“Good food, loud place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Republic is known for their noodle bowls with unique combinations and flavors. The restraunt was very loud and hectic as there was no real place to check for a table. We were seated right next to the door which was very unpleasnt as it was freezing out and the door was constantly being opened. So....good food but you may have to shout a little to talk with friends.

“Noodles, noodles, Noodles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Our group of 5 was seated in 5 minutes on a Saturday night and we had great service. I had the BBQ Beef, which was excellent. Prices are what you'd expect in the City. I think my meal was $15 plus the $6 beer. Pretty reasonable all things considered. I'd definitely send people back after my first visit.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Great Vegan, Veg and regular food. My family are vegan but I'm not, which usually poses a problem. Republic has everything and it's reasonably priced and good.

“Great casual dining Asian fusion.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Very noisy as you enter and the music is loudest towards the front. I would recommend selecting a table down the back away from the hustle and bustle. The soups and dumplings are as good as any I have had in Asia. Be sure to try the eggplant and tofu dishes, Highly recommended for casual dining with friends or family.

“Trendy and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Love the atmosphere, the waiters are easy going and we asked about the menu and what he would recommend he was very helpful. The meal was good and tasty. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends visiting NY. It was a bit crowded when we visited, but it didn't really bother us.
