Permanently Closed - Little Sister - Manhattan Beach
A restaurant I’ll definitely go again to try other dishes on the menu.
My favorite was the red and black rice dish.
Excellent service and lovely design decor.
I’m also interested to go to their other locations in LA and Redondo Beach
Fantastic and unique foodie finds!
Food is always great! We love coming to Little Sister. The service is great but they don’t have enough staff. They have 2 waiters for the entire restaurant so if you need anything you have to wait! But they are great and very accommodating!
Absolutely loved our experience
Food here is great, the restaurant is small which makes it tough to fit all those great dishes on the table. Other than that I would definitely recommend Little Sister. Dishes are flavorful and delicious.
Great service! A little slow but overall wonderful experience.
The waits for food and Drink have been so long the last few times I’ve been. There is ONE waiter for all the tables
Great date night spot. Fantastic food and friendly staff. Only knock is the tables are very close together.
Very disappointed in the main courses, the timely delivery of food and the inattentiveness of the staff. We were there for a birthday celebration and other than a candle, the birthday girl received zero special attention.
The food was outstanding as always. We were disappointed regarding all the things they ran out of such as the chicken, lamb, coconut! Someone didn’t plan well. But that forced us to try new dishes and we were not disappointed! Great dinner. But the table of 4 next to us was soooo loud!!! I think it must be the acoustics in the room. Thank goodness they left after about 30 mins! Otherwise, the dinner may not have been the same!
Great food, really tasty. Dessert didn’t come after about 10-15 minutes so was cancelled
We ordered around 6 dishes and all were delicious but one that I didn't care for.
Great food. Service a little slow but friendly
A M A Z I N G !!!!
Great meal and good service. There was only one thing that bothered us - it was my birthday, but we said we didn't want the desert. But they added the desert charge to the bill (we got the bill before they even brought out a desert). That was not very cool - if they want to provide a desert for someone birthday, they should comp it, especially if we specifically said no desert. We caught it in time, and they removed it from the bill, and didn't bring the desert.
Very good service and good food!
Would definitely come visit again, maybe next time I’ll try their lunch menu (:
Thank you so much for a wonderful Friday evening!
The food is excellent. Down side is tables are way too close together creating an intrusive atmosphere. Also, way over priced.
The food and sevice was amazing! Specialty drinks (some off the menu) were tasty and the spice on the food was on point.
Splendid food, service excellent, manager did the right thing without being asked when one of our entries arrived very late, kudos for that. Great experience overall.
Great food,service... unique dishes with splendid attention to detail... thanks!
Excellent selections from the menu. Spice hour choices are fewer these days. Love the lobster in fried rice is excellent. The beef selection is incredible.
Hostess called to confirm booking. We had reserved a few months a head. She told us the table was booked after us so we would have limited time. Not happy with being rushed before we even entered the restaurant for our special planned dinner. Don’t recommend .
I received the same call at 4 advising me on my reservation at 7 that the table was booked at 8:45. They also demanded a credit card over the phone which I advised her she could do that through the app. “We don’t have that”. When we showed up for our 7 pm reservation they didn’t have a table. But oh well by the way the restaurant was half empty at 8:45. What a bummer. Lots of other great restaurants in MB. Get it together.
We’ve dined at little sister before, and were very disappointed by this experience - the lobster was beyond overcooked and had no mean
Good as always. I LOVE the Imperial Rolls! But, the lobster was overdone and not a lot of meat for the price.
Service was non-existent. Waitress kept disappearing. Food was not as good as before. Probably won’t be going back.
We ordered and the appetizers came out. The food was extremely delicious. Then the main course came out and everybody was served except my nice. We waited and waited. Finally we called the waitress over and realized the waitress f at I’m to put in a main course order for my nice even though she ordered the fish.
The mood changed. Everyone was enjoying themselves until the waitress messed up my nice’s order. The mood of the table changed. My nice said she did not want the fish.
As we were finishing the main course, my nice’s fish dish came out. She had told the waitress she did not want it and repeated that she did not want the fish.
We ordered desert and the waitress said she had boxed the fish dish for no charge.
After we finished desert she told us desert was free.
When the waitress presented the will, she said desert next time is on me and gave me a free desert card. After she left we realized it was one card for one desert and not free desert for the four people at the table. That is when I really felt CB insulted. Little Sister is one of my favorite restaurants. I felt disrespected who took the mixup as not really her problem. I felt the waitress who was also the manager failed to pay adequate attention to our table and our order. On top of it all, one of the buss boys tried to remove my main course when I had only eaten half the order. At that point, I was upset and disappointed at how we were treated. I am very disappointed with the e service and how we were treated, including the lack of respect over the seriousness of the mistake by the restaurant.
We shared several dishes among 4 people. Everything was different and the flavors were great. Loved the spice on the papaya salad and the bo kho was a favorite with a very flavorful broth. Overall all of the dishes delivered.
Food was ok, some dishes over cooked. Service was terrible. Servers were friendly, but understaffed. Multiple large parties threw off the cadence and turned into a 2.5 hour dinner with lots of waiting. We ultimately cancelled our desert and left early. Management needs to better prepare for holiday traffic and staff up.
Would try again on a regular night to better evaluate the experience
The service was exceptional & the manager was excellent
I was disappointed by the neglectful staff as were the people at the table next to us. The food was good. Our waitress didn't describe two of the dishes correctly which kind of throw you off, but they were tasty.
Great experience except for the rock in my dish but they credit the bill
Outstanding service, exceptional food and very accommodating to food allergies. I would highly recommend this place and looking forward to returning in the near future.
Amazing food, super delicious. The Kitchen was moving slow though - probably short handed.
Food was great, music was fantastic, service was not bad but can be improved
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Manhattan Beach, but our last visit was unusually just ok. I don't know if it was Sunday sheff that but the dishes we loved before were just mediocre
Outstanding Asian fusion restaurant with great service, amazing food and a cool vibe.
I have dined here before and wasn’t a big fan (tried a braised pork belly dish that they put ketchup in and it was awful). Decided to give it another try since we wanted some vietnamese and it’s within walking distance to us. We felt disappointed again, mediocre flavor (I’m Vietnamese so I needed something more authentic) but out of everything, the meal was really reallr pricey. We walked out of the restaurant never paying that much for vietnamese food (avg $20 per plate) and feeling that unsatisfied (the portion is also tiny). I get the downtown mb location and nice ambience kick up the price a lot, but I don’t think it was worth it...
I’ve eaten here several times and has been great. Last few times definitely feels like they are losing the magic back in the kitchen.
