Gluten free fish and chips in Camberwell – Kings & Queens

Gluten free fish and chips in Camberwell, Melbourne 

Kings & Queens is no ordinary fish and chip shop, both in the appearance of the shop and the quality of the food.  Add to that the fact that the menu is 95% gluten free and we are onto a winner!

This family run business has been open since mid 2017 and they have been getting great reviews (see their Facebook page to see their five star rating). They make their food with love and want customers to feel like royalty when visiting.

Nov 2019 update – new owners have taken over and apparently are still committed to gluten free.

The shop itself has a luxe feel about it, with dark walls and one wall covered with framed pictures of famous people.  It is small, but there are a couple of bench style tables if you would like to eat in (with proper plates and cutlery).

The fish & chips

You have a choice of freshly caught fish which can be grilled or battered and all battered fish is gluten free.  The batter is light and fluffy and tastes great! The chips are always cooked well and you can switch to sweet potato chips for $2 extra.

The sides

The dim sims are also gluten free!  The potato cakes are the only non gluten free items, which have a separate fryer.

There is a display cabinet filled with the four or five salads that are are a great addition to your meal.  I regularly have ‘King Kale’ and ‘Prismatic Prince’ salads.  Don’t be put off by the kale if you are not into ‘superfoods’ – it goes extremely well with the sweet potato, pumpkin and pesto! The Prismatic Prince is a colourful medly of vegetables and is one of their best sellers.

Menu packs and specials

The menu has a sense of fun with ‘Royalty packs’ such as ‘Fit for a King’  or ‘Pearl Clutch’ – these are worth checking out as it can save you some money.  For example the ‘Pearl Clutch’ is your choice of fish and small chips and small salad for $18, which would cost $21 if ordered individually.  For coeliacs, note that the packs mostly contain potato cakes so are not gluten free.  Also look out for weekday lunch special offers in store.

Please note that the menu does not state gluten free options, so just state you are gluten free when ordering (and ask to keep your items separate if your party is having potato cakes).

When you take your box home, you unwrap it like a present. If you are eating off your lap in the car or taking it to the park, it also makes it a bit more sturdy than just being wrapped in paper.

For the coeliacs and vegetarians a lot of care is taken to prevent cross contamination.  They check labels for ‘may contain gluten’ statements and have fryers for:

  • gluten free vegetarian (e.g. chips)
  • gluten free red meat (e.g. dim sims)
  • gluten free fish (all fish)
  • non gluten free (potato cakes) The potato cakes are salted in a separate bowl and have separate coloured tongs to ensure they are kept separate from the gluten free items.
    (My burning question was why make everything gluten free except for these?   The answer was they haven’t found a good quality commercial potato cake and they haven’t got the time to make the quantity needed)

They also ensure there is no added sugar in the food.

If you live in the Boroondara area or are just passing through, having tasty gluten free fish and chips in Camberwell is such a treat – thank you Kings & Queens!  Make sure you phone ahead your order at busy times, particularly Friday night or you might be waiting over half an hour. If you want home delivery, Uber Eats is available to bring great fish and chips to your door!
