Under guidance we tried this fusion restaurant in the heart of Manhattan, since we wanted to try something Asian and it was a very pleasant experience . The place is very nice and offers a wide choice of dishes. We've tried different types of noodles and they were all delicious and they had special flavours. The staff was very polite.... More

Tasty food, served in an unfussy way. Good range of choice on the menu and the dumplings are particularly good

It's great to hear you feel like you can't go wrong with our menu, Mike! We're pretty partial to the dumplings ourselves, so it's great to see you're a big fan of 'em, too. Looking forward to serving up more of your favorites sometime soon. Take care, Edward, General Manager More

Decent place to have a sit down meal that is fast and lower priced. Food was decent, but nothing to go too far out of your way for.

Republic has great Asian food, large portions (easily enough for two), and reasonable prices. Service is attentive and fast, with any passing waiter eager to help. The only thing to note is that the acoustics during busy hours make conversation difficult (but not impossible). All in all - nice, affordable, fun.

Don't get me wrong, this place is fine and the food is good, the ambient is nice and if you don't get here early on a Friday night you'll probably have to wait a while to get seated, but overall, there is nothing special to make it stand above any other places.

While we're glad you're a fan in general, we really wish we stood out to you more. The last thing we would want is for the wait to take away from your visits with us and it's a bummer to hear that's the case. Our menu's something really proud of, though, so we like to think you've just not tried... More

This is one of my favorite noodle places in the city. It's in Union Square -- so its a great choice if you are showing people around. The vegetarian curry noodle soup is my favorite...They serve large portions at reasonable prices. Nice wine list. Delicious food. Great service. They have communal tables in the back. The only downside at times... More

Great Asian restaurant near Union Square Park. Stopped in around 11:30 for Saturday lunch. Served right away. I ordered green papaya salad and sautéed beef salad along with coconut lime cooler. Everything tastes fresh with complex flavors. Loved my entire meal and refreshing drink! Don't come to NYC often but will add this place to visit again!

It's wonderful to hear you were loving every bite of your meal -- that's music to our ears! The Green Papaya Salad's a big favorite around here, so it's great to see you were so partial to it. We can't wait to welcome you back again the next time you're in New York. 'Til then, Edward, General Manager More

Nice asian food, but definitely not the best Thai in the city. I liked the seating plan of the place, although it can do with a little better acoustics as you really have to strain to listen to the other person.

Glad you enjoy the setup! That said, we wish you were digging our Pad Thai just as much. Our dishes are something we're really proud of, so we like to think we've got the perfect one for you on our menu -- we've just got to figure out what it is. Looking forward to impressing you more in the future.... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
