    Met for lunch with 3 business associates. Requested a booth, and we were seated at one of their lovely booths near the back. This was not my first visit, previously entries a luxurious dinner here. The lunch menu left us wanting. There were just a few options and it was not broad enough to meet the needs of our party. Service was on par with what we are accustomed to. However, I’ll not be returning for lunch. While we understand some restaurants have limited lunch menus, this one simply did not meet our expectations.

    I’ve been waiting a few months for the chance to get to JuJu Durham and it did not disappoint! I had a reservation at 7:15 and was able to get seated a little before. My friend and I ordered 2 small plates, 2 large plates and noodles and shared everything. The food was delicious, our server was super kind and helpful, and the ambiance was great. There’s also plenty of parking around so that wasn’t an issue. The prices are kind of high for the food you get compared to a takeout Asian food spot but the quality made it well worth it. If they’re considering going—definitely go!

    This was our first visit to JuJu Durham for our party of 3 adults on Feb 1. The hostess was attentive and friendly. Our server was very attentive and professional. The food was outstanding and creative. My favorite food was the mushroom curry soup as this was creative and SO tasty. We also enjoyed the cauliflower crumbles, NC shrimp dumplings, maple glazed sweet potato bites, fried chicken buns, and General Tso's chicken as all of these food items were delicious. The maple glazed sweet potato bites were enough for 3 people as the proportion was generous. The cauliflower crumbles had a very tasty sauce. General Tso's chicken was very flavorful and lite (no heavy breading or taste). My wife enjoyed the Blueberry Nights drink as this was tasty and creative. Our friend enjoyed the peanut butter chocolate mousse for dessert. The cost of our meal with 3 people was VERY reasonable. We greatly enjoyed our meal and service at JuJu Durham and would highly recommend this restaurant for a great meal and evening out in Durham NC for everyone.

    Our favorite restaurant in Durham. I work in hospitality and I can tell you the team a JuJu gets it. They’re always anticipating your needs and delivering an excellent experience for their guests. The team at the host stand are seasoned pros, the servers are polite and professional, and the kitchen team consistently produces delicious dishes. It’s hard to not order the entire menu! And don’t skimp on the dessert. You don’t want to miss out the sweet and savory options to close out your evening. We sat at the bar during our most recent visit, and we had one of the best experiences yet. Plenty of space to have private conversation and you’re amongst all the action happening behind the bar. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough!

    From the hostess to our server & runners—every employee was exceptional. The food was delish. We just wish the tables for two were farther apart for privacy and the possible viral transference. It would greatly help with the “ambiance” as well.

    We came for dinner, and was surprised to see the doors open a few minutes late. There was a good crowd, and the hostess was efficient but not personable as she worked down the line. I was surprised and a little annoyed. Later the waitor made up for it. I'd come back but encourage the manager to be kind.

    Red curry mushroom soup was fabulous (it was a little much all by itself but the waiter suggested putting it over some complimentary rice, and that transformed it into the perfect blend); all other menu items we tried: shrimp dumplings, Sichuan noodles had potential but came out a bit dry. Still really fun and interesting dining experience!

    Always a pleasure to eat at Jujus! I don't often get here for lunch but am always happy when I do, because they have the most amazing Tofu Banh Mi (the beef is great too). It sadly isn't on the dinner menu, but other great things are. Our server was attentive and accommodating and we had a fantastic time! Thank you!
