Rm 1 per stick... Quite expensive~~ Come early or you are expect to wait in a long line... The food is just normal

Not worth waiting for hours.... I would rather give it a try to other satay makers in town and taste exactly the same. Don't find anything special about Capitol.........

Have been notify that Capitol satay celup is a must eat food in Melacca once you visit. Finally can squeeze my time to pay a visit in Melacca and try the long heard famous satay celup. Is not a wise choice to go during public holiday. I had been waiting 3hours, therefore my dinner had change to supper. There are... More

We had been told about this specific restaurant by a friend. We lined up for roughly 15-20 minutes, in the street with the traffic whizzing by. It doesn't look like much at all. There is no glass, everything is open. No air-con, only industrial fans. It even looks a little dirty...but its really not! An array of food on sticks... More

Brought my parents for supper at 10pm. Queue was still long and waited for around 30min while chatting with the other queueing patrons. A cacausian guy was so bemused that so many queue up for this particular shop while the shop directly opposite has so little customers. Guess everyone wanted to try the 'original'. After getting a table, my dad... More

The queue is constantly there no matter what the time is. And the length of the queue is around the width of 2 shophouses. If you are the last one, it might take you 1.5 hours. I queued for 1 hour and I gave up. Alternatively, there's another satay celup just opposite named A Famosa Satay Celup. I went over... More

We waited outside for 50 minutes after opening time, before the doors opened. No apology from the staff for late opening. Then we were shouted at and rudely pointed to a table. The meat on skewers was half defrosted - not good food hygiene to be cooking meat from half frozen. The sauce was nice, but got a bit samey... More

The queue was long. The heat of the hob was very close to our legs. We just do not use to it. Besides that it does not suit our taste. We ate satay celup at another shop sometimes back, the soup and the peanut mixture was proportioned very well. I would say it taste better than Capitol satay.... However, the... More

We arrived late. About 7-ish and it was a Saturday. Not a great timing to be there because of the queue. Officially waited from daylight to night. Waited for 2 long hours for it. BUT..... It was really worth a meal. The satay celup was nice and of course the sauce was "tweaked" by the waiter there was just nice... More

This was an amazing dinner. The satay choices are delicious and you get to cook your own in a pot in the centre of the table. We queued to eat here but it was definitley worth it. It is a very local place to eat without many tourists which made our experience even better
