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.

I've visited this restaurant about 10 times over the last few years, and I've thoroughly enjoyed the savoury flavours of all the dishes I tried. The beef bulgogi bento box is very good for lunch, and only costs $8.99. I would recommend the dinner for two with the pork tangsuyuk as one of the choices. I rated this restaurant excellent,...

Went for lunch with the family. Always consistent with reasonable lunch specials. Always friendly service although if busy could take a little longer. Worth the wait though. Four of us had lunch for 30 dollars, which is very reasonable for what you get.

This is our favorite Korean food restaurant in St.Catharines. The ownership of this restaurant has changed three times in 12 years but the quality has remained the same and the variety has improved with the last changed when they added the in-table burners so you can cook your own food.

I've been to several Korean restaurants in Niagara Falls, but by far, Duru is the best of all. I highly recommend their Bulgogi, which is my favourite SO GOOOD. I think I'm going back tonight just for that.

I've been to Korea a lot in my lifetime and has amazing food. This restaurant is very authentic! Food is amazing and service is great. It's a family own business. Let's support the great family and local.

Came here for an anniversary meal. Was disappointed in the price for what you get. It is a really cool concept of cooking your own food and everything but it isn't as good as it sounds. I found a lot of the meats were very fat-loaded and not much actual edible meat on them, and I was definitely no where... More

My family, friends and I simply LOVE Duru.We enjoy going there at every opportunity. The service is so friendly; the chef is amazing. Duru will also make things vegan if you ask. And the prices are so reasonable. We could not ask for more.

Best Korean food ever, especially Bibimbob. The family that run it go the extra mile to make you feel welcome. Home-cooked food feeling. We are St Catharines locals and come here once a month at least.
