The name Aliyaa has become synonymous with quality Sri Lankan food in KL. From fiery crabs and fluffy appams to flaky rotti, this colourful cuisine has been championed here and continues to draw foodies from all around the Klang Valley. It’s a rarity to find Sri Lankan cuisine in the city, let alone of this calibre.
Joining MIGF for a third consecutive year, Aliyaa is set to once again brighten up the Festival with a dash of spice, bringing unique and exotic flavours from the Pearl of the Indian Ocean. Situated in Plaza Damansara, it’s not hard to miss this culinary jewel, which is fronted by two stone elephants standing guard at the steps leading to the entrance. As the mascot of the restaurant, elephants are ubiquitous here, appearing on the quirky place mats and throughout the premises.
The interior also doubles as a gallery, with vibrant stills from around the world hanging on the whitewashed walls. Taken by Abethan Kanthasamy, the wildlife images in particular are arresting - and also for sale if one so happens to grab you. Make sure to check out the ‘exhibition’ while you wait for your food because when it does arrive, you’ll be 100% focused on the spread in front of you.
