Free pick-up from the airport for more then a week's stay was a nice perk when arriving after a long flight. The owner Terje and his staff are friendly and attentive. Rooms are large, clean and the beds are the most comfortable I've had yet in Asia. Quick walk right to Kata Beach though the path down a canal that... More

The rooms are clean and very large. The host Tereya is very welcoming and friendly. All of the staff are friendly. It's a great place to relax as it doesn't feel like a business operation when you stay. It is also complimented by sensational restaurant on site.

Based on earlier reviews and prices, we chose Kata beach and specifically SFR for our stay at Phuket. SFR may not be the place to stay for those who are looking for a room with a view but as we were in our room only for the night, we didn't regret our decision in any way. One has a choice... More

Loved it here! Good location and short walk from the beach. We were able to book our transport from Phuket - Ko Samui here, aswell as hire a motorbike :) the owner is really friendly, but kept telling us how he doesn't like booking.com. We ended up getting moved into another guesthouse a block away (which was good to) because... More

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.

It was my first time in Thailand and it was my best first time))))) I was with my mother and my friend. Kata Region is very good and the beach is clean and comfortable. Southern Fried Rice is a comfortable place too. The rooms are big and pleasant. The prices in the restaurant are attractive and the food is delicious.... More
