Black pork curry and the pork belly were both fantastic. The fish wasn't as fresh as I would like it to be but the coriander/lime sauce accompanied it really well. AMAZING HOPPER!

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.

Surprisingly authentic food with personable service! Portions are small, but food is delicious with complex flavours. No two dishes are alike - definitely recommended for anyone who wants to try /real/ Sri Lankan food that's not overwhelmingly spicy!

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

We ordered a few entrees as recommended by the waitress and they were good. Had calamari and prawns, and lamb curry for mains. Calamari and prawns was delicious but lamb curry was average. Good atmosphere, but got quite noisy later in the evening when it got busier. Great opportunity to try Sri Lankan food with TheFork festival discount.

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.
