went with a group early before the symphony and very happily surprised at the array of culinary delights at Buku. Note: since most are small plate/tapas type not ideal for sharing unless you order a large multiple of small plates. But that is the nature of small plate dining and diners typically know this. As for the taste - fuhgeddaboudit!! the flavors and combinations of flavors on each dish were exquisitely plated and delivered. I had the duck large plate on the recommendation of Justin our server which was INCREDIBLE. Presentation was also top shelf. I will go back to Buku multiple times just for this one dish alone!! Seriously! Everything server recommended was spot on -- definitely take his recommendations!! The whole place is well designed and a great feel to the restaurant. Will frequent it regularly and hopefully it is a place that will be around Raleigh downtown for a long long time. Some comments indicate pricy? didn't find it particularly over priced but adequate for the quality and service you are getting. Go there now!!
