My cousin and I were looking for a cheap and comfortable accommodation during our graduation trip to Phuket. This guest house is definitely a great choice! We paid 1400 Bhat for two night (two people). For its location, Southern Fried Rice is about 250 meter from the Kata Beach which will only takes you a few minutes to walk there.... More

If you're unsure where to stay, think no further. This is the place. Southern Fried Rice is owned by this absolute gentleman from Norway who will, at all times, do his best to improve your experience. The rooms are cheap even though they're very comfortable and pleasant... plus, considering that breakfast is included, I think you'd have a hard time... More

We are staying in Patong good to go somewhere a bit different. Only 500 baht in tuk tuk . Lovely clean toilet as well. Pool table... More

sensational location, right near beach, restaurants bars and nightlife. Whilst you are right in amongst the action, SFR is in a very quiet enclave off the main streets. Rooms clean and tidy. It has its own bar and restaurant. The menu is extensive and the food is absolutely sensational - I wish I was there now - beautiful.... Excellent value... More

Absolutely incredible service at this hostel. The owner went out of his way to help booking island tours, and the staff went above and beyond anything we could have asked. The location is actually perfect, 5 minute walk from a beautiful beach and even shorter to great nightlife. Most importantly, the food... it is literally impossible to describe how good... More

I tried the kway teow phad. Best fried flat noodles. Tasty yet not oily. The other dishes were delicious at unbelievable prices. great value for dinners. Friendly and prompt service. They serve beers wine and other liquors but i recommend a cold beer with the kway teow phad. Place is homely and casual.

I have stayed at SFR 5 time over as many years. Terje and his staff can not do enough for their guest. The rooms are always spotless and the food is real authentic Thai food if that is what you like, if not there is always an alternative choice on the menu.

This hotels location to kata beach is unbeatable! Also very close to Monday night night market which is right across the street. Breakfast prices are the lowest I've seen, Only 50baht. Room is very basic and not the Cleanest I've stayed. If your not looking to spend a lot of time in the room, and want a budget place to... More

Stayed here for 3 days. Chose it based on reviews, proximity to beach (walking distance) and, of course, the great name! We had a lovely room, number 7. It was big with a balcony. We were pretty disorganised with our plans whilst we were here and the owner helped us book ferry tickets/ day trips/ moped hire all with <12... More
