The place has its own spirit, with old furniture and some rarities. The menu is interesting having some soviet-era dishes. The food is tasty and not expensive.

Although you enter the cafe down very steep steps in a less than welcoming area [not dangerous] because of the state of surrounding buildings the interior is very soviet private residence style. Good food and good music, some interesting characters!

Bufet is the only underground style bar - restaurant i've seen in Nizhniy. The beer is cheap, and the vodka too. The food is like pub food, nothing fancy but good. The place is really random, you can have techno music one day and classical the next, the decoration is veru eclectic. It's a relaxing, cool place.
