Our party of six enjoyed lunch here (was heading to the theatre after) on Sunday (reservations only on this day). Uniquely decorated and designed cafe. A lot of yummy choices to select from on the regular and special menu. The soups and lunch items were all delicious and we everything all up (panini sandwiches, curry, salads and quesadilla). Our only... More

This is a dining experience! Amazing service and the menu is over the top! The chocolate bacon dip and toasted pepper soup are out of this world. The peaches and cream apricot cheesecake was fantastic. Make sure you order house iced tea. They teach you so much about your food. Make a reservation to ensure they are open and seats... More

Everything i have eaten here always has lots of flavor, he can make the ordinary, extraordinary, like his buttered chicken, is not the plain stuff... More

Not only was the service incredible, but the food was easily the best Thai food I've ever had. In fact it is probably the best food I've ever had period. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves authentic and fresh cuisine.

3 of us dropped by for quick lunch. The chili was decent...the maple chicken panini was kinda plain...curry lentil soup was good...butter chicken was not to Grain of S standards. Nice guy running place... had a vegan feel to place if that's your thing.

Fabulous food,excellent wine and beer, focused on distinctive flavours, toothsome desserts. Hamet provided friendly, personalized accommodation and supervision of a ramp to allow my scooter to enter and exit the restaurant. We were three couples (including one vegetarian) attending this bistro after enjoying a matinee at the Dunfield centre just across the street. Thank you for an excellent culinary experience.

It is obvious to me that the proprietors love food. Raynman M's review hits a lot of the points of our visit accurately and I wanted to write a review to emphasize the hidden treasure the Wired Pugs is to Cambridge. The dishes served to my party of 3 all won rave reviews. it is almost as if the standard... More
