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.

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...

My partner and I arrived and were seated by super friendly waitstaff who gave us a bit of history on the outlet at our request.
We ordered some cocktails and starters, and upon seeing how amazing the food was we ordered almost everything on the menu.
The serving sizes are generous, and we were so full and delighted with the food that we are already talking about returning with a group of friends!
I would highly recommend the dumplings, cauliflower and pork belly, they were our favourites and were phenomenal.

Light Years excites me! Great location, friendly services and fabulous food. Staff always helpful in their suggestions. It is share plate style of eating, but I found it hard to share the Duck Pancakes! The Pork, Fish Curry, Scallops and spring rolls were delicious. Highly recommend Light Years.

We had a fabulous meal at 'Light Years' Asian Diner this Sunday evening, we will definitely go there again...their Chilli/Caramel Pork-Belly in steamed Bao-Buns were to 'die for', yum yum! Then the LYFC (their Fried-Chicken) & the wonderful aromatic Coconut/Turmeric Fish-Curry...were all scrumptious! Fantastic!
