Very friendly stuff. Big and clean rooms. Fastest WiFi I've had in Thailand. Nice breakfast. Take a surf at Kata Beach, try the green curry at the Hotel and play snooker and watch soccer with the owner:-)

Really great place to stay, minutes walk from the beach, cheap but clean with good basic facilities for the rooms. They provide beach mats, towels, parasols for katakana beach, which is a lovely beach and not over crowded! High light is the owner and staff who are super friendly and helpful! Also does very good food!

By far one of the best Thai Food I've tried anywhere including 5 star hotels. I'm a trained chef and have been worked in various countries for more than 14 years. By this place tops most of it. Biggest plus was that my wife and son are vegetarians and they loved the food so much, we had pretty much every... More

No matter what you're looking for, Southern Fried Rice has some lovely accommodations. My husband and I were travelling on the cheap, so we requested a basic room with A/C and shared bathroom, but there are also some very nice larger rooms with attached bathrooms as well. The shared bathroom was no problem however, very clean, always spare TP, and... More

We've been going to Phuket and staying at Southern Fried Rice for about 10 years now and each time we visit we're amazed at the quality of accommodation offered by Terje (Norwegian owner) and the value this represents. SFR's location in Kata is 'the icing on the cake'...it's minutes from the beach and surrounded by great restaurants, however, if you... More

I booked 7 nights to stay at Southern Fried Rice Guesthouse. However, I enjoyed my stay so much that I extended it by 4 nights. I leave the day after tomorrow. The rooms are amazing value for money and are immaculately cleaned every day. As I was conducting business daily, it was reassuring to have fast and reliable wifi. Finally... More

I stayed for 29 nights at this guesthouse in room 3. It was a large room with a large double bed (probably queen size) which was clean and valeted every day. The facilities include a flat screen TV with satellite, a jug to make tea/coffee, a safe in the wardrobe (at waist height so easy to access) with ensuite shower,... More

We unfortunately only got to spend a night here but given the chance, I definitely would have stayed longer! The owner is a lovely guy, so helpful and welcoming. We had a deluxe double which was clean, had aircon, hot shower, comfy bed, little balcony, mini fridge, TV. Excellent. We ate at the hostel too which was delicious. It was... More
