“Outstanding Thai”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Visiting some friends in New Jersey, they suggested Origin, one of their favorite restaurants, for lunch. Fantastic! The food was plentiful, reasonably priced, and delicious. Both traditional Thai dishes and more eclectic choices were wonderful. If we lived nearby we'd be here once a week.

Fast service at lunch time. Wait staff very friendly. Great selection on lunch menu. Will definitely go back. I had the shrimp with ginger sauce and a side salad. Great taste! Nice atmosphere.

“A Favorite in Somerville”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

Origin's is one of my favorite BYOB's in Somerville. The arugala salad is amazing. Great atmosphere, great food. Reservations recommeded. If you come on a weekend without a reservation they do their best to accomodate but be prepared to wait. Due to the busy nature it's not a quiet place to sit and linger over a nice dinner but the food and the service are excellent.

“Everything tasty”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We had dinner at Origin last evening with 2 business associates of my husbands, on my recommendation. My last dinner at Origin was at least 7-8 yrs ago, and I had a really nice meal, so I recommended Origin as a fun option for dinner. We each had different starters; Peking Duck salad, Grilled squid salad, Mussels, and Seared Tuna all were fresh and very good!! For our Entrees again we each had something different; Pad Thai Noodles with shrimp, Pad Khing with shrimp, Bangkok Duck and Gra Praw with shrimp. Wonderful, wonderful, add to that it is a BYOB and Origin in Somerville is a mush do, Delish!!
