“Delicious Food , Friendly Staff”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is very nicely decorated and is very comfortable . There is plenty of seating and we enjoy the open kitchen. The menu has a broad range of offerings- with French Thai combination. Noodles, chicken, shrimp, duck and fresh seafood are offered. Delicious food, served nice and hot, well paced service with a smile. Origins has consistently been one of our favorite restaurants. There are also locations in Somerville and Basking Ridge.

“Thai with a twist, and bigger than it looks”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

I really wasn't sure what to expect from a concept of French-Thai fusion, but have to say I'm pretty happy with the result. There's no mistaking it's a Thai restaurant, but with some interesting twists on the menu. We explored some of the variety offered and didn't have a bad dish. The dishes were creative and well prepared. From onion soup to duck tamarind to chicken curry, it was all good. The food took a little longer than expected to arrive, but no complaints with the result.
One of the surprises about this restaurant is that while it looks small from the outside, once you go in you see there's also a stairway leading downstairs, and the downstairs seating is a bit larger than the main level, so in fact the restaurant is a fairly decent size. The décor was (in my opinion) nicer on the main floor, and provided a really nice atmosphere.
While the food was great, the service was mediocre, with wait staff who were at times not very attentive or engaged. I wouldn't call it bad, just not very good on this (my only) visit.
This is a BYOB place, and it's pretty popular to bring a bottle of wine.
A parking note for those unfamiliar with downtown Morristown. The restaurant is only a few doors off the Green. There's street parking if you're lucky (bring quarters). The de Hart street garage is close by, and the Dumont street lot isn't that far.

“Great!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great food. Bustling atmosphere. Tables were too close together, though, and it was noisy, but the food was good. It's obviously a very popular place.

“Absolutely,hands down, the best Thai food”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I have eaten at Origin Morristown countless times now. It is our go to place for Thai food, a great meal or a special occasion. Any excuse to go there. The food is great always. We are bowled over by the fact that we have never had a bad dish there, ever. It is so consistently great that we bring our friends and family there so they can experience it too. No one has ever left disappointed. We have our favorites like any of the duck dishes, or the free range chicken or the Chilean seabass. But the salmon and rack of lamb are equally delicious. Most of the appetizers are fantastic but the Pad Thai and the Duck salad are among our favorites. The Origin Thai in Basking Ridge is also delicious and consistent. Don't know how they do it.

“Great Food, noisy acoustics downstairs”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Love love the food. Only good things to say. Many dishes tried and tasted and they have all been a big hit. we have spanned the menu without a complaint. So what is the problem? The downstairs seating, while stone and interesting, has horrible acoustics and you can't hear the person shouting right next to you!
