“Satay Sauce you have to try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

The satay here is done in the traditional way. Only it's a little healthier because there is less fat in the pork satay. The sauce is the main attraction; it has plenty of mashed pineapple in it - gives it the right balance of sweet & sour, enhancing the peanut sauce. A must try!

“Special Satay Sauce!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

The satay sauce has bits of pineapple in it, so quite special. Only 2 type of meat: chicken & pork, also serve pigs innards in skewers. If you are in Melaka for holiday, I think no harm to try something special, right?

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

Been there for a few times but mostly during the non peak season. Price wise is not that cheap but the taste is qutie good and addictive especially the intestine. Pork satay was the best but chicken isnt. Well at RM0.60/piece for a pork, well...not the cheapest but not that bad especially the escalating price of pork.

“Not worth the time nor money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2011

The uniqueness of this nyonya satay, I was told, is its peanut sauce which is mixed with some pineapple. It creates a sour n spicy taste. I don’t like my satay kuah to taste this sourish. The chicken, pork and innards statay here are sadly less than stellar and is nothing special.

They had two shoplots and when it’s full like it was today, the service was non-existent to the extent that you wait forever for a miserable few sticks of satay, because the kitchen simply couldn’t cope. After bringing a bunch of satay which worked out to one or at most two sticks per person, we were fortunate the next bunch arrived while we were still young. I gave up after waiting an hour and eating four sticks of satay.

At 60sen a stick of satay (70 sen including Chinese New year surcharge), and the satay – the size fit for a Liliputian – this is blatant daylight robbery.

Not enjoyable. Seriously, you WILL be disappointed here.
