“Taste very bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

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

“Cute Little Spot in San Mateo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

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.

“Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

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 one. The atmosphere very welcoming. They have a bar downstairs and the main restaurant is upstairs. They even put a twist on giving you the check. Ours was an old encyclopedia that had a square cut out of the inside to put the check and a pen.

“Pan-Asian Food Nirvana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

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 is more of a Pan 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 of bliss. The brussels sprouts are amazing; Gambas al ajo (garlic shrimp) pair will with the garlic rice are a must try; Long Life Garlic Noodles and Crab Butter Fried Rice are life changing -- food Nirvana!
