Dined here on a Sunday night to celebrate a family member's birthday. Four of us shared Eggplant Bao, Miso Caramel Eggplant, Cumin Spiced Cauliflower and Turmeric and Coconut Fish Curry. We also sampled a few of the cocktails. All dishes and cocktails were delicious and the selection was more than enough for four of us. I would highly recommend Light Years and will return next time I visit the Gold Coast.

From the greeting on arrival to our departure there was nothing we could fault. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. We weren’t rushed in anyway. Bottles of Prosecco and later Chardonnay were served promptly, at the correct temperature in good stemware. Wine list was short, interesting and well priced.
The food was excellent, quality ingredients carefully prepared and well presented. The kingfish cerviche and the cumin spiced cauliflower were standouts.
As we were celebrating a birthday we supplied cake but will try the panna cotta on our next visit. There will definitely be a next visit as there were so many interesting menu items we didn’t get to try.

If I could rate this place more than 5 stars, I would. We were greeted straight away upon arrival. Service was incredible. Staff were friendly. This food is by far the most amazing food we have had (both my partner and I).

We have been to many restaurants and can easily say that every meal was unique and full of flavour such as the kingfish- Who would have thought the coconut flavours would go hand in hand. The truffle infused dumplings were amazing.

The cocktails and red wine list - incredible

Wish we had this restaurant in Adelaide. Would go once a week!

Every dish is just amazing and full of flavour. Plenty of options to share a variety of items. Book ahead as it is often full.

The people were nice and helpful and the small servings were well cooked. When I say small I mean very small and very expensive, not good value at all. We picked up a pizza on the way home!
