When I want something different, I head to Origin Thai, a French Thai Fusion restaurant. The instant you walk through the door you know you are in good culinary hands. If your spirits need reviving the flowing water fall and Asian decor will do the trick. Grilled spicy shrimp served with rice steamed in banana leaf, tamarind duck, escargot and crispy duck salad are among my favorite selections.

You cannot go wrong with anything on this fusion menu. The Phuket shrimp stuffed with scallops are divine at dinnertime. The Pad King and Pad thai are also great. The lunch menu is a great value and includes soup with the entree. The Basking Ridge location tends to get very noisy because of the acoustics of the restaurant. When the weather is warm, there are outdoor tables--a nice touch. There are two other locations--one in Somerville and one in Morristown. All three locations are excellent with consistently excellent food, service, and atmosphere.

really high quality thai food with great atmosphere. A little pricey but well worth it. sauces and meats and fresh and well worth it, special favorites are curry puffs and Bangkok Duck but Pad Thais are superior to most as well. I've had family celebrations, christmas eves here and gotten take out dozens of times. never an off night.

Every time we eat at Origin in Basking Ridge, our meal is excellent. We never had a bad meal here.

Tonight we began with spare ribs, steamed mussels and duck salad - all shared. All great. One of our party thought the spare ribs were dry. Perhaps.

We then had Pan See Ew (flat rice noodles) with beef, Suko Thai Curry (red curry and coconut milk) with Chicken and Gra Praw (Thai basil and chili peppers)with shrimp. All were excellent.

We were stuffed and could not have dessert.

Another great thing is that this is a BYOB restaurant. We had sparkling wine with our meal. It is a great edition for a Thai meal.
