"Consider Melange for your next dinner near Parsippany. The southeast Asian flair adds an interesting mix of spice, Indian and Chinese favors to come up with interesting dinners. Service was slow but we enjoyed the Jasmine tea and conversation. Our salmon, lettuce wraps, chili fish and spicy chicken dinners were worth the wait. Lovely owner makes you feel welcome"

"We travel for work and our group eats out every day of the week. This is only the second place in Parsippany/Morristown area that we returned to for another meal. The other was Il Capriccio. In fact we went to Melange two nights in a row and a few said they wanted to go back again tomorrow. The Jasmine tea, lettuce wraps (spicy), salmon, spicy crispy fish, Mongolian beef and chicken stir fry were all excellent."

"Good food, great selection, and attentive service. The hostess came by several times, food was served in order we wanted it and plates were brought to facilitate sharing. The warm tuna salad was amazing, as was the coconut shrimp."

"I would go back just for the owner, she was extremely pleasant as was the rest of her staff. There weren't many people there so you could hear individual conversations pretty well. We got the rice noodles with meat, very typical Asian with a lot of food. I would suggest asking for less sauce."

"Looking for a good dinner spot near hotel we were staying at in Parsippany, NJ, just happened to run across the listing on Yelp & Open Table for Melange and what a great find! French Thai/Pan Asian, really mostly Chinese and Thai, run by an Indian and Nepalese staff! Excellent food, reasonable prices, but note it is BYO. In a suburban office park right off main highways 46/80/287 and easy parking but not that easy to find the right strip mall where it is located. Right near Sheraton and Hyatt House. Wouldn't go far out of my way but if you're in the vicinity or staying at one of those hotels don't miss it!"

"Our foursome visited Melange for it's convenient location and menu including vegetarian dishes. The group hadn't been together in a year so there was a lot to talk about. The service was perfect. They did not rush us and we were able to enjoy good food and good conversation. We will be back again, for sure."

"We found Melange accidentally through Open Table and have eaten there a number of times. We especially like the Manchurian cauliflower and the curries. Siobahni, the owner is so lovely and makes guests feel as though they are dining in her home. My only suggestion is that it would be nice if they updated the menu occasionally or offered specials. But everything we've tried is wonderful."
