Cheap Eats on the Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is easily one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations, but unless you know where to look, you can end up paying for some pretty expensive meals up here. If you love the Gold Coast and like your food delicious and inexpensive, check out the following awesome Gold Coast options, and save your money for those awesome Surfers Paradise resorts instead. You may even be able to extend your holiday a little longer.

Currumbin RSL, Currumbin

The restaurant here offers a mix of modern Australian and international food, and is easily one of your best options on the Gold Coast for having a tasty meal that won’t cost you a fortune. Open until at least midnight seven days a week, the Currumbin RSL is family friendly, offers spectacular water views and serves brunch, lunch and dinner every day of the week. For the price, you simply won’t find a better option on the entire Gold Coast strip.

Nicolinis, Surfers Paradise

If it is pizza you are in the mood for, Nicolinis will more than satisfy you, as apart from being fantastic value for money, this may well be the best pizza you have eaten in quite some time.

Chiangmai Thai Restaurant, Surfers Paradise

If you like Thai food, you are going to love this place, and at such affordable prices you will be able to eat here more than a few times while you are in the area. Whether you are looking for a place for a family dinner, or a romantic date night with your partner, Chiangmai is decorated superbly to create an authentic Thai feel, and there is no questioning that the food here is the real deal too. If you are sick and tired of paying for overpriced food on the Gold Coast, head to this wonderful establishment and you are sure to find yourself coming back for more.

Indian Hut, Burleigh Heads

Serving both Asian and Indian food, this place is easily one of the best value dining options on the Gold Coast. The food is cheap, delicious and definitely authentic, and the naan bread is worth the trip all on its own, so whether you eat in or take your delicious dinner away to your plush Gold Coast accommodation, don’t leave the Gold Coast until you have been to the Indian Hut.

Easy House, Mermaid Waters

If you are vegetarian and have a hankering for some yum cha, this awesome place will have your taste buds in for something special, without doing much damage to your wallet. The food is predominantly Chinese and absolutely delicious, and while it is always great value, Thursday lunch offers an even better deal with 25 per cent off everything.

Govindas, Burleigh Heads

For some of the tastiest Indian food you will ever eat, at a price you will hardly even believe, this Hare Krishna owned-and-run restaurant is just the answer for lunch or dinner, regardless of your budget.

Even though the Gold Coast is all things stylish, ritzy and beautiful, not everything here costs a fortune.
