BYO Brisbane Restaurants Near Me

If you're looking for the best BYO restaurants in Brisbane, look no further.

From sashimi, house-rolled dumplings and karaage chicken to authentic Greek and a fine dining degustation – these BYO restaurants are the perfect spots to crack open your favourite mid-week riesling, prized chardonnay, or that cellared cabernet you've been saving.

Here Are Four Of Brisbane's Best BYO Restaurants.

Sichuan Bang Bang

Sichuan Bang Bang

Sichuan Bang Bang in Kenmore heroes bold, traditional dishes from the Sichuan Province in China's southwest.

If you're a fan of heat, ask for your order to be made 'crazy hot' or 'Ma-la' (which is a spicy and numbing seasoning made from Sichuan peppercorn and chilli).

Try any (and all) of the house-rolled dumplings, there's a range of classic Sichuan dishes, and Sichuan Bang Bang also features signature dishes from other regions of China like Xinjiang Uyghur Da Pan Ji.

BYO is available each day except Tuesdays (as Sichuan Bang Bang is close). Corkage is $8 per bottle.

Lefkas Taverna

Lefkas Taverna

Lefkas Taverna offers a classic Greek dining experience. Eat your way through the à la carte menu or select one of the three banquet options ($42, $47 and $57 per person).

A range of meats and seafood are on the menu, along with yiayia's classics like moussaka and gemista me kima (outrageously delicious stuffed capsicums bursting with meat, rice and tomato).

BYO (wine only) is available each Wednesday and Thursday. Corkage is $8 per bottle.

Ichiban Sushi

Ichiban Sushi

Ichiban, which translates to 'number one' in Japanese, offers some of the finest sushi in Brisbane.

On the menu is sushi, sashimi and side dishes like karaage chicken, seaweed salad, gyoza, curries, bento, and noodles. All items on the menu are made with produce, seafood and meat that is ethically sourced.

BYO is available seven days a week. Corkage is $3 per person.

Deer Duck Bistro degustation

Deer Duck Bistro

Auchenflower's Deer Duck Bistro is a romance between French cuisine and modern Australian.

We recommend the five-course degustation – while the menu is seasonal, expect dishes like a lamb rump with green mango and coriander sauce, a four cheese caramelle pasta with a capsicum coulis three ways and marjoram butter sauce, braised beef short ribs, and desserts with lemon curd, lime meringue, native desert lime, mandarin gel and thyme shortbread.

BYO (wine only) is available Tuesday–Friday and for functions of 12 or more guests. BYO is unavailable on public holidays. Corkage is $20 per person (maximum one bottle per two people).
