“Long queue”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

I dislike the queue. However the food is standard fairs, the sauce in which to cook taste good. As it bills per stick it can be quite pricy.

“Food poisoning!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

Queued for more than 1 and a half hours just for satay is really silly but having never tried satay celup we thought it was worth the experience. Found the food to be so so, thought the prawns were the best but hygiene wise it's a bad place as they just sweep all the rubbish and dirt on the floor and beside it were tonnes of smelly sewage. Believe their food isnt that fresh as it's laid out openly and the air con of the freezer was not that cold.

Reached back home and have massive food poisoning with sever vomiting and fainting. Had to visit the doctor for the jab and still unwell after 2 days.

“Very delicious!~”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

Although the restaurant is very small, crowded and without air-conditioner, which made it very hot, the food there is quite fresh and the satay soup is both spicy and tasteful. We had to take a long queue before we could finally enjoy the food. But the wait was worthy. I liked the big shrimp most!

“The most popular satay celup in town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Not the best in taste, but certainly the busiest, liveliest, most bustling satay celup joint there is in Melaka. A must if you want to feel the atmosphere and experience that busy, lively and bustling kind of ambiance. On yeah, this place hold the record for the longest customer queue as well :)
