    They have a huge gluten free menu and everything I ate was so good. The sauce for the spring rolls is amazing and my drunken noodles had a lot of flavor. I also ate the Thai hot wings which were delicious (and if you get 4 wings you’re getting 4 FULL wings so it’s actually like getting 8 wings at most places) but I had a panic because I forgot to ask if they were fried separately after ordering and eating them (obviously dumb on my part), but everything seems to be fine today. I would ask to clarify if you order them though, I may have just gotten lucky. Half way through the meal, our waitress changed and the new one must have known that I was GF because she specified before I asked that I could eat the fortune cookies, so there’s good communication there!

    Most items on the menu are gluten free but the specific gluten free menu made it very clear what substitutions to make. I had the drunken noodles—yummy and no issues. The waiter was nice and said he’s tell the kitchen staff I’m gluten intolerant (a tiny bit annoying because I specifically said “I had celiac disease” but I know that’s just semantics).

    They get it. Plain and simple. Separate menu with TONS of options, many of which did not need any modifications to be made GF. I ordered off of the GF menu, but our knowledgeable server informed me that if I wanted to taste my husband's dish, I could do so safely, as his was GF too - even though he has no gluten issues. These days I really appreciate an educated staff when it comes to these things. Almost as importantly, the food was delicious and the price very reasonable. Will definitely be back.

    I felt very comfortable here. dedicated menu with substitutions listed if needed. The pad Thai was great. I didn't care for the blazing wok bowl as it was only hot and I didn't taste any other depth. Others may want this, but it just wasn't for me.

    MANY of their items can be made gluten free - just by using a different brand of soy sauce. A GREAT restaurant.

    I've eaten here a billion times over the years and I only barely recommend it. Years ago, I loved it when gf items were scarce. But I've had shoddy service, gotten glutened more than once, and had a waitress huff at me about wanting some extra tamari. The food isn't consistent in quality or spice level and the service is spotty at best. You also risk getting glutened, depending on what you order. Go to Sweet Siam on the Kansas side instead.

    The food was decent. Not the best Thai I've ever had. We ordered the mango sticky rice for dessert and but couldn't get it because they said the sous chef went home.

    I had a TERRIBLE experience here. I have celiac and had been ordering here with my family for about 3 months at least once a week for carry out. My children who are 11 and 4 also have celiac and we initially liked their gf menu. On Mother's Day we ordered carry out and my husband picked up the order. When I opened my meal I noticed it wasn't' labeled GF so I decided to call and verify. The lady on the phone verified my fears that it had been made wrong and proceded to tell me that even though my husband was willing to make the 15 minute drive back that they weren't willing to accomodate me because they were closed. I told her it was my Mother's Day dinner and that I could hear a full restaurant of people but she refused. I hung up frustrated and hungry. My husband called back and explained that we were regular patrons and convinced them to remake the order. When he returned home I ate and noticed that it tasted a little different. In hindsight I should have stopped and realized this was a clue that something was different butter I was so hungry that I didn't. That night, I was as sick as I have been in years with a full on gluten attack that lasted into the next day. I am certain that the kitchen remade the meal with regular soy on purpose because we inconvenienced them by asking them to make the meal again after hours. Never mind the fact that it was wrong to begin with. I am just grateful that my children did not share or they also would have been terribly sick. We will NOT EVER patronize this place again. If you have celiac, go with caution. I question a place that would handle something so serious in such a careless manner.

    I am Celiac, and very reactive to the least bit of gluten. I have been eating at LuLu's almost weekly for the past year and a half. I have ordered many items from their very extensive GF menu without experiencing any adverse reactions. The wait staff takes extra care with my ordering, and the kitchen staff is very attentive to proper handling and preparation of my food. I can't say enough good things about my dining experiences at LuLu's. Even the atmousphere is great! For a real treat, try the shrimp and pineapple fried rice!
