Good Thai food with multiple vegan options - Edit

Ask for the No Meat menu. It has all their vegan options as well as how to make certain things vegan. Lots of options, great tasting food, neat place. Only complaint was portion sizes for the money, but that won’t keep me from coming back here for some Pad Thai!

Pros: Tasty food, Cute atmosphere, Separate No Meat menu

Cons: Pricey for portion sizes, Parking

we were given chicken instead of tofu - Edit

New Year’s eve dinner was ruined by a manager in training that didn’t know how to ring up vegetarian lettuce wraps, an item on the menu. It’s very hard to tell if it’s chicken or tofu when it’s all mixed in. We were offered a free lettuce wrap for our next visit. Why would I want that again? We wrote them an email asking for our money back with no response. Very inconsistent food quality as well.

Upcharges for vegan/vegetarian substitutions - Edit

They upcharge vegetarian or religious substitutions (like tofu for chicken) on the lunch menu and perhaps other "special" menus. I know it's not due to ingredient cost, since they don't upcharge for this substitution on the normal menu. The staff also didn't seem to care about how this policy makes it seem like Lulu's doesn't value its vegetarian and religious minority customers. They did not empathize or problem solve. It's a shame, because I really like the food, but I also like to be treated fairly.

Also, separately, they cannot for the life of them consistently make decent bubble tea. Perhaps 20% of the time they get it right and the rest of the time the pearls are really unpleasant.

Pros: Food tastes good

Cons: Upcharge vegetarian substitutions on some menus, Don't order the bubble tea, Not the nicest staff around

Great place to go with non-vegans! - Edit

I went here with family (non-vegans) and found it pretty easy to order vegan! Of course, ask for no egg or fish sauce, these are the common things snuck in the food. My waiter happened to ask me if I'd like to leave those out after I asked for tofu as the protein option. They were very considerate!

Pros: Great wait staff, Decent amount of vegan options

Cons: A little pricey for small portions

Good food, a little expensive for what you get. - Edit

Not our favorite Thai food in KC (that would be Thai Place), but the food is good... and it's a fun location near other options for a night out.

They have several apps, rice options, noodle dishes, and curries all vegan... and many more that can be made vegan. Ask for their allergen menu, it lists everything that is either OK or can be made that way by removing something simple.

Pros: Consistently good food, Fun location

Cons: Never "GREAT" food, Higher price than other Thai in KC
