Araliya – a restaurant bringing you modern Sri Lankan inspired food right in the heart of Kew Victoria.

This new restaurant is beautifully fitted out, with a stunning bar that serves a great selection of craft beers, local wines, wines from afar, and cocktails.

This is the perfect place to meet friends and relax over a cocktail or two and enjoy the amazing food menu. Whether you are looking for short eats or sharing plates – all that are synonymous with Araliya Hawthorn, it’s the same elegant, spice-tingling style of food on offer.

The kitchen is run by Sam Wedande and four chefs who were trained at Araliya Hawthorn. Throw in some of Sam’s secret recipes that have lasted for over 29 years and you will be coming back for more. Catering well for those who need to follow a coeliac diet and also a great selection of vegetarian dishes.

The desserts are too tempting to resist and the perfect way to end a perfect night!

Private functions can also be catered for, just let us know your budget and guest number and we will create a sensational event.
