I eat here at least every couple of months. Love this place, the food is amazing.
Food was AMAZING! Service was friendly and punctual without hovering. Cocktails impeccable.
The food and drinks were great! The waiter answered all of our questions with ease, and made great recommendations. The spicy tuna bites were phenomenal as a starter, and he recommended the lollipop lamb chops and shaking beef for the entrees which were also great. The way the restaurant maneuvered in response to COVID was probably one of the best I have experience with no tap, only bottled water, contactless pay, and reservations/waiting period before entering the restaurant. I would definitely recommend and will be back!
Food and service are excellent. Brussel sprouts heavenly. Beef is amazing. Staff are considerate and efficient. They also have outdoor seating with heat lamps, which was comfortable on a high 50sF night. Cocktails are disappointing — tried two different ones and one (plum and gin) was bland, the other (chai) was undrinkably bad.
The food was so delicious and the staff was very friendly and seemed to have all hands workings. Plates were kind of small for the price but so fantastic in taste and design. Would def return.
The go-to spot for any occasion! Friends getting together, girls night, family outing etc. Juju always has 10/10 service and hospitality along with INCREDIBLE tapas. Impress everyone with your great taste in food by bringing them here!
Food was awesome, like always!! I have to say that of all the restaurants I’ve gone to since the pandemic, Juju is doing it the best and most organized to make diners feel very safe and comfortable!!! Kudos!!!
Love the food, service and the place. Very consistent.
Highly recommend it.
Everything was great! The food was delicious. Could have been a bit bigger in prtion size for the cost. However, it really was delicious. Service was great as well. No complaints really.
fabulous food, excellent service, memorable experience
We had a fantastic experience! From making the reservation, being greeted by the manager, service, food, all terrific! They have an abundance of outdoor seating and the weather cooperated.
We had the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts for apps, then the steak and grilled octopus for our mains.
We HIGHLY recommend this establishment and are telling all our friends about it!
We love Juju and have eaten there more than any other restaurant in Durham. Love sitting outside on the patio anytime but particularly great during Covid. I miss the fried chicken BUNS (not as good on the Bing bread IMO) and the old Sichuan chicken recipe. Will always keep coming back though!! Would love for Juju to keep a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc by the glass. The French is a bit too serious for me.
always a great and delicious experience! Eating outside is a favorite with us.
Everything was superb. Not one dish was “just OK.”
Never short on interesting and bold flavors!!!
waiter Christina was super nice and welcoming! had a great night!
Excellent service, amazing food and a small but sophisticated drink menu. This is our sixth time at JuJu's and we will continue to visit here.
Flavorful food! We loved Mongolian beef and green beans! Desserts were excellent, not overly sweet, you could taste the dessert itself and not only the sugar. A small dab of sour cream and a sprinkle of black salt were brightening the flavors of smooth pot de cream. Also, chocolate mousse was excellent, the crust crunchy and airy. My friend and I left our plates clean, it was so good!
Great food, nice ambiance, and the service was amazing. A bit pricey but was well worth it.
Great service from our waiting handling a food issue.
The restaurant was clean, the staff was super nice and the food rocked. It was an overall great experience.
Enjoyed our date night on the patio, everyone was spaced out and great vibe outside. Kate the GM stopped by the table and was extremely kind. We will be back!
Loved eating on the outdoor patio. The food was incredible. I took my parents here and they don't really eat Asian Fusion, but they absolutely loved everything. We shared everything and every dish was delicious.
Delicious food and excellent service on the patio. Will definitely return!
Best Brussels Sprouts around town. Best beef wontons ever! Love it! Omg, the blueberry tequila cocktail was amazing!
Kate (I think she is the manager) is so personable and professional. Even when it’s a busy or crazy Friday or Saturday night, she doesn’t let the stress show! The food is always great too! I live for the bing bread and the Brussel sprouts!!
We ate at JuJu Durham for the first time over the weekend. It was a great experience. Food, service, and ambiance were all phenomenal. We'll be back!
One of the best places we have eaten period, never mind one of the best places for Asian tapas! Absolutely delicious, perfect portions, great drinks too!
This place is okay. I've had better and worse. Pricey small plates. Tried 5 or 6 things. Most were good. Ribs were salty. No theme menu. Lackluster desserts. Most tables are small. But some large booths. Not really for kids but you could if you wanted the hassle.
Friends and I had a great experience on the patio near the firepit. Food was incredible, we ordered most of the menu! Favs were brussel sprouts, cucumbers, Mongolian beef.
Fantastic food. Service was excellent!
This was a nice outside experience. The food was good and the staff was courteous.
Love the variety of choices and flavors great for table sharing Excellent food and service.
When I made the reservation I informed the host that this would be a birthday celebration for my friend. I thought they would make an effort to make our dinner special for her. However, there was nothing special about it. We were seated at a very small table, our food was average and the drinks were mediocre.
A friend and I dined Saturday evening. Each dish was excellently prepared. Wait staff were professional and attentive. It's now a favorite place.
I took my boyfriend to get the peking duck for his birthday because I'd remembered he'd been raving about it for a year after going with his family. Needless to say, it was impeccable. I loved my experience, the staff was so friendly and helpful and it's a beautiful set up.
Wow. The food is amazing. Amazing.
Excellent array of small plates with an Asian-fusion flare. Fried chicken bun, roasted sprouts, ramen noodles did not disappoint. Nice outdoor seating options. Staff very friendly and accommodating.
Stopped into JuJu for an early dinner, and it could not have been a better experience. Knowledgeable bartender who also gave great service. The food was outstanding (try the spicy tuna!). You could tell the management and staff are taking necessary precautions during this pandemic; I felt very comfortable throughout my experience. Will definitely be back!
Excellent food. Great protocols to keep you safe. I found the waitstaff to be a bit terse.
