lilli and loo

Lilli and Loo isn't the best Asian restaurant I've eaten in but it's pretty good. The service is prompt and efficient. The food is pretty much standard Asian restaurant fare but there are some delicious surprises such as their warm beef salad, spicy and tangy and nutritious. Their sashimi is melt-in-your-mouth fresh and one of the best bargains in New York at $12.95. And their fresh fruit drinks are delicious and refreshing, especially something called lemongrass limeade which I could drink by the gallon -- it's that good.

The nice interior certainly gave me some hope, but the food was at best mediocre. I ordered from the Lunch menu which might have compounded the problem, but any half way decent restaurant would not have its customers eat this stuff. It seems that what they offered you was what you would get from the $5.00 menu (everything included) from a hole in the wall Chinese place that serviced "the more food the better" crowd, but in a nice surrounding (I only had one bite of the "Beef" which suspiciously tasted like can). In any event, since I frequent restaurants pretty much based on the food, they certainly wil not see me again.

I am gluten free and came to this restaurant because I heard that they had a gluten free menu. I chose gf pad thai thinking that it would be as I remembered regular pad thai or better. I was very disappointed. The food was not very good. My non gf friend also ordered an appetizer and main dish and she was disappointed also, so it just wasn't the gf food. Definitely will not eat here again.

Couldn't have been better. Walked in after 8PM, no reservation and were seated immediately. The service, the sushi, and the fact that a lot of restaurants were closed made this a very unique find. No complaints at all, wonderful, full menu, also gluten free.

We decided to order from a new Chinese restaurant and came upon lilli and loo. What a disappointment! Both dishes we ordered lacked any kind of flavor. The portion sizes were good but I ate about a quarter and the rest went to waste. I tried to add soy sauce to it and it didn't help. Very bland. Regretfully, we won't be ordering out again.

I loved the moo shoo chicken and fruit smoothie. Great food.

Loved this place. Tasty gluten free food, gluten free bier, nice interior and good service. Definitely a place I would recommend to everybody - with or without gluten. Love.
