Nyok Lan Kajang Satay @ Restoran Malaysia


I have been busy over the last weekend to prepare myself for my new job in Cyberjaya starting later this month. So, I went down to KL/Kajang/Kepong/Serdang/Damansara to look for a place to stay as well as shop for furniture at IKEA. Of course, I also visited some of my favorite eating places and share it with you guys. First stop is Kajang, where I went for its famous Satay Kajang.

Needless to say, when people mention sate Kajang, the first restaurant they would think of is Haji Samuri. I think most people have already tried and blogged about it so there’s no need for further introduction. They are so successful that they already opened a branch in Damansara, so that people won’t have to travel to Kajang for the real thing.

In Kajang town, there’s satay selling everywhere. I think one would be sick of satays even before being able to try all of them lol. Nyok Lan Kajang Satay is a Chinese owned stall operating in Restoran Malaysia. They have the usual variety of meat available like chicken, mutton, fish and beef. For side dishes there are the usual ketupat (satay rice) and cucumber which will be charged extra. Shown here are chicken (60cents) and fish (90cents) satays. And the peanut sauce is mixed with sambal to create a sweet and spicy taste. You can see they aren’t stingy with the peanut sauce, you can request as much as you want.

It is a nice alternative for good Kajang satay if you have only been to Haji Samuri and want to try something new. I know of a stall in Bayan Lepas that sells sate Kajang just opposite PSDC. It is a corner house located along the same row with Klinik Singapore. And they claim they obtain the supply of satay directly from Haji Samuri in Kajang. I have tried it before and although the taste is a bit off the real thing, it should be good enough to give you the fix.

  1. Aiyo, you guys post all the delicacies back home which I cannot get over here in the U.S. I made my own satay but they are not authentic like Kajang Satay. There are two shops on the main street and I like the one which also sells satay daging kambing. The rest or them are near the stadium.

    All the best wishes on your new job. I have never been to Cyberjaya yet.

  8. Saya masih ingat lagi di waktu kecil pakcik saya selalu bawa saya ke restoran ini pekena nasi goreng cina dia.. sampai bungkus bawa balik simpan dalam peti sejuk dan makan esok harinya.. tapi sekarang uncle tukang masak gemuk tu dah takde lagi mana perginya saya pun tak tahu.. nasi goreng cina dia ni memang saya tidak jumpa lagi mana mana kedai yang boleh lawan.. uncle!! i’m really miss your nasi goreng… were r you doing business now?????

  9. If anyone knows were is this uncle doing business please do reply.. i am 33yrs old right know.. i think last i’ve been there is around 20+++ yrs ago.. i am really miss his nasi goreng like crazyyy…

  10. It’s great to come across a great food blog. Nice review and pictures you’ve got! Im from Kajang.Been tasting Nyok Lan’s satay since I was a child =P

  11. The satay at Nyok Lan don’t have fat compare to the satay at Haji Samuri. The gravy is watery and a little sweet. The fish satay was oily and is made from dory fish meat. We ordered hokkien mee too and the taste is kinda bland.

  12. i am a local kajang person who stay here since for the past 30 years. if you want to hear the honest comment, dont go here, why ?
    1. rude and bad customer service, they wont serve you good
    2. super duper stingy of its sauce, i dont know why the author could write as not stingy, how little small bowl of sauce, i think 2 satay can make me finished the water-drop-bowl, author please be honest ok ? dont cheating.
    3. go to haji samuri is better la …
