Very tasty vegan Thai food. Generous portions, lots of different fresh vegetables in the stirfry. Very friendly staff. Moderately priced. Nice atmosphere, will definitely go back to try their Indian cuisine.

Best meal we had was here while at Paihia. Good service and the food was delicious. A standout was a green curry that had just the right amount of kick. Drinks prices weren't over the top either.

Very good food, at reasonable prices. Service was friendly but it was packed (despite it NOT being a holiday). If you want to avoid waiting, visit before 6pm

We visited here twice on the recommendation of our accommodation hosts. Both times delicious food, both Indian and Thai. The owner was very hospitable and prices were very reasonable.

We mixed Thai and Indian together and I must say it was excellent. A busy place with fairly simple decor, but it was very welcoming. Music was a little bizarre, but it did not detract from a lovely meal.

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.
