Origins is always a place my family and I know we could go to have a great meal and service. Been going here for years and will continue to. They seem to always have something new on the menu to try.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always amazing, no matter what you choose. This restaurant is Thai w/ a touch of French influences. The staff is friendly and accommodating even when you don't have a reservation. It's also a BYOB. Whether you're dining for a romantic dinner, dinner with friends or family or taking in a... More

Have been coming here for over 15 years. Never been disappointed in the food or service. Great seafood and duck. Can get a little loud at times. BYOB is a plus especially with grown children.

My wife and I have been here many times over the last 10 years. Always amazing. Flavors are unique and satisfying. Good options on the menu. Haven't had a meal I haven't loved. It's BYOB. Good service. Very attentive. Love the Tom Yum soup. Comes out hot and spicy. Flavor from the first spoonful to the last. I had the... More

Headed here for lunch after a brisk walk at Duke Island Park, about 5 min from restaurant. We arrived around 12.15, and we're seated immediately. Good thing we arrived when we did, the place quickly filled up around 2! Large parties, parties with kids, etc. Service was quick and efficient. Spring rolls were fresh and tasty, not fried, but so... More

. . . the service is noticeably inattentive. For example, we waited for about 20 minutes foe a server to come around to take our order and that only happened because I complained to the manager. Then, we were more or less ignored during the meal. In other words, the server did not come by to check on us. Finally,... More

Origin Thai in Somerville, NJ is a very attractive BYOB restaurant in the heart of Somerville's pedestrian dining area. Its popularity is enhanced by its varied menu of Asian and French fusion cuisine. Our party had delicious Chicken Sate and Golden Curry Puff appetizers and crispy Peking Duck Salad. Entrees consisted of succulent Sea Bass, crispy Grilled Salmon, Pad Khing... More

This is a lovely Thai restaurant serving excellent food with great service. It's located on a pedestrian only street which makes dining outside such a pleasure. Well worth a visit!

We have been to this restaurant numerous times, and always enjoy our meals. Service is excellent and they will listen to the food concerns of people in your group, vegetarian, vegan or allergies. It is crowded on Saturday nights, but we were able to make a reservation for six recently during the afternoon on Saturday of Labor Day Weekend.

Another dinner with friends. Our first visit to a French Thai restaurant. We chose French Onion soup, I thought that was an odd choice for a French Thai restaurant, but, it was the BEST we ever tasted. Another choice was the escargot, which was just fair, and the rice ravioli was not worth more than one bite. There were three... More
