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!

I don't understand why so many people bother to queue up for this satay celup, the broth remain unchange and add on the chili, peanuts and sauces and stir it over and over again, I saw my next table customer even has a bite of uncooked fish ball and placed back into the pot and cooked it again. Really not... More

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.

Once again a revisit to this small shop and never resist the aromatic gravy as always. Would recommend u to try pour an amount of sauce on ur plate and before chewing it, apply the sauce onto the skewers to fully taste the outstanding gravy.

This place is amazing, especially for the money. For those of you unfamiliar with the convept, they have skewers of tofu, meats and fish which you dip into a vat of boiling satay sauce to cook the food. The satay sauce is delicious, and the selection of skewers is great. I loved every skewer, and I had about 20. Price... More

Satay here is good taste. It also is value for money food because they have variety of choices such as squid,vegetable, tofu, fried tofu, gizzard,etc. but you have to queue therefore you should have spare the time for queuing. Some Staffs can speak a bit English.

Went there at about 10pm and queued for about 30min to get a table. Price is around Rm1.10 per stick. The satay sauce is delicious. Best to dip bread into it. By far the most delicious satay celup i have tried.
