good food, disappointing service – Lulu's is located on S. Craig street, amongst a litany of other restaurants.

I went there on a Saturday afternoon. I was seated after only a minute or two, but it took 15 minutes for someone to come and take my order. The wait was so long that I was leaning toward walking out. When the waitress got around to me, she was friendly, and recommended a tasty dish. The entree, a noodle plate with shrimp stuffed dumpling, was good, as mentioned, but the noodles on one portion of the plate were stuck together. It did have a good flavor.

Lulu's is affordable, though it's a little more than Zaw's, while offering food that is at best almost as good as Sq Hill's premier takeout place.

Fashionable Pan-Asian – This is a nice example of high quality Pan-Asian cuisine. The food is fresh, and there is a concerted effort to infuse different interesting flavors within traditional dishes. But this is not for those looking for high quality Asian cuisine, which perfects the basics according to tried and true recipes. In particular I found the won tons and spicy chicken dishes to be quite disappointing. The restaurant has a noisy, but charming, atmosphere with courteous and quick service.

best noodles, ever. – Oh lulu's, how I love thee...I have yet to be let down by the staff, the food or the company. I don't imagine I ever will be. Where else can one get such an amazing amount of fantastic food for so little. I'll tell you: Nowhere.

Amazing Options – I've been eating at Lu Lu's Noodle for about 7 years now and have yet to be disappointed with the food. There are few other restaurants in this area of the city that compare to catering to the vegetarian crowd as well as meat eaters. Great value as you can usually get 2 meals out of one order. I have eaten there casually as well as had business lunches there. Not the most romantic setting, but if you want good food on a budget, you must consider eating here. The service isn't the greatest, but it doesn't profess to be. If you want gourmet atmosphere, go somewhere else and pay twice as much.

Horrible service – I've been to lu lu's twice each time I had to get up and get a waitress because know one came to take our orders, and we sat there for a very long long time.We Didn't receive any silver ware or napkins ,the family at the table next to us gave us their forks ,they used chop sticks and we did'nt get offered refills,because the waitress never came to the table until the end to give us the bill.the story is a lot worst than what you have read ,just can't write it all.Will never return again ,do not recommend at all.

Good food but – I love going to LuLu's, the food is very good and the menu is imaginative, I just wish they would improve the decor and I wish the wait staff was just a little friendlier and acknowledged you, even if they are busy when you come in.

Quick cheap meal – Lu Lu's is good at what they do, providing a diverse menu of affordable noodle dishes. While I have had some good meals, they have also been offset by some inconsistency in food quality. Given this is a low cost meal, it is a good value. Like the food, I have experienced inconsistent service. Atmosphere is enjoyable with a college feel.

Large portions and a hip atmosphere make this restaurant stand out from other Chinese takeout joints – In Short
There's more to Chinese food than fried rice. Lu Lu's proves this with a menu bursting with authentic Pan-Asian cuisine. Located on trendy South Craig Street, the noodle shop's interior mimics NYC's ultra-chic counterparts via colorful walls, big windows, and interesting noodle-inspired photography. Uncommon dishes like Japanese gyoza and tom kha kai soup lure repeat customers--both college kids and city doctors--weary of General Tso's chicken and sweet and sour pork.

Vegetarians check it out! – Lulu's is the best cheap Asian restaurant a vegetarian could hope for. There is vegetarian sweet and sour soup, which we've never seen anywhere else, vegetarian eggrolls, wontons, and about three fourths of the menu can be made for vegetarians. Plus the green tea ice cream is to die for. One of my favorite restaurants!

best food/worst service – the staff seem almost uninterested in waiting on you. the food is most amazing, though. the best thing i can sugguest is call ahead for takeout and dont be in a hurry. it is such a shame the service is so awful because the resturant is located in such a busy area they really could improve their profits by improving the staff speed.
