The food here was ok and the service was fine. That's about what I can say about it that will be the most helpful because I know you can find better food than this around the area, but it's still good enough to eat here. I just think they put too many items on the menu so the meals are... More

Lu Lu appears to be a St Louis institution, showing off multiple awards on its front entrance. Nondescript on the outside, inside you are immediately transported to a Chinatown 1970's decor, dated but fun. Staff were very attentive and helpful. We were here for a large banquet so were able to sample a wide variety of dishes. The seafood soup... More

We had try this place for lunch and Sunday brunch. Lunch was very good, good portions and price was reasonable, service was not the best but not horrible. Sunday was a total different experience, we were the only non Asian people in the restaurant !! That was a good sign for me all seen to be authentic because we didn't... More

It pains me to write this review. We have been to Lu Lu Seafood at least 10 times, and the food has always been good, the service attentive and the plates/glasses fine. Tonight I was served on a plate that had a hunk broken out, and sadly I did not notice that my water glass was broken, until after I... More

The moment you see this place from the road, you get the images of China Town from the movies in ur mind. Once you enter (even on the outer walls near the front door), all you see is the different awards this place has received. The staff is very friendly and always on their toes. The menu is very well... More

Experienced the BEST Chinese Restaurant in St Louis on Christmas Day along with 1000's of others. As we rolled west on Olive, we passed the sparse parking lots of other Chinese eateries flashing the "Open" sign - knowing damn well the wait would be well worth it. Circling in the parking lot for 5 minutes and finally parking in an... More

Lu Lu is one of two better Dim Sum restaurants in the Saint Louis area. Lu Lu offers a good variety of Dim Sum which retained authentic taste unlike some of the Americanized restaurant. The vegetables can be hit or missed, several times the "Choy Sum" or Green Beans were ice cold and completely lack of seasoning. However, the food... More

My family really enjoyed our visit to this place. The dim sum is second to none in the area, although there are better ones in other states. The atmosphere is very Chinese, with lots of reds and golds and plenty of mirrors. If one is not careful, he can rack up a large dinner bill with the dim sum, as... More

I have only eaten here on Sundays. That is when Lulu offers "dim sum", a Chinese portable buffet. Wait staff brings various dishes to your table and you pick what looks good or interesting. Everything I try is uniformly excellent.
