It was recommended by a friend to me. I really like their satay celup as you can't find it everywhere. In general it was a good experience and worth eating there. We had 24 pieces and 2 drinks for 22 RM.

This is the second time I tried satay celup.. and I was reminded why I didn't like it the first time 10 years ago (at Capitol then).. The ingredients are mainly processed meat/fish pieces skewered.. the taste of blended peanuts and pineapple is overpowering, the place is hot and sticky.. Just not to my taste..

When it comes to satay celup everyone says head to Capitol but I can't bear waiting in line for hours. No food is that great. So usually I find alternatives. This is one of them. Decent sauce and choices. Price is generally the same all around. There are 2 shops with the same name side by side. Not sure what... More

It's not bad but it's not super good either. The boiling sauce was alright, but the seafood was not all fresh. The processed meats like fishballs and all are ok but fresh seafood could be better. At least we didn't have to queue miles long like at Capitol.

Recommended by Hotel Hong. Put away your inhibitions and try something different. Satay fondue without really knowing what you are cooking. Staff had limited English and tried to help with what was in the fridge, but after a few sticks you don't really care as long as it tastes good. Worth the experience.

A local friend brought me here as recommended better than the Capital satay celup near the tourist area. We arrived at around 7pm on Monday evening, even though there is no queue but the restaurant is still fully occupied. Easy rule to follow, every stick count at 80 cents and there are quite a big variety of choices. The satay... More

The best satay celup in town. My piece of advice, should celup with their "yao tiao" which goes best with their gravy. Best combination ever.

Worth a try but not worth the queue. If u are early, u might not need to wait but if you are late, u gonna cry for the wait. Nice boss and lady boss. However, it's just normal satay celup, nothing to brag about.

This coffee shop style makan place serving Satay Celup was packed with young adults when we visited it about 5:00pm. It's kinda of dangerous dining there if you think about all those rubber hoses piping out from LPG cylinders lying on the floor in between the tables...you could accidentally tripped on it and burst one of the LPG hose.
