Astons Specialities at Safra Toa Payoh

The chain of restaurants bearing the ASTON name seem to be very popular.  There are always queues at the entrance on weekends, so I decided to give them a try.

We arrived at Aston at Safra Toa Payoh at around 7.20pm on a Friday night.  There was a short queue there.  Usually in a restaurant, you will be seated first, read the menu, place your order, and before you go, pay your bill.  At Aston, obviously the sequence is a bit different.  You read the menu when you are still in the queue.  Place your orders when it is your turn, and then make the payment at the cashier, and then you will be seated.  Food will be served after that.  I will say it is one optimization of the work flow, more efficient for the kitchen and also in terms of table turn-around.

The dining environment is pleasant, tables are not too close together.

I ordered a medium-well steak, which comes with two side dishes, which you can choose from their menu of both cold and hot side dishes.

The food is quite ok, not premium grade no doubt, but it is reasonable and acceptable.  For the two of us, food plus beverage was only S$32 after a 10% Safra member discount.  I think this is very reasonably priced.
