Second visit to Greens. Absolutely superb establishment. From the second you walk through the door, you are welcomed and receive top quality service throughout. The choice of food in both Thai and Indian is excellent and the presentation/quality exceptional.

Having stayed @ a nearby Holiday Park we drove into Paihia, a picturesque village, looking for something more than the backpacking meals we had over the previous few days. Green's (a name obviously not descriptively associated with fine Indian or Thai food) found us (with help... More

The food and service was so exceptional that we went twice in our visit to paihia. The first night we had the Indian menu and it was some of the best Indian food we've had! The Thai we had the following night was absolutely delicious as well!! The staff were very attentive and communicative and helpful in our food selection.... More

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.
