Tatler Says

Aliyaa continues to wow and serve great dishes. From an assorted array of light bite appetisers to a full assemblage of tasting sets, this popular Bukit Damansara restaurant has you covered when it comes to running the gamut of Sri Lankan cuisine. While Amma's Crab is a firm favourite, we also enjoyed the fish cutlets and the Flaming Appam is a sweet ending to a lovely night. Another good choice is the award-winning Wattalapam Dessert, a delectable Sri Lankan pudding crafted from coconut, brown palm sugar, eggs and spices such as cinnamon and cardamom. It's heaven in every bite. Service was delightful and the wait staff were pleasant, attentive and very helpful, whether it was with regards to dish recommendations or food pairings from the menu. Come with an empty stomach and prepare for an enjoyable night of balanced flavours and textures. 


Aliyaa's Signature Crab Curry was first introduced during the restaurant's inception over 14 years ago, and has been a menu staple since. Its most popular variation, Amma's Style Curry, is a recipe from Dr Paravathy Kanthasamy, the mother of founder Abbi Kanthasamy. 


Advanced bookings are recommended as the restaurant can get very busy, even on weekday nights.
