Tonight we had the best butter chicken we've ever eaten! The Goat Kadal was fantastic as well. Loved it, thanks team!

The staff were great when our group of 8 hungry divers turned up. Everyone enjoyed their meal though I found my median Rogan Josh too spicy - add some yoghurt and I was good to go. Will go back when we return but will order...mild.More

Had dinner twice at Greens Indian restaurant in Paihia this week. Recommend prawn saag (delicious) and goat curry masala (also delicious). The samosas and stuffed Paratha also great! We also ate at Greens Thai last night and had a phenomenal duck on sizzling plate with...vegetables and finished off with baked banana fritter with ice cream! thank you for three lovely dinners (and the left overs!)More

We just had dinner at greens Thai restaurant and it was so yummy! The curry and stir fry was to die for. The customer service was outstanding and definitely made our dining experience so much more enjoyable. It’s hard to get good food and good...service these days! So if you want both then go to greens. Will be back for sureMore

Whenever we are in paihia we always eat at greens Indian, for the last 10 years + i have never had anything but fantastic food and great service. When i first ate there they had to put up a lean to extension with ply wood...and tarps to try and cater for the people queueing. Between the Indian and greens Thai next door they have now grown to have 1st class surroundings to match the 1st class service and foodMore

Previous evening was an 'Indian' followed by a Thai tonight (next door). Wonderful waterfront setting, excellent staff and a fine (traditional Kiwi Thai menu). All meals came out in quick time and had wonderful garnishes - nice touch

We were camping on a wet night in Paihia and so decided Dinner would be cooked for us by this Thai restaurant. Great choice as the spring roll entrees, the basil mixed seafood and the prawn noodle dishes we chose would have to be the...best we have had in NZ for a long time. And even better was they delivered it to our campsite. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.More
