Southeast Asian
Little Sister DTLA 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. 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.

    Best bahn mi I’ve ever had. We also very much enjoyed the shaky shaky beef with tomato rice and short rib with bone marrow and baguette. The crispy spring roll was also very meaty. Service was very good - food comes out as ready which works well for the family style set up. Wouldn’t work as well if people are trying to order personal entrees. Special mention for sever Alexandrea who took special care in packing our leftovers even taking time to separately package the remaining bone marrow and baguette from the short rib stew so it wouldn’t get soggy or lost in to the stew.

    Food is always excellent. Service at times is hit or miss. However, in the end the food wins over the hit and miss service.

    Some of our dishes were great, others were ok. There were not proper utensils to serve for family style. The server was pretty unhelpful.

    Food was tasty, but the service was inconsistent with the timing of dishes being delivered and the server was rather brusque with us. Given the price I'd expect more attentiveness by the staff. Place had an energetic and lively vibe to it!

    My partner and I have been multiple times. Food is delicious and portions are great. Would love for the restaurant to add 1-2 more individuals to their team. The person who greeted us checked us in, sat us down and then came back to be our waiter. He did a great job at balancing tasks, but did have to wait a bit for things during our meal and for our check.
