“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Definitely worth a trip to this place. Good value especially when compared with most nearby resorts' restaurants. The fresh spring rolls and sukiyaki were top notch! Wish we had room for desert but both of us were defeated.

“Not #1 in my books”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Went to this restaurant as it was rated #1 on tripadvisor so was hoping for a great first meal in Thailand.

Didn't get it, the food was bland, the pad Thai was awful! Very greasy/oily and not a lot of flavour.
The tom ka gai soup lacked flavour, I've had better Thai back home.

Service was nothing special either, Maybe we came on an off night?

Not sure what all the fuss was about

“The best place to eat on Railay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

While staying in the beautiful Rayavadee, my wife and I wanted to find a more typical Thai restaurant with fantastic food at a base rate; this is Mangroves. The food is delicious, the service friendly and price low. We ate there more than once in our four days in Krabi and were never disappointed.

“Nothing to write home about”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Located some distance along Walking Street, service was friendly but very slow. Food is competitively priced, but just not great.

“Cheap but not that cheerful ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Don't get me wrong: the food was ok, and really good value. But we didn't see the amazing restaurant reviewed here. The Mangrove we experienced had slow and indifferent service (despite being almost empty), and average food.

Much cheaper than most places on Railei though, so a bargain meal out.
