Ok, Chinese resturaunt, they're all the same right? Not really. I transferred here from NW Indiana and I've been looking for a specific dish easily found up there but until now elusive here. The dish up north is called Hot Singapore Chow Mai. Here its called Singapore Noodle. Rice noodle dish with shrimp,pork and various finely chopped veg. Its awesome... 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

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
