Aston's is pretty much synonymous with steaks here in Singapore, and that reputation is well-deserved, with reasonably priced options for meat lovers. Service is prompt, quick and efficient but the steaks themselves, whilst good, isn't going to be anything to write home about. Nonetheless, if you're craving for a decent, no-frills steak dinner, this is still your best bet.

My dinner tonight was simply very disappointing and very bad. My wife was in your neighbourhood and she brought home a takeaway order of bourbon pork ribs. The barbecued pork ribs was very dry and very very tough, and I suspect the ribs were not freshly barbecued but likely re-barbecued. I felt I was eating some tough bak-kwa! I had... More

Astons have tapped into a niche market in Singapore appealing to a client base who want gourmet steaks but don't want to pay exorbitant prices. Steaks meals under $20 and a good variety of choice from grilled chicken , spaghetti and burgers to surf and turf combos. One thing I don't like is why I have to pay 30 cents... More

Small restaurant. Normally it's full but we manage to always get a table. The food is not too bad. It's not amazing but it's not terrible either. It's decently priced. Good place to go if you're on a budget and looking for some burgers or steaks

There are many branches of Aston all over Singapore and it is an excellent place to get nice steaks and ribs for reasonable prices. A visit to any branch will not disappoint. However, given its quality and reasonable prices, the restaurant can be crowded especially for weekends, and the waiting queue long. If you are ordering take out, it is... More

This is a very popular steak restaurant in the Katong area of East Coast Road. I had to line up on a Tuesday evening to get a table for one. The steak was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable particularly considering the quality of the steak.

It’s my most favorite restaurant when it comes for grilled foods and BBQ. I love their dish combinations and the variety of sides is good. Though it’s crowded most times, I don’t mind waiting a bit longer for their lovely Pork Chop with wedges. The service is not so great. But, it can be much better and it would create... More

We ate with 6 adults and 3 small children. Our order was taken while we were outside waiting and came to us quickly. We thoroughly enjoyed our food.

I was in Mapletree Business Park, Singapore for a meeting and decided to have a late, quick dinner in Astons with colleagues. I ordered steak (forgot what kind of steak), but when everyone had finished their own dinners, mine has not come yet. I guessed they forgot to process mine. But overall, the taste was so great, and look very... More

We were seated but noone came to take our order until I had to call the waitress. After another 10 minutes I called the manager as our drinks were not even ready. Dinner was ok, food good. Furniture a bit old and suffering. Waiters don't know how to do their jobs.

The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding.
