from holiday in malaysia, back to dubai and now i’m in UK?
no, i didn’t go all the way to united kingdom to get this delicious satay – the ‘UK’ in its name actually stand for ‘urat keting’, because this satay restaurant also pride itself in serving one of the best ‘sup urat keting’ (soup with tendon) around.
as a satay-freak, i dare say that this is the best satay i’ve tasted in a long time, on par with my favorite satay haji samuri.
i love chicken satay, and chicken satay only – and i can say that the chicken satay at ‘satay UK’ is absolutely delicious. it’s big, bulky yet tender. it’s juicy and well-marinated. it’s grilled well without much black bits. the marinade used gives it a slightly different taste than satay haji samuri, which is its plus point. the taste really seeps through the meat, tasty and satisfying! the peanut sauce complements it very well too.

‘satay UK’ is situated at section 7, bangi very near kajang. it’s big and covers two shoplots so you won’t miss it. the place is also very well-lit, and spacious. the tables are also quite far apart to give a certain privacy – very conducive for parents dining with 3 boisterous boys like me!
i went with my in-laws, as my bro-in-law is treating us to this yummy dishes of satay, soup and nasi goreng.
my mom-in-law in peach tudung with the owner of satay UK, aunty normala who happens to be her good friend since form 4. having said that, i would like to mention that my review is in no way only positive just because the owner is a friend of my mom-in-law. the satay is really THAT good, with new delicious taste that i’m beginning to love!

as mentioned before, ‘satay UK’ stands for ‘urat keting’ which refers to the ‘tendon’ as a special ingredient in their soup. i’m not a fan of drinking soup just as it is like this, but mr. khairul is quite a fan, and he simply loved this one. he said it’s as delicious as can be – highly recommended for fans of soups, and new, unique dishes!
‘satay UK’ specializes in satay and soups but they also serve yummy nasi goreng (fried rice). their nasi goreng looked very simple, but tasty and well-seasoned! i tried the pataya rice (fried rice wrapped in omelette) and – yum!

even kazim enjoyed his share of satay, and this is his FIRST time really eating satay and handling the stick on his own. no worries, he ate them under extremely strict supervision! if you’re wondering whether ‘satay UK’ is as good or better than satay haji samuri, give it a try!
