Satay lok-lok

Either you come early or be prepared to queue for a long time. Satay sauce is on the bitter side and God knows how many times it was recycled. Good to know what you want to eat, but variety is quite limited though.

Well, queue for 2 1/2 hours, get our seats finally. First of all, overpriced. And we used the same satay hotpot with the last table user. And for sure, next table will use the same satay hotpot that we used... I would said this is a great try, but I would not go for second time, not very delicious, just... More

Been queuing for about 1hr plus because it is in a long weekend holiday. We traveled by four, then we shared one table with other guests. Various type of satay you can pick yourself. The sauce is veerry nice, and they will keep stir the pot and add more sauce to keep it tasty. Sometimes if you're lucky they will... More

The satay sauce is so nice and thick. They are NOT stringy with their herbs and grounded peanut which makes it so nice. They also give a bowl of clear water to "wash" off the spice so that my children can eat too. Not too spicy. I would recommend people who wishes to try to reach around 4 to 430... More

We went on a weekend night and didn't have to queue. The food was decent, sauce is nice but nothing too special - from the perspective of an average Singaporean. What we didn't like was the overall warm dining area, not the shop owners fault, they have already installed many fans. This is part of the experience eating street food.

Now the satay stick is rm1.10 per stick, if you guys want to gell full, must spend around 30 to 40 like that. The sauce is very tasty.

There was some hype regarding this eatery that we felt we needed to try. Reading from other online reviews, I reached at 4pm on a Friday afternoon, expecting a long queue, but to my pleasant surprise, we were seated immediately. Each stick of food costs RM$1.10 whereas plates cost a different amount. It basically worked in a steamboat fashion, but... More

Arrived here to find a long line out the door...always a good sign!!! I walked around the neighborhood while waiting for the line to dwindle. The selection of items here is impressive in the display cases is impressive..If they don't have what you want, then you don't need it. The bubbling vat of delicious peanut curry goodness is amazing and... More

We went there for dinner and only had to wait a few minutes. There was a pot of sauce in the middle of the table and concept is you pretty much pick sticks of raw/uncooked meats, veg etc and soak or dip it into the gravy and eat. The experience was interesting and for those that have never done this... More

The concept is very special: a hot pot with a lot of shredded vegetables, and satay on bamboo sticks that you select. You pay at the end based on the number of skewers. Price is very reasonable. Better to come there whe they open ( at 4:00PM) because locals fill the place in no time.
