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.

This is a must-try satay while in Malacca. Very delicious. However, the challenge is to queue-up to get a table due the the small shop and limited tables. I waited for an hour just to get a table. Good luck!

i have had satay celup at OKW before i attempt this. while my wife claims this is better, i would like to differ, personally i think the OKW has much more varieties of food but they do not have the premium things this one offer. taste is almost the same, woman usually think they change the gravy,but frankly i think...

We tried the satay celup at Capitol late on Sunday night and the restaurant was packed. Thankfully our wait wasn't very long. One stick of seafood costs RM1.00, cucumbers are free and then drinks are chargeable depending on your choice of drink. The satay sauce is pleasant, not too spicy, but it has a bitter aftertaste (due to the burnt... More

the queue is never ending even if you go early, sometimes need queue like 30mins to an hour. find it quite overrated as the food is average and quite expensive.

Instead of 5 pm, the place starts operating at 4 pm now. Hence, patrons will need to be there earlier. The food is affordable (at MYR 1 per stick) and tasty, but the outlet's too small to handle the queuing crowd. We spent less than MYR 50 for 2 persons, but were filled to the brim. After hitting a certain... More

I grew up in Melaka and this place was our favorite since then. But now, when ever I passed through this place I see people from out station lining up in long lines to eat there. Seriously, food is nothing special and it's just the same as the other satay celup outlets all over Jln Ong Kim Wee. Why waste... More

Steamboat with satay sauce on whole - the longer you eat, the better your base. Come early (just slightly before opening at 4pm) or wait for at least 30mins for your turn to the skewered food dipped in thick satay sauce. And as the shop states - one and only, no sister or brother shop.
