We came here for a quick lunch before a Broadway show. There is a small patio outside which would be great in good weather. The interior is quite nice..very simple zen with a contemporary touch. The restaurant was not very busy and the service was nice and helpful with questions. The menu is very pan-asian (Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian, Chinese ,... More

We were next door at the Heartland Brewery which got too loud with the World Cup game so we went next door to The Republic which has about 10 tables outside. The waiter said we had to order food to eat outside but relented as there was a table available. Anyhow we ordered the Pad Thai noodles ($15) and there... More

I used to come here for lunch between 2006-2007; I was never disappointed with their service or food but how many times can one possibly each Thai?

You really can't go wrong in this noodle place. Each one of the 'broth noodles' dishes are good. The dry noodle dishes are really good too. The Pad Thai was especially good and the Sauteed Beef Salad was good too. The ambiance is upbeat and it is a great place to meet friends.

Good portions and reasonable prices, but after an hour wait to be seated outside it was so disappointing to be served tasteless noodles. Other people's dishes did look better but the Vegetable curry I ordered lacked vegetables (oddly!), flavor and satisfaction.

We visited here based on a suggestion by the wonderful staff at our hotel (SIXTY SoHo)... great idea. Loved the dinner we had there. The setting was awesome too, very casual. Service was great, very attentive staff ensured a good experience. They serve excellent noodles and small plate appetizers. Great selection of drinks. Very relaxing. I'd go back there for... More

Ok, so I'll admit the fact we ate there for lunch while a World Cup match was being aired on the huge projection TV screen may have helped make the atmosphere so much fun, but even without the feel-good crowd the good food, generous portions and reasonable prices make this place our new go-to-favorite for casual hearty fare. This is... More

If you havent been here before, I highly recommend it. I love this place- it is so delicious and so fresh. The service isnt the beat, but the food is 100% worth it. I always get the chicken pad thai and am always beyond satisfied!! The atmosphere and decor is really pretty as well.

good food, pretty reasonable prices and the location is good for people who want to sit outside and feel the buzz of the city. I really enjoyed it. The food as i've seen mentioned in other reviews, is always fresh.

very delicious noodles! Great price and location. Stopped here after wandering areas near Union Square. My friend had a spicy dish and loved it. You can't go wrong with any of the dishes here from what I've heard :)
