    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.

    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.

    A bit noisy and when you sit near the door, it is quite drafty when people go in and out of the door.

    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.

    Absolutely delicious modern Sri Lankan food - hoppers are beautifully thin, crisp and authentic.

About the restaurant

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.
