Celebrated my birthday at Greens in Paihia. The menu is fantastic. It was difficult to choose as everything looked so good. I love Indian food and consider myself a bit of a connoisseur. Well, the meal was absolutely delicious and the dishes were a good size. Everyone was very satisfied with their choices. Yes, I would definitely go back next... More

We ate at Green's twice in the several days we were in Paihia. Both excellent meals. On balance, though the Thai cuisine was very good, we thought the Indian dishes were superb. Recommend both. Friendly service, excellent advice. Highly recommend as a low key place with great food.

Delicious meal at Greens tonight. I have a milk allergy so often find it difficult to eat out but our waiter was very helpful in pointing me towards the Thai menu options. My husband had a chicken korma and thoroughly enjoyed his meal. For both meals we were asked how spicy we would like it. Both meals were a good... More

An odd restaurant offering either a Thai or an Indian menu. We chose an Indian set menu. The food was OK. There certainly was plenty of it! We've had better and we've had worse. Service was friendly. Just not quite good enough for 4 stars but certainly adequate.

Authentic Thai and Indian cuisine covered by two complete menus in either style. Cozy restaurant and the food has bags of flavour. Will also do take away.

This place offers amazing food. We visit the Bay of islands regularly and we have to eat at this restaurant every time we come here. Food is great, service is outstanding, the owner/ manager/ waiter ( yes, same person) is friendly and approachable. Nice views. Indian is definitely a must, haven't tried Thai here. Will be back hopefully

Thank shaimaa a

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.
