Aster Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Very enjoyable experience in modern airy surroundings. Food is experience in itself. Very different to your average restaurant. Dishes needed some explaining which the maitre d readily provided. Not hurried very liaise faire. Only quibble, bit pricey for what we had.
We were at Aster for new year eve. The special meal they prepared was good. We chose a meal with wine accordance. I am an amateur of wine and I found the wine waitress outstanding. She took time to know which kind of wine we like and she perfectly selected the wines in this regard. This girl (from Spain) knows her job !
We had dinner here before a show next door at the Victoria Palace. Friendly and professional service, great food and good atmosphere. Didn’t have time for desserts this time but definitely will be back soon. Highlights were the truffled potatoes and the salmon starter.
We chose this restaurant because it had great reviews and was close to Victoria Station and we weren't disappointed. It's beautifully decked out and the staff and attentive and friendly. We enjoyed the food, some of which was unusual as it had a Scandanavian influence, but it was all delicious. We had the Pre-Theatre option which came with a glass of Champagne and a choice of two or three courses. We tried all the options on this menu between us and everyone was happy with the food. There was what looked like a business get-together nearus with people mingling and having drinks and canapes and they all looked like they were enjoying themselves too! A lovely big space so plenty of room for all. Would definitely eat here again.
Taste of the food was unbelievably authentic and inspiring!
We'll done, Finnish chef Helena, and the whole team.
Every portion looked amazing , like a piece of art, and the tastes worked so well together.
Service was excellent, all the details were taken on board.
We were very well looked after the whole evening, and we'll definitely come back soon!
Myself and 2 friends thought we'd try here for a quick Saturday lunch. We were sat upstairs. I think it was a little quieter up here as there was a live dj downstairs. We were rather envious of everyone around us as they were all drinking bubbles! (There was a very civilized group of groom and groomsmen on the next table!) We had a lovely lunch with tea and coffee. Would definitely return.
Beautiful restaurant with great cross section of food. I had sea bream with a mushroom sauce. Shouldn't work but was totally delicious. they were very helpful in catering for a vegan friend. Stunning puddings (choc /salted caramel). Super convenient for victoria station as well. Staff were v friendly and helpful.
Had a great meal with my daughter who is vegetarian. I have salmon followed by sea bream which was excellent. Madeleine had gazpacho and gnocchi veggie options not great but ok. Dessert was superb a chocolate come salted caramel pudding. Quite expensive in all cost for 2 with a bottle of Malbec was £100.
I saw this being used on Masterchef, and thought it looked wonderful. I wasn't disappointed. The restaurant is much larger than I anticipated, and is custom-built, which means that Elena has been able to create something quite unique. It is very beautiful. Everything about it goes beyond expectations, and I am returning this weekend, with my daughter. Well done - an excellent addition to great dining in central London. Alexis
Great - our third visit. This is the place we take our foreign visitors to impress them. Previously it was our food loving French friends, yesterday our fish loving Swedish friend - both have commented favourably. However one unexpected "feature" of yesterdays Brunch was a DJ bashing out pop music. Thankfully they were kind enough to turn it down when requested.
The food as always was excellent. There were three different egg based starters (Benedict, Florentine & Victoria) so we tried them all, and all were applauded. Both the ladies went for the grilled sea bream which they loved, whilst I had the steak tartare which when it is done well, as here, is amazing.
Now looking for an excuse to go again.
The food was beautifully cooked, using excellent quality ingredients and presented stylishly, matching the surroundings. We took advantage of an Evening Standard offer, which included a glass of bubbly. It was definitely good value, though had it not been for the delicious and plentiful bread, we may not have felt fully filled. The staff were extremely friendly, efficient and professional. I would certainly highly recommend eating here.
We saw this restaurant on celebrity mastership and thought that the food looked good and the chef patron came across as very friendly and fun. We had the Evening Standard Set Lunch which was excellent and very good value for money. Helena the boss is very "hands on" in the restaurant and that is probably why it is so good. She also came and spoke to us and was delightful and welcoming.
I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. An absolute gem in London
After going to taste of London this year, I had to visit this place and I can happily say I want to go here again
The food was amazing, I had the foie gras with smoked eel and apple, all 3 went so well together I could of had seconds, for my main I had the Arctic char, the flavours was like as if you was by the sea. For our sides we picked the truffle potatoes and salad with truffle dressing, I could eat the potatoes all on their own
For pudding, I had the chocolate planet with salted caramel, if you're a chocolate lover like me this was amazing
Apart from amazing food the staff were ever so friendly and helpful about the menu they were just so nice
I can't wait to come back :)
