Southeast Asian
Little Sister Redondo Beach features East-meets-West inspired dishes served in a
relaxed social environment that feels more residential than
restaurant, as if you're being invited into the Chef Tin's home.
Little Sister's menu showcases Chef Tin's take on one of the more
interesting and rich collisions of food and culture that was borne out
of the European colonization of Southeast Asia. Dishes blend and
balance the spices and flavors of Southeast Asia with French
techniques and Dutch and British colonial influences. The menu is
continually and progressively evolving, reflecting inspiration and the
seasons. "Little Sister Redondo Beach offers straight-up, honest, home-style Vietnamese cuisine—the type of food I grew up eating with my grandparents in the San Gabriel Valley.”

    The staff was attentive and pleasant. The ambiance was very nice and quiet on a Monday night. The only downside to the evening was my chicken dish. It was probably the driest, toughest chicken I have ever tried to eat.... The skin was nice an crispy as it should have been but the meat itself was hard and dry and tough to cut... The other dishes I tried were good... Avoid the chicken...

    Food was excellent. They made us wait 30 minutes for our 7:30pm reservation which was not excellent.

    I’ve been to Little Sister two times and service was terrible each time but not as bad as the second time. The servers were acting like they didn’t want to serve us until we complained and the tables were filthy. There was a table across from us that didn’t get cleaned the entire time we were there. Our table had a bunch of sticky spots that were hard to see initially because it was so dark inside. Because of this, I sat my phone down in a sticky mess (the residue from the previous table). Unsanitary. Food was mediocre for the price. It was better the first time I went but they aren’t consistent.

    Sadly this was a disappointing birthday dinner. They were terribly understaffed (I guess). The bartender was also our waiter. He was too busy behind the bar to give good service. Had to wait 15 min to have our order taken. Although he did say food would come out as it is cooked, all of the dishes came out besides mine. We had to ask about it and the waiter said it was coming. Again we waited an additional 15-20 mins before mine came out. My husband had finished. So I had just had a few bites of mine, and asked for some boxes. My husband was never offered more coffee, we had to flag down another server to get some, and then wait awhile until they brought it. Overall a very disappointing dinner. Food was pretty good.

    Cameron our server was amazing. The food was delicious and the music was on point. Definitely recommend this restaurant. The sticky rice was to die for. We also ordered the popular dish shaggy meat but I wasn’t a huge fan but I can see why it’s a favorite.

    We go to Little Sister because the food is so different and so outstanding! We absolutely love the menu choices! We go about once a month so that it stays special for us. That said, we are troubled by the inconsistency in the service. This visit, we were seated after a large group left. We remained unserved for at least ten minutes while couples on either side of us were served. We finally were served by a very nice, polite server who took our starter order and then came back to open and pour our wine. She offered to take our dinner order after pouring the wine, which we gave to her. A few minutes later, our first entree came out, before the starter. We were confused, as was the food runner, so she took the plate back. Our starters arrived several minutes later, and within a couple of minutes, a server returned with our "held" entree. We gave up and told her to put it down as we finished our starter. We then ate the first entree, and then waited many minutes for our next entree. It finally arrived and we enjoyed it. For whatever reason, there always seems to be substantial confusion around what food orders go to what table and when. I wish they could figure out a system that made the quality of the service approach the quality of the food. The food was great, the service was not. Go to Little Sister for great food, but don't expect great service.

    Nice environment and indoors was appreciated given the cold evening! Food is always great. Service acceptable other than the fact one of our initial dishes was not put in until we re-ordered a different plate resulting in an over extended table experience due the extended delay. Other than that awesome as always.

    Although they’ve changed their hours (not open for lunch) and menu (shorter) I still enjoy eating here. I went for happy hour on my birthday. The servers are very polite and helpful, the specialty drink menu is interesting and the food is always very good. Everytime I eat there my group always enjoys the uniqueness of the cuisine. I recommend it.
