I have nothing bad to say about this amazing place. The food was delicious with generous portions, a salad and veggie bar included with most main meals. Desserts were morish and all of it was at an extremely reasonable price! We left full and stoked to have made it in. Thanks to all the friendly staff in and out of... More

Had the Roast of the day and was pleased I did ..succulent and tasty roast pork ...veg options were perfectly cooked and the salad bar was fresh and tasty ..only thing I'd recommend is an oil based dressing for the green salad. Would definitely go back here again.

On holiday in NZ and decided to eat dinner here after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Not somewhere you would stumble across as away from main restaurant area. As other reviewers have said, not the most attractive venue - but the food is good and the portions are generous. The meats etc are good but for me the star of the... More

We are visiting Paihia from Australia and found the restaurant prices are ridiculous, so after a walk around we discovered the Paihia Club. Highly recommend.

Found this restaurant recommended on trip advisor, which is off the beaten track. Very good menu and Roast beef was one of the specials for evening which we had and was very good. Self service salad bar and buffet style vegetables. Drink prices we very reasonable as well. Great value and highly recommended.

What a great place. Fantastic quality food for reasonable price. You can help yourself to as much veg salad and potatoes as you like. Some self service and like a working mens club inside - food is superb we loved it. Wished we had gone on our first night!

Not an attractive venue but for good food at reasonable prices it's great. Drinks downstairs food upstairs. Self serve from veg/salad selection depending on what's ordered. Friendly staff and visitors. Easy to sign in. Was going to give "very good" rating but realised it's worth more! Excellent food, value and service

We had the pork and it was tender and delicious. There is so much to choose from in the buffet style salad & vegies. My husband is hard to fill, but not at Legends!

The food is why you come here, not the decor! Each of our dinners (we are a family of 5, 4 adults and one teen) were delicious and presented beautifully. The family was a little nervous when we arrived, (I would compare it to an American VFW or Lodge) but as soon as the food arrived, everyone was happy to... More
