Details from the owners:

"JUJU" the sizzling sound of grilling in Japanese


Welcome to Juju, a retro Showa era (1926-1989) themed izakaya featuring a six seat kappo har, irakaya dining room, and lounge. We want our guests to feel like they've stepped into howa era Japan the moment the see our stand alone building (which used to be a local Pizza Hut). We communicate this with our design and d├ęcor, most of which is straight from Japan creating an authentic atmosphere with not only our food, but with signs and toys plastered on our walls

Our goal is to provide the local Orlando community a fun and relaxing place where they can come to eat drink, and create memories with their friends, co-workers, etc. Juju truly offers something for everyone and every mood.

Located in the center of Juju our six seat Omakase experience offers a chef's tasting menu led by our executive chef and owner Lewis, head chef Cayo, and chef de cuisine Albert. Our chefs will create different set menus featuring in season ingredients so that returning customers will have a different experience each time!

Our izakaya dining room is a casual and traditional dining experience where customers are seated and waited on with our team of servers. This dining room will offer various small plates, raw dishes, and Japanese charcoal grilled skewers (yakitori, kushiyaki, etc)

Bar & Lounge

Our bar and lounge will feature an extensive variety of Japanese whiskey, shochu, premium sake, and craft beers. We'll have craft cocktails from the popular Japanese hi-ball and chu-hi along with Japanese shows ers pop culture themed cocktails. Our lounge and bar will also offer a separate kitchen menu consisting of various Japanese bar snacks only available at the lounge
