It was an experience to eat seafood, meat and vegetables on sticks and heating or cooking them in a pot of satay sauce much like the Swiss fondue but much bigger and without the cheese. I have had it in their original location below Capitol Cinema by the bridge and somehow the ambiance just didn't... read more

One of the best Satay Celup in Melaka. This is one of the "must try" Melaka's restaurant. The satay sauce is special and better. The business is so good that you hav If you go on weekend better go early before 4pm ( for the queue ) or late night after 11pm so that the queue will not be too... More

Avoid the long que during peak hours. Better come earlier than lunch or dinner time. The peanut sauce steamboat is nice. Actually nothing too special with the taste but worth a visit if you are in malacca.

Went to this store on a Tuesday afternoon. Queue was alright, w needed to wait just 10 mins. My friend told me that queue time runs into the hours on weekends, be warn. Food skewered on sticks cooked in a bubbly satay sauce / heavy soup (?) very robust and nice. Would recommend this stall, they are the most original!!

We queued for 2 hours for the famous satay loklok in Malacca. The food serving (satay sticks) are small and peanut gravy are not so tasty (there is another review on recycling gravy which I'm not sure but they recycling satay sticks, hope they did well manage the sticks).

We arrived very late into malacca so this was the only place still open (~1am). It was still fairly busy at this time so I can only imagine what it would be like at peak times! The idea of cooking your own food in the satay is quite novel and the whole group thought it tasted pretty good. The restaurant... More

Before you start queuing just remember that The peanut sauce is getting reuse over and over again, something worth reminding. Overall food choices are limited.

When we arrived at our home-stay we got this message: You need to experience the Capitol...and it was worth it. Fresh sea food, chicken and meat on a stick and to fry them yourself is great fun. Be aware there might be a line in front...
