They have been very successful with the fame of their satay, that they have more than 10 branches around Malaysia; and even in R&Rs along the highways.
The entire complex, headquartered in Kajang belongs to them and the place is fully air-conditioned.
The place is well-organized with the tables neatly lined for their customers, and ceiling fans affixed to provide more ventilation. There are counter booths designated for the preparation of drinks and the gravy, condiments.
There is a separate section for the barbecuing of the satay/sate; which was an advantage and also a considerate move on their part as not many would enjoy walking away after their meal with a strong scent of barbecued meat lingering in their hair or clothes to remind them of their meal.
There is also a dedicated section for the ordering to be made at the counter, and payment is made on the spot upon order placement.
The place is also well-decorated with their collection of antiques from the past; from ancient shelf memorabilia to ice shaving machines.
First to arrive is the usual condiments for the satay; the peanut sauce gravy along with the sambal (spicy chili paste) and also side orders of the ketupat (stuffed rice dumpling in a woven palm leaf pouch) and cucumbers.

The satay platter; a mix of Chicken Satay and Fish Satay.
The fairer in the golden shade is the unique fish satay; which is one of the unique flavor used in satay compared to the usual meaty fare of chicken, beef, or mutton.
The fish satay was succulent and the honeyed flesh was tender and delightful with every bite.
The stuffed rice dumpling
A refreshing treat from the taste of barbecue is the cold shaved ice from a bowl of Ice Kacang (Ais Kacang in Malay).
We should have ordered it in ABC; or Ais Batu Campur (Mixed Shaved ice) which would probably come with more ingredients as this was filled with red kidney beans, sweet corn and grounded nuts in heavy syrup. The usual fare would also include cendol and grass jelly, which would complete it.
Well, I must make a mental note of it the next time.
Overall, the food here was quite good, and the prices were reasonable too.
Price for the chicken satay and fish satay: MYR0.80/stick
There are also other drinks and beverages available; from lime juice to watermelon juice (by glass or by a whole jug), the prices are reasonably ranged from MYR2.50-MYR7.00.
There are also ample parking spaces and as the place is air-conditioned, it is an advantage.
In all, the place was well thought in planning to cater to the needs of the customers and the owners have also maintained it well to ensure the maximum comfort of everyone.
There is no reason not to make this part of my itinerary the next time I am home~
