Better quality cheaper food than the hotels on the beach. Run by a lovely husband and wife team. service is variable but always with a smile.Worth the short walk up Walking Street to get there.No views, just a simple Thai outdoor eatery. You can get seafood from the place next door if desired.

It's not a fancy Resteraunt.
Typical Thai place in the middle from west to east railay, right across the "street".
Cheap and good Thai food, better than any Resteraunt on the island and much much much better and cheap from the tourist traps in the hotels.
We took the pad Thai chicken which was delightful and large portion.
Tom Tam which was ok, and fried basil with beef which was very good.
Really good shakes as well.
All in less than 350 THB.

Very good authentic thai food. Cheap as well. A little rustic compared to some of the hotel restaurants but this is an independent place and therefore can't afford to make a nice place. Very hard to find if you don't pay attention. I actually preferred the very fresh fish from the place next door called "Local Thai Food Restaurant". When I was here Mangrove's was completely empty and the place next door was standing room only.

this is perhaps the only place that is authentic thai and not a tourist trap in Railay Beach. Hidden behind the main street, it's not so difficult to find. The food is actually excellent and the service is very chilled out also.

It's a must visit when in railay beach!

Was being built just as I left, March 2012, my local (Thai) friends each and all steered me there Feb 2013, and it became my most frequented spots that month.
Restaurants have varied wildly over the past 14 years. This offered the best Thai food I've had there in the past decade, very reasonable prices.
My after-climbing mainstay, just walking back to Railay Garden View, was Mangrove's Mango Shake.
Mmmmmmmm!
