buku located in the heart of Downtown Raleigh on Wilmington Street is a favorite local restaurant telling a global story! Working within different regional traditions our menu brings together complex and flavorful dishes. Foods like Polish pierogis, Colombian arepas and Thai barbecue can be founds on street corners in their originating countries. We strive to convey the immediate thrill a traveler feels eating foods like these first hand and right off the cart!

buku is an international slang twist on the phrase "Merci, Beaucoup" meaning of "thank you very much" and we would welcome the opportunity to show you the vast array of unique and distinct flavors and present them authentically!  We are open for lunch and dinner so come dine with us!
