Visited the Mangrove Restaurant 2 out of 3 nights.

Its nestled away past walking road in a small vicinity. It doesn't look much but the food was just brilliant. Its proper Thai, no touristy gimmicks just great authentic food.

The massaman curry was my favorite and would definitely go back again and again.

They also do laundry which is really cheap during the day!

This place is a real hidden gem and I am so glad we looked on trip advisor and found this one. It is a little way down walking street- so its not on th beach, but the food and atmosphere more than make up for that. The food is about a third of anything you will find on the beach too. The service is really good and the food was amazing. Real Thai food cooked simply and everything we ordered was delicious. We stayed on Railay beach for 3 nights and ate here for two of those. Would love to go back!

This small family run place offers authentic thai food at reasonable prices. Top dishes are the Laab, seaweed soup and the chicken and cashews. The staff are great, we eat here twice a day for 3 days in a row.

Just got back from a 4 day stint in Railey West and found the Mangrove Restaurant to be a fabulous choice. As people have mentioned before it is situated on the path that connects Railey East and West so can be a little muddy during the rain... But the food is great and cheap and Lots of people seem to think the same counting the number of people eating!

At first didn't find this place, as went up Walking Street and didn't take the sand path to the left. They don't have a sign, but follow the way to Utopia (which wasn't actually open). There are a few shanty shops/food outlets in a row. The food here was freshly cooked, and once again cooked without garlic (which I am allergic). Peaceful cool setting away from the constant long boat diesel engine noise of Railay West. Lovely family service, and the place filled for lunch, which they managed well.
Absolutely will return over the next few days for lunch and/or dinner. Happy travels...
