Can anyone else confirm that this location is now closed? The door was locked during the lunch hour today. I called and was told that they have moved to 107 street and whyte ave but then the gentlemen on the phone said they bought Origin's old phone number and he confirmed that Origin has closed.

Stopped in around 7pm for food. Prompt and attentive service. Got the buffet. Food could have been slightly warmer, but the taste was delicious. The saag was exceptional. Exactly what I needed. Their price on beer was also very reasonable.

been coming here for a number of years. the service is always graceful and friendly, and the food is always tasty. the buffet has a nice variety of spice, and the beer choices are wonderful. sometimes the wine choices are a bit slim but whatever you get will be good. nice atmosphere, clean bathrooms.

This used to be our favourite Indian place when we lived in Edmonton. We were visiting and saw it on Groupon so had to come back. Upon arrival we noticed that it's under new management so we were a little skeptical. The food was good but not as good as we remembered. Either it has changed, or our memories were... More

Went there for a late lunch, The place due to the time was pretty much empty. The outside and surrounding places did not give me a good feel but inside things change a lot. They were nice enough to keep the buffet open for us a little longer. The best and tastiest vegetable plates we have tried so far, the... More

2 of us went for the excellent buffet on a Saturday and we were the only customers. The selection was more than adequate and tasted great. It can only be a matter of time before the word spreads and the tables are full. The service was prompt and friendly and we were each given a 15% off coupon for our... More

A buffet with many tasty dishes to choose from, and plenty of vegetarian as well. The service was good. These guys were pleasant and helpful which is always appreciated. Overall worth it, and the price was reasonable. The gulab jamon could have been a little warmer, that's our only complaint, still it was tasty.

Had reservations for 6pm. Didn't even need them. The place was empty. The buffet was lacking even though it was 6pm on a Saturday!!! No rice was left. Had to wait for more to be cooked. The atmosphere really was like a dark pub. And weird dusty wine bottles on the walls. Service was OK. But i had to ask... More
