Went to Andaman with six friends on a recent Friday evening. We'd heard good things about it, saw that there had been a change in ownership, and that might have hurt the quality somewhat. Well, I'm here to tell you that is not the case. We each had a different main course, we shared appetizers, and all meals were terrific. Seafood all prepared well, appetizers and sides all quite good, service friendly and attentive.
Been looking for good Thai in the Morristown area, and we have found it at Andaman!

Under new ownership and a new chef that can't compare to the previous owner/chef.
Quality dropped big time and the amount of food is much less.

An American man owns Andaman now and knows nothing about Thai food.
He claims his mail-order-bride is from Thailand and cooks the food.....and that's what it taste like...a civilan acting as a chef.

I was a big fan of the old Andaman and found it to be the best and most consistant restaurant around.

Now, the new owner...who by the way is arrogant as he talks to you when we told him we loved the previous chef...claims his wife is a great chef...well SHE"S NOT!

The Waitress stayed and is very nice. Once they lose her, their new business will go out of business. They will not make it the way they treat old customers and the quality and quantity of food.

Won't ever go back....now I will go to Origin who is good but not as good as the old Andaman chef...who by the way the owner of Origin and the old Andaman Chef used to cook together in New York City before opening up thei restaurants.

I frequented Andaman Sea Recipes now called Thai Andaman Sea at least once a week for the past four years. In September they went under new ownership. Except for the head waitress who stayed the food quality fell big time. Although the previous owner was not a great businessman, he sure knew how to cook.....what a chef.
My diet consists of 70% Thai food as I have eaten in at least 40 Thai restaurants in State and out of State. The new chef at Andaman is okay at best and not worth the extra time or miles to go there.
The owner is an American male who seems very nasty and will lose customers with his not so friendly attitude.
The old Andaman was my favorite restaurant which you can always count on GREAT food and the most consistent restaurant I have ever eaten at.
I have been to the new Andaman about four times trying to recapture some of the magic the old Andaman had but failed.
I will never go back!

the food is very good but dont go if your in a hurry.it seems like the owner is pushing waiting staff to do many jobs other than waiting to save a buck.the waitress always disapears into kitchen to help cook,make deserts and salads.i feel so sorry to the girl working her heels soar.i look forward to a new owner or managment to correct the sweatshop attitude of selfish owner.

The location of Andaman Sea in front of Morristown train station is maybe not the fanciest in the area, the external aspect of the restaurant would need more attention to be attractive (some bulbs in the restaurant sign have not been fixed for months), but when you have braved these obstacles and when the food is coming, you quickly forget them.
Excellent traditional Thai food, good selection, fair price (BYO) , kind service when many so-called "Thai" restaurants in the area are a junk mixture of Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese ... dishes.
In Adaman Sea , you really enjoy the Thai taste (try it spicy !).
