses:)

Wow ! What a great experience using First Table for the first time. I live near Light Years and have been wanting to go for some time but family life is expensive so meals out are quite far down in priority. However an offer of 50% off was too good to refuse so Saturday night at 5.00 we head down in our best Saturday night outfits to check it out..
We were greeted by a very friendly waiter and seated in a cosy booth. Fried chicken , Asian slaw, tofu. Bao buns and duck pancakes were all lovely , full of flavour and diverse.
The restaurant has been designed really well - a great improvement on the previous fit out . A nice cosy but cool feel.

A great night out and the feeling of smugness about getting our food half price is still lingering...
