One of the best meals we've ever had

My husband and I tried Wired up Pugs for the first time last night (May 22, 2015) and we will definitely be back. Our food was amazing. My husband had the red Thai curry with tilapia and he said it was one of the best currys he ever ate (and he gets a lot of curry). I had the Tilapia... read more

This little gem is by far the best in Cambridge. The only thing that is better then the food is the hospitality and passion of the chef/owners. You are welcomed as soon as you walk into the door. When you read or hear people about supporting local and eating local, this is the place they are talking about!

Went with friends for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was fantastic, fresh and made to our specifications. Mouth watering Red Pepper soup is a "must try". Since all meals are made to order and are freshly made you need to have time to enjoy the experience and not be in a rush. Lovely presentation of the food... More

I went here last weekend with a few friends for dinner, and we all absolutely loved it! The food was superb, the servers and bartender friendly and chatty, and the atmosphere extremely welcoming. Will definitely be returning in the near future! My new favorite restaurant in Cambridge.

Let me make one thing clear off the start, if you want to eat drab traditional fare this is not the place for you! This restaurant is what I would call an Indian-American Fusion, you will not find any burgers, fries or wings on this menu, what you will find is an eclectic mix of traditional Indian and other "exotic"...

We were extremely disappointed to have wasted our money on lunch at this restaurant. We should have known when the waitress told us our choice of wine was white or red - both dry, and that was after pulling the information out of her! The white wine was warm when it arrived. A stop to the restroom before lunch should... More
