Juju was launched by local restaurateurs Julian Benfey and Charlie Deal. Located on Ninth St. near Duke University’s East Campus, Juju is the luckiest place in town to be, for anything from an early bite to a fun evening dinner party.

Juju serves up small plates with bold flavors, each prepared creatively with attention to tradition, whimsy, local integrity, and, of course, deliciousness. In addition to its extensive and delicious menu, Juju features a dynamic beverage program of hand-made cocktails, Sake selections and a well-chosen list of artisan wines and craft beers.

    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!

    Excellent food as always, served promptly. But the Hostess was not very attentive or engaged. Waiter was great. But we learned the restaurant does “not serve hot beverages.” Couldn’t get hot tea, coffee, anything. It detracted from our experience and seems unnecessarily restrictive.

    We had a mixed experience with Juju. What I liked: the service was good, the ambiance (although it was a little loud at first because of a couple of larger parties nearby), charred octopus was delicious. What I didn't like: To be fair, as it turned out, the flavor profiles were just not for us. My wife doesn't like cilantro (it tastes like a chemical to her), and it was in a number of dishes we tried. The lump crab buns tasted a bit too fishy. The scallops, similarly, had a slightly "fishy" taste. That is, Juju is just not for us. With this said, a lot of my friends love this place.
