Interesting food! Fusion of many flavors. I had pork belly buns and steamed dumplings both quite good. Shared twice fried chicken wings that were tasty. Prices were quite reasonable.

Over priced and crappy customer service. If something is not done correctly they just say, sorry without any care to fix it! The waiters fearing for their job security do not show any flexibility in being able to accommodate the customer when the food is...More

We get lunch takeout from Lucha Tigre periodically and the food is always delicious. They do a great job of blending flavors together. I love their Chicken Tostados. It's a great blend of Latin & Asian cuisine with wonderful flavors.

Lucha Tigre offers a delicious mix of Latin and Asian flavors from a well-conceived menu. The service is quick and friendly. We often get takeout orders and enjoy a drink at the bar while we’re waiting. Lucha Tigre gets it!

They have an eclectic and varied menu combined with a fun and somewhat funky environment - can't beat it for lunch with coworkers. Good food and good service every time I've been. Take a chance - you won't regret it.

Who would have thought Asian and Latino food could come together in such deliciousness? We sat out on the patio and had a great late night dinner of spring rolls, shrimp ceviche and chips. Loved the tangy ginger beer as well. If I lived here,...More
