This is definitely a ritzy place. Its relatively expensive and designed to appeal to affluent consumers. I love the Mongolian beef it had a pleasantly sharp savoy taste, an appetizing flavor. The fried rice, wonton, dumplings, and sweet honey barbecue flavored ribs were a delight. If you are in town you have to stop here for dinner.

Phenomenal service and food. Perfect for a group, we had eight which allowed us all to try a large part of the menu. Every dish was 10/10. The short rib wontons were to die for and the sweet potatoes were really unique. Our server did a great job of giving us a heads up about the kitchen closing times when we sat down at 815 and made sure that we got all of our final food and drinks in before 9. We will be back!

This is a popular spot so I recommend reservations. It's popular for good reasons. Everything we ate was outstanding. All food is brought out as soon as it is completed by the kitchen so all dishes are hot and fresh. The eclectic choices on the menu had us curious until we actually tried them. We will definitely be back.

The food is excellent for small plates at dinner. The menu does rotate some but I have yet to find something that I didn't enjoy or wouldn't eat again. The peanut butter cup dessert is delicious and a don't miss, even if you have to take it home to enjoy it. The food is priced on the higher side but you get what you pay for, so worth every penny.

We visited on a Thursday night and they were booked solid but still very accommodating. It was only two of us. They had a cancellation and were able to fit us in. Everyone was nice, the atmosphere was good and the food was light and refreshing. Dishes are made to order and meant to share. If you have a big appetite order more but two appetizers and two entrees were more than enough for two.

Fantastic!!! All 3 of us really enjoyed our meals. Lots of vegan and gluten free options, none of which compromised on flavor. The lettuce wraps we great, and they had tofu, actually my favorite tofu sushi have had! The sauce in the scallops was incredible and the scallops were perfectly cooked. We used the sauce from the scallops and mixed in with the General Tso chicken, so good!!

I ordered food for lunch and we all Know lunch time is hectic and time is very important. I came in at the expected time. My food was packaged and placed on a bench at the front of the restaurant. Such an easy and direct pickup. I’ve found myself looking around and trying to figure things out before, but not here. It was quick, easy, and convenient. Not to mention, the food was bomb! 😋 I had not had Mongolian beef with potatoes before, but it was an interesting twist that did not disappoint! I also enjoyed the red peppers in the spring rolls. Another first that added an interesting flavor I enjoyed!

Would have been 5 stars but the host almost made me not try this amazing place for the first time...very unpleasant experience as I walked in and asked for a table but still decided to try it out despite her unwelcoming tone. Food was amazing, had both dumplings, general tsos chicken, ribs and fried rice. Everything was great with our favorites being the chicken and shrimp dumplings. Ribs had great flavor as well but wanted more sauce! Service was quick, friendly and accommodated our food aversions! Would def recommend and go back. Hopefully we will be able to sit outside next time but either way food was great.

This place is one-of-a-kind, the servers are awesome, the food quality is beyond what I thought. I really loved it! World class dining cuisine in a city you wouldn’t have expected this kind of food! Absolutely loved it, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 5-star without even trying.

Great variety on the menu. Ordered the sweet chili cucumbers, pork dumplings, mushroom curry soup, garlic ramen noodles with pickled cabbage, and Mongolian beef. It was all delicious and the wait staff was excellent as well. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy Asian food.

The ambiance was fantastic, our server Kai was excellent, food was scrumptious and we saw Paolo Banchero in a corner by the door. What a great dinner! The grilled octopus was the best I've ever had and I highly recommend the sorbet. Oh, and the bartender knew how to perfectly blend our slightly dirty Kettle One martinis. Highly recommended.

My first experience on April 2nd, 2022 was nothing short of amazing. My friends and I were there to celebrate my birthday, we had a 7:15 reservation for 3 and was seated promptly (the best window seat in the house, my opinion). Our waiter (I can't remember his name, my apologies), was very kind, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu. He also had an awesome accent. Well, my friends and I ordered drinks and they were delicious I highly recommend the Tempest (I enjoyed 2 of them), followed by our tapas. The presentation was beautiful, the smells and flavors were amazing, the food was prepared to expertise. My enormous compliments to everyone on staff. From the time we got there until we left AFTER closing, we felt welcomed and we enjoyed our Juju experience. Superb compliments to the Chefs and kitchen staff we left with our tastebuds tingling with happiness.

Ryan was our server; and he was great. He had awesome suggestions, was really professional, and he was quick. The whole staff worked together to make the whole experience smooth. By the way every dish we had I’d recommend. I’ll be back!

The food was all fantastic. I thought the portions were small at first but I left satisfied. The $$$ is worth it. The waiter seemed to be frustrated for some reason that probably had nothing to do with us. Like his mind was somewhere else. Hope he has a better week. All things eventually change. 😌

I've been to Juju twice now. We hosted our company dinner there in December. It was 16 people and the service and quality of food was incredible. We returned with some friends a week ago and had just as lovely of an experience. Kate who I believe is a/the manager was just as friendly and attentive to our small group as she was to our big corporate party. And cooler than anything, the women's restroom was outfitted with all kinds of little amenities that were actually useful and presented nicely. I've been recommending this place to anyone and everyone I can. I've tried more than half of the menu now and can honestly say you could point at anything and be happy with what you get. 10/10.

Juju has absolutely delicious food! Everything I had was wonderful. My server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu items like sake. The hostess could use some more training i.e. seat your customers before having a conversation with your friend about your plans for the night, but the food was so good I'll still give them 5 stars.
