personal taste. We are a BYOB restaurant so please feel free to bring to your beverage to enjoy with your meal. For our lunch customers, we serve a four course special from Monday through Friday for only $9!

We happened upon Melange last year
by accident - looking for a restaurant in this area on Open Table to meet family coming from the other direction. This was our third visit. We have been incredibly impressed by the range and quality of their food. We have brought different people with us each time, and all of our guests have been very happy (including my very picky mother, several people who don't eat meat or shellfish as well as our sons/other friends who love to try anything). Outside of the dumpling appetizer which did not impress us, the other 5 apps and 15 entrees we have eaten have all been very good to fantastic (definitely get the Hakka Chili chicken!). we are confused as to why this place is not much busier!"

We had a group of 14 (kids
included) and they had our table ready upon arrival. Food was delicious; everyone found something they wanted to try (even picky children). The spicy-ness level was individualized and portions were large enough to share. The Manchurian cauliflower was an excellent appetizer (as noted in many reviews). When the bill came it wasn't itemized, but they accepted multiple credit cards and charged us by our accounting figures for each family (we had multiple families of 4, 3, and a single person). Considering we ordered drinks, appetizers, entrees, and desserts - bill was reasonable. Very friendly and accommodating staff! I reserved online, never having been to Melange, and received a phone confirmation and greeting."

I love their food because it's not
"dumbed down" as so many places do. They offer mild, medium, and very spicy and the result is what you ordered. My favorites are the Penang chicken, Mongolian beef, and Hakka chile lamb."

I enjoyed my lunch at Melange. The
food was very good, service very good. Great place to go for a work lunch"
Dined on 4/2/2014
Excellent selection of Thai and
Indian cuisine. The spicy chili lamb was tender and delicious as was the grilled Mahi Mahi. The owner was very pleasant and interested. There were many choices of different curreys (red, green, yellow) at what ever level of spice you wanted."

The food and service was
excellent. Can't wait to go again."
Dined on 1/31/2014
This place is always empty, but
the food is good. Always fresh and flavorful. I would reccomend this place."
Dined on 12/28/2013
This was a last minute dining
experiance since our other plans fell through. Whenever we are in the area this is where we will eat."
Dined on 10/26/2013
Only diners on a sat evening.
Service left a lot to be desired. Food was not as expected since we have dined here before."
Dined on 8/3/2013
gracious hosts and service,
excellent food...will return for sure"
Dined on 7/9/2013
They should just stick to their
expertise - Indian Chinese. The other items on the emnu such as Thai items were horrible."
Dined on 5/28/2013
food was as per expectation;
service left a a bit of bitter taste but satisfies overall."
Dined on 4/23/2013
service was horrible, we (and
other tables nearby) had to wait 20 minutes for a menu and when on the clock for lunch, that is unacceptable. we were in the process of leaving when they brough over a menu"
Dined on 3/22/2013
Food was tasty and interesting,
and the music and ambiance were surprisingly pleasant for a strip mall. I thought the prices were a little high for the venue. Also, you should note the restaurant is BYOB, and there are no liquor stores anywhere nearby."
Dined on 3/14/2013
This is a wonderful restaurant.
The food is "fusion" primarily Asian. Everything is fresh and well prepared. don't miss the cauliflower starter. I also really loved the papaya salad. Shibonni(?) the owner is also the hostess. She is so warm and gracious, you feel as though you are dining in her home."
Dined on 3/1/2013
understaffed. waited for 1-1/2
hours. had to eat in 2 minutes to get back to work. I am not going back there again."
Dined on 2/14/2013
First time visitor. The place was
almost empty, but it was late on a Tuesday night. Not planning to return. The menu has little imagination and is composed of 5 ingredients in every dish, just in different combinations. Spicing was overdone on everything. Too much heat to find any flavors - maybe some folks like that. Did not impress."
Dined on 1/15/2013
This was our third visit to
Melange. The food is consistently outstanding and we have enjoyed trying new things. The service is very professional. There were several families with young children but the noise was controlled and our server apologized for it. We will definitely return."
Dined on 12/24/2012
Excellent food and the owners are
extremly friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this place! Can get busy during lunch but that's just a sign of how good it is!"
Dined on 12/11/2012
It was our second visit to Melange
and they didn't disappoint. It was also their first open day since Hurricane Sandy closed them down. The food and service were terrific. It really is a wonderful Thai fusion restaurant and I look forward to many more meals there."
Dined on 11/9/2012
If you are looking for a
neighborhood avant-garde restaurant that serves flavorful and spicy cuisine - this is the place... Outstanding Indian/asian fusion cuisine. The ambience was intriguing and the service was excellent. But, most important, the food wass better than outstanding. Their ingredients were fresh; you must order one of their salads. Their shrimp served in a coconut bowl is an original - inspiring presentation and the taste will bring you back."
Dined on 8/28/2012
Food was ok and if you wish to
enjoy a vegetarian meal, there are good choices. I have eaten here primarily for lunch over the past year. We made reservations for dinner through open table. The owner made us very uncomfortable by asking us not to make our reservations directly through open table. She asked us to go to her link from open table to make reservations as it will save her money. She then complained about the per person charge from open table. She made us feel small and had caused them a problem. We will not return."
Dined on 8/21/2012
Our experience was relaxed and
would recommend it highly."
Dined on 8/18/2012
I found Melange to be spectacular
I enjoyed the pre-fix dinner menu and everything was very very good. We went out there before a comedy show and really enjoyed the overall experience, although I missed the belly dancing which I heard is something nice to experience. I would recommend this place it's great."
Dined on 8/17/2012
Some appetizers did not taste well
as they looked undercooked."
Dined on 8/17/2012
The food is pretty good for a
neighborhood Asian fusion restaurant. Very reasonably priced and BYBO is a plus."
Dined on 2/14/2012
Interesting take on "Asian
fusion". I had a hot and sour soup unlike any other I've eaten but quite good. Then "Peking duck" unlike any other I've eaten (no pancakes, for one) but still tasty. I'd go back, but not with wild enthusiasm."
Dined on 1/16/2012
The food was excellent and the
owners couldn't have been sweeter or more gracious and accomodating. While this is a bit out of the way for us, I'm sure we'll be back!"
Dined on 12/19/2011
Excellent food. Great sauces and
very,very attentive service"
Dined on 9/24/2011

Dined on 7/11/2011
The staff could not have been more
welcoming, efficient and gracious. We will be back!"
Dined on 5/11/2011
Always enjoy dining. Good lunch
specials and nice, intimate setting for dinner. I've have the green curry beef for lunch that included soup, salad, and egg roll. Staff is very attentive and owner very nice and thoughtful. Definitely a good spot to visit if in Parsippany."
Dined on 4/5/2011
They have an unbelievable $10
lunch deal. Very filling, very tasty. Will be back."
Dined on 3/4/2011
We did not enjoy the experience.
Our waiter ( who looked very young) did not know how to uncork our wine bottle-it was an expensive bottle of wine and I had cork pieces in my glass of wine. The food was greasy and the sauces on every dish were too heavy. We will not return!"
Dined on 2/14/2011
I'm not familiar with Parsippany,
and have not spent much time off of the main roads, so findig Melange after driving through both residential areas and a business park threw me off until I reached the small strip mall where Melange is located. It was a good place to meet a friend for lunch. The $10 lunch special included delicious cauliflower soup, spicy panang chicken, rice and two crispy, thin spring rolls. My friend had a salad with thai chicken and a wonderful dressing on the side. While she found the oddly shaped salad plate hard to eat from, she did enjoy the meal!"
Dined on 2/7/2011
Medium size restaurant,
comfortable decor. Large menu of asian/thai food combinations, served to your liking mild to very spicy. Entrees included a chicken dish that came looking more like rice balls than chicken, though the chicken was tasty. Also had the salmon which came with a cream sauce that over wealmed the taste of the fish. Service was the highlight of this visit. We had a 6 o'clock reservation and were the only people in the restaurant the majority of the time we were eating, one other couple, one of which knew the owner, came toward the end of our meal. This restaurant is also lost in what I believe to be a bad location. We will not return, too many good restaurants in the area."

Exciting menu choices and always
excellent food! Great service."
Dined on 12/16/2010
It was the first time I visited
Melange. The menu was good and the waitress was very polite. My party and I weren't able to find our waitress after dinner was served and I had a question about my order. That was a little frustrating. The host seemed to have stopped by to check in at our table more. I still would recommend to eat here but next time we'll bring wine as we were unaware of the BYOB rule."
Dined on 10/8/2010
This Asian Fusion restaurant is a
wonderful place to enjoy a variety of tastes. The host and hostess make you feel at home and are eager to share their favorites and to suggest dishes you may not have ordered. The place is very pretty. We have eaten here many times, referred many friends and have always been delighted with everything. A great find in an unexpected location!"
Dined on 8/28/2010
what a great, local unsung place.
I stumbled on this place and was overwhelmed."
