Interesting....and good

The crab ragoon and the pot stickers were very good. The shrimp, chicken, beef and vegetables was a great dish. The three seafood mixed chef style was very good, with a little kick to it. Overall, the food was good, the service was lacking, as they forgot us.

Can I give an 0 Star! The service is too poor. I've been there too times, the place is crowed and rice is not edible. Much poorer than any other Chinese restaurant. They can even not separate the bill, I've never heard of that before in U.S. When we asked to separate the bill, it added 20% tips in it.... More

I took a good friend from out of town, and tried to show him some authentic Chinese food in the St.Louis area. We ordered some dim sum and also ordered a fish dish from the Chinese menu. Dim sum came first, and it's all good. About 30 min later, we noticed the fish dish is still not here. I asked... More

A real Chinese Dim Sum dining experience. If you're not familiar with dim sum, it's small baskets of savory Chinese dumplings such as Shumai, and Har gow. Various meat and other delectable dishes. Generally, a server will come along pushing a cart loaded with different baskets; typically you'll see seven or eight different carts. The food here is great and... More

The only items we had that we good was the fried rice and the crab Rangoon. The sweet and sour filet of fish was in the most unappetizing red sauce, the duck was cold and the pancakes were more like tortillas. I would never go back. The jasmine tea was a tea bag in terrible tasting water.

We dined on Chinese New Year, the atmosphere was so festive, Dragon dancers, the food was fantastic, you can't get authentic Chinese seafood like this except in San Francisco.

Lu Lu's Seafood is great for Dim Sum on special occasions. The servers are a bit hard with whom to communicate, but observe and point. There are many Dim Sum carts and many food choices. It's fun to share food in this cultural style.......and delicious.

The best Dim Sum around. It's always hot and fresh; so hot you have to let some dishes cool of a minute before eating them. The waiters/waitresses speak English and are very pleasant. This place ROCKS!!! I've eaten at so many other restaurants serving Dim Sum on the weekends across the U.S.. Lu Lu's is SO GOOD that my wife... More

This is our favorite Chinese restaurant. Dim sum brunch on weekends and holidays is a treat. The carts go around and you get to see what you are ordering first. Very good dinner food off the menu. The seafood is great, and we've had whole fish and lobster there. The service is authentic, and usually fast. Very nice managers, long-term... More
