You won't disappointed. Sometimes there is a wait as it can get very busy for a small location like this, but that should be an indicator of how good this place is

Four us of went to Bui last night and had the best food. Everything was fresh and the restaurant is spotless. It is BYOB, but they provide ice and wine glasses. The owner waited on us and made us feel so welcome. You must try it!

We arrived at 8:00pm. Unfortunately their fabulous summer rolls were sold out. Had both fried and steamed dumplings instead. The best pancake ever. Clean, attractive and very good service. If you like Vietnamese food, this is THE PLACE!
