Southeast Asian

Little Sister Redondo Beach 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. "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.”

    Great food, well made and deeply seasoned and spiced. Service was choppy outside. Seemed to not section waitstaff well. Forgot baguette and blamed the kitchen. Greeted by 2 waiters and then forgotten for a bot bit got it back on track. Definitely will go back tho. Maybe sit at the bar instead of outside.

    Little Sister is an extremely successful experiment in Vietnamese cuisine that is seemingly altered at just about every step. The result is no longer a 'pure' Vietnamese food, but a truly refashioned cuisine, drawing upon a wide range of influences in what is basically a charming laboratory of recombinant tastes. Some dishes are bold, some mild, but all are well-thought out and pleasing.

    Food was delicious…. But unfortunately service was not great. They may have been a bit short staffed so I’d like to give them a benefit of the doubt. Our appetiser arrived after most of our entrees. The waiter was not very accommodating and a bit brusque. Definitely feels like they need a strong GM to step in guide the staff better. For the cost of the dinner (over $300 for 4 people) the service and attitude could have been better. But with that being said- we will go back! The food and flavours were to die for!

    AWFUL. We will not being going back to Little Sister’s Redondo location. We waited 5 mins to be greeted, 10 mins to be seated, another 10 mins to have someone come to the table and ask to take our order, and another 5 mins just to get water. We ordered soup and a sandwich. The sandwich came after waiting 25 mins after we ordered, and the soup NEVER came. How do you not bring food together, or at least within a few mins?! We had to wait 15 mins after the sandwich came, for US to go into the restaurant and hunt down the server to ask him to cancel the soup we ordered. Further, the sandwich was barely a sandwich, more like a sliced baguette with a single strip of short rib. Not even close to being worth the price. We sat outside in the sun for an hour and did not have our waters refilled once. The server then brought us our check with even more items on it than we ordered. We had ONE item! How do you not double check the check before bringing it to a table that is already frustrated (and still hungry)!? The server told us “sorry you caught us at a bad time, we are under staffed” which we would have had sympathy for, had we not walked in to the restaurant to see the cook talking, not doing anything and the servers talking, not doing anything. WORST experience we have had dining in Redondo.

    We waited for an hour before our food came out without any explanation or apology. The restaurant wasn’t particularly busy and we had to ask our server for everything. He never came to check on us. So disappointing because the food is so good.

    Excellent service! Our wait person was Stephanie. She took great care of us. We had the sea bass and an order of garlic noodles. Both were very good. We had the whiskey tea and a spicy margarita type drink. The place was buzzy on a Friday night but not swarming which was nice. A thumbs up! 👍🏻

    food was delicious - go here if you want to try a different take on Asiatic food. the fried okra is one of my favorites but it is a bit on the spicy side. My friend loved her octopus salad which was fresh and not spicy. The dumplings were served on top of the seafood stuffing - you definitely need to add the dipping sauce to get all the flavors to come out. my Imperial rolls were supposed to be eaten lettuce wrap style but the rolls were too big and the lettuce too small so we ended up eating them as you would an egg roll. this was 4 appetizers and two people were not able to finish all the food

    Delicious recommendations by our server! Menu is not vegetarian friendly and substitutions are generally not allowed (some exceptions are made). Started with Tofu bowl served with greens, vermicelli noodles, vegan savory dressing. Fresh roll with shrimp and for mains we ordered pork belly with leek fondue and salmon clay pots. Everything was so good! Cocktails - highly recommend the whiskey tea.

    We used to love and frequent the Redondo location before Covid. However, the food doesn't taste as good after covid, especially the shaky shaky beef and lemongrass chicken. They must have lost their chefs. Shaky beef and chicken were so tender, savory, and delicious before covid, but now they're just BLAH. We won't visit this location for a little while longer. I hope they find a better chef soon.

    Food was mediocre. Service was atrocious. Our server was also the bartender. Once we received the check we waited over 15 min and finally went to the bar to have it cashed out. Although our server was nice the restaurant is clearly Under staffed and the food was not worth $150.

    All Waiters need to be train more for service, focus on work, customer. If no interest to serve customer outside just get rid of all out door seat. Also people not want to set in side restaurants because the music is super loud too noisy. It restaurant not a club. It not peaceful & relax to enjoy food when music is keep Shouting you when u eat.

    The food was amazing and the service was good. Difficult to get help at time but always very helpful when you ask them. Forgot that we were allergic to nuts which was scary but all was ok this time as we saw it early. The restaurant is nice and small so feels intimate but it was soooo cold, even though we were sitting inside, so bring a jacket or blanket if you are going as they don’t have that in the rastaurant. Can stronly recommend the dumplings! They are the best! If you are allergic to nuts, double check so you don’t get that in the food.

    The food is always consistently good. I always start with the papaya salad. It's always good but sometimes it's great which makes me keep ordering it. Although I wish it was always great. The dinner menu has more options for my pescatarian friend but she loved the seabass and salmon. I'm partial to all the pork dishes.
