Don’t judge a book by it’s cover! I apologize that I firstly invited by friend to this shop I was like yewwwww.... until my first bite. Ok sorry about that, this is the common issue of any traditional business. So I would fairly rate 5...stars as per their unique fragrant satay sauce and the food is fresh! If the environment issue solved, i would give a 6 stars.More

I have been through some reviews but ultimately I still choose to visit because no long queue out there. I'm impressed this satay is not as malay satay that we usually eat. This definitely more fragrant and aroma than the others. Environment is abit too...old yet to improve but taste never failed me! Loving this!!!!More

The place is relatively clean with lots of choices. But have to be early (before 6pm) if you want to avoid the crowd and long waiting time as they have limited sitting capacity. Parking is a problem, so try to park near the market and...walk.More

Since it came highly recommended...we decided to try the infamous Capitol Satay Celup....utterly disappointed. Don't know what's the big hype and long queues about....frankly the lok-lok around KL taste far better. The sauce / dip was nothing special and skewers unappealing. Wasted calories, time and...money.More

I read a lot of complaints that this place used to be better/cheaper/fresher. I have no way to compare since this was my first visit, but I liked it a lot. I like satay and, if you don't know, satay celup is not grilled, but...boiled in a hot and spicy peanut-containing sauce that is boiling right at your table. Kind of like a hot pot, but with hot peanut sauce instead of broth. This place offers a variety of food on skewers, all delicious. It also serves beer and pork, in case you want to know :)More

My husband is from Melaka and grew up eating satay celup, particularly Capitol's. It's been good and consistent for the longest time. However, when we went last night, we noticed that the satay sauce tasted different. The spices now overwhelmed the peanut sauce. The balance...was totally off and left a bitter after taste. We hope this is a one off lapse in QC.More

Unusual menu and way to eat, and also first time try, however we liked these satay. First, self service, choose and pick the satay from the display, different prices using different sticks. Second put on the tray and bring to your table and wait. Third,...the waiter will bring the satay peanut sauce mixed other ingredients and heated on the table with stove burner under the table. Fourth, dip the raw satay to the hot boiled sauce and ready to eat, yummy. Finally when finished, the waiter will come and count the price by identify and count the different sticks displayed on the table. At dinner rush hours need a bit waiting for the table, unforgettable but yummy experience,More

Not a fans of satay celup but its a good experience for tourist to try on Melaka delicacies. Its something like "lok lok" in KL but the difference was it soak in satay sauce and boil it so all food is with satay taste. haha.
