Was here tonight but service was not good and food was terrible. Ordered Kambing satay but it was so chewy can hardly eat it. Ordered teh Tarik and milo ais but got tarik ais and hot milo. No apologies. . Guess they do not know...how to apology and when making so much money why do service or food need to be good anymore!! Very disappointedMore

Someone recommended this place and we came here for dinner and ordered 3 types of satay - beef, chicken and duck together with fried lekur, nasi himpit and pandan nasi lemak. Satay meat was tasty and tender, grilled to perfection! The peanut sauce was thick...and good but not spicy enough to our taste buds. Place was crowded on that particular weekend but service was fast. A good eatery for satay lovers.More

tourists/visitors that googled local cuisines in kuantan will definitely see this place listed in the top 20 on most lists. Hence i have decided to pay this place a visit on an evening after work, just to try out their satay. It is a local...delicacy, with few shops offering this same cuisine. Satay Zul has quite a few branches around town, with this being their biggest. You can see racks of satay being grilled outside the shop. They have quite a list of satay to choose from i must say. Price is not the cheapest to me. Service by the team at the counter were not tiptop, they were not friendly, abit rude i would add. Definitely a big room for improvement on this aspect. It took about 30-40 minutes for a take-away to be ready on average. So if you would not want to wait, i would suggest making use of Food panda / Grab to deliver. As for the food itself, the satay is above average, but definitely not worth the hype. It can't compare to the Kajang satay definitely. Well i guess, its worth to give it a try if you haven't. but if you ask me would i go again? maybe not for now, would like to explore other satay eateries in town before making a trip down to Zul's ..More

Nothing fancy, its just another satay. The meat is tough. The gravy is just so and so. I dont see what is special. But i believe they are quite famous here due to their franchise's. They have few branches around.

After my first visit long time ago, where I was unimpressed with their satay, I couldn't help but return again to reevaluate. I went there at 5pm and it has only 2 tables. However, the restaurant was already BBQing a lot of satays at the...back. The service was a little lazy: lots of staff, but it took a while before coming over to take my order. After ordering, the satay and ketupat (rice cake) came quickly, while the iced lime tea needed reminder. Verdict: - satay tastes great - chicken meat tough, probably overcooked - ketupat soft and tender - cucumber appears dry, probably cut too early and left in the open too long - satay sauce was absolutely delicious Well, they have improved from memory. However service could improve further. With the number of staff they have, tables, chairs and floor could improve with cleanliness. -More

I been here a many times and the satay taste is getting bad to worst. Frozen satay grilled is not my favourite. Its so hard since its frozen and grilled over and over. The prices are also too high and attract tourists but not the...locals.More
