Definitely me and my wife's favorite steak place. It's so worth it (price and taste wise) that on a particular month, we went to eat there every sunday. That's 4 times in one month. Even now with the economic slowdown and all, we still go there like 2-3 times/ month.
Word of caution though, the queue can be very long during lunch or dinner time. So coming at 2pm-5pm is very advisable to avoid queuing for too long although there maybe a short line of queue still.
Ordering the meal of your choice is very simple, pick one of the main dishes and it will come with 2 choices of hot or cold side dishes. My favorite which is also my wife's favorite is the New York Strip medium done. The portion is bigger than the prime sirloin. That's why we always opted for the New York Strip. =)
Waiting time for the food is quite reasonable which is 5-15 minutes ( can be more if you come at peak hours ). You can always order the mushroom soup as an appetizer while waiting for the main dish to come.
Dishes we usually order : 2 New York Strips, 2 Soups, 1 ice water, and 1 soft drink. The bill came around 35-38 dollars. So very reasonable for 2 big steaks. =)
Overall astons is somewhat quite good for me as price and taste wise is very reasonable. So for all of you that has not try astons, please do so. Totally worth your money. Go Try it, it's a must
I was at the Suntec branch this afternoon for lunch. I ordered the grill fish with 2 side dishes (onion rings & coleslaw). The fish is pretty good while the onion rings seems tasteless. The coleslaw taste similar to those you get to eat at KFC. Nothing special. The waiting time is definetly more than 15 mins (almost half an hour) & I was there at 11.30am!! The cashier was also having problem returning just SGD3 change back to me. It will really depends whether I want to come back to this place or not. If I so happens to have friends that hasn't try this place before, I may just bring them here.
I had the chance to sample Aston's New york strip (if I can recall it correctly) when their new branch opened at the new Sembawang Shopping Centre last February. I can say it was all good! The waiting time was acceptable (10 minutes, considering it was the opening day and boy! It's already packed with people!), the ambience is welcoming, and of course my food deserved an applause! The location of their outlet also allowed them to put an al fresco dining experience, and what more, it's on the topmost floor of the mall. Wish you all the best Aston's!
ASTONS ! I LOVE THIS PLACE !!! The food first. The variety of foods there will simply spoil you ! I especially enjoy the steaks and grilled fish(dory i think) The atmosphere is cosy which is perfect for couple dining and having the whole family come together for a good western meal.
I also visited the ASTONS somemore in the heartlands of Tampines(near SAFRA) and the quality of the food is still there. Great Food !
However you might have to queue for at least 30-60 mins on average if it's really crowded. If you don't mind having Western dining at a simple kopitiam, do give the other ASTONS a visit :)
Good quality food, cheap and fast service.
I like their grilled fish. Although the flavour is not strong enough, the texture is nice because i find it well grilled on the outside and the softness is still maintained inside. Also there was no fishy taste.
But if you are one who go for heavily flavoured food, this might not be for you.
Their fries are pretty nice as well. Soft in the inside and crispy on the outside.
Their prices are pretty affordable too. Definitely won't burn a whole in your pocket (:
Service was rather good as we did not have to wait too long for the food to arrive.
A placce to go if you are looking for affordable and nice western food.
Astons at Katong has to be my fav location for a deccent western lunch.
Do try to come early or expect to wait at least 20-30mins
Every main course comes with two side dishes like rice, mashed potatos, sauteed vegs etc.
The steaks are a definite value for money!
And the dish i would recommand is the IEAT burger
A delish 100% beef patty, with strings of yummy coated fried onions & bacon.
I usually go with my folks, a steak dish, a burger & a fish or chicken for 3 pax wld cost us abt $30
I was always curious about the long queues outside Astons. One day, my curiosities beat me to it and I joined the never-ending queue. It was not a long wait to be seated, but waiting for the food was longer than I expected. I guess it was because of the lunch time hour, but I seriously feel that they were short of staff.
It took quite some time to get hold of the waiter to take down your order. Then, you had to wait even longer for the food to come. All in all, it was quite a wait before the food came.
The food was not bad though, and filling. And it is pretty cheap compared to other western food restaurants. But if I had to wait that long, I think I will go somewhere else..
