Legends is aptly named, they are "legends" the food is top class and there is a good variety. Specials change regularly and the price is very competitive. Staff are friendly and helpful. Legends is at the Paihia Ex-Servicemens Club who make you very welcome.

After those meals we ordered sticky date pudding and we could not make a better choice. It is not possible to leave this place hungry because you can help yourself with salads and vegetables bar....

Legends is actually a part of the Paihia ex services club. Located near the Paihia school with plenty of free parking. This is a typical ex services club, similar to the RSL clubs in Australia, with separate bar and food areas. You get your drinks from the bar and order your grub at the restaurant.

Thank you Sasha, Clint and staff for the wonderful experience we had last night, while celebrating a 50th birthday. They went all out!
