I think this is one of the best noodle places in Nizhny, but you've got to know what to order. Add coconut sauceto your meal!

This is a fun little place on the walking street that serves great noodles with outdoor seating in the summer. Don't forget to order the waffles for dessert.

This place is a great little restaurant and very reasonable. The noodles are great but the waffle dessert is even better.

Very conveniently located on the main drag, we were very glad of somewhere to refuel at a reasonable price after all (or what felt like all) of Nizhniy's many hills and staircases.

The large chalkboard behind the bar detailing what's on offer is a bit bewildering at first glance; it vaguely resembles a the family tree of some long-forgotten dynasty or the table for the knock-out stages of a football or rugby tournament. In actual fact it is straightforward enough. At the time we visited, there was the choice of five different kinds of noodle, or you can opt for the rice, then there's difference meats or vegetables, then different kinds of sauces. Basically, it's mix-and-match as you see fit. Alternatively, there's a variety of soups.

Can't actually remember what I had at this point, but I do recall portions being very generous. As one would hope and expect, chopsticks are available for those who want them, likewise knives and forks for those who don't.

As other reviewers have commented, there's definitely a hipster feel. If Wes Anderson had decided to open a noodle bar somewhere in the middle of Russia, it might look something like this. The decor may not be to everyone's taste, but it's clear that someone put a good time and thought into it, and was also clearly having fun!
