Light Years

Vietnamese in Byron Bay

Modern Vietnamese food is served with style at this arcade restaurant and bar. Small, medium and large plates are designed to share, but the silky shiitake wontons and crispy spring rolls are hard to part with. Pho lovers will appreciate half and full serves of the traditional broth (with an option for vegans), and all dishes come with lashings of fresh herbs.

With pink walls, neon signs and a cranking 90s RnB playlist, the vibe here is as fresh as the menu. A short but inventive cocktail list plays with ingredients such as Thai basil, Vietnamese mint, kombucha and coconut milk.
