The Best Vegetarian Restaurants in Sydney

No meat, no worries

Alibi Bar and Dining

The meat-free movement is alive and well in Sydney and it's not just vegetarian joints serving up delicious plant-based fare. There are plenty of eateries offering meatless menus, or at the very least, a solid range of plant-based plates that don’t fall under ‘salads and sides.’

What’s more, going green no longer means splashing a ton of cash every time you eat out. Thanks to the growing demand for meat-free meals, there are plenty of places dishing up delicious veggie delights for all budgets. From nachos and bean burgers to stir-fries and fine dining, here's where to fill up on virtuous vegetarian fare at the best vegetarian restaurants in Sydney.


Yellow’s 100% vegetarian menu focuses on treating vegetables with the same consideration as protein – demonstrating their versatility without sacrificing on flavour. Offering both vegan and vegetarian tasting menus and à la carte options, you’ll be treated to creations that will blow your mind. Trust us, you'll be rolling out! 

57 Macleay Street, Potts Point

Bad Hombres 

Veggie friends, never wonder where your next Mexican feast is coming from ever again. For those not in the know, Bad Hombres is a plant-based Mexican eatery with a pretty big fan base! One bite of their miso eggplant tacos is all you need to know you're in good hands. The whole menu is at your disposal (it's actually 100% vegan) so be sure to bring a few friends and sample as much as you can. The drinks menu also deserves to be applauded with natural wines and tequila and mezcal cocktails making up the majority of the offering. 

40 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills 


Alibi Bar & Dining 

Fancy an elevated night out where all the vegans in the gang can order whatever they like from the menu? Enter Alibi Bar & Dining. Housed in the historic finger wharf in Woolloomooloo, Alibi has created an indoor-alfresco space brimming with charm. But it's the food that will really blow you away. They have recently revamped their Mediterranean-inspired menu and you can expect hearty dishes like lasagne and meatballs, all the way through to incredible share plates, salads and sides. DO trust the waiters who have excellent suggestions and DON'T leave without trying the Quince Filled Doughnuts. 

Ovolo Woolloomooloo, 6 Cowper Wharf 



After landing on the South Coast, Pilgrims has made its way to Cronulla’s sandy shores. This well-priced, all-vegetarian café serves breakfast and lunch daily, plus a Mexican-themed dinner on Friday and Saturday nights: think nachos, tacos, quesadillas and burrito bowls. If you’re there during the day, order a wholemeal toastie or the Bliss Burger – it’s legendary.

97 Gerrale Street, Cronulla

Pizza Madre

Pizza Madre 

From the good, erm, chaps who brought us Two Chaps, comes this vegetarian pizza haven. Pizza Madre's loyal following is all the reason you need to pop by for a visit but if you need further proof consider the fact that they've scored a spot in the top 50 pizzas in the Asia Pacific from 2023 to 2024. It's all about elevated meat-free ingredients - nothing basic here. Think ingredients like truffle cream, confit garlic, fried baby kale, capers and Brussel sprouts - all layered atop their delish 72-hour fermented sourdough bases.  The drinks selection is also killer with natural wines, house-made cocktails and craft beers aplenty. 

205 Victoria Road, Marrickville 

Bootleg Italian 

If a plant-based Italian feast is what you're after, swing by Bootleg Italian. Everything about this Paddington restaurant is indulgent from the velvet chairs to the house-made pasta and dough balls doused in garlic butter. You'll also find an impeccable cocktail list, natural wines and craft beers. If you know what's good for you you'll book a spot in the sunny courtyard for arancini and sundowners followed by a bowl of Bootleg's famous vodka rigatoni. 

312 Oxford Street, Paddington 



If you fancy your vegetarian dishes with a glass of rosé, then make a direct line to Yulli’s. Gluten-free and vegan options are available in an eclectic but surprisingly harmonious melange of Asian, Moroccan and Mexican styles. The four-course banquet menu is perfect if you need a little guidance. They also serve their very own brews.

Sitchu Tip: Pop by their Alexandria brewery for a full tasting and vegetarian bar snacks next time you're looking for a dog-friendly day out. 

417 Crown Street, Surry Hills

Gigi Pizzeria

Gigi Pizzeria

Controversially going vegan in 2015, Gigi Pizzeria buck the trend and have maintained their impeccable reputation despite a lack of cheese. Kick things off with the crocchettes di patate and an AVPN (Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana) approved Cavolo with cauliflower puree, artichokes, pinenuts, capers, currants, garlic and parsley.

379 King Street, Newtown


Renowned among the foodie circuit for its contemporary take on traditional Lebanese cuisine, Nour is a Lebanese restaurant, but not as you know it. A thoughtful yet creative menu, for meat-free diners you cannot go past their halloumi or falafel dishes. 

Shop 3, 490 Crown Street, Surry Hills

Two Chaps

Two Chaps

Effortlessly cool, this Marrickville institution takes a sustainable approach to every aspect of its operation. Fresh handmade pasta is a strong point of the Friday and Saturday set menu, while the lunch menu makes a strong case for the smoked eggplant brioche burger. 

122 Chapel Street, Marrickville



At this award-winning restaurant, the food and prices are the same you'll find served from the street carts of Kuala Lumpur. You may have to wait in line, but don’t worry – it moves quickly. Once you’re in, order the crispy yet fluffy roti canai, and chase it up with kari sayur, a vegetarian curry with lentils, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes and eggplant.

Chinatown Sydney, Haymarket and Chatswood



INDU has established itself as a firm favourite for its innovative southern Indian cuisine. They are all about bringing an authentic dining experience to diners. The menu is littered with delicious vegetarian dishes - our suggestion is to head straight for the devilled chickpea and cashew with Kashmiri chilli pepper and makrut lime leaf. 

350 George Street, Sydney
