Have been visiting this satay for many years. Original store at studio 5 then open subsidiary store nearby called zaini 2. Chicken satay a bit of fatty meat. I prefer beef satay. If you like more lean chiken satay can try store near damansa perdana.

Being a satay fanatic, I frequently crave for satay. By far, this is the best in town if it's not Malaysia. Personally, I prefer this much over the renowned Satay Kajang. It's juicy, tender and tantalizing! Do check out the place earlier especially if you...are into 'spare parts' aka internal organs as it's of limited stock and in high demand. The beef and lamb satay are highly recommended!More

Used to be the go-to place for street food satay. No longer. It is now average if not below average. Sad to see the decline of an iconic street stay establishment.

Used to be the best stay place in Malaysia, as far as I am concerned have been there many many times over the last 20 years or so, unfortunately the last couple of times the satay was not as good, the peanut sauce limited and...not as good as it used to be.More

Then i realized she actually didnt do our ordered after i asked other staff to check..!!how devastated it was..for 1 1/2 hrs waiting.. They were actually 'choose' their customer who would be their priority!! Wooww...as i walked out speechless.. Never go back since then..More

The satay is a bit pricey but the taste is better than Satay Haji Samuri Kajang (in my opinion). It is located at a local food stall. It is not a fancy place to dine. Usually attract local people and regular customer.

Originally it was the famous Satay Majid . Now his son Zaini run the satay shop. Their special ingredients in their satays make it delicious. It is a family business . Try their beef,chicken satay which are marinated well. You can just eat it without...the gravy still taste yummy! The peanut sauce gravy too are thick, sweet & spicy a bit. The shop only open in the evening . Go early as it can be a long queue . Price wise is reasonable .More

This stall is sited within a larger and motley collection of stalls at the end of AKLEH there is limited parking and the rush gets worse at mealtimes and weekends The satay is tasty yet not as good as reported Quality is dependent on traffic...rush and there are other options Don't just come for the satay, if you Have it with the wide range of halal favourites it may be worth your tripMore
