We come here often - this is one of the better Korean restaurants in the niagara region but there aren't that many choices. They have a lunch menu but we've only been for dinner. They upgraded and revamped their menu - lots more Korean items offered but they got rid of the sushi. That's ok there are other sushi restaurants... More

Went there last week. The service was very good, a bit disappointed because all the bbq tables were all full, so we didn't get to experience that part of the restaurant. Had a variety of dishes, all came promptly and what as supposed to be hot in temperature was indeed hot, and cold was cold. The clear noodle beef dish... More

Duru was our first Korean food and we really liked it. Lots of variety, vegetables readily available, very reasonable prices.

Very nice little restaurant. We had the seafood hot pot which actually had fish and shellfish in it. and they adjusted the heat level on it for the seniors that we were with. The appetizers and the grilled meats were very tasty.

We just tried this place after a chef friend recommended it. Went for lunch. Bento box was amazing. Only $9.95 and came with SO much food. Fresh homemade dumplings, salad, miso soup, rice and I had Spicy Pork (DELICIOUS). Also came with kimchi and such condiments. Cheaper than fast food and the service was quick! We were in and out...

A snap decision to stop for dinner, as we drove past Duru Restaurant, turned out the best plan ever. We were lucky to get a table right away as the place was full and new people were entering every 15 minutes. While waiting for our food, we noticed how no diners were rushed at all and when they did leave,... More

This is a nice sized cozy restaurant. The food is not greasy or overly salty. You walk away feeling full but not sick and the price range is decent for most dishes. The staff here are friendly and helpful and always smiling. For Niagara, this is a good korean restaurant and I recommend it.
