First time at Juju’s and it did not disappoint. Menu was inventive and quite eclectic and the food was terrific. Great service provided by Evan who answered many questions, always with a smile. I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in Durham.

Description
Deliciously lucky. Juju: Asian Tapas + Bar is an Asian fusion tapas dining experience in Durham, North Carolina. Juju is the exciting sister restaurant to Chapel Hill's acclaimed Jujube, launched by local restaurateurs Julian Benfey and Charlie Deal, the award-winning chef behind Jujube and Durham's Dos Perros. 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 late into the night. 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, extensive 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.
