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

Stopped by for lunch on a weekday and it was packed but still got right in. Lunch was great, service was great!

We really enjoy eating at Lulu's every time we are in Kansas City. The meal usually arrives quickly and the ingredients are fresh and delicious. I love that it's high-quality without a huge price. We highly suggest this for lunch or dinner!

First time to try Lulu’s Noodles - called and placed a takeaway order of green curry tofu, tempura veggies and sticky mango rice. First and foremost - I found the staff to be snarky…kind of like they were doing me a favor by taking my order and they seemed bothered that I would think to request extra spice on the... More

The Pad Thai was the only decent dish we ordered but it was too salty so had to eat with white rice. Pineapple fried rice was terrible as the rice was not fully cooked! Tum yum soup was too salty. Green curry chicken was just okay. Oh and the papaya salad was completely bland like someone forgot to add any... More

Had a great dinner last Friday night. It was busy, but the service was attentive and our glasses never even got half empty. Delicious appetizers and entrees, all at a very reasonable price.

Number of street vendors with everything from fine art, pottery, jewelry, photos, and many other avenues. Lulu's was the place to eat according to granddaughter and able to walk in and... More

Visited Lulu's for the first time this past weekend -- why haven't I been there sooner?!? Look -- I've been to Thailand myself, so I know what authentic Thai is. Lulu's has a great modern twist on classic authentic Thai, and it is wonderful! We started with an order of crab rangoon, and it was crisp and flavorful. Then I... More

I have heard of great things about Lulu's Thai Noodle Shop. My parents are from Thailand and I've visited Thailand multiple times, so I've had my rounds of authentic Thai foods. Brought my parents to eat here while they were helping move in for college and can safely say we were all very disappointed. The Pad Thai was very greasy... 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.
