I had Pho in Vietnam, but at Lu's it is nearly the same. They serve their Pho (rice noodle soupe) with chicken or soya. Really delicious! Furthermore it seems to be very well known, as there have been a lot of people for lunch! I do not think you have to make reservations as people come and go. They have... More

This is the best Vietnamese food we have ever had. We had meated and vegetarian dishes and one was better than the next. The entire menu is delicious including the summer rolls and other appetizers. They have a wide variety of daily specials which make deciding on your meal very difficult as it is all so good. The prices are... More

I Love Lu, been coming here since a few years now! The main menu is quite short with only a few dishes but the summerrolls and the caribo are amazing. You can switch the beef for vegetarian or tofu if you like! Their Ginger Iced Tea is super delicious! They have a weekly menu that changes but always has amazing... More

I fond of Lu! You gotta try Lu for an authentic and traditional vietnamese Cuisine. Dont worry about the price. Fair and moderate. Been there 2x already, tried the beef, chicken and duck dishes. And always leave the venue happily...

This is the best vietnamese restaurant I ever tried! I tried only vegetarian food, usually they are a bit "sweet" also and I love that! Often there is mint and cashews

Lu is just great. Whatever you do, start with the duck roll served with peanut butter sauce. It's the definition of delicious!! Went here numerous times and they tend to have daily specials so I can't pinpoint you to a specific meal, but seriously: It's all amazing! Also, make sure to try some of their fresh juices. Staff is also... More

So yummy! Have the pho and you won't regret it! So heart warming and yummy. I love how small the place is and that you're sitting on benches at big tables. The teas are great too!! Service is friendly and the prices are very fair!!! I'll be back for sure! One of those places that you want to have in... More
