A delicious dim sum which gave me an opportunity to try several unfamiliar dishes. I made the announcement for all vegetarian & seafood options ONLY upon arrival since I didn't have a helper with me to identify the food choices. The cart came by regularly with the ladies offering & suggesting vegetables, seafood and carbs in the form of irresistible... More

My Partner who is Chinese suggested LuLu's on Olive. I was hopeful this would be special and on arriving I saw a great mix of eastern and western folks so as they say seeing lots of people means the food should be good. The service was 4.5 Stars truly not the most lovely place but typical Chinese as I have... More

My husband, daughter and myself went there for my birthday. At first it was a learning experience. Can;t wait to go back and try different items. Didn't realize just how many dishes you could choose from. It was a fun way to celebrate.We each had our favorite dishes, mainly we liked the dumplings.

A coworker who is Chinese took me to Lu Lu's on a recent business trip. This is authentic Chinese food. It was very good. We ordered off of the authentic menu (had to ask for it) and the food was prepared just the way we ordered it. Our waiter only spoke Chinese, but other wait staff could speak English.

First, don't let anyone fool you. The menu may be primarily written in Chinese but this is still Americanized Chinese food. I know as my brother lived in China a long while and we have gone to a true Chinese restaurant, China Jade, in Aurora, CO. However, the three dishes we did have were all very well prepared and flavorful.... More

My son had tried the food here on a previous St.Louis tripand suggested our visit for dinner. The decor resembles some of the average Chinese Restaurants in the parts of Hongkong frequent by locals, that is lots of colors, particularly reds, many incandescent light globes. In these restaurants, food is Ok, and service always minimal. My own expectations of food... More

I visited this place with my friend during a weekday for lunch. There were not many customers. When I made my order, I did not know the two dishes I ordered were almost identical, except one material. I even asked the waiter if I should choose my second dish and he did not bother to tell me that my first... More

This is not your typical Americanized Chinese food place. It is a pleasant sit down Chinese restaurant with a vast menu and exceptionally tasty food. The staff is efficient and polite.

This place has been here forever and the people who run it are just wonderful. They keep their prices pretty low compared to most and the service is just impeccable. It feels like you are at home here! Their sesame shrimp and hot braised chicken are great!!! I've had most of the things in the menu and there isn't a... More

First of all, I think the food at this place is decent, acceptable. It is rather pricey, though. I have had similar dishes at other Chinese restaurants before and the bill was probably about 1/3 lower at other places. It is probably not the nicest setting among Chinese restaurants I have been to, but it is not bad. However, there... More
