If you are looking for the good and affordable western restaurant, you might at the right place as Aston is famous with it's good price and food. The restaurant is located at the shop row behind the Malaysian food street beside the USS. You may find it is quite difficult to access if you are not familiar with place. 

I would advise you, just walk through the Malaysian food street and go to the back door and Aston will be at your right side corner.

Food are standard as usual but the service there might be not good compared to other branches.

We order grilled fish with herb and 3 chicken set with different flavor. All came with two side dishes along. We also order their mushroom soup with garlic bread. The garlic bread is so crunchy and tasty.

I paid my visit with my friends during a weekend Sunday dinner. This branch is quite huge with many seats offered. There's a short queue when we were there.

They offered good range of Italian food. The food is standard and ordinary. However with the price offered, it's worth a try.

We tried their baked fish with potato wedges which I think it is the best dished we ordered.

The seafood paella was good too but a tad too dry.

The squid ink spaghetti is not my taste though because it was too dry.

We order two soup to share which is good and tasty.

I paid my visit to this hotel restaurant for lunch buffet during my company training on weekday. The place is located at the lobby of hotel. It offered Asian style buffet which mostly local food. 

It was a standard buffet meal but they do offer a live station for satay outside the hotel. You can try the nyonya kueh and kueh pie tie as well. They offer a good salad selection too.

The food I tried is chicken pie which was generous in filling and quite tasty. Their salad selection taste were good also. I love their ondeh-ondeh as the gula melaka flowing in the filling was just perfect for me. The rich chocolate tart was really rich in chocolate which is a little too sweet for me.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Kueh pie tie

Aston is my regular western restaurant if I want to have western cuisine but don't want to splurge too much. It always has a long queue but you may get seat real fast.

They offer good range of main course from beef, fish, chicken, spaghetti, lamb. The main course except spaghetti come with two side dishes which separately hot and cold.

I had tried their grilled dory fish with herb set with two side dishes. It was my favorite among all in the menu. The sauce is just well matched with the fish.

The another set I tried was teriyaki grilled chicken chop which was also good in taste.

I like their macaroni and cheese and corn and house vegetable. 

They served food very fast even the place was crowded. It's like a fast good chain restaurant.

This hotel restaurant offered credit card promotion 1 for 1 during certain period. It's worth a try if for promotion but not worth for the usual prices.

I went for dinner on a weekday night. The food they offered are standard but not much and limited variety..

The dessert spread is quite good in hotel standard. Taste wise, the chocolate cake was decent and others was just passable.
