My usual for Satay Celup

The actual name is Ban Lee Siang, and there are two shops (they were once a single business but had a messy family feud so here we are with two). One is run by a couple and the other by the rest of the family. Been eating here for the last decade or so. I am from Melaka and have... read more

The restaurant is very crowded during weekend and public holiday. One of the famous restaurant in Melaka. The foods is just simple. The environment is a bit warm. Can give a try if you never have Stay Celup before. Only serve dinner no lunch.

The restaurant is crowded even before 6pm for dinner. There are two shops next to each other, according to one of the owner, they used to be in partnership but now separated. The satay sauce and tastiness of the food at this place is over rated, tasted a lots better satay celup in the residential neighborhood near bachang and taman... More

It is crowd packed during holiday and weekend. Other days you can get a seat easily. The food is average, in fact I feel all the satay celup tasted more or less the same. Previously only has one Ban Lee Hiang. Then the brothers quarrel and separate out. They divided the shoplots into 2 with a gate in between. Both... More

Read reviews on this shop and thot to have a try while visiting Melaka... The queue is not as Long as the other big C*** and they have more variety of menu items ... However feel that the sauce is not as flavourful ... Can be a good alternative in case you find the queue on the other side unbearable... More

We drove over from Aeon Melaka as the google map doesn't reflect a correct direction. Thus we spotted the branch first (only after our meal, we found the main branch further down the road). It was a rainy evening, thus when we reach the shop, it was not crowded. Eh we were a bit taken off by the idea of... More

The queue maybe intimidating but largely due to tour buses groups. They come in droves, go in droves so if you are unluckily caught when they are visiting, wait a while. In 2015 Sept, they charge 90sen per stick so being a thrifty traveler with kids, I tried to be prudent. It was never my intention to eat until we... More

We were taken here by Malaysian friends and queued with friendly locals in the street to get an table in this busy restaurant, but well worth it. A novel experience sat around a boiling pot of satay on a table have way into the street being constantly refilled by the staff. You simple go up to the fridges select from... More
