We have gone to Lui Lui for quite a few years and we are always pleased with the quality of their food. When dining in, they provide a pleasant atmosphere and great service. We particularly like their crab cakes and their salmon. We often pick up food and take it home.

Very solid and appealing restaurant in Athens. Find fewer students and more families, alums, and visitors here versus downtown. Quite a mix of seafood, meat, lamb & steak, pasta, some Chinese dishes, vegetarian, etc. They have sushi starting at 4:30 PM for dinner, but we did not get and I typically worry a bit about sushi from a place that...

Food is delicious, I've been coming here since I was a kid, and the place offers a great combo of atmosphere, local food and ingredients, and also international flavors. Never not a treat to go here-- Shrimp Tortellini and Tomato Soup are to die for!

The food here is both tasty and healthy. The menu is varied and the specials are great. If you have a suggestion for management, regarding food or wine, thy will be done. The wine we enjoy was added to the menu and options have been made gluten free that aren't on the menu. The owners and staff work to make... More

Was directed here by a fellow traveler. Arrived for dinner, although the food was fine, service was spotty, menu items were pricey and the AC was not working and it was insufferably warm. I was hoping for more based on reviews.

This is a tucked away little place that has great food! I had Mongolian Beef and my husband had Shrimp Tortellini and we were both impressed with how good our meals were. Additionally, our server was very attentive to us. This is a unique little place that will surprise you!

We went with cousins for dinner while visiting family in Athens. Loved the menu, pan-Asian with modern American accents, and the fresh, soothing atmosphere. Also, have a nice wine list and prices for everything were very moderate. The only thing stopping me from giving it a 5-star is my chicken tikka was a bit dry. We would definitely return.

The food is really good but I think it's a little overpriced. The new owner now charges for the small salads that used to come with the entrees free. The general Tso is really good but it's hard to justify spending $13 on it with no salad. The lunch portion is cheaper but much smaller. Service is hit and miss.... More

It took a while to get our food (and there were only 2 other people here). The food was good, but it was kind of high priced. We probably won't come back but glad we tried it.

Locally sourced ingredients make this place stand out. Exceptional menu. Amazing flavor combinations. Staff was very knowledgable and enthused about the quality aspects of the meal preparation. I left feeling very satisfied and full. Great value for the quality and range of offerings.
