If you are looking for authentic Chinese food and not the typical buffet, then LuLu's is the place for you to check out. There are plenty of dishes to try and pass around. The larger the group to share, the more items you can sample. They bring by carts of food to your table for you to select from, so... More

The Restaurant carts offered more variety of Dim Sum items than I have ever seen. This is in comparison to many fine Dim Sum restaurants in Los Angeles area. For items that I have never seen before, the cart pusher described the items in English. I enjoyed all the dishes on the table (except the shellfish that I am allergic... More

If you relish the taste of authentic dim sum, then when you visit St. Louis Missouri, you will certainly not be disapointed by visiting Lu Lu Seafood restaurant to enjoy a large variety of different servings. We started with the steamed shrimp dumplings, the steamed pork Shiu Mai, the steamed egg custard buns and deep fried bean cur skin rolls,... More

Didn't eat here until it was described as the best Chinese in St Louis by a native of Shanghai. It's true. And it is cheap. Some amazing dishes offered.

This was my third time to LuLu's (thanks to Groupon) I liked it the first two times but this time was a little different. I went with my friend and we ordered the Orange Chicken and the General Tso Chicken. The "chicken" tended to have a lot of extra breading and hardly any chicken and the rice was super sticky...Will... More

We are experienced dim sum diners & have eaten in many states. Never have we been treated so poorly by a server like Lulu's & it's owner. First of all I chose this place because of Groupon, biiiig mistake! My husband asked for a fork & the server said nothing but kept on closing the lids to the containers on... More

Lu Lu Seafood had excellent reviews in the past, so I decided to buy two Groupons for March 2014. On both occasions, the food was terrible and the service has horrible. Needless to say, when you tell them you have Groupon, they became much more rude. Bottom line is I would NEVER come back to this restaurant, it was just... More

There were three of us in our party tonight, two ordered dim sum, and one ordered orange chicken. The orange chicken was excellent, served with a huge bowl of rice. For dim sum, we ordered the shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, scallion pancake, and one of the buns. All were very delicious. Food is served fairly quickly and the wait staff... More

While the options for dining along Olive Blvd in University City are endless, we chose Lu Lu's and were not disappointed. We were welcomed and seated quickly to a nice table and knew we had made a good choice from the "example plates" upon entry and the color photos in the menu. I enjoyed the steamed pork dumplings and Bean... More
