Get in early for Nikita’s goat dish. His restaurant goes through herds, or rather, hoards of them. No wonder Unley diners emerging from this Greek eatery look so satisfied. Nikita Manousakis has been feeding his honest and flavoursome fare since emigrating from Rhodes forty years ago. His proudly family-owned business has moved numerous times and now rests in Unley.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The aromas of tender oven-baked baby goat, sizzling in its juices and sprinkled with fresh herbs will have your tummy rumbling louder than Zeus, the Greek God of thunder. Nikita’s loyal customers feel he is the God of Greek cuisine in Adelaide – and nowadays, the grandfather.

Now in his seventies, Nikita Manousakis has been feeding us his honest and flavoursome fare since emigrating from Rhodes forty years ago. His proudly family-owned business has moved numerous times and now rests in Unley. Son Tony, famed for his traditional Greek cakes, chuckles “wherever we go, our community tracks us down. We’ve seen people come in as kids, and now we’re feeding their kids!” The family at Nikita’s are insistent on serving their dishes at thier best. “You may wait a while for your dishes,” says Tony “but that’s because we cook everything in that moment, I assure you! We don’t want to rush you, or our food.” He’s a man to believe, and his wife Tatyana, an interior designer, is responsible for the décor’s tasteful mix of trend and tranquillity.

Corporate diners are encouraged to stay long after they seel the deal, while friends, families and foodies relax before enjoying a feast of fantastic food, and with Nikita’s menu, its not hard to do. After rounding up that goat, leave room at your table for the likes of juicy grilled lamb chops, sausages aromatic with tomato and capsicum, or sizzling steak with onions and moreish fetta. Village-style dishes include snapper cutlets sauced with garlic and lemon, and horiatiko moraitiko - diced beef and lamb folded into pastry with cheese. Pan-fried veal livers are robust with flavours and served with a piquant vinegar sauce, making an ideal side. Seafood is mandatory. Perfecty plump skewered prawns, butter-soft calamari, whole fried barramundi and smoky, char-grilled octopi will have your senses in raptures. Finally, Tony’s Greek cakes and baklava end the evening in heavenly sweet flavours.

Nikita’s Greek Restaurant serves a feast worthy of a godly appetite. Dishes of bountiful, fresh ingredients infused with herbs leave wide smiles on all faces reading ‘Nikita, thankyou!’

Nikita's Greek Restaurant - User Reviews

lorraine:

Long wait for food, only one entree arrived at table, placed in middle of table as they assumed we were sharing, asked about other entree and was assured was coming soon. Was about to cancel entree after another wait when that entree did arrive, was veal liver in balsamic, tough as old boot and inedible/overcooked, told liver takes a long time to cook. That entre plate removed and mains placed on table immediately. No rice with mains prawns only chips and salad, supposed to be rice, potatoes and salad with prawns. Not good first experience, timing all wrong!review  08/10/2012
