Thavma is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent, the servers attentive and very warm and friendly, and we consistently have an excellent meal.
I would highly recommend it for a special occasion or just to have a special meal.

We were there for dinner and sat in the balcony. It was a perfect evening and the atmosphere was lively and yet not noisy. The food was good and service was excellent.

Great lunch with the family. We sat outdoors and felt well attended to, as well as safe health wise. Food was fabulous, as was the service. We'll be back for sure. This is one of our favorites when we are in North Jersey!

Excellent food, value, and service. Our waiter was very attentive without being overbearing! (This was our second time being served by the man in the Texas Longhorn mask and will ask for his section going forward.) Wonderful Greek salad! The swordfish was superb and so was the shrimp and scallop special! One suggestion, please add more lighting to the patio, it was really dark for the last 30 minutes of our meal.

The food is always very well seasoned and very well prepared with the best ingredients. During these past 12 months of the pandemic we must have taken out from them at least a dozen times and today I was so happy to return to the restaurant and sit on its lovely terrace

Chris was our waiter, such a nice guy. Got the hummus special, topped with guac and red wine - perfection !!! The pita chips are a little too fried and thick. I love the warm hot fresh pita, yum !!! I would love more onions and peppers on the shiskabob, you get one or two pieces of veggies at most. The meat is delish, salad dressing is drinkable and they sell it to-go.
