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.

Always hate recommending restaurants as food is too often down to personal taste,however in the case of Greens I'll make an exception. A group of us had a selection of Indian/Thai dishes and could not fault the flavours or portions served. When ordering Takeaway you will have to wait at least 20 mins before its ready for collection but don't... More

What a fantastic surprise to find a delicious, authentic Indian/Thai dining experience as far north as Paihia! One of our daughters loves Thai food and she loved the spicy, sweet and sour dish which was beautifully presented, our younger children enjoyed their creamy butter chicken while I had a delicious chicken dopiaza which was so tasty and my husband enjoyed...

We went to Greens based on the recommendations in TA (and there is not a huge choice of restaurants in Paihia!), and the fact that it was close to our hotel. The restaurant appears to be family run and this shows in the service which was very good thoughout our meal. The food is good quality Indian comparable with food... More

We visited Green's two nights in a row. The first night we had Indian - this was delicious. The second night we had Thai - it was good, but we definitely preferred the Indian. The staff were friendly, helpful and very attentive. Lovely view - right across the road from the beach. Would recommend.

A great place with friendly service and really good food. Being about to have naan and samosa with a Thai curry is great.

it's not often trip advisor lets me down but we were dissappointed with our meals last night. The wait staff were friendly and helped choose our meals. The combination entree for 2 only had one of everything on it. The main courses tasted like they had been stewing in a Bain Marie for a while rather than freshly cooked. Quite... More
