We had an amazing Christmas dim sum meal! We had curry noodles, cilantro tofu, pork and shrimp dumplings, salt and pepper shrimp and pork buns. The service was great and they were able to help us make our selections. Can’t wait to go back!

I go to Lu Lu primarily for their dim sum on the weekends. There are usually Groupons available, where you can save a few bucks. Their dim sum is the traditional push-cart type where you can actually see the dishes before selecting them. The only...More
