Long queue but worth the wait. Varieties of lok lok to choose and their speciality is the peanut gravy. A must visit shop of you are patient to wait in the queue

We waited about 20mins for seats for five of us. Service wasn't super but not unfriendly either. They provided some seafood sticks - king prawn, squid and abalone after quite a while, also RM1 and was happy to take take back those those clean ones we couldn't finish due to the 'surprise' extra. About RM100 for 3 adults and 2... More

Long queues at Capitol. We waited for 40mins before our turn to be seated. You pick n choose the food you want and will be charged based on number of skewers you ate. Overall delicious but the satay sauce was a tad too spicy for me. Variety is definitely available.

Heard about this store long ago. Due to long q always, I always choose to try other stores. Finally visited the store during this trip. First, we were being "welcomed" by a extremely rude foreign worker, whom raised her voice and show her "not so friendly face" towards my friend. After which. We were being told ala carte food are...

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
