Description: Explore the rich, delicious, sinfully decadent and completely authentic Sri Lankan cuisine at A LI YAA Restaurant and Bar. Nestled in the heart of Damansara this restaurant boasts a cool, relaxed and unassuming environment, a stark contrast to the vivid, adventurous and bold foods that fill the menu. Make sure you try their signature crab dish, that put them on the map and that will leave you craving more. Catering to Malay, Chinese, Indian and European palates, A LI YAA is a home away from home for local Sri Lankans and for foreigners, a wonderful insight into the Pearl of the Indian Ocean.

Had a pleasant and enjoyable experience at the restaurant. Kaiyum, took care of us really well. He explained the dishes, recommended Anna’s eggplant salad (genius dish, love it so much) and very attentive thruout our time there. Food was gloriously flavored with perfect blend of spices.
