From an array of piquant sambols to their signature lamprais to their ultimate crab curry, Aliyaa has it all. Better yet, they have beers on tap, an enviable liquor and wine list as well as delicious cocktails. Hit them up for some seriously spicy sensations this Valentines Day!

They’re also having a Jaffna Food Festival next week for all those who want an authentic take on food from the motherland.

A North Indian restaurant that takes its inspiration from flowers, Frangipaani is probably most known for their impeccable service and hip atmosphere. This Valentines, the good people behind the restaurant have curated a beautiful set menu for two with some eclectic choices like lobster tandoor glazed with parmesan cheese. We hear that their cocktails are to die for as well!
