We visited late on a Sunday afternoon. Not too busy. 4th generation owner Loi, greated us and assisted us to choose. We had sate chicken & pork, rice cubes, cucumber and onion, peanut sauce with pineapple, as well as cold Dandelion tea. We thought the...food was tender, really tasty and, whilst acknowledging the sates are smaller than many places, good value. We had a great chat with Loi who gave us tips on other places to eat and a quicker way to get to our hotel by following the river.More

Pork-based Chinese satey, including innards, served. OK taste, good, pineapple-laced dipping sauce, OK presentation, OK service. But portion per stick seems to have undergone substantial shrinkflation. Now RM1.30 per stick. Needed 20 sticks for satisfaction; am normally satisfied with 10 sticks of regular Malay (chicken....beef, mutton) satey.More

Satay lover will love this venue. The sauce is unique as a little bit sourish taste. I really enjoy their satay.

Tender grilled pork skewer with pineapple spicy sauce (taste mild sour & spicy, different from the traditional peanut sauce). Delicious!

Oklah the satay here. Cost RM 0.90 per stick. Small stick. Not worth the price. Taste wise ok nothing to shout about. Peanut sauce just normal also

The pork strips in skewers are charcoal grilled and is served with a rich delightful pineapple flavored dipping spicy sauce. It is truly mouth watering with options of pork innards for the more advantageous. Try their in house refreshing sour sop drink to compliment.

Used to be my favourite but no longer. The meat had shrunk and the taste changed. Even the sauce tasted differently now. Maybe the chef was changed.

The satay sticks were small, but seasoned and bbq well. Sauce was pineapple based, no peanuts, good taste. Menu is limited to just 5 items. Opening hours and days are limited, so check carefully by calling them.

Old Gold Yes though much longer but still as good. The meat may not be competitive with new kids on the block but it’s sauce still better. Love the pineapples in the satay sauce

Fantastic pork satay in Melaka Town. Reasonable price of RM0. 90 per satay stick. The tasty portion of having pork satay in this restaurant is the satay sauce, heard from the restaurant owner that the sauce is make from pineapple
