Interesting experience

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... read 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.

To celebrate friend's birthday, we spend around RM30 each person there. Food so-so, but a lot of people queue for it. Well, the similar shop opposite Capitol only have housefly... 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
