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.

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.

    Asian Fusion tips you off the menu is creative, and that is the reality. My dinner companions were 2 long time friends from Northern California who are well versed in fine dining. We had about a dozen small plate dishes that we all shared. I had the octopus which is excellent, the lady in our group agreed heartily. Their web site is very well done and has the complete menu. Their drink menu is eclectic and delicious. My friends were very complimentary on my "find" for our dinner.

    Each dish we tried blew us away; the shrimp dumplings, the salad rolls, the scallops entree and the general tso with tofu. The strawberry-yuzu-black peppercorn sorbet and the coconut sorbet were phenomenal, especially the coconut. WOW! If you haven't tried Juju yet - you need to!

    Great alternative if you want something else than American(-Italian) kitchen. Appetizers were delicious, 'main' plates (hanger steak & lamb) were ok, but nothing more. Wines by the glass were very good. Friendly & professional staff.

    The pulled beef short rib wantons were outstanding. Best part of the meal, but not to take anything away from the other dishes. I really liked the fried chicken and then the garlic ramen dishes. The bone marrow dish was good, but underwhelming compared to the others.

Although it definitely improved through our visit Kate was the best! And the food was excellent !

    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!
