You are always greeted like a well thought of friend. The restaurant is spotless and well organized. I love their dinner special, always choosing the teriyaki salmon and cucumber salad. The portions are perfect. Have the green tea ice cream, very refreshing.

Went to Buko looking for basic Japanese food: some sushi, tempura, teriyaki, etc. We were not disappointed. The combination platters give you a lot of food at reasonable prices. Very prettily plated. I had the nabeyaki udon, which was good but just a little salty....More

Buko is a fine little Japanese restaurant in East Glendale. They have many of the menu items typical of the Japanese restaurants in the San Fernando Valley (and probably So. Cal. in general). The place is clean and the restrooms were, as well. The food...More
