“Delicious Noodles, Great Price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

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 :)

“A noodle bowl with bad service taste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

The noodle bowls we had were OK. The waiter was polite and helpful. The restaurant host was rude which was enough to ruin the meal. Republic is a bad copy of Wagamama.

“Getting delivery solves the only issue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

I order the food to be delivered to get around the noisy, hectic scene with communal tables. It's fun if you are in a crowd. The food is very good and tastes authentic with just the right amount of fresh cilantro where necessary. Unlike many restaurants, the delivery from here tasted just as good as eating in house. This is a go-to place when I am in the mood for Asian noodle dishes.

“Hot Bartender, Great Food, Good Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This spot is so much more than just a restaurant. It's an EXPERIENCE. I am a vegan, so my eating requirements are difficult to meet in most places, but not here. I had a variety of choices (yea!) I chose an excellent tofu Pad Thai and a cocktail.

We sat at the bar because it was quicker than waiting for a table. We arrived during Happy Hour though, so we had to wait even for that seating option, but it was worth the wait, let me tell you! The bar is right by the kitchen, which is open to the restaurant. As a former food service worker, I can say that I am always happy to be able to watch someone make my food. It gives me confidence in the quality, you know? I also enjoyed talking with the staff while I waited for my food. It was not a long wait at all. I will say though, as other reviewers have done, it is not the spot for an intimate meal. It is loud, noisy and busy. *Shrug* No problem. The bartender was hot, the food was excellent, the vibe was right and the price was nice. I will be back.
