We queued for almost 30 min outside the store on the street before being seated at a table with a hot pot in the middle and propane tank under. The satay ingredients such as peanut sauce etc are being cooked in the hot pot. U are supposed to dip the raw ingredients into the hot pot and take them out... More

I introduced this restaurant to my boss from China, surprisingly I was told this restaurant he heard from some Asian food guides. And many ppl gave good feedback after they had tried. Feeling proud of my favorite satay restaurant and my boss just get hooked by it LOL

This is a famous restaurant for satay hot pot. There is always a queue (unless you're really lucky!) as the food is really really inexpensive. Went with some friends around 7 pm and waited an hour. Not sure I would wait that long again but as we were visiting and had already waited 30 mins, we decided to keep on... More

We went during a public holiday and queued for one hour plus to get our seat. As it was a long day walking around the town, we were too tired to enjoy the food. But the food are not bad, we love the shrimp and kangkung. The owner is kind enough to give us a laici dessert during the midst... More

An experience I would recommend to any visitors to Malacca. Find a table, go and get your raw satay sticks (may be a plate of dumplings too) and dump them in a pot of boiling satay in the middle of the table, eat! It was RM1.1 per stick and I would definitely recommend the chicken and the prawn sticks. The... More

My first experience if satay celup and I totally love it. I guess you must first be a satay sauce fan and not a cleanliness freak, you will definitely enjoy this place. The satay sauce with the spices is super good. A good variety of dishes for selection. This is definitely a place to go if you like satay celup!

We came here at 4+pm and managed to avoid the long dinner queue. They provided a sauce pot with plenty of chilli/dried coconut(?)/ peanuts, and you get to choose your own "food items on a stick" from a refrigerated section near the back. Most items are at 1.10 ringgit per stick. Definitely worth a try for an interesting experience!

Long queues can be expected during peak periods. Tasty sauce for dipping/cooking. However, open display shelves where food is openly stored has many flies flying around and landing on the food. Food skewers and bread quality below average. Pricing is cheap to average. Probably shouldn't expect too much for these prices.
