The last time we were in Paihia we tried Green's and thought it worthy of another visit. We tried the cashew chicken dish and also chose the curry puffs. The rice was $3.00 extra which we thought was a little steep, but realised this is probably due to Paihia being a tourist town. We waited for about 45 minutes for... More

Food we got from here was awesome, however it was two hours for delivery if we had realised this we probably wouldn't have ordered. In saying this when we spoke to them they said they were super busy which in my mind is the keycard of a good restaurant. People know good food and this is it. Nice fusion Thai... More

Excellent choice for groups with different tastes as the restaurant offers both Indian & Thai cuisine. We only tried the Indian, as for once, the whole family was in agreement about what we wanted to eat. Delish food with good customer service

We ate here 3 nights our of 6 that we were in Paihia we were so impressed with the food. This was during the Easter weekend and it was packed every night but the manager was able to fit us in each time without a booking (although we had to eat quick and be out by 7.30, but it was... More

Ordinary food, disorganized, very slow. Ordered takeaway Easter Sunday, 6.27pm, and was told it would be about 30 mins. I came back about 6.55 and was told it would be another 20 mins! Ok, I waited outside with others also waiting for their orders. At 7.25 someone came out with an order for Peter, order TA9. Nobody by that name... More

Hello Greg n Lee, Thank you for taking time to review us. It's indeed unfortunate to receive such a feedback after putting so much effort during such a busy Easter Weekend. Trust me it was one of the busiest Easter for us and we were not adeptly prepared for it and we do not have any hesitation in accepting it.... More

A very busy resteraunt. They have Indian & Thai chefs so 2 different menus with a full range on each. Food was served quickly and was very good. Staff were extremely friendly and happy to suggest meals. A couple of beers and a good feed. Good atmosphere. Well done.

I had done a search and decided this was a place worth a visit. I made a reservation a month in advance to secure a table. This place was so busy and flat out when we arrived, and having made a reservation we still had a good 20 min wait. The host was most apologetic and we were given menus... More

Description
We have been one of Paihia’s most popular restaurants since 2006 serving the finest Thai cuisine under the name ‘THAI GARDEN CAFÉ’ now rebranded as ‘GREENS’. Keeping the same Thai chefs, we are proud to announce that we have introduced full Indian meal, which will be served by a new team of highly experienced Indian Chefs.Lovingly prepared, authentic Thai and Indian cuisine, with a few surprisingly Kiwi twists – that’s what we have on menu at GREEN’S. With a wonderful mix of Thai and Indian dishes, you will enjoy the fusion of spice and flavour. From traditional dishes like Pad-Thai to Indian Butter Masala Chicken and new fish dishes which are closely guarded, using the finest quality ingredients is the speciality at GREENS.At GREEN’S, the dining experience is as important as the food itself. Take a seat in our modern and stylish water-front restaurant, and enjoy great service from our waiting staff.Whether here for lunch, dinner or a private function, enjoy an atmosphere that combines the Indo-Thai warmth with the friendliness Paihia is famed for.
