October 7, 2007: Nila City II

Update, 31/12/2014: Nila City has been closed for a while now, replaced by a fancy fish and chip shop. The old Brunswick branch is defunct as well, but there's a Nila Restaurant trading in Coburg that is probably a related operation.

Here's another sample from the Nila menu: pizza roti ($7.95). This is a large roti bread, crisp on the bottom like a pizza base, topped with a chickpea and potato curry, fresh tomato and capsicum slices, and finely chopped steamed mixed veges (most likely sourced from McCain or Birds Eye). Evidently this isn't gourmet grade but it's a tasty and filling plateful - its charm lies in the fresh, flaky bread.

My one Nila grumble: in my three visits I have always asked for a lentil doughnut and they've never been available! Perhaps it's time they're stricken from the menu...?

  1. Nila in the city has become my fall back lunch spot. I am a sucker for masala dosa and they are hard to find in Melbourne. Cheap and cheerful, lousy ambience but I've never had a bad dosa.

  2. Glad it hits the spot for you, AOF! If you want a fall back for your fall back, I think Flora is close by and has dosai on the menu too. The ambience there is no better than at Nila. :-)
