Easter brunch! Don't miss out.
Sunday, April 1, 2018
Great place. Food well prepared and fresh.
Great place for brunch too, who'd knew. Good congee, but flavors are not as bold as it sounds, I didn't get any salted cod in my crab congee but it taked wonderful. I'm not a fan of the Chinese savory donut, it's not supposed to be dense like a donut, needs to be light, lots of air pockets.
They forgot to put in my meal and I had to wait 30 minutes after my friends finished their meal. They said it was coming multiple times before I realized they never actually put the order in.
Visited Friday lunch. It was way too loud. You can literally hear the conversations from the next tables as if they are part of your party.
We had to ask to change our table to the window tables to our server. And the hostess gave us the “dirty look”. Excuse me? We literally kindly asked if it’s okay to move within the 5min after we sat down. We didn't even order at that moment. The table next to window was empty so we moved after we talked to our server. What is the problem with the hostess? She was NOT welcoming AT ALL.
The food took forever to come out although we ordered the same dishes, one came out and had to wait a long time until the other one came... I’ve been to Little Sisters DTLA for many many times but I must to say this was the WORST experience by far ...won't go back.
We travel to LA 5-6 times a year and this is by far the best restaurant we have eaten at. An absolute must, the food is fantastic.
Waitress was very rude to my girlfriend and I. Definitely treated us differently from the table next to us. Our experience with the waitress will prevent us from going back.
Food is great and never disappoints. Great hidden gem in the heart of DTLA.
Food was very good, a lot of vibrant flavors , tasty and unique. Service was ok but not great.
Delicious food. Never disappoints
Really great food! It was an excellent recommendation from a frien.
Fresh taste and delicious food. Tables are tight and too close to others and the music is loud.
We drove here all the way from Orange County to try the pho spring rolls. We order that + 2 other entrees and waited. Our entrees came before our appetizers (25-30 mins after seating) then we questioned about our appetizer. The waitress who took our order never came by to check on us to see if we received all our orders. We flagged down a different server who went to check. About 45 minutes after seating, our original waitress comes by and says sorry because they were sold out of the pho spring rolls. We were really unhappy with the service. Had we known earlier the appetizer was sold out, we would’ve chosen something else. We ended up opting for the spring roll which wasn’t that great. Mind you, we live in OC where Vietnamese cuisine is on every block. The sole purpose of driving to LA was to try that one dish but that was an ultimate fail.
Incredible food! I want to go back to Little Sister and try everything on the menu.
Really delicious, fun and friendly place. Very busy - def need reservations. Also very loud. But the food and staff made it worth it. Each of the dishes was different from other people V. food restaurants and delicious.
We had an amazing dinner with great service. Ordered multiple plates and the waitress timed each plate perfectly.
Was a bit disappointed with the overall experience. Flavors were inventive and thoughtful. Coursing of food was all out of whack. I got my dish about 15 minutes before my friends. We be fine if we knew they were going to serve as a shared-plate approach. We didn't order that way. They were all out of the beers on menu, except two or three. A server mistakenly put down another table's dish on our table. We didn't touch it. But then realized he had made a mistake about 5 minutes after the fact and proceeded to take it to the right table, instead of properly taking it back to the kitchen to have it remade. Won't be going back unfortunately.
Casual, Asian style. Great for family style dining. Very unique, flavorful, and interesting menu items. Small, fun . Good bar. Service is excellent. Highly recommend.
Great food, service and ambiance
Fantastic as always, nothing else out there like it. Great for traditional flavors and for new combinations. It’s modern Vietnamese food with complete authenticity.
Likely the best Vietnamese food my wife and I have ever had. truly spectacular. The imperial rolls were terrific. The lamb curry was astonishingly excellent. And the bread pudding/banana dessert was ridiculously delicious.
The place is very busy, so you will want to make reservations rather than take your chances as a walk-in.
The only annoyance is the 3% charge added on to the bill for the cost of doing business in LA, like that was an unforeseen surprise. It's not a large amount, but list your charges as charges, rather than sneaking them in under the fine print.
Fantastic. Went once, fell in love, and have been back multiple times. No matter what I order, it’s always amazing.
We ordered several dishes and each was one was incredibly flavorful and radically different from each other. There were multiple other items that we could have ordered--I love it when that happens! The pace of service was perfect and the waitress was enthusiastic and helpful
Service was Ok. food came out late
We went to Vietnam in January of 2018 for 3 weeks and traveled from Hanoi to Saigon and Phu Quoc. So we have had some experience with Vietnamese Cuisine and restaurants. We were very put off by the high prices for drink and food, as well as, the limited selection of menu items at Little Sister. The atmosphere of the place was casual and nothing special We walked out of the place and did not eat there. Nuff said.
We loved it! If you have a short time limit, beware, service is slow at times. Perhaps mention prior to ordering so they can help you with choices that may be ready quickly.
Having just been in Vietnam within the last year with my friend, we both immediately compared one of their fish options to a particular night while dining out in Southeast Asia. Authentic is an understatement for both that dish as well as everything else ordered. Superb quality of ingredients, and with freshness that would make one guess the chefs were actually growing their own herbs/spices somewhere in the back. And for a city like LA with tons of "Asian" cuisine options, Little Sister stands out without having to rely on the buzz and craze of something like Bottega Louie across the street.
Delicious! Was valentines and busy but rather well attended to. We love the lobster! All was so good about 4th time there. Plan to go more and work around the menu. When you want something a little different from the norm
Little Sister never disappoints. The food was great as was the service. It's always crowded around 1pm so the noise level is a bit high. This is a popular place so make sure you have reservations otherwise you'll wait forever.
Saturday 9p. Baguette and papaya salad could have been skipped. They were out of all the veg options(?!). Autumn rolls were good but where was the squash? Fried e-fu noodles, steamed cod were the best. Great service. Would return if in the area but order different things
the service and the quality food went down tremendously since dtla location has opened. it was like eating at a hole in a wall restaurant in chinatown, except for the price, which was dtla
Little Sister is my favorite place to dine in LA! Food is always top notch!
I've been to Little Sister many times, and I always love the food. My most recent visit was disappointing, (though the food was still fabulous.) The noise level for an early evening dinner was unbearable. I appreciate a lively energy, but it's a small, crowded space - is it really necessary to blast music at a ridiculously high volume? It's a restaurant, not a nightclub. Conversation was very difficult and uncomfortable, and we left hoarse from shouting. Also, the staff seemed to want to get us out in a hurry, hovering over our table, all-too-eager to remove our plates before we were finished. The food at Little Sister is among the best I've found in DTLA, so I'm hoping my recent experience was simply a rare off-night.
Little Sister is always a treat but their service, while friendly, is incredibly slow. The table next to us waited a half hour just to get water, and our appetizer took almost that long to come (fresh spring rolls). However, it is absolutely delicious and worth the wait if you’re willing to be a little patient for some great food.
Food was horrible. A meal I have ordered at least twenty times and never has it rated this bland or soggy. The waiter even acknowledged it was visibly soggy.
My wife and I were on a weekend away from the kids, and Little Sister was a fantastic find in Downtown L.A. The food was delicious; the service was attentive and exceptional. My wife is a little hesitant when it comes to Asian cuisine (I've been trying to slowly break her in for years), but she loved the flavor and the uniqueness of the dishes. Bravo.
Fun bit: The manager noticed me making a "screwy-face" a few minutes into the food, and immediately rushed over to check on us. It turns out my wife and I were just sharing a potty-training story, but I commend her attentiveness. The manager - being a mother as well, and knowing the value of a weekend out alone - bought us a round of wine. Such a nice gesture.
The only downside - besides the tables being a little tight - was the music. It was a mix of loud, unintelligible "mumble-rap" that didn't quite fit with the scene, and it was a few decibels too high. If they made a little adjustment there, you'd pretty much have the perfect spot.
Side note: It is small, and therefore busy... but there is a large, open-air tavern literally next door where you can go grab a drink while you wait, and they'll text you when your table is open.
Thanks for a wonderful evening out.
The food is amazing and we enjoyed the experience.
The food is a thoughtful update on traditional Vietnamese flavors. The staff were all friendly and every recommendation was excellent. We finished with the red velvet ding dong—by no means rooted in any Southeast Asian I know of—and it was so delicious.
It’s extremely too loud in here. If you like ghetto hip hop, this won’t bother you but if you’re not into it, it’s worse than nails on a chalkboard. The lighting is also terrible. Front of the restaurant is fine but if you’re seated against the wall, be prepared to have terrible shadowing over you. Way too bright and not conducive to a relaxed date vibe. With all this, I still come back for the food. It’s that good.
Great little place. Portions were surprisingly huge. Food was very fresh and tasty.
