    Variety of choices in menu. I’ve tried many of the dishes they offer and they’ve all been good. Large dining room, so you don’t feel “on top of” the other diners. Service was great. Noise level was low. Easy to have conversation.

    There was one wait person for the entire dining room. She was completely frazzled. We had to ask several time for salad dressing. She never brought it, so we had to find the hostess and ask her for it. In addition, the waitress was very loud and obnoxious. It’s not her fault for the restaurant being understaffed, but it was a less than ideal dining experience

    Used to be better. Food seems a little stale. No bread and a favorite entree has left the menu. Entryway looked like it could use some upkeep and had an odor. Prices seem to have gone way up/ The facility looks like it needs some updating.

    Worst experience ever! Food was awful! Put us on the second floor and elevator broke down-waited over an hour for fire department to get my handicapped daughter down. Staff never apologized or followed up to see how we were. Would never go back. I would appreciate someone should contact us to discuss this disaster.

    For Mother’s Day dinner, the only option was the buffet which was $45 per person. The food was not great, mostly dried out and over cooked. We were hoping to order off the menu, which we’ve had good luck with in the past.

    We arrived and got seated immediately. Waitress was courteous and attentive. Only option on this day was the buffet, so no ordering from the menu, buffet was average at best and cost per person was unbelievable ($45). I’ll not be returning.

    We held our monthly girls lunch at J.Liu of Worthington and had an enjoyable time. Our server, JoJo, was very attentive and made great recommendations. I ordered the sesame chicken, and JoJo offered to have it wok-fried instead of deep-fried. I liked the healthier choice and was so pleased with it! The portion was generous, and I finished it the next day for lunch. Everyone ordered something different and were all happy with their orders. We can't wait to come back again!

    The flavor of the food the last couple of times when we have visited hasn't been the best. I think the kitchen is overwhelmed and which effects the quality of the food.

    We dined early (4:00 pm reservations). Place was relatively empty. We were seated next to the Bar. Our server was great, very accommodating and paid attention to us. Another server walks in and talks so loudly (really loudly) to a person at the bar in total disregard to us (and as if we were not there). The food quality was pretty good but arrived warm at best. Not that the kitchen was busy!; makes you wonder if the food was pre-prepared and all they did was warm it before they served it and obviously did not warm it enough. I wouldn't have expected this at such a restaurant. The Mongolian beef should have come hot (temperature wise), the rice was barely warm. The Tuna Poke bowl was cold! I think the Dublin location is better than the Worthington location

    We were celebrating a birthday with family. I made the reservation online a month ago. We were anticipating ordering from the menu due to dietary restrictions but came to find out it was an Easter brunch & you could not order off menu. This was not noted on the restaurant website or on door of restaurant prior to entering. It was extremely expensive & our bill was $400 including tip. The food was just okay, however service was good, so no issues there. J Lui Management should have posted Easter brunch menu, as there was another large party who came in & left after hearing that news. Our party was very disappointed as we were trying restaurant for the very first time. And then to pay $45 per person was truly extreme. Not sure if we’ll go back.

    Welcomed back after a long (2 year) hiatus for the brunch buffet. Recognize it was Easter brunch and crazy busy, but they weren’t quite keeping up with demand. Plates on the buffet were dirty. Bacon severely undercooked (some raw)in the buffet pan. Salad toppings in the bottom of the bowl; needed tossed. Overall, mostly decent food and good experience (our server was great); but not up to pre-Covid standards. Will go back tho, think they just have some kinks to work out.
