Little Sister - Downtown
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. Scott Young along with Chef Tin curates the restaurant's wine and beverage program
with a focus on intriguing labels, both domestically and from around
the world. Craft beer selection includes special batches from The
Brewery at Abigaile, brewed only for the restaurant.
Great place to eat. The fried chicken is yummy. Also the fresh okra.
Stopped in for a quick early dinner. Food was outstanding, everything very prompt. In and put in no time, and left feeling very happy.
The portion seemed less than before, but the price went up. Crazy busy, food was slow to serve. I order Pho, it took over 40 minutes, how is that possible? My food was forgotten, that's what it is to me. Everything else arrived but Pho. Interesting, ha.
The food was delish as usual and even though they were out of some of our favs the other items we got (hot pot with short rib and shrimp and cabbage side) were amazing.
Have been to Little Sister DTLA over 10 times, they consistently perform.
Sat in the front window area
Music was way too loud
Little Sister was so delicious. We had the lemongrass chicken, pork spring rolls and a yummy rice dish, All of it was good. We went for a girls night out and it was perfect.
All I can say is Yum! This was our highlight of the weekend! Can’t Wait to go back. Highly recommend reservations .
It’s best not to gender your greetings to customers. Gender neutral greetings are necessary.
A perfect place to challenge and understand your taste buds. If you don’t like this place, you are simply basic. You’re just basic... find somewhere else to please your mediocre status.
The food was fine, but overpriced, and the service was a little underwhelming.
the space was very dark for lunch
I read good reviews about this restaurant and had been wanting to try it. I enjoy new food experiences and loved the fusion of different Asian regions. I usually don't eat downtown much, but since I took my family there for an event, we chose Little Sisters. Everyone enjoyed the food. Being downtown, probably made it a bit pricer than I would have liked. But the flavors were very tasty although I wish the portions were larger. Overall a great experience.
This place was great. So many places in DTLA are overpriced for what you get and the service is just ok. Little Sister is the exception. Worth every penny and the service was great. Great place to people watch and it’s very lively.
I usually love this place.....Today for lunch we were sat in front of the window with the beating sun, awful. But worse, our food wasn’t put in, 45 minutes later a fussy baby and no lunch.
Love this place so much. But don’t go there because I don’t want it to get any more crowded than it already is.
I satisfied everything. but I said except cilantro. they did not.
Congee is our favorite
Little Sister's amazing food never disappoints. The many dishes are creative and full of flavor with loads of fresh vegies. Many of the dishes have a fair amount of spice. The servers are knowledgeable and will help you make the right selections for you. The green papaya salad and lemongrass chicken are two of my faves, but I've never been disappointed, so experiment and try whatever catches your fancy. Best to get their early or after the lunch hour as it gets LOUD. Reservations strongly recommended!
We had such an amazing meal here NYE. Everything that our server recommended was great and I can’t wait to go back.
Great food. Friendly waiter. Congee better than in Taiwan. Loud music that would have interfered with conversation had I been there with anyone.
We were really disappointed. The service was super slow and the food was not great. The other reviews gave me high hopes but either it was an off night and they were just understaffed - or it's really not as good as promised. Bummed.
It was fantastic! The sesame baguette was insane! I loved the crepe, and the creme brule!!
Superb food. Super friendly yet not overbearing servers. Excellent bar.
A little cramped but the food is so excellent it's worth it.
We love to go every time we're downtown.
Don't miss the chicken / lemongrass.
This upscale creative Vietnamese menu and the execution is off the charts. I’ve never had anything but a spectacular meal, never even a bad dish. Sabrina is the charming manager and, if you’re lucky, your server who knows every corner of the menu. If you are not familiar with Vietnamese cuisine, no worries, they will introduce you to dishes you never dreamed of. This is NOT just a Phó/Bahn Mí place, far beyond. Prepare to be blown away by flavor bombs.
Second time at Little Sister - love pretty much everything we had - dumplings, lemon grass beef, black cod, eggplant, and imperial rolls.
Our first visit and server led us correctly...one rice dish with beef and one noodle. We added steamed dumplings. All was excellent.
they ran out of all the food. they had a surcharge. they didn’t even have rice.
I had the chicken Ban Mi it was very tasty :) Looking forward to going back to try the Shaky Shaky beef!
The food here is FANTASTIC! It’s very flavorful and our server provided outstanding service.
The food is really good. It's good to share family style!
Friends and theater
The food was very good, the service was very friendly. My only recommendation is that the music change, I love rap music but there was a lot of cussing and I would me able to take my parents or my niece there.
if your looking for amazing taste, flavor and good food then look no further. this place will knock your socks off. I keep going back and im never disappointed at all and don't think anybody will be. a must try.
This place is really great. the food is always so good. space is a little tight so as long as you like 'cozy' you're good. the only thing I'd recommend is maybe have sweetener available. we had iced teas and a few people in our party just wanted some sweetener...they gave them these tiny bowls with sugar that maybe was a tablespoon worth. but otherwise service is usually on point, and the food is always amazing.
We love Little Sister. Everything we've had is delicious & prepared beautifully. Interesting flavors & unique dishes. We had their unfiltered Sake. Also excellent. I don't eat pork so there are lot's of things I can't eat but there's still plenty
Delicious food and great service with a fun ambiance in the heart of downtown.
Little sister is all around win. The attention to detail and taste profile of each dish is incredibly unique. It’s surely becoming my DTLA staple.
