‘Aliyaa’ means ‘Elephant’ in Sinhalese…

Opened since 2007 as one of the first authentic Sri Lankan restaurants in Malaysia, Aliyaa is also a pioneer in bringing Sri Lankan cuisine to the world.

Our menu is filled with soulful recipes that have been handed down from generations of mothers in Sri Lankan homes. We are renowned for savory crab curries and perfectly spiced tiger prawns, as well as fiery mutton bones, fluffy appams and decadent desserts to tie an unforgettable meal together. Our native Sri Lankan chefs have decades of experience serving the best flavours of Sri Lanka, and their ability to share Ceylon culture food experience with diners have earned Aliyaa numerous awards and accolades, including a place on Tatler’s Top 20 Restaurants in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

    Perfect Sri Lanka cuisine. Gentle staff and well made dishes. It’s on the pub street - one beer at any pub, come here for great dinner, comeback to a pub, sounds like a name of the night life here.Still, important thing is good food and you’ll get it here!

    Aliyaa has been on my list for the longest time, but circumstances always prevented me from visiting. Finally, I made it there, and while the food we ordered had were hit and miss , it was a mixed experience overall. We really wanted to try their famous claypot Lankan crab, but since it was lunchtime, we didn't want to get messy and dirty our hands. Perhaps next time we'll give it a shot.What we had :Fish cutlet Rm24 🌟 * This was my absolute favorite. It was incredibly tasty and packed with flavor. Each bite left me craving for more.Lankan crab cakes Rm24 🌟 The crab cakes were absolutely delicious . The sesame seed crust added a delightful crunch to each bite.Kuliyal lamb Rm40 * This was my first time trying kuliyal lamb, and while it wasn't as great as I had hoped, it was still an enjoyable dish.Chicken varuval Rm32 🤷🏻‍♀️ * The chicken varuval was tender and flavorful . However, considering the price, I've had better experiences elsewhere.Eggplant paal curry Rm20 🤷🏻‍♀️ * I personally didn't enjoy this dish at all. I was expecting it to be spicy and saucy unfortunately i didnt know what paal curry was. It tasted more like a dessert to me, which wasn't what I was looking for.Total : Rm162

    Welcoming: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Atmosphere: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Customer service: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Food: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ + 0.5 Beverage: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Value for Money: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ease of parking: ⭐️ Revisit: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️My first ever try of Sri Lanka food. This is really out of expectation, but at the good site. I don’t expect such a good quality of the food prior coming here, but i really like it. It is kind of spicy for every foods, but the spicy level is something normal people can take in.The only thing i don’t like is the chicken, taste normal, and the chicken breast is really kind of hard. But again, will absolutely revisit, and recommend everyone to try.Their servant is really welcoming, and i like their quality, they know what they are serving, and they explained each food for you well.

    Great place to have Sri Lankan cuisine. Love the ambience.Service was great. Price was expensive given the location. Waiter can be a little pushy.Just know what you want and can eat.

    Food: Great. I recommend the crab curry. Fish, okra, rice and bread are also nice. Can't really taste the dhal. Overall presentation is nice. Drinks are ok. Desserts are interesting especially the flaming Apam. Price: Fine dining price Ambience: There're two floors. It's a nice ambience with creative elephant paintings. Parking: Roadside
