    I seriously don’t know how it is possible for every single bite of every dish we ordered to be just about the best tasting thing I’ve ever eaten, but they somehow accomplished it. The craft cocktail I ordered was also seriously one of the best I’ve ever had. The service was fantastic and I can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough. Five stars, for sure!

    This is a great restaurant if you want to go out to dinner for an experience! The food was fresh, unique, and fabulous. It is a great place to try new foods with small plates. We wish we had another couple with us so we could have ordered even more plates because every dish was equal to or better than the last.

    Wonderful food and service. We shared 4 stayers and small plates along with one large plate. Short rib wontons, chili cucumbers, garlic noodles and mushroom curry soup. One dish was better than the previous one. The lemon grass steak was perfectly cooked. We ended with the burnt lemon curd dessert. Well with the stop.

    Have been to JuJu 15 times in the last 2 years, small parties and large parties 12-15). Always spectacular! This time, not so much. Hostess was not welcoming, food was not up to usual standard. Service was good. The brussels sprouts were not recognizable…, Mongolian beef was way too sweet and mostly potatoes. The fine hand at seasoning and presentation was sorely lacking. Hope next try will be back to usual standard.

    Came here for lunch after not visiting for a few years and was pretty disappointed. The appetizer was pretty good but the entrees were not great, especially for the price. The didn’t have any tea at all either which was odd. Don’t plan on going back.

    The hostess was rude, curt and abrupt, after calling to advise we may be late as we were searching for parking and being told okay. Waiter service was good overall. Curry soup and bomb a** shrimp were good. However the shrimp dumplings were bland and the general tsos was dry, flavorless and old. Highly disappointing. The waiter brought additional sauce which was thin and didn’t help much. This visit was very different from past experiences.

    We were so excited about coming Juju based on the reviews. Unfortunately we did not have the best experience. One of our entree did not arrive until about 30 minutes after we finished eating our other entrees. We ordered everything at the same time. We asked them several times. They had no coffee or tea at this restaurant for after dinner? The food was just ok We generally love to give good reviews. We hope this will the restaurant get better!

    Great vibe and energy even at 5:30 pm on a Friday, which I assume is because people were pre-something else, like us, preparing for an event at the Carolina Theatre. The small plate (dumplings) was excellent, but the Hanger steak has gone a step in the wrong direction in our opinion. It is served on a butcher block, and no longer has the juices it had before, and the beautiful square of rice was dry. Plus the NOISE was such that even on an intimate 2-top, we couldn't hear each other speak. We love Juju's but we're thinking its better for lunch.

    Food was delicious as always. Definitely would NOT dine here again on a Duke basketball game night - there were staff members who stood at the bar and were watching the game, cheering, jumping up and down, etc. I expect that from a sports bar but not a more upscale restaurant - it definitely detracted from our evening. Service was also definitely slower than typical.

    It wasn’t as good as it has been in the past. My martini was not very cold, the glass was not chilled. A good Martini should be ice cold. The spicy tuna bites were just okay and not worth the price (4 pieces-$16). The Mongolian beef was a huge disappointment, the meat and potatoes in the dish were terribly overcooked. Waiter never asked how are food was and when I told him the martini was not cold he brought me ice. We understand prices have gone up everyday, JUJU was always top notch and this time it was over priced and far from good.

    The female hostess at front desk was a bit rude. We got there right before opening and she unlocked the door and didn’t bother telling anyone it was open and when people started coming in she kept asking to shut the door cause she was cold but we all were waiting outside. We had 3 desserts. The donuts which were very good, the chocolate peanut butter cup was decent and the pot de crème which did not taste good at all. All for of us had a small taste and couldn’t continue. The waiter was very professional but should have offered us a different dessert. Overall it was good

    It took 10 minutes between being seated, getting a bottle of water, and then finally getting the glasses to drink. When the waiter finally came over to take any kind of order (drink,food,etc) we kind of just ordered everything we would need in one go since we didn’t feel comfortable with trusting that he would come back any time soon. The food is good. The grilled octopus only had one leg and lots of potatoes as filler. Everything else was great for the price, like the drunken noodles, steak, and other vegetable menu items. The tapas system works well and the portions are large enough to split in a tapa-per-head system.

    Experience was great. Good food. The only thing I would say was annoying, was the hostess asking us every 5 min when the third person in our party was going to arrive cuz she needed the table by 7:15. It was 6:00.

    JuJu is my family's place for special occasion dinners. It's pricey, but it's a great experience. I love the atmosphere (especially outside in good weather) and the food is scrumptious. The drinks are excellent too. I ate there this week, and, although the spicy tuna bites, curry soup, pork belly buns and shrimp were outstanding, the Gen Tso's chicken was a disappointment. The chicken was dry, and the flavors were nothing special. Still - I love this restaurant. I'll definitely go again.... I just won't order the chicken.
