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

A very cozy lunch with friends. Easy to hear and take our time. BYOB. The perfect place to talk and share plates. The Thai basil mussels topped the list along with the noodle salad. The green curry was just okay. Wish there was more hot and spicy. Friendly service.

Origins is always a place my family and I know we could go to have a great meal and service. Been going here for years and will continue to. They seem to always have something new on the menu to try.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always amazing, no matter what you choose. This restaurant is Thai w/ a touch of French influences. The staff is friendly and accommodating even when you don't have a reservation. It's also a BYOB. Whether you're dining for a romantic dinner, dinner with friends or family or taking in a... More

Have been coming here for over 15 years. Never been disappointed in the food or service. Great seafood and duck. Can get a little loud at times. BYOB is a plus especially with grown children.

My wife and I have been here many times over the last 10 years. Always amazing. Flavors are unique and satisfying. Good options on the menu. Haven't had a meal I haven't loved. It's BYOB.
