Saké Restaurant & Bar | The Rocks

Boasting an endless array of sushi and sashimi, as well as delectable mains, Saké Restaurant & Bar is a haven for gluten-free folk. At this contemporary Japanese restaurant you can opt for a banquet or à la carte, signature dishes include: silver cod lettuce cups; wagyu teriyaki on sautéed shiitake and buckwheat; and jalapeño salmon with crunchy daikon slaw.

El Topo | Bondi Junction

El Topo offers a modern-Mexican dining experience, with a 100 per cent gluten-free menu, spanning tacos, quesadillas and hearty share plates. You must try the Huitlacoche Y Hongos quesadilla, prepared with Mexican truffle, mushroom, salsa verde and queso Oaxaca. El Topo's large tables, extensive cocktail list and vibrant atmosphere make it perfect for group dining.

Red Lantern | Surry Hills

Red Lantern on Crown is a must for any foodie. The Vietnamese menu is primarily gluten-free, with a plethora of options from entrée through to dessert. Be sure to try the oven-roasted eggplant, chargrilled fish with galangal and black pepper and the coconut crème caramel.


Mexicano | North Narrabeen

No man gets left behind when it comes to the goodness of Mexican food! Mexicano at North Narrabeen offers delicious street-style fare, with favourites such as grilled corn, tacos, and some of the best guacamole in town. Plus, there's a large cocktail list and all the tequila you could ever need—all sans gluten.  

Tre Viet | Newtown

Offering a loyal gluten-free menu, this Newtown eatery has garnered a cult-like following. With a vast traditional Vietnamese menu, there's plenty to choose from, including large vermicelli bowls, spicy stir-fries and succulent proteins.

Nourishing Quarter | Redfern

A Redfern institution, Nourishing Quarter has the gluten intolerants covered with favourites such as buckwheat noodles, Vietnamese rolls and plenty of quinoa. The menu is entirely vegetarian, with wholesome options of which many are gluten-free. Plus, it's BYO. Check with the knowledgeable staff for any queries.

Muum Maam | Surry Hills

Forget having to choose from one or two gluten-free dishes, at Muum Maam you'll be spoilt for choice. Serving up authentic Thai in the heart of Surry Hills, the seasonal menu will no doubt tantalise your taste buds—think banana blossom salad, turmeric grilled spatchcock and sticky black rice.

Raw Bar | Bondi Beach

With sweeping views of Bondi Beach this traditional Japanese restaurant provides a fine dining experience that's wholly gluten free. Opt for the bento box or kingfish sashimi; you'll be licking your lips in delight.

Paper Planes | Bondi Beach (now closed)

Inspired by the colour and energy of Japanese Pop Culture, this sushi and sake restaurant offers a vast mix of gluten-free dinner options. We suggest the shitake mushroom lettuce cups, pan-fried barramundi fillet and the Wakame and tofu salad—all delicious.
