I've heard so many good things about this little restaurant but had never made it there. Yesterday, I met a girlfriend for lunch and was delighted to find it met all my expectations! Great atmosphere, delicious lunch entrees and great service! It is a busy spot for lunch so plan accordingly- and parking is a challenge

I personally have a number of food issues, but at Lulu's I can enjoy lunch or dinner without worry. I have taken several friends here and they always have enjoyed the food. With such a great selection and choice options, this makes for a great variety of meal choices. Reasonable price and nice sized portions! Great atmosphere with a variety... More

Lulu's is one of our regular places to grab a great meal. We love Thai, and Lulu's is special. While we enjoy going to different places, we find ourselves going to Lulus half-dozen times a year even though it's not close to our home.

Found this place because we happen to be in the area and review were decent. I've had Thai food all over and this isn't real Thai. I thought I'd go with wonton soup to be safe and it's not even real wonton soup. Wonton is Chinese and it's simple but this was bland. I had to add seasonings to my... More

This charming little restaurant has tons of character. If you're looking for the opposite of a national chain, you will love this place. Very fresh ingredients. Excellent choice for vegetarians, but meat available on virtually every dish. Parking is close. Not ideal to get there for disabled people but doable - no stairs! Just slopes and rough uneven surfaces. Portions... More

My first trip came on a bustling Friday afternoon when it was packed. We waited about 35 minutes for our meal, but it was well worth it. I ordered the Drunken Noodles, and the meal and appetizers were fantastic. So, I returned a second time with the same high expectations. Oh, what a disappointment. We arrived on a Sunday evening...

The day my wife and I moved to Kansas City from Chicago, we tried to locate some Thai food and found LuLu's. My wife got the pad thai and i got the Tom Kha Gai soup. Now, in Chicago we made a point of trying as many Thai places as we could and we found some excellent one: Tac Quick... More

Great, fun restaurant in the arts district. We visited on a Saturday and got there early(6ish) but it quickly had a 30 minute wait. Lots of young people going to a formal dance. We had lettuce wraps and pot stickers for appetizers and they were made with fresh ingredients and plenty for two people. I had a rice bowl and... 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.
