The location is in the Crossroads Art district, the odd shaped warehouse building has been repurposed into a trendy restaurant with a unique fib. The food choices have wonderful flavor and spices...we loved the fact that you are asked do you want the spices mild,...More

The noodles here are fantastic, and I always get the level of spice I ask for. The portion sizes are good for the price!

I get the Drunken Noodles spicy whenever I go here. Great atmosphere, friendly staff and it got so much flavor going on. Spring rolls are great as well. Can't go wrong here.

I really enjoyed my lunch at Lulu's. They were very busy at lunch-time - this place obviously has a loyal following. And I'm not surprised: Service was friendly and excellent. I ordered the Chicken Satay bowl - it was delicious. I would describe Lulu's as...More

We have been to Lulu's many times and will keep going back for their great Thai food. The restaurant is loud, but a very pleasant place to dine.

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.
