Araliya is a blend of traditional Sri Lankan spices fused with taste sensations from around the world. It really is a bit of this and a bit of that with a few of Sam's secrets thrown in; a recipe that has worked for the last 19 years, and keeps getting stronger. Dining at this Hawthorn restaurant is a unique and memorable experience where food prevails and conversation follows.

LOCATION
Hawthorne

DESCRIPTION
The common misconception of South East Asian cuisine is that the hotter is definitely the better, but when you walk into ARALIYA leave all those thoughts at the door and gear yourself for an experience you won’t forget. Established for over 23 years, it is of no surprise that ARALIYA is one of Hawthorn’s treasures. From the moment you enter, the subtle aroma of cinnamon lingers in the air and you are taken into a place where time ceases. The interior modern, yet warm, enhances the cosiness and you will realise that this is no ordinary eatery.

With a surprising blend of spices, Head chef Sriyan has perfected the definition of fusion that you won’t comprehend where the west ends and east begins. Mt Leura Lamb Shanks with Roasted Cummin and Dates is the ideal meal for a cold wintery night or try the Jaggery Beef so tender that melts in your mouth. The varied seasonal vegetables ARALIYA is famous for, from twice cooked eggplant with dates to the unconventional shredded Brussels Sprouts with coconut and mustard seeds, no vegetarian or Coeliac will miss out. Halal friendly and meat dishes are Halal certified. Like most fine dining restaurants, ARALIYA is wine-centric with an inspired wine list that flawlessly matches the food, it is reasonably price and extensive in range. If authentic Sri Lankan food is what you are after, ARALIYA also provides a Sri Lankan Food @ the communal table or enjoy the same at your Dining Table with their take home dinner Menu.
