Completely unpretentious place with somewhat patchy service - however the food is top notch. A simple Menu based on meat, meat and a little fish.

Very reasonable prices.Our waitress was excellent.The menu is good,we had 2 burgers and 1 steak with sides.Everything was delicious.It must be a popular place as it was full and people kept on coming. We were going to the Cinema after so it was very handy to eat here first. Very relaxed atmosphere & we really enjoyed it and would visit... More

Had dinner with friends at Bugis+. The food was served quickly after we ordered at the counter upon entering the restaurant. The meal is affordable and not bad at all. The servers are all smiley and friendly. Will definitely come back again.

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.
