A top chef has won fans on social media after he had an angry rant about customers' awkward demands.

Patrick Friesen, head chef at the Queen Chow restaurant in Sydney, posted a photograph on Instagram showing tickets for several tables during a service.

All of them had notes on warning of allergies to gluten or shellfish.

On one table with eight diners, seven are visible on the ticket and all of them claim to have an allergy.

At the same time on another table with two diners, every dish ordered had an allergy warning next to it.

Potentially some sort of allergy society might have been having a get-together.

But Friesen reckons people are becoming fussy eaters and making life difficult for diners who do actually have allergies.

He said: "Can people with dietary requirements start knowing what you can and can’t eat?

"Shellfish allergy but loves oyster sauce. Gluten free but loves gluten as long as it’s not a piece of bread.

"Vegetarians that love a chicken wing. Pescatarians who eat chicken.

"Sort your s--- out and let your waiter know. You make it really damn hard for people with actual allergies and dietaries to go out to eat."

One Instagram user with allergies was grateful to Patrick for calling the diners out, commenting: "Thank you so much for saying this.

"As someone with severe food allergies, I have to do a lot of pre-investigation work before going to a restaurant so I can find something with no/little allergens of mine so I can make it easy for the waitstaff because I know so many people who do this s--- all the time."

Another said: "Thank you so much for posting this. As a person with Celiac Disease, dining out is quite difficult.

"Not only are these people making the kitchens' job more difficult, they are confusing waitstaff which could in turn put someone's health and safety at risk."

One parent wrote: "Excellent post. My son has a rare chicken allergy (along with a long list of other food allergies) and most restaurants are amazing and believe us.

"Thanks to jerks that lie people hesitate to believe us. Even his allergist was skeptical until his scratch test results.

"The chicken blew up his entire back, the test was no good and we almost had to use an epi pen over a tiny scratch. Thank you for your post."
