Wife and I went for anniversary. Wasn't crowded. In the 30 odd-years we've lived around here, we've never tried it. All the places we liked around Tysons had closed but I remembered that Lo's was in the shopping center. Glad we stopped. Fish with pepper (flounder) was the best I've ever had. Chef's special soup - delicious with big shrimp.... More

Stopped in for a quiet lunch while shopping in Pan Am center. Clean, comfortable and quiet restaurant. Had Shrimp Chow Mein, Egg Drop, and Egg roll. All the food was pretty good.

They generally have decent service. Don't seem happy to have kids in there, however. Good hot and sour soup, decent ting ting shrimp.

Lo's used to be a wonderful Chinese restaurant under its founder and long time owner. When she retired, she sold the restaurant to one of the waiters. From that point on the quality and service have declined to the point that you can't be sure whether you get the same taste and quality each time you go there. The change... More

So glad that the new owners of Lo turned the business around! Two weeks ago we ordered Kung Pao Chicken and Green Beans Schezuan style for delivery. Ordered arrived I. Less than 20 minutes and the food was delicious again! So today we decided to stop by for a late lunch. Surprisingly, even during a weekday and after 2:30pm, there... More

We have been going to Lo's for a long time, mostly because it has a nice selection of lamb dishes. The menu is extensive, and the food has always been well prepared. Prices are moderate, and the service quite attentive. Unless you are a Chinese food snob you won't be disappointed.

Typical American-style 'Chinese' restaurant. absolutely not live up to the name of 'Szechuan' or 'Hunan'. Service is good, but food is terrible.

I've been going to this restaurant for at least 15 years! They treat me like family. The food is always fresh and delicious.

My wife, sister and I ate at Lo's and had a wonderful meal. The service was good, people are friendly and the food is consistently wonderful too. We'd recommend Lo's to anyone who enjoys Chinese food.
