iSteaks originally started off as a stall at a corner coffeeshop in Serangoon Garden selling quality Western food at low prices. They then expanded into an actual restaurant at myVillage, still selling tasty food at affordable prices.

Affordably priced Western food yay!
iSteaks started off from a coffeeshop and eventually expanded into having a restaurant of their own, offering no-frills Western food in a clean and comfortable environment.
I ordered their Beef Spaghetti Bolognese ($9.50), which came with a substantial portion of pasta slathered in a sauce of ground meat and tomatoes. My only grouse of the dish was that it got a bit oily towards the end. The chicken popcorn is also worth a try, with $5.50 getting you a large bowl with huge chunks of addictive fried chicken. Personally, I did not enjoy their cream broccoli as I found the “cream” largely bland, and did not add much value to the dish. Thankfully, the miniature veggie trees were crunchy and cooked well.
The next time you are in Serangoon Gardens and want a good Western meal that won’t burn a hole in your pocket, drop by iSteaks. Also note that for the most part, this is a self-service sort of restaurant. I guess that’s how they keep their prices to a minimum!
I'd eat here until the cows can't come home
I’m someone who constantly craves for steak, but my barren wallet doesn’t necessarily agree with my cravings. Thankfully, a quick Google search introduced the inexpensive iSteaks to me, and I took off to Holland Village immediately.
For the price, the 250g Striploin Steak ($17.90) was pretty good - juicy, yummy and flavorful. The price is inclusive of 2 sides, which can be chosen from a range similar to that of Astons. I went with my favourite baked potato, as well as some corn. Everything I tasted was reminiscent of Astons - they were both equally tasty and extremely affordable, much to my wallet’s delight.
I couldn’t really figure out what sets iSteaks apart from Astons, other than the fact that iSteaks serves their buttered corn in a ceramic cup instead of on the cob, which is much more convenient. iSteaks is a bit more expensive though, so I’d say eat at whichever’s more convenient for you.
