Enjoyable and good food with quick service. Not many options in the area and this is worth a look. Recommended.

Great food! Great service! Great atmosphere. Best Thai around. Try the papaya salad. The coconut rice cakes in it are awesome.

I have been to Origins for both personal and several client dinners and have had good experiences, not great but good. However, I called up to place an order and the "manager" at least that is what he called himself, who answered the phone was one of the most disrespectful and condescending people I have had to speak with. I... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant without much of an expectation and were surprised to find it full - we did have to wait for 20 min but it was very much worth it. The food was very tasty, well prepared and they also had many options to chose from. This is a BYOW restaurant but that is... More

I like the food, the location and the reliability. I don't like the lack of welcome from owner, the cramped tables and the bum's rush you get on busy evenings. The staff and environment are so much more inviting at the Somerville location, even though it is a little long in the tooth.

We had a luncheon for about 25 people. The service was excellent and efficient. The food was great! I would recommend the Oriental Chicken Salad or the Pad Thai. The lunch special came with a choice of soup or salad. No one was disappointed. Everything was lovely. This restaurant is easy to find and in a lovely little center very... More

I just started working in the area and found this restaurant. It was one of the best lunches I've ever had recently. I had the $14 "Grilled Chicken" papaya salad. It wasn't actually chicken, but even better... Cornish Hen! Two grilled thighs with a nice tangy taste, with a great green papaya salad, and a very rich and delicious coconut... More

The food is quite good. I've eaten Thai food in Thailand and Malaysia, and the food at Origin is quite decent as far as American Asian food goes. Their lunch specials are great value, but dinner and a-la-carte meals can get expensive. Atmosphere is absolutely phenomenal, really nice building.

This is my favorite Thai restaurant. I've had so many different things off of their menu and every time is delicious. Some of my favorites are the Shrimp Sate appetizer, Steamed Vietnamese Rice Ravioli appetizer, Pad Khing with shrimp entree, and Gra Praw entree. All their dishes are so rich and flavorful. This restaurant is ALWAYS busy so reservations are... More

For a Thursday night, I found it somewhat empty, so we had a choice of tables. Atmosphere is always appealing with low light level and comfortable seating. Service is spot on with not too much fuss and not having to wait to long.
