Just cannot STOP eating until it's TOO FULL. after eating, walk to JONKER. Choose to go there on WEEKENDS. You won't regret if you love GOOD FOOD but REMEMBER to leave some room for titbits and snacks at JONKER.

If you're a westerner who's never tried satay celup before, this place is perfect. The gravy is so flavorful, and the selection of meats, veggies, dumplings, and fishy things to choose from is vast. We left completely stuffed for 50RM. There was no wait at 530pm on a Tuesday; maybe we were just lucky.

What a practical setup. This was my first experience with the satay sauce cooking in the middle of the table, and seeing the ingredients added, understand satay better now. There were more than a dozen items on sticks, just choose your own, and cook or heat them in the hot sauce in front of you. Each stick is the same... More

We wanted to go for one Satay Celup dinner and choosed Capitol Satay. We went on a Wednesday evening at around 7:30pm and didn't even wait 5 minutes. The Satay was very good, good variety of skewers.

Maybe we were lucky, but there was no queue when we came, and we had a table right away. You serve yourself with the raw ingredients. The standard satay sticks (and there was plenty of choice of these) were 1.10, which I found very reasonable. Watch out for the color of the little plates you take as side orders! There... More

We went to this place based on a recommendation. The food is fresh mainly fish but also some chicken. Unfortunatly only one veggie thing - had hoped for more. Its a very busy and know, place. We waited 1 hour before we got a table. But staff is very friendly and helpful despite all the craziness around them.

Went with friends during Labour's Day holiday. We joined the queue at nearly 6pm and waited for 3 hours standing in the queue. The gravy was just so-so, though generous amount of chili, peanut are added, too spicy for me. 3 hours of waiting time for this, totally not worthy, waste of time.

Perhaps it is the best satay celup in melaka. The price also more expansive then ask the other satay celup shop. People start queuing from 4 pm onward in public holiday just to taste it. For me, I feel all the satay celup source are the same. Nothing too much different. This shop is famous because the way they indirectly... More

The first time I tried Capitol Satay Celup was in 2009. Located so close to "The Sterling" where we stayed and also well-known, we thought this time round, we thought we should try it. I still like it but my partner found it so-so, may be not used to the satay gravy? I like the prawns, fish balls, quail eggs,... More
