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

The service is bad, the food is terrible. We choose it because of the high recommendation. But it really turned us down. If you want to try the traditional and good Chinese food, go to the one across the street, Chaozhou Cuisine. That one is really good!

On my recent visit, the overriding factor is the RUDENESS of the Dragon Man at the front & the wait staff. The Dim Sum was just O.K. - so-so. The Peking Duck SUCKED - was, way too much soggy fat, none of that crispy unqutiousness (sp?) that is PD. Took ONE bite & tried to send it back & was... More

Lu Lu is located in an area populated by many Asian restaurants, many of which are said to be "authentic." Lu Lu does offer a varied and interesting menu, along with more familiar dishes such as Kung Pao Chicken. The list of hot plates and noodle dishes is far more extensive than we've seen elsewhere. The food was very tasty,... More

This place is the real thing. The best authentic Dim Sum that I have eaten outside of Chinatown in San Francisco. I enjoyed every single item that we ate with only one exception, the deep fried shrimp. But all of the other dishes were fantastic. The place was packed and the wait is well worth it. Good food, excellent service,... More

My husband and I enjoy Chinese food immensely. We recently dined here with friends who told us that it was very good. They were right! The portions were large and served hot. All 4 of us had ordered beef dishes, and they all had their own unique flavor -- sometimes they all come out tasting the same. The crab rangoon... More

I go here often and can't get enough of the house special beef, it's sooo good! The shrimp and pork wontons and crab rangoons are great too. In fact, I've never had a bad dish here. I've only had the dim sum once, but enjoyed everything I tried and plan on going back for that again soon.
