This is a food stall... not a restaurant. But it does serve ok satay. Id say the satay is average, ive had better at night market stalls. Service is good. Its such a simple dish its tricky to rate. You have a choice of chicken, mutton or beef. Most customers are local to the area, id not recommend travelling to... More

Returned recently to this coffee shop for what I believe to be the tastiest satay in town. Here you can buy chicken or beef satay, and it contains meat ( not bulked out with fat and gristle in between the meat on the sticks) and they cook it perfectly - not too burnt! The cook has been here for years... More

Hands down they make the best satay meats this side of town. The price is reasonable. They are consistent and experienced in that they will grill the satay meats to perfection, retaining enough juice while fully cooked and tender, and never burnt or dry and hard. Their satay sauce is good too but since I know where to find better... More

Need not travel far for one of the best satay in town. Juicy and chunky meat grill to perfection. Certainly value for money. The peanut sauce is just nice with right amount of chili. Need no additional sambal. This satay is by far supersede the popular satay chain which do not even come close in quality. Suggest to come early... More

This satay stall has a history. The satay is made in the tradition of Majid Satay back in the 1950s. The gravy is excellent, even when it is eaten with rice. Try asking for the exotic satays such as satay perut and satay limpa. Their satay kambing is not kambing, it is actually lamb. Very yummy and highly recommended to... More

Having been raised in Ampang, Zaini satay has been our family's satay of choice for the last 20 years, at least! Their beef satay is the best! Although I must confess, I prefer the chicken satay from the "rival" Nur Satay stall. See if they have satay perut too when you're there. They make a limited quantity and often "save"... More
