Good, not great

Heard a lot about Melaka's famous satay celup, so just had to try it. Plenty of variety of fresh ingredients such as meat balls, prawns, fish balls, kangkung, tau kee etc to choose from. The satay taste is quite mild and the only thing that enhanced the taste was the prawns. The home made drinks... read more

We like coming here cos the 2 shops have good food & sauces & reasonably clean. It helps that the numerous customers ensure good turnover that promotes fresher food selection.

Was on a family road trip to Malacca and first stop for dinner was Satay Celup at Ban Lee Hiang. As we were early, seats were plenty and parking was`t too difficult to find. As i was traveling with my wheelchair bound brother, the stuff quickly gave us a table nearer to the walk way and helped me carry the... More

This shop provides the best satay celup in Malacca. The gravy is thick, nutty and spicy. The staff constantly add pounded nuts and sauce to the gravy.

Came here about 2 days before Chinese New Year. There are two shops of the same name just side-by-side (We went into the one on the right). Heard that both shops, despite the same name, were run by two different people and use different sauces. Food items are charged at RM0.80 per stick. The spicy satay sauce is superb. Food... More

Went there with a group of friend at around 6pm. But only spend about 10minutes waiting for a table that can suit 9 of us. Lots of variety and vege are fresh too. The gravy is awesome, just that they only refill instead of replacing a new one for every customer. Something to share is that, try not to dig... More

We tried the one with red coloured gate. The taste is good but due... More

This place served good pork satay with peanut sauce mixed with pineapple paste. Not only pork, they also serve pork intestine and liver satay, all nicely skewered to perfection. Nicely tucked in a quiet corner near the touristy zone. Can get a lil crowded though. My 2-year-old daughter had her very first stick of satay here and immediately fell in... More

I had been there on Sunday, arrived on 5pm, no need queue at all ! good for tat. didn't choose to go for Capitol bcoz of the long queue... The sauce was ok, looks hygience enough for me. They open from 3.30pm on weekends, so go early if u 1 to avoid queue, was crowded after 6pm.
