We stayed for 7 nights at Southern Fried Rice, our first time to Phuket. It is a traditional feel / styled guest house. It is quiet, extremely clean, private and secure with sharp room prices. Excellent value. If you are a night owl you are close to the action and come home for a nice quiet sleep. Complimentary continental breakfast... More

The proprietor of 'Southern Fried Rice Guest House and Restaurant' Mr. Terje ('Terry') Hoff is a wonderful host and his staff are great as well. The rooms are large, clean, air conditioned, and well priced.. Although Kata can get noisy, the rooms here are quiet, yet still in the middle of everything and just a short walk to the beach....

Stayed here back in May but have only just got round to putting a review up...! Perfect location - five minute walk from the beach, and conveniently close enough to the shops etc. Terje was a great host, a real story-teller, and very knowledgeable about the local area. Rooms were perfectly suitable, very good for the price we paid! It... More

Southern Fried Rice's rooms are excellent value - bigger than the usual rooms - and the location is ideal for Kata Beach. Great place as a base to explore the island. Reasonably quiet too, and the food is excellent.

We stayed in Kata for only 2 days and did not stay at Southern Fried Rice. But found the place in the morning before we left for Naiharn and had breakfast there. Food was great and delicious. While we were eating, the owner was nice enough to stop by and talk to us. He found out we were leaving and... More

My friend and I stayed two nights here. It is a few minute walk to the beach, right on a cute little street with other hotels, shops and restaurants. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the staff is so friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay and all of the recommendations that the owner gave us. They... More

I stayed here for about a week on and off and it was everything I needed. It was clean, good wifi, spacious and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The only negative I encountered was with tuk tuk drivers not know where the hotel was. This is not really a hotel problem just something to take note of and... More

You can find more informations on their website : http://www.southernfriedrice.com/ This was our first stop to sleep in Phuket island. We got some difficulties to found the Guesthouse, because it’s not along the main road (Near the night market or pizza company restaurant). We met the director of the place, and we really enjoy him right away. He showed us... More
