First of all, this place is over-hyped. The sanitary condition is really bad. There is a difference between looking "old-school" and downright dirty. The choice of food on skewers is rather limited and unappetising. The servers' faces are all black. WORST OF ALL, I realised that they recycle the gravy which is used for cooking. Granted that this kind of... More

Unresisting the new level spicy on tongue... I find something different this time. In the past, Capitol always been none spicy but more toward sweetness. Seriously it surprised me of it spiciness. And strongly get hooked even more deeper. LOL...

Stepping into this restaurant, I felt transported back in time. Greeted by very friendly staff. Shown to our seats and we could take as many sticks as we wanted to begin with. The pot was filled with fresh hot sauce and their special mix which proved to be wonderfully tasty. My friend and I ate till we felt we were... More

I went there on a family weekend trip. We saw a long queue outside the shop when we drove past by the shop and thought we should try it out! It was a pretty long queue and the shop is just a small, old shop run by a Chinese family. We queue up for about an hour before we could... More

We visited the shop at around 3:45 thinking that is was still closed. The restaurant opens at 4pm. Luckily, it is already open when we got there. We did not waited for our tables or we didn't waited in line. There are varieties of food like vegetables, beancurd, meat, dumplings, and seafood. First we chose the food that we are... More

Uniquely Malaccan, satay celup is something that visitors should try at least once. It is my second time eating it. First experience was at a different restaurant - horrible. Capitol Satay is better. Visit early to avoid queue - there is no place set aside for waiting customers so the queue ends up on the side of the narrow one-way... More

I practically grew up eating the infamous Satay Celup for the past 28 years. I have watched this business expand from one stall to a restaurant and now a few shop lots providing the same type of delicacies. In my opinion, Satay Celup does taste good and it is different from the concept of Lok Lok which is famous in... More

The satays here is famous than other satay celup shops since there are cheap cheese hot dogs , big prawns and seafood satays. This could not be found in other place. This could be a good place for satay celup if we could able avoid one or half hour queue.
