Lulu’s did a great job with my takeout order, so I can’t comment on in-restaurant dining. I will say that Stacy, the bartender who handled my take-out order, was outstanding. She actually asked me if I needed time to review the menu before ordering, gave...More

Their menu has a lot of options so there's something for everyone. I had the shrimp lettuce wraps from the appetizer menu. They were so good and the portions were generious! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because parking is a nightmare....More

We are sweet and a little spicy, just like the traditional Thai dishes we serve. It is this delicious balance that has made us a popular neighborhood spot for over 18 years. We believe family is important. Each time we make a dish at LuLu's we honor my father's family recipes. Because we make all of our dishes to order, we promise, whenever possible, to accommodate any special requests. We appreciate our hard working staff for the work they do for us and for who they are as individuals. We appreciate that same quality in our guests. So whether you love noodles or rice, like it hot or not, eat meat or veg out, we make sure your food is fresh, hot, and as individual as you are.
