Aliyaa is one of the popular restaurant for Sri Lankan food. I tried their food at their Ipoh Branch and I was very satisfied with their food and service too. Therefore, I brought my friend to have dinner at their Plaza Damansara Branch, Petaling Jaya. They serve Sri Lankan food, totally opposite to North Indian and South Indian Cuisine. It was empty when we arrived at 6pm but most of the table at downstairs is reserved for dinner. So we find our own place to sit at the upstairs. The ambiance of the restaurant was cozy and comfortable. We ordered Appam, Kulaiyal Chicken, String Hopper Seafood and Ginger Spice Tea.
String Hopper Seafood was yummy too. They have 4 types of choices for some of the dishes and while some have 3 choices like Chicken, Seafood, Fish and Vegetarian. You can choose your own ingredient for the dish. According to the staff, String Hopper is good to have with seafood and he is definitely right. It tasted so good.

Kulaiyal Chicken is baked to perfection in Banana Leaf. It releases an intoxicating aroma that is hard to resist. It was cooked with spices and it has a good spicy kick in it. Yummy!! Favorite dish among all of us.

It tasted delicious. The chicken curry has a spicy taste that perfectly off set the rich coconut milk taste from the rice. The chicken is tender, juicy and well flavored with the spices.
Appam was perfect to end our meal. Not too sweet and the same time not too plain. Tasty!!It was a super duper dinner for us. Everything was good from the food to the service. I am glad that my friend loved it. She even planned to bring her family for dinner on Mothers Day. After dinner, the staff gave us a card to register for member that enables us to get a 10% rebate from the bill from next visit onwards and it will be credited to the card. Moreover, the member can get 20% off from the bill during her birthday month and you just have to give your phone number to check your member status. So good right!! No need to carry the card every time you dine-in at the restaurant.
