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.

Dine at the exquisite bar, in the luxurious booths, in the main dining room, or around the fire pit on the patio. Make a meal from small plates or order a whole Peking duck to share with friends.

Just come ready for a memorable experience.

    What a fantastic way to celebrate a significant others birthday! It was pleasant from the moment we came in and we were taken care of accordingly. Ryan, our server, went above and beyond in making this feel like an extra special occasion and made us all feel welcomed! Not to mention we felt like we were always on the same wavelength as him! Best service ever! We’ll definitely be coming back!

    Met friends to celebrate two birthdays over lunch. Given a break in the heat, we sat on the patio and it was lovely. The food was great (shrimp dumplings, ahi poke, General Tso's tofu, hanger steak salad), and the service excellent. We also enjoyed the birthday dessert!

    Upon reservation confirmation the afternoon proceeding are dinner, I was asked how long our dinner would take, because a reservation was confirmed 90min behind us. Additionally, while the food was great, the service was terrible, which is the new post-COVID standard.

    Soooo good!!!! Service at the bar was superb. Food was delicious and staff was friendly and didn’t pester. Great vibe, they know what they’re doing and they’re doing it well! Spicy tuna, garlic noodles, Mongolian beef amazing. Shrimp dumplings dough a little too thick but shrimp filling was very good.

    Amazing!!! My wife and I came here for dinner after getting married and they treated us so unbelievably special. The food and drinks were unique and delicious, and the service was truly stellar. They gave us a free plate as well as dessert without us even asking. Everyone was so great. We will definitely be back.

    Some of the WORST service we've ever had. Server barely came to table and never bothered to ask us how the food was, but was happy to chat up older people. LITERAL black mold on air vents right above us and around us. If you can't clean them, replace them! The sad part is the food was awesome. Everything else was pretty damn awful.

    We visited JUJU on an anniversary, during a trip from NJ. We arrived an hour early and the front desk was able to seat us early. JUJU is a really nice, contemporary restaurant and bar with inside and outside dining in a hip part of Durham. Service was pleasant and attentive. But the reason to come is the food. We had a wide variety of food from soup to appetizers to main courses, and JUJU was a surprise. Flavors were amazing and spiced/layered very well - red curry mushroom soup, mushrooms and bok choy, Shishito peppers, (sounds cliche but) the best General Tso's chicken we have had in ages, an excellent Hawaiian Poke with lots of Tuna and Avocado, and a very light chocolate mousse dessert. This was a highlight meal halfway through a 10 day Southeastern road trip, and the best of three dinners we had at top rated restaurants in RDU. Highly recommended, toast to the chefs...

    Have visited twice (as a table of 3) over the past two weeks, and everything everyone had both times (no overlap of items) was really good! Do not expect this to be run of the mill food. If you have tastes that run toward "regular" things, this may be too exciting.

    Loved the fresh spring rolls and the bing bread (new to me). The several things we ordered were all terrific. My friend loved the brussels sprouts. Our only issue was that it was very loud. Outside was not an option due to an impending storm. After we ate we sat outside to talk because conversation inside was almost impossible. But the food was great!

    We are regulars at Juju. This past Saturday (7/16/22) at 5:30pm everything was perfect! The kitchen, service, etc were all on their game. They had a special salmon tartare that was incredible. And the lettuce wraps are excellent - great touch adding the crunchy rice to the dish. I wish they would bring back the corn shrimp appetizer. Great food! To the owner (meant with the utmost respect): there were a few times over the course of the last year when some dishes were not consistent. For example, the Mongolian Beef is my favorite. I've had it at least 15 times so I know when it's perfect. It's best when the beef is sliced thin and has charred/blackened edges. A few times in the past it was not steaming hot, or the meat was too thick, or it didn't have that wonderful blackened crunch on the edges. But this past Saturday is was fantastic!

    The food was a 10 out of 10. Everything we had was amazing and spot on. We enjoyed every component of our meal and the drinks were excellent. They were not watered down they were very vibrant and strong. Stand out items for the Bing bread and the Aji tuna bites honestly everything we had was amazing… Everything tasted fresh. I thought all the food was creative. Our server was excellent she did a great job of informing us and guiding us through the menu. Yes place has been on my list of restaurants to check out and it did not disappoint. Can’t wait to go back

    this was for our anniversary and it was a perfect evening of delightful unique foods. The flavors are many layered and delicious. The service was mostly good but they did forget one of the pieces in our order. The setting is beautiful but the music was inappropriate to dining. But overall... an excellent evening of dining.

    The ambiance was good and the service was excellent. The food was just ok. The portions that were advertised as plates were pretty small, octopus was cooked well but there was only one piece. The Singapore noodles were sweet for some reason, I've never had sweet Singapore noodles before. Was not a fan. Portion size was also extremely small. Was not impressed at all.

    Juju continues to have the BEST food and we typically have a great experience but this time was disappointing simply because it was SO HOT inside. We were sweating and ultimately decided to get the food to go. It was July and when we went outside we realized it would have been cooler to eat outside. Fix the AC or pump it up and everything will be back to the typical Juju perfection! :)

    Went to Juju based on reviews & although the food was good, the service was lacking. It took way too long for our server to acknowledge us. Didn’t introduce himself. Basically just felt he wanted to take our order & be done with us. Sitting at a high top table was very uncomfortable especially as a someone who need to be able to rest their feet on solid flooring, but that may be just personal preference. Overall it was a good experience but would probably choose another dining experience when given the opportunity for date night.
