Description: 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.

We ate here twice while staying at the apartments next door.
On the first visit we were impressed with the good service and excellent Goan fish curry and paneer naan bread, although our starters turned up after the main course had arrived! The onion bhajis were the best we have ever had but the vegetable samosas were a bit dry.
On our second visit we tried some different Indian dishes which were tasty but not as good as the Goan fish curry. We had a window seat on both visits which has a great view of the water front.

We decided to go Indian takeaway as we were staying in accommodation nearby with a great view. The owner delivered two glasses of wine on the house while we waited; a very considerate touch and totally unexpected as we were conversing with a couple of fellow travellers we had met the day before. The servings were plentiful and tasty; we went back the following night. We engaged in a great conversation with the owner, who made time for us and was clearly appreciative of our second visit. For dining in, get there early to take advantage of the waterfront views; spectacular.

The service was very good, and they have a great range on the menu. Maybe too much, as both Thai and Indian included.

We ordered a curry puff entrée (good), Thai fishcakes (rubbery, no decent texture) and the SP2, special with beef, lamb and chicken, to share. They gave us two plates, with some rice on each, VG. We liked the sauce and the mix of veges, but some of the meat was a bit chewy, and the lemongrass left in would have been best removed as it was inedible. It's really for flavour anyway.

We like Thai food, both cooked at home and to eat out, and this one left us disappointed.

My wife and I had a great Indian meal at this fantastic Indian and Thai restaurant in Paihia. We were staying at the apartment complex right next door and the service at this restaurant was really good.

I came in late but was still made welcome. They even charged my phone for me! This is both Thai and India, and I elected for Thai as was dining alone. They were not able to be flexible on the Thai dishes as most Thai restaurants can be (Indian chefs I believe), but was still very tasty and great value for money. Thanks guys.
