Cheap steak in Singapore
Steak in Singapore can be expensive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find affordable options. To save yourself from chowing down inferior steaks, we’ve sussed out a list of cheap steaks. The eateries on this list offer great value-for-money steaks and are worth a visit for any occasion.
If you’re wondering about your desired level of doneness, here’s a quick summary of the different types available.
Rare: Slightly cool bright red centre
Medium rare: Warm red centre
Medium: Warm pink centre
Medium well: Slight brown to pink centre
Well done: Brown centre, charred outside
Most steak lovers usually opt for medium-rare, as the meat remains tender and succulent while retaining most of its juicy flavours. If the steak gets cooked even further, it’ll lose most of its flavour and gives an unpleasant leathery texture.

1. Meat N’ Chill
Hang out with friends at Meat N’ Chill, an affordable steakhouse located on the stretch of Bukit Timah Road. Order their value-for-money New York Strip, which sets you back only $19++ for a thick cut of short loin and two sides. Complimentary sides include Buttered Corn, Coleslaw, Green Salad and many more. Alternatively, you can pay an additional $3++ for premium sides which includes a variety such as Truffle or Chilli Cheese Fries.
Other options include their Angus Ribeye ($36++), which comes with free truffle shavings upon request. Savour the earthy kick from the truffles along with the juicy beef cut, or pair them with the house-made Échalote shallots sauce for more flavour. Those who don’t fancy steaks can also opt for their Signature Pork Ribs ($22++). With a generous coat of sticky sauce and tender meat, the pork ribs had the right amount of fat and had me using my fingers instead.
This two-storey, 70-seated restaurant boasts a full house on the weekends, so be sure to make a reservation beforehand.
Address: 805 Bukit Timah Road, #01-04, Sixth Avenue Centre, Singapore 279883

2. Braseiro Restaurant
A mainstay in the local steak scene, Braseiro Restaurant continues to draw in the crowd after all these years. This cosy shophouse comprises two storeys of dining area and even comes with an alfresco rooftop garden for an intimate setting.
The menu is kept simple, with a choice of Ribeye Steak, Beef Skewers, and Half Chicken going for $24.90+. Each order also comes with free-flow house-made french fries and fresh chopped lettuce.
Ribeye is the most popular option here, and it’s easy to see why. Each piece is carefully flame-grilled, giving a nice kiss of smokiness that goes beautifully with the juicy meat.

3. The Feather Blade
What makes The Feather Blade different from the other players on this list is its focus on the feather blade cut. This cut of meat isn’t traditionally the most popular around, as it requires a bit of finesse to trim it from the beef chuck.
In 2002, scientists found a new way to trim the feather blade off and realised that its ranked second in tenderness behind the tenderloin. The end product is an affordable piece of meat that is tasty and tender.
We’re huge fans of the Feather Blade Steak ($24++), which won us over with its tenderness that came along with robust and meaty flavours. The steaks here are also sous vide before being cooked, resulting in consistently cooked pieces of meat.
You can also pair the meats with an impressive selection of sides priced from $9++. While the store offers four different house-made sauces such as Sichuan Peppercorn, Bearnaise, Horseradish Cream, and Red Wine at $2.50++ each, we recommend having the steak as is.
Address: 90 Club Street, Singapore 069458
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 5:30pm to 1am

4. Armoury Craft Beer Bar & Steak House
There’s no better way to welcome the weekend than the weekend Steak Buffet ($33) at The Armoury. This all-you-can-eat meat feast features Australian grass-fed rib eye and striploin, along with a variety of sides such as nacho chips, fries, spam fries, and many more.
On top of the cheap steaks, BBQ pork ribs, grilled pork belly, and fried chicken thigh are some of the other meat options that are included in this meat buffet.
Of course, what you pay is what you get and it’s hard to label the steaks here as top-quality nosh. I don’t even remember the staff asking for the desired doneness of our steaks.
But at $33 nett, this buffet provides amazing value and is an undisputed option for those looking to fill up their belly.
Address: 36 Beach Road, Singapore 189766
Buffet hours: Sat-Sun 12pm to 2:30pm, 5pm to 9:30pm
Armoury Craft Beer Bar & Steak House is not a halal-certified eatery.
Opened by the people behind affordable French specialist Saveur, MediumRare follows the same ethos of its parent restaurant and serves up tasty fare at wallet-friendly prices. Despite presenting themselves as a steakhouse, they also carry other mains such as rice bowls, poultry, and Saveur’s ever-popular duck confit.
Ribeye Steak ($25++) comes with a 200g slab of meat that’s accompanied by a generous amount of marbling. We asked for a steak with medium doneness and were satisfied with how it had a nice pink in the centre.
Unlike The Feather Blade, the steaks here also come with two free sides and a complimentary sauce. There are quite a few sides to choose from, which also include Potato Wedges, Onion Rings, and Crunchy Coleslaw. Sauce options are also aplenty, with Cafe De Paris, Mushroom, Black Pepper, Mala, and Black Bean available.

6. iSTEAKS Diner

Starting from a humble coffee shop store, iSTEAKS Diner has expanded over the years and now has three restaurants islandwide. It’s a good idea to head down for their cheap steaks early as the queue tends to stretch for quite a bit.
My go-to dish is their NZ Ribeye 200g ($29.50++). The steaks are always cooked to the right doneness and are beautifully marked with even grill marks.
It also comes with two complimentary sides, with 20 different options to choose from. Popular favourites include Country Baked Beans, Cream Spinach, Cauliflower Cheese, and Mashed Potato.

Opened by the Astons group of restaurants, BIZEN Okayama Wagyu Steakhouse serves up wagyu steaks at affordable prices. The restaurant has an exclusive partnership with Okayama cattle farmers in Japan, giving them access to many unique cuts which are otherwise hard to find in Singapore.
There are a whopping 20 different cuts to choose from, with many exciting variants such as Flank 150g ($22.90+), Tri Tip 150g ($23.90+), and Plate 150g ($22.90) available.
Move away from the usual sirloin and ribeye options, and check out their Flap Steak 150g ($23.90+). It’s popularly known as a butcher’s cut as butchers usually keep it for themselves to enjoy instead.

8. Hamburg Steak Keisuke
While they’re not technically proper steaks, the hamburger steaks at Hamburg Steak Keisuke ought to satisfy any meat cravings. Using only quality US prime beef, the patties here are full of flavour and come with a beautiful sear.
There are only two options on the menu, a regular hamburger or one with cheese inside. We went for their Triple Cheese Prime Hamburg Steak Set ($24.90++), which comes with a sharp creamy cheese filling that pairs nicely with the tender meat.
There’s also unlimited access to the salad bar, and an egg station here. We liked their plain omelette, which is served in a creamy omu-style. The fluffy inside is buttery and proved to be dangerously addictive.
Address: 72 Peck Seah Street, Singapore 079329
Opening hours: Daily 11:30am to 3pm, 5:30pm to 10pm

Headed by a 23-year-old chef, BlackGoat started out as a home-based business. Now, they have a brick-and-mortar stall at Jalan Batu Hawker Centre. The Muslim-friendly eatery doesn’t have a fixed menu, so you’ll have to keep tabs on their Instagram page to find out what they’re serving for the week.
On our visit, we had the New Zealand Grassfed Striploin with Black Garlic ($15.50). This was served medium-rare, boasting a glistening red-pink on the inside with an even brown crust outside. The flavours here are simple, with the steak being lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, and served with savoury black garlic sauce on the side.
If you’d like to try their other menu items, we highly recommend the Free Range Lamb Leg with Sarawak Pepper Jus, Sumar and Sambal Belacan ($17) and the Grassfed Flank and Chuck Burger ($15) too.

BlackGoat is not a halal-certified eatery but uses no pork or lard.
Another Muslim-friendly option on this list is Picanhas’, a halal restaurant serving value-for-money steaks and hearty plates on Club Street. As the name suggests, they specialise in the picanha, a unique rump cap that’s popular in Brazil.
There are only two proper steak mains on the menu––the Picanha Don ($21) and Queen of Steak ($29). The steaks are dry-brined, slow-cooked, and finished on the stove with butter, resulting in a rich and succulent texture. You can also pair your meat with an extra serving of house-made sauces such as Chimichurri, Wasabi Cream, and Sze Chuan.
We personally prefer the Picanha Don over the Queen of Steak, as the picanha is sliced more thinly, making it extra tender. It also comes with sweet onions, cabbage, and aromatic garlic bits for a more well-rounded meal.

Address: 90 Club Street, Singapore 069458
Opening hours: Tue-Fri 12pm to 3pm, 5:30pm to 10pm, Sat-Sun 11am to 3:30pm, 5:30pm to 10pm

Uno Beef House serves one of the cheapest ribeyes on this list, priced at only $17 per serving. The humble stall at Toa Payoh’s Maxim Stars Coffee Shop is known for its snaking queues and popular Black Pepper Sirloin Steak ($17). This dish features a thick slab of meat served on a hot plate, sizzling in black pepper sauce. It also comes with baked beans, half a tomato, and a house-made potato croquette.
According to online reviews, the steak here is cooked to a beautiful medium-rare and is said to be uber juicy. The meat is also on the fatty side, with a lightly charred exterior for extra smokiness.

12. Smokin’ Joe

Smokin’ Joe may be located in a hawker centre, but they’ve got culinary equipment that rivals that of an upscale steakhouse––specifically, a $10,000 Spanish Josper oven used for most of the mains on their menu. Meat lovers can expect high-quality cuts of Smokin Joe’s signature steak, including the fire-grilled AU Ribeye 200g ($19) and AU Tenderloin 180g ($26). Add-ons are also available, such as Mushroom Soup With Garlic Bread ($3), Mashed Potato ($3), and even Foie Gras 80g ($12)––in case you’re feeling fancy.
Fun fact: the eatery was also part of Urban Hawker 2022, a food hall in New York spearheaded by Makansutra.

13. Rasa Sayang Western Food
If Yishun is too out of the way for you, head over to Rasa Sayang Western Food instead, which is located at Ang Mo Kio Street 31. The hawker stall is famous for their affordable Western food, such as the Sirloin Steak ($12.90). This yummy dish sees a juicy medium-rare steak drizzled with a tangy tomato-based sauce, served with a trio of crinkle-cut fries, garlic bread, baked beans, and coleslaw. The portion here is also generous for the dish’s price point, so you’re definitely getting your money’s worth!

Other steaks on the menu include the “Gorina Argentinian” Ribeye ($28.90++), featuring a seared 200g ribeye with baby carrots and oyster mushrooms, as well as the “Vintage” Australian Rump Cap ($27.90++)––200g rump cap with pumpkin puree, potatoes, asparagus, and crispy quinoa.

This small steak eatery at Sunshine Plaza changes their menu every month, so you’ll always have something new to savour. The eatery hand-picks its steaks based on whatever is in season, to ensure only the finest cuts are served to customers.

It’s also said to be incredibly moist, and is served with a creamy carrot puree and truffle mustard. Another noteworthy dish is the 150g Hunter’s Ribeye Steak ($28++), consisting of house salad, beetroot puree, and a sprinkle of val d’elsa sea salt.
