Buko nero, perhaps means "black hole" as it is a small place, but far cry from "hole in the wall". The decor is a study in black with knick knacks and modern furniture. Oscar cooks and Tracy serves and must clean up too. The couple...More

The food is decently priced (except for the desserts, which were expensive) and the ambience was lovely. Service was exquisite. However, I just don't think it's worth queuing and making a booking months in advance.

Been ages since I've been to Buko Nero so decided to head there on a whim. Was such a good idea coz the food was delish and it still retains that cosy, intimate vibe. Will not wait long to visit again.

Well thought-out Valentine's Day menu! Thanks to Oscar for adding a really flavourful ravioli dish on a busy night and to Tracy for the wonderfully warm service! Amazing to see the passion after all these years, truly fine dining at home!

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
