“Do you like Noodles - go if you are near Union Square”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We were next door at the Heartland Brewery which got too loud with the World Cup game so we went next door to The Republic which has about 10 tables outside. The waiter said we had to order food to eat outside but relented as there was a table available. Anyhow we ordered the Pad Thai noodles ($15) and there was plenty for two and was very tasty. I had never had noodles so I didn't know what to expect. There was a happy hour special on drinks, so I ordered wine (Malbec) which was $4.00 a drinkable. I went inside and noticed the community tables and ultra-ultra large size TV screens taking up the whole wall. Definitely stop at this place if you want or like Noodles and are in the Union Square area. The street in front was closed for some reason so there were no cars going by, but plenty of people. Apparently in the summer there is a open air fair for plants, herbs some food, etc. Stopped in but did not need any plants. Also as of June, 2014 the Market Cafe opened up inside the Square. Not big, but has a nice bar, nice talent there and atmosphere was nice.

“Cute Thai Spot!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I used to come here for lunch between 2006-2007; I was never disappointed with their service or food but how many times can one possibly each Thai?

“Amazing Noodles!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

You really can't go wrong in this noodle place. Each one of the 'broth noodles' dishes are good. The dry noodle dishes are really good too. The Pad Thai was especially good and the Sauteed Beef Salad was good too. The ambiance is upbeat and it is a great place to meet friends.

Good portions and reasonable prices, but after an hour wait to be seated outside it was so disappointing to be served tasteless noodles. Other people's dishes did look better but the Vegetable curry I ordered lacked vegetables (oddly!), flavor and satisfaction.

“Superb on all accounts”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We visited here based on a suggestion by the wonderful staff at our hotel (SIXTY SoHo)... great idea. Loved the dinner we had there. The setting was awesome too, very casual. Service was great, very attentive staff ensured a good experience. They serve excellent noodles and small plate appetizers. Great selection of drinks. Very relaxing. I'd go back there for sure.
