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.

    We have eaten here many times. We love the eggplant and the garlic noodles; however, the noodles were pretty bad today, they tasted sour and the garlic oil seemed rancid. We wanted to let the manager know; however, the manager was not it in. We probably will not come back to this location. Will try Redondo Beach, hopefully this will be better.

    Had not been to Little Sister since right before Covid started. Still amazing food and service. One of my favorite restaurants. Very casual atmosphere.

    While the food was mostly excellent, the chicken bahn mi was dry and overcooked. The shaky shaky beef was lovely. Most shaking beef is about the sauce-this is about the beef and it’s really great. The space is very vibrant and very loud. I wouldn’t recommend LS for a quiet date by any means. Service was rushed to the point that you wondered how much the kitchen pre-cooks. My biggest issue was a server who wanted to wipe out table with a nasty bar rag while we were still finishing drinks post-meal. This is such bad form and essentially says, “get out” Price point is rather higher for the portions and quality.

    First experience here didn’t start off too well. Asked the hostess for a booth since all of them were open and she rejected us saying it was for a table of 5 even though they were all set for 2 tops. Then she seats us in a space that could have been used for her “ table of 5” . No one ending up filling the spaces in the booth which was kind of ridiculous. This is also early in the evening. We ordered a few dishes that were all just ok. The chicken wings were probably the best. I won’t be going back here.
