    Saigon Grill is not far from Union Square. Vietnamese
    Spice on 12th street (kind of mini chain of Thai but pretty good)
    Republic is located right in Union Square.

      I'l 2nd Republic and Saigon Grill.. Spice i thought was Indian, there must be another place near 12th and university with spice in its name that is indian. Lan is near union square, many chowhounders like it alot. you also have Laut ( malaysian) and 15 east ( japanese) right there as well

        I think you're thinking of Cafe Spice which is Indian. Spice is on 13th & University and is Thai.

        Zabb city on 13th st is very good thai, a bit closer to the east village, but better food than Republic.

            Just had a great meal at Aja (6th Ave between 9 & 10). I walked in pretty doubtful, but walked away very satisfied. Ample portions and quality eats.
