    We enjoy going to Jujube. It's near our home, the food is very good and it's nice place to take visitors. We went Wednesday night with our son and 2 visiting friends from Italy. Duck 2 Ways has been and continues to be a favorite. The addition of Pork 3 Ways on the menu is going to make choosing harder than ever! It is delicious. Wednesday was half price dumpling night. I never get enough of them. The waiters are always friendly and helpful. There are lots of great places to eat in Chapel Hill and Jujube is one of them .

    My friend and I enjoyed a delicious three appetizer dinner, with Geisha martini's that were perfect. The varied tastes and textures of the appetizers were delightful and the perfect amount for a light dinner! The waitress was friendly but not intrusive. The noise level was a bit loud, however, and the seat, while inside, was heated regularly by the door nearby opening up and letting in hot, humid summer air. Every meal I have had at Jujube's has been fabulous!

    Don't know if it was the number of large groups or what but entrees were almost an hour in coming from the time of being seated. Fortunately we were not in a hurry but that seems a longer than normal time for a party of two. The meal was very good as usual, just took a while.

    We had a bunch of small plates to start. Very delicious. Only complaint is that some of the dishes were a little too salty--eg. the mayo with the shrimp tempura. Inventive entrees. Lives up to its name of Almost Asian-creative fusion cuisine. Nice wine selection

    My fiancee and I recently started practicing weekday vegetarianism (not a real thing -- we just don't eat meat on weekdays). We've been to Jujube many times, and we always love it. But we've really started to appreciate their veggie options. On this visit, we had the spring rolls with peanut sauce (amazing), the bibb salad (amazing), the mushroom dumplings (really great), and the tofu fake-chicken stir fry (good). This place never disappoints. We'll be back soon!

    Let me start by saying this was my third time here and the other visits were alright. The special was NC flounder . After ordering we were told that there was only one portion left, would be mind Wahoo for the other dish. When the entrée came the Wahoo was raw I discovered after eating some or it. So I ordered something else. In the mean time my wife couldn't eat her flounder because it got cold waiting for my replacement entrée and because she lost her appetite after seeing my fish entrée. When the bill came we were only charged for one entrée but the evening was shot. In retrospect we should have left without ordering the replacement entrée. The check was still over $60 with tip. Too much for a ruined evening out.

    We are Jujube regulars, and always have a good time here--great vegetarian food, prepared with just as much care and imagination as the meat dishes. The food looks beautiful, as does the lovely intimate interior space. You can hear your friends talking across the table. The wait staff are cheerful, knowledgeable, accommodating. The outdoor area could do with some more congenial landscaping--currently it just looks like a side alley with a few plants and some draped mosquito screening.

    The service was a little erratic especially for a weeknight. I enjoyed seeing the Weizenbier from the bottle foaming right over the top of the glass. A quick learner our server she let me pour the next one and watched. I explained how it should be done and we had quite an amusing conversation. I enjoyed a nicely cooked pork chop but the trimmings were much to be desired. The latkes potato cake was soggy and uninspiring. Good vegetable rolls but could do with a bit more leafy herbs (Thai basil grows well here in CH). Crack cake liked by all. Take time and good humour and this is a good place to eat.

    Hadn't been here for a while...it's pricey, but not that bad, great for something special, and there were 5 of us. And the food is even more delicious than I remembered. Particularly, I can recommend the incredible callimari appetizer...perfectly, I mean PERFECTLY, fried....not overly coated, great combo of rings and tentacles, not greasy, nicely spiced.....also discovered because of them the best tasting US made hard cider (love English ciders) I've found yet, Original Sin...thanks, fellas...oh, and did I mention everything else tasted great as well?...

    I've been to Jujube many times, and I love it. The food is always amazing. We ordered three dishes we had never tried before, and they were all phenomenal. When it comes to the menu, you just can't go wrong here. The service, on the other hand, has always been a little so-so. Sometimes the servers are hard to track down. This was a slow night, and our server was around, but sort of corny and overly-scripted -- it was a little like talking to a server at Cracker Barrel, sort of hoakey and obviously rehearsed. It was a small distraction, though. The other downside is that Jujube is a little overpriced--the check is always about $20 more than what it probably should given the other options in the area. But my fiancee loves the place, so...

    Dined on 6/30/2014
    When one says Asian Fusion, you know it's not going to be traditional, but you don't know what to expect until you get it. The meal at Jujube was a culinary adventure and it was exquisite. We started off with the seasonal mango salad, the pork dumplings, and the bibb salad with goat cheese. The presentation was on point and honestly, there was not one of these dishes that was better than the other. Each was distinctive, well balanced in flavors, and textured perfectly. For the main course, we ordered the Lemongrass Hanger Steak and the Duck. This was hands down some of the best food I have had in a long time.

    I have been to Jujube many times and have many different things to eat off of the menu. The times that I don't order the Lemongrass Beef Salad are more rare because it is so delicious that I can't stay away from it! Truly the other food items are wonderful too, but make sure someone at your table orders the lemongrass if you choose not to!

    We had an incredible first meal at Jujube on Wednesday. My bf and I have a special place in our hearts for dumplings and they did not disappoint! Great texture of the dough and lots of filling. Then the salad! Hearts of romaine with bacon, pears, and a spicy dressing. It hit every note: salty, sweet, crunchy, spicy, creamy. Loved it! Boyfriend has the pork chop which was juicy and yummy but I thought my duck two ways was even better. We ran out of room and time for dessert but their trio of sorbets (one was strawberry basil!) sounded delish. We can't wait to return! Being in the service industry myself I can be a bit critical, but this was easily one of the best meals I've had in the Triangle. Oh! If they have the yuzu drink, get it!

    We've been dining at Jujube since it opened several years ago and can say with assurance that it is one of the most unique and pleasant Asian restaurants you will find for those who seek quality food and an adult atmosphere (although we frequently see people there with young children). We've gotten to know some of the servers quite well and they understand how to make for a pleasant dining experience. I keep using the word "pleasant" because that's what they seem to be aiming for and they've achieved it. Occasionally they will remove/replace one of our favorite dishes but there's almost always something else that's equally as interesting. You can get spicy or not.
