republic of noodles is the best place to have authentic oriental food. if u are a lover of oriental food you must visit this place, the food are just amazing! i can't have enough of their pork spare ribs, its very tender and full of flavor, just melts in the mouth. i love the soft shell crap and the stuff chicken wings too.... they always have delicious complimentary dish which opens the taste buds and makes us want to have more and more :) i have been to this restaurant about ten times, i love the ambience,the staffs, the food, the whole setting of the restaurant is very nice, it is perfect for a quiet dinner with special people. the staffs are courteous and welcoming. can't talk enough about this place and cannot get bored with their menu..apart from the menu, at times, if you tell them to customize it according to the likes of ur taste buds, they will do it!!
ONE HAS TO VISIT THIS PLACE TO ACTUALLY REALISE WHAT I AM TALKING BOUT :)

If you like good Asian cusine, I would definately recomment the Republic of Noodles in Bangalore. They serve Thai, Malaysian, Indosnesian, Vietnamese, Burmese and Cambodian authentic food. Few of their signature dishes are like Pork spare ribs, soft shell crab with roasted chilly paste, Indonesian soto soup, Khao soi with grilled chicken, Thai watery Jungle curry, Water chestnut rubies with sweeten coconut milk.

I was so impressed with the food prepared by Chef Surajit Ghara. He is truely innovative and knows how to blend flavours to maximise taste.

The ambience of the restaurant is wonderful.

I look forward to my next visit to Bangalore where I will be able to sample more varieties at the Republic of Noodles.

I live right by the lake in Bangalore. The tall imposing structure of the Lemon Tree hotel came up in no time competing with the RMZ building. Yet, for some reason, I never ventured to discover their fine dine offerings. I just assumed that being a small player, they would only be having a coffee shop.

It happened by chance that I was suggested by a friend to try out their Pan Asian offering titled Republic of Noodles.

Of course the hotel is very visible from a distance, but the neighbourhood is a bit disappointing. It is does not evoke a sense of fine dine and nor would it be a first choice for a dinner with friends and family! They should have done a better job. A word of caution, there is no valet, but the campus is quite small for you to park your ride yourself and then waltz in to a double height lobby. The restaurant is on the M level.

As soon as you get off the elevator, the door for RofN is en face. The lighting is mild yellow with red accents. The furniture for some reason is plastic wicker with bright orange tables. The walls are adorned by niches carrying oriental glass bottles highlighted with those red halogens. There are big black and white paintings of scenes from Cambodia or Laos (mostly from buddhist monk lifestyle) and a few small frames of various interesting travel stamps to those regions. There are water bodies and a split level of course to be able to create a small pond. The partitions between sofa tables is fake bamboos. However overall a small and cozy feel to the whole restaurant.

The staff is courteous and know the menu, but not as polished as you would expect at a Taj or an Oberoi!

Their drink menu is from their next door lounge called Slounge! The starters are well worth it. Across several occasions, I have sampled, water chestnut, beef satay, prawns and a tom kha soup. All highly recommended! The chef Surajit is friendly and can come out and suggest you some specials. The beef was well flavored and cooked to perfection. The peanut sauce was fresh! The soup had some squids and some prawns, really hearty. The stir fried prawns had a nice thai flavoring and a good kick to it.

In the mains I have experimented with a veg stir fry with chili basil, a bassa with roasted chili paste, a minced chicken stir fry, a green curry, some prawns and a massaman curry. Of these all, the massaman was too Indian for my taste as I had an over powering flavor of cinnamon and star anise. This hid the peanut taste a lot more than it should have. The bassa was soft, succulent with a great tasting paste. The green curry was well made and really fresh bird's eye chillies in it to give a distinct thai taste to it. I felt as if I was in Thailand! The minced chicken stir fry was with fresh basil and chillies. A good light sauce to go with Jasmine rice.

We also ordered Thai Basil noodles with chicken. The chicken was thinly sliced and cooked well. Of course by the time you eat the noodles, because of the sheer surface area exposed to the AC, they get cold and then lose the taste. Starch, such as noodles and pastas also suck in all the water from the dish and hence taste drier if eating later than when made.

We were most amazed by the desserts that we got to eat. The first time we ordered Tub Tim Krob. The water chestnuts, the ice and the milk. What a delicious combination. Next we were surprised by a pumpkin custard and a guava ice cream. Sounds weird, but trust me it is highly recommended. The flavours are not too strong and are very subtle. The blend of fruit with cream and sugar has been done with such care that it sits on your palette with exact balance!

The pricing is like any other 5 star. We ended up paying about 2.5K for 3 people each time, with non alcoholic drinks included. They also levy a 10% service charge.
