We visited Greens after a recommendation from someone and we couldn’t have been happier with the choice. The food was exceptional, very authentic Thai cuisine. Also reasonably priced especially for the area. We will definitely be visiting again on our next visit to Paihia

We were overcharged on our bill and the waiter got the order wrong. Food was ok. the help was not. The sign outside said Indian Thai. This is mostly an Indian restaurant.

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.
