Little Sister - Redondo Beach
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.”
Too many tables. The kitchen was backed up. 2 hours
Food was great, service was terrible. Took 30 mins to get our first drink.
Always have a wonderful time here with friends
This place is such a GEM in the South Bay! I was blown away at the service, and the FOOD! WOW! One of the best meals I've ever had in this town. I 10 out of 10 recommend Little Sisters for they ambiance, the staff, the service and the dishes! You will not be disappointed.
Delicious great flavors. Best Restaurant in the Riviera
Great interesting cocktails
Great food and service. Loved dining outside - felt like I was at a French bistro. Lovely attentive wait staff. Dinner was a real pleasure!
Covid limited menu. Lobster not available even though we called and asked in advance. 2 other dishes on menu not available. Waitress was only ok. Seemed resentful of questions.
You can’t go wrong with their cocktails. We had the Imperial Rolls, lemongrass beef and fish. All were flavorful, fresh and delish, especially the fish. Southbay LA doesn’t have enough options for Asian Fusion, so I really I appreciate this place.
Great service. Relaxing during this time of covid. Everything was terrific
Little Sister never disappoints! Obviously dealing with all this Covid nonsense has made it more challenging for restaurants like this and I feel that they are doing the best they can. Can we all just get back inside already?!
Anyway, shifting Little Sister outdoors has its obvious challenges especially in terms of ambiance, however, they have the best with what they have. My understanding is that they have a new chef on site and I have to say, the pork belly never tasted so good. The food is, as always, right on point!
My recent visit was very nice and I will of course be back soon.
We were able to be sat just before the kitchen closed. The staff was very reasonable and did not make us feel intrusive. The food was amazing, service was personal and the outdoor dining was very pleasant with its beach location.
Decided to try Little Sister for Happy Hour. They no longer have a Happy Hour menu, verbal and cocktails only. Ordered cocktails and while waiting for our drinks, I went to use the WC. Coed like so many other restaurants these days. The facility was absolutely filthy, disgusting & dirty.
There was no way we were going to order food after discovering the state of the toilets. Didn’t even want to finish our drinks.
Renee was wonderful!
This place never disappoints. Very imaginative menu, great service and wonderful cocktails.
Off the cuff and absolutely amazing! Not your average Southeast Asian cuisine. The menu and wine list are both intellectually insightful and well curated. A total exploration of the senses of taste, mind, and soul.
Food not as good as we were told. Okra curry was terrible - sour and sweet - didn't taste like curry. Efu noodles were good. And friend pork spring roll also sour - probably the worse we've had and we live in nyc where Vietnamese barely rivals California ones -- its an ok fusion best for white or non asian palettes
Disappointing. This is our fave but the service was poor. Slow. Not organized.
Covid style outdoor dining. Not my fav but just had to go to enjoy resto good food.
Great set up outside with just a few tables, always love their food especially their beef vermicelli.
This was our wedding anniversary dinner. Felt very safe with the health and safety protocol the restaurant had in place. Food was excellent! Only negative/disappointment: I had left a specific note that this was our wedding anniversary. Despite the restaurant knowing this in advance, no mention of is this/no congratulations upon our arrival, during our dinner, after dinner and when leaving. Did not want to make an issue of it in front of my wife but it seemed like an odd oversight and a missed opportunity. In my opinion and experience, the little details matter .
Fun date night! Sat outside. Great time.
Missed this place during the stay home order. We had shaky shaky beef, pork chops and eggplant - every dish was perfect.
We went on a Wed night. I received my food 45 minutes BEFORE the other 3 people in my party & the pork chop I ordered should have taken the longest to cook of the 4 meals we ordered. When I asked why, the waitress blamed it on to go orders, when in fact EVERYONE that arrived AFTER us received their orders and FINISHED eating prior to us receiving our order.
This was our 2nd time coming here & we had such a great experience, that we came back and brought our family. Unfortunately, they were very disappointed & will not be coming back.
My husband & I haven’t decided whether we will be back yet.
Glad they are back open, can only have so much ambiance eating on sidewalk but the forms was spectacular as always. Great service!!
Doing a great job during covid.
The service was atrocious. I understand the current circumstances due to Covid, but we waited too long for our meals while all the tables around us received their orders at a quick pace.
The best dinner we have had in Redondo Beach. Food is so incredible. Highly recommend the dumplings!
Food is always great. Social distanced and masks worn by staff -- much appreciated. Took awhile to figure out that they were out of scallion pancakes -- an integral part of a dish, and their offer to substitute such lame items as a baguette of white rice was sad. We changed the order and were happy with the selection
Always a great experience at Little Sister! This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Southbay. You can’t beat Little Sister for the freshness of ingredients, the innovative food, and the amazing flavors. The service is always top notch, too.
The curry was absolutely delicious and the noodles were fantastic! Really impressed with the flavors and quality of food. The snapper and prawns were so tasty! It was served family style and the entrees were very filling. I will absolutely return to this restaurant.
Love the food and excellent service. This was our first dining out experience during the Pandemic. Being short staffed, our server was working hard to provide excellent service.
They handled the new restrictions wonderfully. Our server (Brian?) was energetic and made perfect recommendations for every course.
The service and food is always so excellent! The food is always hot and flavorful. The happy hour is an amazing value. And the servers are always so nice and attentive. We’ll be back!
Delicious food and outstanding service! Will definitely come back
We love this place! The staff is amazing and the food is soo good. This location has a full bar as well! Leila ( I think I spelled her name correct?) is the best!
Service was great!
The food is very creative and delicious. We especially enjoyed the mixed seafood with black and red rice, which can be made without pork. The service was excellent as well.
AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING!
Every dish was great - filled with flavor and very interesting. Would highly recommend.
