Thank you very much for the amazing dinner. I love trying new restaurants and am so happy that i was able to find this quint hidden treasure in Cambridge. The food was a delightful surprise which stimulated my taste buds to a heightened sense from the start with the soup (roasted red pepper/sweet potato) and continuing through with the curry... More

This is an odd restaurant, confusing menu, a promise of great flavors from the chef/waiter person. Wonderful descriptions on how everything will be amazing. However my friends have been there once before, and we had high hopes. The flavors were week at best, clearly a lack of confidence in the kitchen. There wasn't one dish that stood out as amazing.

I have been to The Wired up Pugs close to a dozen times since May 2014 and am yet to be disappointed. From the enchiladas and quesadillas to the salmon and gourmet burger, you really can't go wrong. The enchilada is about the size of a football, Salmon portion is massive (literally the length of your plate) and gourmet burger... More

Four of us reserved a table for a Sunday lunch. The entire experience was super delightful from start to finish!

We stopped here for lunch while staying in Cambridge and found it to be an interesting place to eat. The food seemed to be somewhat vegetarian and healthy and also tended to have a few curries on the menu. The menu was a sort of fusion style of food. We started with a bowl of roasted red pepper soup which... More

I have been to the Wired-Up Pug three times, and the food can be good, although not always guaranteed. I have ordered two dishes twice but the neither dish was a good the second time. I have never been disappointed by their salads, but their soups can be greasy, and their deconstructed cheesecake tastes completely different with each visit. However,... More

I have been to the Pug numerous times and have never had a bad experience. Not once. You will be wondering when you walk in the door because its not the Ritz Carlton, but once the owner comes out and explains the days specials, your mouth will be watering. A couple of must haves, the red pepper soup, it is... More
