my girlfriend and I have always enjoyed this place. The menu in of itself is unique enough that is warrants a visit - a sort of Thai, Indian fusion with all sorts of other stuff sprinkled in. The food has always been excellent and particularly easy to order from with her having to eat gluten free - one very good... More

Its hard to imagine any chain restaurant, or any other restaurant doing what they do, and that is most definitely a good thing. Firstly the atmosphere. Its small and intimate. The menu is written on a chalkboard on one of the walls, so you can begin deciding before you are even given a menu. The decor is very modern, and... More

You always wonder when you take friends to restaurant that you love, in case they do not like it. After seeing an excellent production of Les Mis at Dunfield we had supper at Wired Pugs. The owner/chef (Vidusee) spent time with us and explain his background and how he prepares the meals. Two of us had excellent sea bass, my... More

Wonderful menu items that were interesting and unusual. All of our dishes were very very balanced blends of complementing flavours. I had a great Thai-like curry, while my wife enjoyed a fabulous Sea Bass. The fruit Brie flatbread appetiser was really nice. The Bistro atmosphere was very artistic and interesting, but not the most comfortable.
