Delicious

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

Can not get enough of LuLu's dim sum. This is a must for anyone who has never experienced this style of eating.

This is one of the more authentic Chinese restaurants that I have been to in St. Louis. The food is pretty good, and they have a good selection. If you would like to be paid attention to and get friendly service, this place may not be for you. Chinese restaurants can sometimes have a rep for not having the best... More

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
