Good value for Money steak

I stay at Katong and always wondered why there is a queue outside Astons. It was originally at Alibaba, but it started its own shops to great success. With food so expensive these days, a steak would normally go for 20-30$ in a restaurant, but Astons was $15 so it's 30% cheaper, and the taste is quite good too, fresh because the volume is simply so high here! When I get tired of eating food courts steaks but cannot afford restaurant steaks, I will think of Astons.

Food is Quite Nice but Service cannot make it

Order Black Pepper Chicken go with Ice Chocolate Drinks & Spicy Chicken Spaghetti with Mushroom Soup + Root Beer. Food quite okay, Ice Chocolate is warm chocolate dont feel the cold at all, right the end I still request ice to add myself. Arrived for late dinner at 9pm, serve me a table in e mid of the path like no where else. I request to have a corner sit and mention is only for 4pax but I seen alot of couple 2 pax sitting as well but why I am not able to? is okay I just sit at the seat allocated and the server there ask me to change due to they want to do cleaning as they are closing soon. When I changed to another table, another server asked me a weird Qns, why we changed inform? Oh pls! is your internal workmate ask me to change why mus I do a job to tell u all? Service really is problem. From the start I stepped in, no one serve us a table till I go right in to the restaurant req for table, picking table, change table, qns customer. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE.

Value for money

I first visited aston's a few years back when I didn't know how to appreciate the yummy goodness of beef. Now my dad and I frequent the T1 outlet and this outlet more, because of after food shopping at i12 katong. I ordered a porterhouse and dad had a prime ribeye xtra cut. Steak was good, both our meat had a smokey flavor to it, not sure about what they added or maybe they grilled them over charcoal. I like my steak medium rare but dad isn't a steak expert and has his well done (so wrong on so many levels, if you seriously despise raw beef then AT LEAST go for a medium). I think it's because of the cultural difference that makes Asians in general dislike the idea of raw beef. For the sides, I had Mac & cheese with coleslaw while dad had a baked potato which I unfortunately did not get the opportunity to try because dad really likes his potatoes. I feel that the Mac & cheese sauce is somewhere between water and gravy, it's just not the right consistency for me and I would have definitely preferred it slightly thicker with more 'volume'. We also ordered a mushroom soup side which came in the middle of our steak meal, is it hard to ladle your premade diluted canned soup into a bowl and dump two pretoasted garlic bread slices on the side? Overall it's a great experience, really. I don't order any other main but beef, I just don't want anything but valuable money worthy beef whenever I visit aston's :)

Pretty good for this price

It's good for a cheapish meal if you are craving for steak. They usually get it done just right. But not consistent. Service is alright. For this price, it is actually pretty good value.

Poor quality food & service

I live nearby and always wonder why there's huge queues of people waiting for a table there. I know it's cheap but why would you allow yourself to eat poor quality food that tries to look Western but is nowhere near the real thing. I tried it here twice but the food just doesn't look good, taste good and is made of substandard products/quality (cheap beef = bad cow people) It even makes the bad service look good!
