Not the usual Thai menu (witness the beautiful salmon-sashimi salad) and not the usual middling preparation. The food at Republic is exceptionally fresh and lively, especially at these prices. We like the pad Thai and the fried wontons with pimiento-plum sauce. There are lots of vegetarian choices, of course, as well as fresh-squeezed juices.
