“Good value, flavorful food in a noisy setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

I keep returning to this large place for its good choices of flavorful food at very moderate prices. Whether it's one of the many Thai soups or dry entrees, all are brimming with flavor and quite satisfying. You don't walk away hungry after dining at Republic. Its cocktail menu also offers imaginative drinks. The downside is that coming here in the evening confronts the patron with a deafening hall--so loud that anyone caring to have a conversation would be well advised to bring a megaphone!

“Dinner was inedible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

I went to Republic for a friend's birthday. Drinks and appetizers were all very good. Unfortunately, I ordered a vegetarian dinner, and it was served cold. It was absolutely horrible and I couldn't eat it, which is very rare for me to not even eat something. I ended up eating off my husband's duck dinner, which was very good.

The appetizers and drinks here were fabulous and you get a very large portion. My dinner was awful though, so I can't give it more than 2 stars. Pricing was very fair for NYC as well.

“Best for lunch or afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

Excellent food. Fresh, tasty, great menu, and you can't get wrong with picking up the dish. The location on Union Square is perfect. The staff is so accomodating and friendly, The decoration is modern and fun. Be aware that the plates are huge - nevertheless, we have had no problem enjoying it till the last drop/ bite as it was so tasty. Definitely I'll be back when around

“A lot of food for cheap, but it's GREAT food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Was down in New York City with friends from home and college, and we needed a place that could accommodate a seating for 14. This place did the trick, and when we finally got around to ordering couldn't believe the prices. For $13, you got a huge meal that could probably feed two people, but for me it was perfect.... actually finished my friends meal too, it was that good. Great Thai food, highly recommend it.
