Little Sister is not your standard beach restaurant. It is always packed for dinner so I decided to try it for lunch. The southeast Asian selections are so scrumptious and special that they are difficult to describe. We had Crab/lobster spring roll, beef noodles and a Vietnamese Cold Cut Banh Mi. Not one of these dishes were what we expected in that they were so much better and surprised us every time. This is a relatively expensive lunch but very very worth it. Service was perfect and I liked the music and energy of the space. Little Sister earns all of the praise that it has received. Lucky Manhattan Beach to have this spot.

Little Sister is the little sister of Abigail restaurant in Hermosa Beach. They specialize in small plates with primarily Asian influences.The Pork Belly with noodles was excellent, The fried chicken dish was a big hit. One of my dining companions has lived internationally. She declared the Creme Brulee was the best she has had in the US.
It is a small and noisy restaurant. More suitable for couples and friends.

Good food and attentive staff. My only complaint is the excessively loud Rap music. Who wants to eat dinner over Eminem?

The food was on average very good. Highlights included sweet clams in a black bean broth and a soft-shell crab Bahn mi. Some of the clams were not opened though. The wine was overly expensive and the profanity ladened rap music was a turn off.

Trendy and warm at the same time. This little jewel serves very unique and tasty fusion cuisine. Atmosphere is upscale with a lot interaction between tables as people experience one of a kind preparations
