Take a culinary journey through South Asian-inspired fare at Tiger Mama. This restaurant serves lunch and dinner in a vibrant space, enhanced by ferns, plants and soft wood paneling. The menu is a love story to Chef Tiffani Faison's culinary brilliance, with a list that seamlessly borrows from the Vietnamese, Thai and Malaysian cooking playbook. It offers over 30 small-to-medium plate items, broken down into relatable categories like "rich and earthy" or "cold and fresh."
In addition to its dining area, Tiger Mama also hosts a front bar managed by Brian Callahan. It serves wine, beers and exotic cocktails, such as the Taiwan On: a sweet mix of coconut, key lime, Batavia and Thai basil. Tiger Mama is open all through the week.

The restaurant was closed!!!! Open table should have let me know. I made this reservation over 2 months ago because I had a group of people coming in town. Showed up and it was CLOSED! Thanks open table for ruining or dining plans. Was too late to make a reservation anywhere else. Should be compensated
Had a great meal at Tiger Mama! All dishes were delicious and we had a mocktail that was amazing!
We got four items between 2 of us and we weren’t sure if that would be enough but it was just right!
Looking forward to visiting again to try some different dishes.
One of my favorite places in Boston for food and the drinks. Everything I order is always amazing. Their menu changes every so often which keeps things fresh and new, even though I am sad to see a favorite leave the menu! Great place for drinks/food with friends or a date
Our dishes were tasty and generously portioned, but would have been nice to have a few more vegetarian options, esp noodles or appetizer style dishes
Amazing food. Very energetic-- great music but definitely a bit loud.
Charged me double for one drink because I asked for a substitution but they didn’t even tell me they’d charge for that! Great food but completely overpriced and poor service
Absolutely incredible experience. The chef personally wished my girlfriend a happy birthday which made her entire day and the food was outstanding. Will be back!
What a meal! Great flavors and tasty drinks. Cannot recommend highly enough.
My friend and I who went lived in Thailand for a while and we have been search for a place in Boston that had Thai food that reminded us of where we lived. This place has some of the best Thai food we have ever found in Boston as it is the closest to Thai food from Thailand! Highly recommend for individuals looks for the true taste of Thailand.
Hello! Thank you so much for the lovely compliment. We hope to see you again soon! -Michaela
Thank you! She's the best! -Michaela
Part of our meals came out cold and ruined the entire cuisine experience. Our waiter kept switching and not bringing us what we asked for. Super upset that we paid for a expensive meal that was apparently cooked fresh and brought out to us…. But was cold…… ??? Food was also extremely over salted. Southeast Asian food does not have to be over salted to taste good.
Hello, We seemed to have dropped the ball on your visit. I'm so sorry we didn't know while you were still dining with us. I will share your feedback with both the servers and the kitchen. Thank you for the opportunity to improve. We hope to see you again. Please feel free to reach out with any more information. -Michaela
The house fried rice is a must. Our waiter was excellent & the space was a vibe.
Our server was very friendly and helpful in making menu recommendations as we had not visited previously. The food was absolutely delicious and a good value for the amount of food we ordered. We would certainly visit again.
Great food, great drinks, and great way to spend an evening with friends.
Plates are tasty, but way too small. A fun way to rip people off in the name of fanciness
Thank you for your feedback, Roland. I'm sorry you feel that our plates aren't a good value. I will pass this information along to the kitchen and see what we can do to make changes. Thank you again! -Michaela
This place was great. The food was innovative and flavorful. The drinks were incredible, unique, and balanced. The service was informative and engaged. We even saw and met the owner who was extremely nice and was always working when she was there. Everyone cared and it really showed. Best place we visited in Boston
Hi Nick! Thank you so much for the positive feedback. I am relaying it to our team so they can continue to impress! We hope to see you again soon. Cheers! Michaela
The food was decent. The service from the server was actually really good she was attentive, engaging and professional. The FOH manager on the other had was completely unprofessional. He reprimanded the server at length twice right next to our table to make clear his displeasure that I have a food allergy and that the server was trying to accommodate me. If Tiger Mama does not want to accommodate food allergies that is fine, just make it clear before people arrive and if any manager anywhere feels the need to reprimand an employee then that conversation should not happen within earshot of customers or even other employees. I have rarely felt so unwelcome in a business. And it really left me with a negative impression of the whole restaurant.
We have been here a number of times and the food is always amongst the best in town.
Hi Rudi! Thank you for your lovely review, we hope to see you soon! -Michaela

Shareable plates, good service, spicy food! I would recommend to anyone that loves Asian food and tapas
Hi Carolyn! We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience at Tiger Mama and hope to see you again soon. Michaela
First time at Tiger Mama and definitely not the last. Food was fantastic, Kearsten provided excellent service and made really great recommendations (the marigolds and masala was awesome!), and the bartenders concocted a mocktail for my wife that was exceptional too.
Hello! Thank you so much for your review, we are so happy that you enjoyed your experience. We hope to see you again soon! Michaela
Everything about this meal was perfect. The service, food, drinks (especially the wine list) and hospitality are top notch. We love Tiger Mama!
Hi Jack, We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience at Tiger Mama. We hope to see you again soon! Michaela
Great for pre or post Fenway Park events--two short blocks away. We had hamachi crudo, Singapore Street Noodles, Pad Gra Pow (spicy ground chicken with rice) and Yu Shiang eggplant. The eggplant was the best I have ever had, in a rich sauce with basil and peppers. The Pad Gra Pow was a very well-executed version of something I've enjoyed eating in Cambodia. The noodles were also delicious. The crudo was good, but not worth what we paid for it. The Mai Tais were also pricey, but delicious, and different from the fruit bombs we're used to. As with Faison's other restaurants, the service was stellar. We'll certainly be back.
Thank you for joining us. I hope that you will be back very soon for some more Pad Gra Pow and Ys Shiang eggplant! Greg
Great food, great service, glad this restaurant is open again 👍🏽
Thank you for joining us. We hope to see you again very soon! Greg
Food is alway fantastic, staff always super friendly! Glad they are open again post pandemic! Favorite spot in town!!
Thank you! Please come again very soon! Greg
So happy Tiger Mama is open again! Service was amazing as always. I left very full and very happy. One of my favorite spots in Boston. Can’t wait to go back!
Thank you! It's great to know that you enjoyed your experience. I hope that you will be back very soon. Greg
Fantastic experience with delicious food and wine!
Thank you! Please come again soon. Greg
If you're reading this review to decide whether to come, just make a reservation now. Food was phenomenal, drinks were delightful, and service was amazing (ask for Kearsten -- she knows her stuff, was friendly and cordial, and all of her food and drink recommendations were on point). Definitely will be coming back.
Thank you for your lovely review! Kearsten is a gem. -Michaela
Everything was great
Thank you! Please come again soon! Greg
Just getting back on their feet, getting their menu back on point. Still really good
Thank you for dining with us. We are so happy to be open again and appreciate you taking the time write a review. If you have any constructive criticism to share with us about the meal, we would be grateful for your input. We hope to see you again very soon! Greg
We love you!! Thanks to Melody and Charlie for making the experience super special. We’re glad you’re back.
Thank you for stopping in. We are so happy to be open again and so grateful for our wonderful staff. We hope to see you again very soon! Greg
The food is always phenomenal, but they replaced their amazing ribs with chicken and it’s just not the same!
Pls bring back the ribs <3
Thank you for dining with us! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your evening and hope that you will join us again very soon. I will share your request for the short ribs with Chef. Greg
Restaurant was fine. Excellent service
Tables and booth were sticky. Food was average. The chicken sausage was rubbery, the satay had a strange consistency... Like it was steamed/boiled too long, and the ground chicken was so spicy, I couldn't tased anything else. Limited menu choices and the chef refused to modify (leave out the meat) from the fried rice dish to accommodate the one vegetarian in the party
Amazing food but super disappointing service. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to come over after we were seated and almost 40 for any food to come out- she also never checked in.
We were much more impressed with coming here the second time than the first time we did a couple years back. Food was delicious and inventive and really easy to share. Decor/ambiance awesome as usual. Would highly recommend this place (or Tiffany’s other restaurant down the street, Sweet Cheeks BBQ).
