Asian
Here at Sum Yung Guys we have designed not only the menu, but also the dining room to highlight our spirit and passion for asian cuisine and culture. The food is an expression of everything we have come to love about the region, the cocktails have been developed to compliment. We have crafted the menu to promote a share style, this would suggest we strongly encourage dining with friends, family and beyond. The dining room has been styled to capture the personalities of the 4 partners that share this dream, it has a warmth and energy that resembles the food we put on the plate.

Food was fantastic, but the noise level terrible. I complained but was ignored saying that they were after a lively atmosphere.

The food at Sum Yung Guys is fresh, innovative and full of vibrant flavours. It is a humming spot and we ate here twice this holidays and would have been back again during our stay except the Yung Guys were taking off for two weeks of well deserved break. And excellent restaurant that never fails to please

We had waited over two months to get in. The waitress was not overly friendly and rushed us. The food did not meet expectations given the reviews and the wait list. We were excited to go, however will probably not return.

Great food, drinks and service, nicer at a table than at the counter - bar stools get a bit uncomfortable after a while.

Absolutely fabulous. The service was increasingly - we told the waitress what we liked and she gave us the most incredible options!
Only mistake was coming here the first night as made all the other eats in Noosa look average!

This is my 5th visit to Sum Yung Guys and after 4 very pleasing experiences I was very disappointed with it this time around. We ordered the Kingfish which came promptly and was delicious. We also ordered Sweet potato salad, chicken larb, mushroom dish, duck curry and roti. The sweet potato and mushroom dish came out quickly but the duck, chicken larb annd roti did not arrive for at least 50 mins after that. The mushroom dish was the highlight of the day and the duck curry was delicious but by the time it arrived we'd lost our appetite and the chicken larb was far too hot to be enjoyable. It was disappointing as I was there with a friend visiting from Victoria and I had been singing praises for this restaurant for months. I'm wondering if the event on the Cantilina left the restaurant kitchen lacking.

Delicious Asian food with a twist, fresh flavours and generous serves. Standout was the cuttlefish and green mango. Service was spot on.. friendly knowledgeable waitress, good spacing between each dish. Loved it!

Loved it again! Never disappoints! Took my girlfriend from the States this time and she thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Can’t get enough of that Roti! The kingfish and Waygu tartare were amazing and the confit duck so flavoursome and divine. Will definitely be returning to try the rest of the menu.

Amazing food from the Kingfish to the Crab Fried Rice to the Prawn Curry. As we hadn't been before, staff suggested we share a plate from the small, medium and large plate menu. Will definitely be back

Great food and service, however Was just very disappointed we were charged $40 for a kids meal for my 20 month old, because they could not ‘modify’ a dish for her, even though she has severe allergies.

We had entree and five minutes after we finished our mains arrived not acceptable it was like Myers cafeteria have entree we would have liked to wait 30 or 40 minutes so our food could digest. It was like you need to get out in a hurry so someone else could get the table. You need to ask people how long would they like to wait for there main meal. We live here and this is not acceptable you need to look into this as we will not come back again, this was our 4th time here unless something changes we will not be back.

We have been to Sum Yung Guys numerous times, and it has consistently been sensational, with the exception of our last visit. There were 4 of us at our table. We had all eaten the
cuttlefish previously and ordered it again Friday night. It came out hot, overly chillied to a point where you couldn't even taste the cuttlefish. We did return our meals explaining the reason as to why, however the chef decided that this is the way "it is always cooked". So a little disappointing. And our chicken dish was done in quite a similar style, overly chillied, and too hot to enjoy. We are normally chilli lovers, however on Friday night, it seemed that both these dishes were overly done to a point of being inedible.

Excellent night! Booked in advance a few weeks and glad we did. Great, friendly, efficient service.
Cool vibe. Excellent cocktails- recommend the Pho sho and the ginger/caramel tequila one. Dishes were great- had the prawn toast, wagyu tartare, cuttlefish salad, chargrilled chicken and roti for 2 of us. Couldn’t finish it and ended up taking the chicken home. So good for leftovers! All dishes awesome but faves were cuttlefish salad- mind blowing flavour! Spicy!++ and the chargrilled chicken- such flavour and so juicy! Not cheap but comparable to most Noosa region restaurants.

We make sure we have a reservation everytime we come back from the US for our annual vacation. Sum Yung Guys gift vouchers have become the go-to gift for my family and we could not be happier about this! The food is always sublime and the service and attention to the customers is outstanding. Flying back to Australia each year I actually think about our first meal we will have here and it makes me happy.

The secret is out. It is already too late. It's difficult to get a booking in short term. It is easy to understand why. We went back because last time was so good. Definately not a fluke.

Like so many, we came to experience the Matt Sinclair factor. We too wanted to know what the judges of Masterchef had tasted! Well, this surpassed anything we could have imagined. We had dined the night before, fine dining, at Perer Kuravitas in Hastings St, again for the tv factor. Not only was Sum Yung Guys twice as good, it was twice as cheap! Incredible value for an unforgettable night. Thank you for providing such an experience
