Nothing special about this place. The food is fast and the atmosphere feels more like a food hall but the meals are decidedly average. Nothing wrong with the food but really nothing special either. If you are looking for fast and cheap, this is the place for you. If you want something special go elsewhere.

Ordered Pad Thai here. Tasteless slop. No garlic no chilli, no spices, no peanuts, no lemon grass.Absolute rubbish. Go around the corner.

Always a favourite. Cheap, fresh food and happy staff makes this a great eating place. Love their laksa and pad thai. So much choice and really good prices.

There is absolutely nothing flashy about The Oaks Satay Noodle House, but they do offer a heap of choices of the noodle, rice, and stir fry variety - and most for a mere $12-$13 per plate. If you're looking for a cheap eat without any fuss but where you can still sit down at a table with a knife and... More

Sorry I haven't take any photos before I eat, but it's so amazing the laksa chicken noodle soup, perfect coconut and curry scale, beautiful chicken and just enough portions. Well, I will come back for it next time!

Looking for simple but great asian cuisine that's good value for money? Then this is one place you should visit. Its tucked away upstairs on the corner of Cuba and Manners, above Arty Bees Books. Accessed off Cuba.

A colleague made me aware of the existence of this place and I'm glad he did! For the most part, you'll find the usual suspects somewhere between dish #1-#42. The first time I came here, I had the Nasi Goreng and I've struggled (unsuccessfully) to venture beyond it. It's a seriously big portion. On the most recent visit, I decided... More

It is what it is...cheap and cheerful. We had green curry and red curry, rice and roti for two and spring rolls. It was just OK...both the curries were pretty average, one was watery and the other more like a stew. Spring rolls, rice and roti were fine. I'm sure there are better places on Cuba Street but this place... More

Found the Oaks Satay and Noodle House in a wander around the centre of Wellington and it was just what we were looking for. Simple, no fuss, clean, fast, efficient and tasty food at affordable prices. Loved it.

The Oaks is my local Asian restaurant that always comes through with good food for great value. It's not fancy at all, but when you are looking for good food for an excellent price, stop by and have a meal.
