Beautiful meal, lots of flavours and plenty of dishes to choose from. Service was a little bit slow but still very friendly. Would highly recommend for the food.

Great vegan options. Of note was the Kotthu roti and the coconut sambal. The drinks lists looked pretty promising. Look forward to returning.

Outstanding service and food. It is on the pricey side. Only negative comment: The male toilet can be improved - the toilet seat does not stand up, it keeps falling down...

About Araliya

Spicing up St Kilda Within the white walls of Araliya on Fitzroy Street in St Kilda there is some serious spice going on. Chef Sam Wedande, who was trained in hotel management and cookery in Sri Lanka, melds traditional Sri Lankan cooking and French technique, using Sri Lankan herbs and spices to create unique dishes such as wagyu brisket with cardamom and kithul palm sap; and duck confit in a roast-fennel curry. With Wedande’s wife, Dee, running the restaurant floor, Araliya is a true Sri Lankan showcase where food prevails and conversation follows. Be part of that conversation. Best dish: baked crab - fresh crabmeat cooked with green chilli and cheese, baked in the shell to a golden brown served with a ragi (Kurrukkan flour) roti bread.
