LOVE Lulu's dumplings and their happy hour is the best! I have been there several times and if I ever have anything wrong- once my food came out with something that I had asked them to leave out due to allergies and they fixed the problem immediately! The whole place has such a great atmosphere, my fianc and I go there for our date nights all the time

I have never been so insulted as i was right now at Lula's. I ordered a to go order and it was wrong so they told me to come back to get the right order. When i get there the manager or who ever this person was goes onto to tell me that he can not give me my order due to a list of people that they have that always makes complaints or something to that effect. I was like excuse me what are you talking about??? He said they went off my first name not first and last name but first name only and the first 3 digits of my phone number this is how they determined it was me. I have never ever made any complaints about anything the 3 times I have been there in the past. I really like their food. Oh and also he told me this came down from the owner's mouth........I am looking at him like is this some kind of a joke!! I have never heard of any restaurant ever doing that to someone and especially when I have never made a complaint about anything but bragged to other people about their food. In fact I just told some of my family to go there. So needless to say they got my money and I have the wrong order and I am on a "do not serve hit list" . So be careful for those of you who might have an issue of any kind for some reason if you go there. I would not want to make that list either!!!!! The girl that took my order admitted she messed it up and was very apologetic to me when I went back to get my correct order. I am a Hispanic female and I am really starting to believe this was discrimination act towards me. Really.....am I the only Angela with the first 3 cell numbers starting with 504....apparently according to THE LIST!!
Well I did up getting my Thai food for dinner because alot of my friends told me to go to the Thai Place in Westport and it was awesome and environment was great. Oh and guess what they have never evern heard of such a list......yes I had to tell them about......HA!!

Was at Lulu's Noodles last night and it was one of the worst experiences ever. Service -- non existant. And there was practically no one in the restaurant. Had to actually go find a server to place an order. Then the server disappeared

So, I love a good international meal just like you. Spicy, tangy, tropical, lush--all that good stuff. I like it when a tasty morsel sweeps me away to...somewhere other than KC, know what I mean?

The Green Curry is great. But that's about it. The Pad Thai is so embarrassing that I may never even go back for the Green Curry. Lulu's USED to be a hot spot. Now it's just a run of the mill "has been". The recipes have changed and not in good way. The Pad Thai literally tasted like fish and salt; completely unappealing.

I agree with one of the other posts: there is no "medium". Just mild or burn your face off.

Pros: The Green Curry is delish

Cons: WORST PAD THAI IN TOWN

This is a fun hip place. Love the atmosphere and the people are nice. Too bad I dont live here or I would be at Lulus all the time. I am actually gonna miss it.....Love the food and drinks! Only order Blazing if you can handle super hot....I can barely handle regular hot there....

I've eaten the Yellow Curry at Lulu's several times, so obviously I enjoy it. In my experience the food is pretty mild. I order it "blazing" and I'm not a spicy food stud. Some have written that the food isn't authentic. My brother (lives in Portland) toured Thailand by bicycle and had a lot of local food. He doesn't think any of the Thai restaurants here in the U.S. are very authentic, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. Consider it Thai inspired, if you must. It has a nice dining atmosphere and the prices aren't bad. Now I'm hungry -- I think I'm going to call in an order!

but not great. The dishes are kind of lacking in flavor and the noodle soups aren't hearty. I've been here several times to give it another try but have always been disappointed. I don't think it's very authentic either.

Lulu's has a great variety of traditional Thai dishes that even the most hesitant of eaters will love. The pad Thai is delectable, and the prices are reasonable.

Lulu's has wonderful Thai food. If you're looking for authentic Thai food, then you need to try this place out. Their Pad Tai is wonderful as is their Thai iced tea. A great place to go!

This little restaurant has a great atmosphere and even better food. The first time I went there was for lunch... they have great specials and the portions (and prices!) are just right.

Wow. The atmosphere of Lulu's is charming, hip, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable and the food came out lightning fast! I got the Wild Mushroom Curry with tofu and absolutely loved it. It's packed with veggies and a good variety of mushrooms and just enough spice. My server on this visit was Crystal, she was attentive and funny amidst the chaos of the midweek lunch rush. This is a great place, check it out!

Pros: Service, food, ambiance, character

Cons: I did have to move my car or it would be towed. Don't park in the Shiraz lot!

I got there about 45mins before they closed and the server Crystal could not have been less attentive. Even the couple that walked in after me had to ask for water and their bill. I was excited to try this place out. On a good friend's recommendation I ordered the Blazon Wok Bowl w/beef. I thought by ordering it "Med Hot" it would be somewhere between mild and hot?med hot. My food came out promptly which made up for the wait to place my order. When I saw the steaming hot bowl heavily decorated with dark green jalapeno slices I thought, oh! These are the kind of peppers that aren't hot. I was wrong. After blowing my nose incessantly at the table, (I actually had to go to the bathroom twice to wash my hands), sweating, and my lips feeling like they were "blazing," I realized I couldn't taste anything I was eating. I am Hispanic so I can take a little lot, but I counted 20, yes 20 slices were in this lunch bowl!!! I like hot, but damn! Not that hot. Just to be sure I asked Crystal...hey Crystal....hey, over here Crystal, for the menu, just to see if I had somehow missed the recommendation of ordering this dish with a fire extinguisher...nope, not there. If you need a good detox, hurry, get to LuLu's!!

I travel a lof for business and I spent 10 years on the West Coast where you find lots of authentic Thai, not the 'americanized' stuff you find in many Chinese restaurants, etc. My friends took me here during a visit when i was in KC on biz; the flavors were amazing to me! Never had I expected to find decent Thai food anywhere in the Midwest. Next time back in town, I made sure I went to Lulu's again and had the same wonderful experience. If only there was a way for them to expand the menu. (sigh)

The food is terrific, the service is fast AND friendly - awesome, eclectic and FUN staff - and the atmosphere lends itself to a good time. I am moving to KC in August and I think this will be the place I ask a few friends to take me for my "Welcome to KC" dinner! I love this place and plan on being a regular!

I really like this place! The food is great and available for takeout. Plus, personally I think it tasts much better as leftovers since the spices have had a chance to sink in. Definitely worth the drive..
