I don't really enjoy as the satay hotpot is reuse, which mean that you will share the same bowl of satay hotpot with all the tables before you. OMG!

Been there on 23rd Jan'15. Not a long queue. Only two persons before me. Seafood in sticks were very mediocre. Main problem, we found that the smell and taste are not that suitable for Indian pallet. However, it may be tasty for others. Who knows !!!!

I really enjoyed eating here, thought the price was great and the atmosphere was fine, when I arrived there was a queue of one person so we got a table almost instantly (this was about 3pm) and as I had never experienced anything like it I thought it was very self explanatory. People have commented about the queue and yes... More

My first visit, couldn't believe the line waiting outside. 20 mins. queue, another 15 minutes wait for the pot of broth to be set up before we could start cooking. Must admit being dazzled by the range and variety of food on skewers in chilled open-case. Each skewer of the bite-size goodies was MYRinggit 1, but it could add up... More

Frankly, it is not worth queuing for, apart from the novelty of dipping and cooking food in the peanut sauce (or what is known as the satay sauce in Malaysia). The selection of items offered on stick are mediocre, especially the small sized prawns. The sauce was good, though...it was thick and they keep on replenishing it. However, I don't... More

As a local boy, if we like to eat satay celup. we will go to the shop Ban Li Xiang at Jalan Ong Kim Wee. At Capitol Satay celup you hardly find local Malacca.

Wow! There was an absolutely ridiculous line in front of this restaurant ( 3 januari around 5pm). So I decided to go eat here later that evening. So I went back around 10:30pm. The line was still huge but half of the length it was in the afternoon. At this moment I expected something delicious and spectacular, however the food... More

Satay celup is one of the famous food in Melaka. Celup means you put the satay to the peanut sauce. It tooks 90 minutes to queue and 45 minutes to eat. So, if you go with your friends please make your stomach not so empty.

The shop is very famous throughout Malaysia due to its delicious Satay Celup. We queued for around one and a half hours for getting a seat. However, it is worth for the wait.
