Will never come back again. Not worth it. Foods is too sweet. And it's not enough for an adult. Beef doesn't taste like beef. Chicken is like super. Is there a real chief over there

The staffs are very friendly. Good cocktails drinks but the food is a bit on the greasy and salty side. Perhaps that's what people crave for when they're drinking. Much younger crowd. Cute little spot.

If you are looking for a unique selection of dishes, you'll find it here. Their menu is a haven for all pallets. Their fresh spicey noodles were amazingly good. Just enough heat to know it's there but not so hot that I had to wipe my forehead. We each got two dishes to share because we couldn't decide on just... More

The food is served to share -- tapas/family style -- so order a few mains and starters for everyone at the table to share. This is a fun way to try everything! Attic is a gem in the busy restaurant row of South B street. Although this restaurant is categorized on FB and Yelp as Chinese..that it is not. It... More

As others have said, this place is more of an Asian fusion restaurant than just a Chinese restaurant. They are able to blend many of the different styles of cuisines offered in Asia into one menu. We had a large party and so we ordered many of their dishes to try: quinoa and kale salad, ahi tuna, sesame cucumber, adobo... More

Stopped in here for dinner with two friends - delicious food. Had the sweet potato fries, edamame, white tuna poke, crispy pork stir fry, garlic noodles, sizzling sizig and olive oil poached gambas al ajillo - everything was spot on - we ate everything that was served. Beer and wine selection was sparse. Highly recommended.

Attic is a gem in the busy restaurant row of South B street. Although this restaurant is categorized on FB and Yelp as Chinese..that it is not. It is more Asian fusion with a heavy emphasis on the Filipino roots it build upon. Chef Tim Luym mixes traditional Filipino food with other Asian influence and comes up with wonderful, mouthfuls...

Absolutely wonderful dinner at Attic tonight. We arrived at about 7:15pm on a Thursday night. There were several empty tables but she told us it would be a 10-15 minute wait so we went to the small upstairs bar. It took a while to get service but the bartender was friendly. We ordered and received our drinks and then were... More

From the outside this doesn't look like much and you have to go upstairs from the bar but what a great restaurant. The food was very different. We had garlic shrimp, steak (tender and cut into small pieces flavored wonderfully) and the garlic noodles. I would go back and try the rest of the food next time I am in... More
