We really enjoyed a culinary journey into Sri Lankan food. We tried the degustation 6 course menu. Highlights were the pork and lamb curry and the coconut pancake dessert with cinnamon ice cream. The service was personalised and authentic. Atmosphere was nice and relaxed and perfect for a date night to have a good conversation. We left with very full bellies and happy with the overall experience.
The food is beautiful and the service is excellent. Highly recommended.
I have eaten here several times and the food is delicious. The menu has great variety and contains beautiful flavours. Highly recommend for small or large groups.
Great food, friendly service, and a nice vibe. I don't understand how this place can be so quiet when the restaurants surrounding are busy / hard to book into.
The service was fantastic and the food as well .
We had a very pleasant dining experience with the hostess very polite, attentive and professional. Most of our group had not eaten Sri Lankan cuisine before and really enjoyed it. Will certainly recommend to friends and colleagues in the future.
Impeccable service, knowledgeable staff & perfectly balanced dishes
A bit noisy and when you sit near the door, it is quite drafty when people go in and out of the door.
Good quality food
Enjoyed the main meals. Attentive service
Cosy place for great food!
Lovely and delicious food and staff
This is fine dining indeed. Associated with fine dining comes small portions. Expensive, but, delicious. You have to try every single hopper. It is fab for vegetarians and so many things are made with potato flour, so gluten free peeps can rejoice! Probably wouldn't come without the discount offered by The Fork.
Really good Sri Lankan curries that go very well with string hoppers. Love it.
Would recommend the coriander crusted fish, it was the dish of the night.
Absolutely delicious food and cocktail! Super friendly and attentive service. Highly recommend :)
The service and the lamb curry were perfect!
Food was excellent, definitely a notch above. Would highly recommend.
Lovely restaurant with professional servers and exquisite food. We have great pork curry and lentils and saffron prawn. Dessert with sweet potato is delicious too. Highly recommended.
Absolutely delicious modern Sri Lankan food - hoppers are beautifully thin, crisp and authentic.

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.
