Nice to find a place that isn't either trying to gouge you for every last baht and serves great food with a smile. The waiter/owner Bird works hard, speaks excellent English and listens when you tell him you don't want the spice dumbed down for tourists (I suggest medium thai spicy if you want to try some more authentic Thai food. I lived in Thailand for 2 years and full Thai spicy is for the foolish, the daring and the Thais who are accustomed to it). Tried about 8-9 dishes here and they were all great. The tom yum in the coconut shell was outstanding as was the whole fish, and the pad se ew was excellent.

Looks like a hole in the wall, but wow it was good.

We tried Wan-a-Ruoy on our last night in Railay and wished we had tried it sooner. Although the location is not ideal (next to the gun range; I feel bad for the owners because I'm sure it harms business when people are shooting) the food is worth it. Prices are very reasonable; just 70 baht for chicken Pad Thai that was much better than the 150 baht pad Thai I had at a beachfront restaurant the night before. The fruit shakes were the best we had in Krabi. Best of all, the family-run business was very accommodating and the staff seemed very thankful for our patronage. We liked it so much that we returned the next morning for breakfast, which was fantastic - we had western food - pancakes and eggs. The Thai-style iced coffee was the best we had in Krabi as well - authentic, strong coffee (not instant) with milk for only 70 baht (some places charged 100+ for an inferior coffee). Definitely recommend!

We tried eating our first dinner in Krabi at the Raillay Village Resort, where we were staying, but it was INEDIBLE! We went to bed hungry and set off the next morning to find some decent food. We ate at a couple of restaurants, but once we'd found Wan-A-Rouy, we remained loyal customers for all our meals. Their food is authentic Thai, fresh, delicious, asethetic and very reasonably priced. The service was wonderful. Bird, the waiter who served us each time was especially friendly, attentive, helpful and professional. We were sad to have to say goodbye when we left. We definitely recommend you try Wan-A-Rouy... and please send warm regards to Bird!

Came to stay in Railay beach for a week ending up eating dinner here everyday trying different dishes and drinking pure fruit juices. Food was delicious and staff were very friendly! Would definitely recommend eating here.

My Thai girlfriend and I were looking for a Thai food restaurant with decent prices and good quality. We eventually ended up in this place as we found it has the best quality at good prices.
Since I got a diarrhea from the restaurant of "Railay Village Resort" which knocked me out for 4 days we decided to only go to Wan A Rouy. It was funny because the owner said she often see people come one day, then won't come on the other day (trying out another place) and eventually come again to her restaurant for the rest of their stay.
By the way, even the burger was very good, though the fries were not because she uses a frie pan to cook them.
