This is one of the better Vietnamese restaurant I've been to. I highly recommend the Seabass and the Banana flower salad. The taste is not overpowering. The portion is just right. I'll definitely come back .

Bui Bistro is a great place for authentic noodle dishes, my favorite is a bowl of rich broth, duck confit, mushroom and Chinese broccoli. Such subtly, layers upon layers of flavors in this incredible dish.

Be sure to start with Crispy Calamari, lightly breaded, flash fried crisp, yet the Calamari remains tender and succulent. Spicy aioli dipping sauce is a nice accompaniment.

Excellent wine list with well thought out selections to pair with spicy or flavorful dishes.

We are fans of Vietnamese food, and I discovered the Bui Bistro by accident when shopping for some post cards in Napa to send to our friends and relatives. After comparing this place to others, this one came out on top. Not the absolute best meal we ever had, but far from the worst. The litmus test for us is the spring rolls (not the fried kind), and they were excellent. We had the curried duck and sea bass for the mains, which were done very well. The wines available were very good, and reasonably priced for Napa. If you are in the mood for Vietnamese in Napa, this is the go-to place.

We had an excellent meal here. Vietnamese salad, Vietnamese crepe, spring rolls, and melt-in-your-mouth Chilean seabass cooked in clay pot. Service was excellent. The food was fresh and crunchy. Highly recommended!

Authentic Vietnamese food. We had seafood pho and duck soup as our entrees, both really good. For some reason, the restaurant had a variety of wines from all over, including Australia--a bit odd, given the place is in the heart of Ca wine country. I did order a glass of Napa produced wine, and it was actually very good. All in all, a good place, seemed very popular as well.
