GREENS is the best Thai Indian restaurant ever, we like to eat Thai wherever we go and have found none better than GREENS Paihia. We are fortunate in that we live close by and pick up a fabulous takeaway often.- Best flavour best value. I could not make a meal at home for this price or that tastes so good

Had a awesome night back in March at Greens, for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Could find fault with anything at all. The food was fantastic along with the service and friendliness of staff. Went there again last night for my Dads birthday and once again were presented with excellence. The Pad Thai was the best, along with the succulent... More

Nice hot curry on a cold night and it was very prompt considering it they had other patrons to attend to. Great work guys.

When my husband learned we were spending a Saturday night in Paihia he instantly wanted us to try out Greens again after an awesome meal there last time we stayed. We weren't disappointed - he had Pad Thai which he pronounced delicious and I had the Massaman Lamb Curry - the lamb was melt in the mouth and the portions... More

Ordered Thai Takeaway, asked for Oyster Chicken mild (I hate spices/hot). I got back to my hotel found SPICY Beef with so much chilli all over it - couldn't eat it at all. Checked the reciept and was charged correctly but obviously not made right. The only upside was the satay kebabs i started with. Wont ever go back -... More

We braved the wet and wild weather two nights for takeaways from here. The first night we had a thai dish and an indian dish, and the second time just indian. The thai was nice, but with a slightly indian taste to it - if that makes sense. Friendly and quick service (but not many were braving the weather).

We had a great meal here with friends, the men love Indian and the ladies wanted Thai, so this was perfect for us =) The food was Amazing! , and would definitely recommend this restaurant to others, Its not got the greatest decor, but the food is reasonably priced and we will definitely visit again.
