Origins is one of the best restaurants in the Somerville are. The food is reliably excellent, and the service is very good. It is definitely on the noisy side, and atmosphere is not its strong point.

Have never had a bad meal here and it is my favorite lunch spot. It has great dinners too, but I love it for lunch. The restaurant is located on a "pedestrian mall" in downtown Somerville. It is actually located in an old Chinese laundry and it has the copper ceiling and open feel on the ceiling. The food choices... More

How's the food you ask? I don't know. We had a 7:30 reservation and when we arrived, people were crowded in the entry way, all with 7:30 reservations and no tables. They didn't even have a hostess to take names and tell us how long the wait would be. After waiting for about 10 minutes with no hostess to help,... More

EXcellent thai food with great ambiance and wonderful energy since the place is always buzzing. We love downtown Somerville and Division street where Origin is located is a great hangout spot always. Weekends tend to be crowded and busy so don't forget to make reservations ahead of time - especially in summer. Sometimes the spice level is high - so... More

We had a wonderful meal here. Excellent, attentive service. Love the cozy atmosphere on a cold winter night. I enjoyed the 'gang keaw wan' - a green curry with huge shrimp. Just delicious! Beautiful presentation too. It was a very generous portion that I could not finish. The 'sweet sticky rice with mango' was an excellent finish to the meal.... More
