Interesting cuisine to try if you are in Melaka (only if you have the time to queue). Reached at around 4.30pm, and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. After we are seated, we head over to an area with all the skewers, and...More

There is only one Capitol Satay. I queued for 2 hours (from 7.45pm till 9.50pm) to get a table. The restaurant is pretty small with about 10 tables. They serve steamboat in RM$12 for a giant prawn. Each stick at RM$1.20 with some premium items...More

We queued there about 1 hour ar 10 pm. After meal, we understood why queue. This was our best meal in Malasia. They want to have satey again, and recommend to colleagues in factory.

Heard the hype about this place, and decided to check it out on the first day of my most recent Malacca trip. Reached the place at about 6.15pm and there was already a long queue, and only got a table at about 7.30pm. It's like...More

Bad experience there. Had to wait in line for seating only to be disappointed by the food. Most of the food is out in the open and not refrigerated or covered properly. The cheese sausage was especially stale. Did not enjoy and not recommended. Had...More
