I am so sad. I've been coming to LuLu's for over 20 years. It was my all-time favorite. However tonight it wasn't any better than mall food. The crab rangoon, my favorite, was thin and lacked flavor, the General Tso Chicken sauce was runny, and the service was lacking. I am so disappointed!

We love eating at Lulu's! Delicious, authentic food at very reasonable prices. Their egg rolls, crab Rangoon and lo mein are the best in Cincinnati! They now accept visa and MasterCard and the service was great!

We have been going to Lulu's for several years and always have enjoyed our meals. A recent visit was no exception. My wife had Pepper Steak, and asked for added onions. She got them. I always order one of three things and this time decided to try a low mein dish for the first time. I don't know that I... More

My filipino wife had heard that they had really good Asian cuisine here, so we have it a try. It's a very small restaurant in a strip mall across the street from Burlington Coat Factory and Value City Furniture. Old decor made the place appear dirty, but a closer check showed it was just dated. Waitress was friendly enough with... More

LuLu's offers a variety of Asian dishes. The food is tasty and fresh. The atmosphere is quite casual and simple. The staff is friendly and attentive. They don't take credit cards...

We have come to this restaurant for years and it is always excellent. We always enjoy the Hunan chicken and chicken fried rice. The egg rolls are the best around.

We have been going to this restaurant since it was called China Wok. Then they changed the concept to Lulu's and it has been fantastic through the first two owners. Huge quantities and superior quality. Well, we moved away from the Cincinnati area and have returned for a visit. Apparently there has been a recent change in ownership and it... More

Used to go here very often when I worked nearby. Great food. Thousands of times better than Noodles & Co. Great selection of dishes, lots of noodle soups, vegetarian dishes, and such. They will make food to order if not on the menu, but you can tell them what you want. Very friendly staff, quick service. The servings are huge.

Showed up at 9pm.... The workers were still inside but the door was locked. Lights off too.... We drove from the west side of town.... I would understand if it were 920pm....... I've never had this happen from a reputable establishment.....

I work close by and a coworker introduced me to this place. No frills. Just great food. I've been twice now and had the cashew chicken both times. No complaints, but just remember to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards.
