We were in a hurry, living for the airport. We need to have a quick lunch in Oakland, so, we decide to go to Lulu’s Noodle. The place is very basic for lunch during the week: you pick your menu item, you pay and somebody bring your food at your table. Very basic. The menu did not change since a long time (probably several years). The food is very basic with big portions. We try a noodle dish (pad thai) and a soup (udon soup). Both dishes were good while this is not the best asian food we ever tried.
What he said
Good average place if you like and enjoy asian-type cuisine, Lulu’s can be a nice place to go if you are hungry. Also very good if you are in a hurry, this might not be a good spot for a romantic setup.
What she said
I had a big bowl of Pho on a cool day just before a long flight. This lunch served the purpose of offering hydration and nutrients at a decent price. There are plenty of other, better, noodle places in Pittsburgh. So I would not make a special trip for LuLu’s Noodles. However, I would be willing to go for lunch with friends. The place is acceptable, but nothing more.
