It's a great place in Somerville to eat Thai food. I had the lobster curry and it was fantastic. All the flavours were right and enjoyed every piece of it. If you love Thai food this is the place to be.

We have been visiting this restaurant frequently the last year and they still keep the same high standard on service and food. This is a place for all occasions private or work. Bring you own favorite wine or beer and enjoy with excellent food and great friends.

We are local to Somerville and dine at Origin regularly. This restaurant uses an interesting fusion of French and Thai cooking. The only thing they lack is a liquor license but that need is easily met by one of the liquor stores within a block or two of the restaurant. Service is consistently good. I find some of the seats...

One of my favorite places to dine. Great food, service, and ambiance. Outdoor dining in spring/summer too. BYOB! Among my favorites…..Moscavy Duck Breast! Grilled Shrimp are huge and fab. Must have Curry Puffs for appetizer too. Portions are perfect and always yummy!

I try to order new dishes, but being a vegetarian, the Massaman Curry is my go-to order. The rice ravioli, Vietnamese Spring rolls, and crispy tofu with peanut sauce appetizers are just delish. I agree, the lunch menu is just as good for a great deal! Somerville is my favorite location, but the Morristown and Basking Ridge locations are just... More

We are never disappointed when we eat at any of the Origin restaurants. It is a fun place to go for a birthday celebration.

My husband and I have been here several times now, and working our way around the menu. This time we had the tamarind duck, green curry dinner, and lad nar noodles (yes, we had plenty of leftovers). As usual, everything was prepared fantastically, and we truly enjoy this restaurant!

I've been to Origin twice for dinner and twice for lunch. Lunch is an excellent deal, really good food at about $10. If it was closer to home, I would go often. Good service and nicely decorated
