Really delicious food and excellent service. Really like the style and atmosphere inside, nice bar area and large tables to accommodate large groups. Went here for lunch, the apps were delicious and the pork belly banh mi was super savory and well caramelized. Definitely recommend that.

Had a fantastic meal here. You HAVE to get the shrimp. My boyfriend and I got into a real fight because he ate all of them but one when I wasn’t paying attention and I was so mad. Great options and nice atmosphere. Presentation of dishes is cool too.

Greeted by the most friendly host!! (Beautiful young lady with long dark hair). She seated us in a clean, comfortable, and spacious booth. I am thankful that I was able to bring my baby's stroller in. The FOOD WAS PERFECTLY DELICIOUS. We loved everything we ordered, 5 small plates and 1 large for the 3 of us. I would order all of them again, and would love to try everything else. Unfortunately, we are not from the area, but would make it a point to stop here if we were ever traveling here or nearby again. Thank you! So far I tried- the sweet chili cucumbers short ribs wontons, NC shrimp, dumplings, general tso chicken- all amazing.

This restaurant is nothing short of fabulous! I dined with another couple, and each dish was delicious. There was a dessert that we all shared, and it too was over the top delicious. The manager, Katie, and waitress, Nam, really made our evening! Thank you for the great service!!!

Great food and friendly service, but the plates should be served a bit slower to keep them warm (as is a tapas format you usually ask for several plates). The restaurant has a nice ambiance, but poor acoustics made it hard to hear my partner (sitting in front of me). Despite this, I'd recommend it for its delicious food and welcoming staff, better for casual outings.

Had the Charred Octopus and wife had the Salmon. Presentation was five star as was the flavor. Bartender was polite but not friendly. Didn't check back after we got food until almost done. Was still a great time though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to JuJu Durham tonight. When we made reservations, it said we would be sitting at the bar. Our waiter was amazing and very friendly. We did request (since we arrived and there were plenty of tables available from the moment we arrived until the moment we left) to have a table instead of sitting at the bar. Although that wasn’t available we still throughly enjoyed our meals. We got the NC shrimp dumplings, the short rib wontons, short ribs and the lemongrass hanger steak which was amazing. Our entire meal was delicious. The atmosphere was awesome and we truly enjoyed our first experience.

I came here with a friend as a walk-in. Luckily we did not have to wait too long and they were able to accommodate us. The restaurant design is a bit more high end than other restaurants. The food was great, and the food comes in sharable portions. All the meat dishes were incredibly tender and flavorful. Service was efficient and they regularly checked up on us. The only negative thing I have to say is the environment is loud so speaking with your table may be a tiny bit difficult. Portion sizes for appetizers were relatively small if they are shared, but perhaps better suited for one person. The pricing was overall good for the portion and quality. It gets busy so I'd recommend you plan accordingly.

We called first to be sure we weren't going to be too late. They seat Friday lunch until 1:45 💙 Arrived with plenty of time! We were seated immediately. You MUST try the salad buns! The Lucky Me cocktail was an excellent choice. My chicken entree was FABULOUS... seasoned and grilled to perfection. And the sauce: red curry and oyster mushrooms... a match made in heaven.
