Great selection of food. Staff are really attentive at the beginning but start ignoring you once they've served your food. Food is yummy, quite busy so book ahead. Great location.

Average. Not bad. I won't warn people about it nor will I refer them. It's pleasant Indian and Thai food.

Convenient delivery, food had cooled excessively requiring re-heat. Food had good flavours without being excellent.

Absolutely Beautiful Indian food, I came here for dinner during my stay in Paihia and was not disappointed. The staff were friendly and attentive to the spice level of my food. I ordered the Chicken Vindaloo, which came with a serving of rice, as well as ordering the Garlic Naan. The Naan bread was fresh and crisp, with enough garlic... More

We were there for dinner and had the two persons meal. There was a couple of bellowing Englishmen who made the experience somewhat unique, however, they were unrelated to the establishment. Our server was funny and very helpful. Great food. Spent about $80

Okay so four of us went in. The waiter was a very friendly Indian guy. He handed out four Menus two of each. As all the staff were Indian we opted for that option. He assured us he has two different chefs to ensure our opinion was authentic. So the $70 buffet option for two X two was ordered. Really... More

Ordered some food to be delivered to our accommodation after a busy day exploring Paihia. We chose Greens as it is ranked #2 on Tripadvisor and was recommended to us by staff at our hotel. I think we may have just been unlucky with our meal because overall it was very disappointing. The poppadoms were tiny, rigid (like shop bought... More

We dined at 'Greens' a second time, this time ordering from the Thai menu. The service was equally as professional as the first visit, same waitress. We ordered pad Thai, red curry, massaman curry and combination seafood stir fry. It was tasty and flavoursome but there was very little beef in the massamum and what was there, was very chewy....

I have dined here many times and the food is always great. New to the Bay Of Islands and have been craving a good thai feast and GREENS fulfilled that with proving delicious food and even better service. Would definitely recommend in visiting or living in Paihia =)

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.
