Older Asian women know how to pour! The Republic Cafe is known among the more versed drinkers as the go-to spot for lunchtime refreshers.

Cool Atmosphere, average food – While it is a funky, cool, old fashioned place to have a drink, that is all it is. The Republic may be an institution, but the food is really marginal, at best. The chicken is stringy and the beef had fat on it. The shrimp was not fresh, though the sauce was good. Serive suffices, but, all in all, why waste your time in Chinatownm at this place when there are so many better places to go?

Fun! – There's not much to say about this place except good food, strong drinks, reasonable prices, and friendly service! Give it a try! You'll be surprised.

Overthrow this Republic – Tried this place for lunch based on recommendations here in CitySearch. There was only one other couple in the place for lunch, so quiet does describe the atmosphere. I ordered the lunch special and was able to choose two items for only $3.50, and so the price was right. The special included hot tea and soup. The hot and sour soup was a strange brownish color but it tasted good. My sweet & sour chicken was done in by way too much batter. The egg roll was also battered before being deep fried. I did not enjoy the food at all. The presentation was grim and the taste was not much better. The service was pleasant, though.

Can't beat It – Good food and dimly lit! More than you can eat. Take home the leftovers for a couple more great meals.

Underrated!!!!!! – Republic Cafe is highly underrated or unnoticed??

The staff is really nice, the place is generally pretty quiet. The food is really good and cheap!!! It's my favorite place in Chinatown.

Skip Hung Far Low, I'm unimpressed with the food there. Try Republic Cafe, you won't be sorry. They have especially good Szechuan, and Mongolian beef.
