Love the place!”
Good location. Place is near to beach, night market and convenience stores. Nice and helpful staff. I was allowed to check-in earlier and the staff prepared breakfast in advanced for me and my family for our long journey the next morning. Room was clean and cozy. Love the big window because we like bright room.

Ideally located, quiet, friendly and unassuming guesthouse ”
Clean, spacious, well appointed rooms; effortless hospitality from the friendly owner Terje (challenge him to a game of chess or pool sometime); and a tasty menu (the Panang curry is especially recommended if you like it hot) should put this modest and competitively priced option top of your list. I was in Kata to study rather than party, and the peace and quiet, combined with sympathetic smiles and service, really helped my cause. Thank you and I look forward to staying here again... next time, just for a holiday :)

Amazing Room Near the Beach!”
We were a group of 3 in the family room and we were allowed to check in early. Big, spacious room with flat screen TV. Very fast, reliable internet (was able to do video chat). The owner was very nice. The breakfast included is just fruit, toast, and coffee/tea but they will give you a good deal if you order other food. You can hear people coming up the stairs, but we are heavy sleepers so it wasn't a big deal. Great location since it is only 5 min walk to the beach and surrounded by shops and restaurants. Amazing place to stay on a budget!

Value for a budget price & good location.”
1) Just behind the street front hotels so great location and very quiet. Close to beach path. 2) Very quiet! We had a good sleep. 3) Very accomodating & helpful owner. Arranged drivers for us at low prices. Gave us good advice. 4) Excellent food at their cafe and low cost! 5) Free use of snorkeling equip, umbrellas, beach stuff. 6) Just near the Kata Night Market Thur-Sunday.

Kind Owner, personable staff, clean room, decent food
I stayed for 6 nights in the SFRC. I completely enjoyed my stay here. It was the perfect place for me to relax and hang out on the beach. Owner was very kind and helpful. I was left with the impression that he enjoys running his business and meeting people from all over the world. if I were to return, I would easily stay here.

Great value for money, close to the beach, good food”
Very spacious room, all amenities in perfect working condition (AC, hot water, Wi-Fi, fan, TV). I liked that the AC blows cold air NOT on the bed so it is not cold to sleep. Very good restaurant with reasonable prices and combo offers. Friendly and helpful owner and staff. Helped me to get a taxi to the airport for a price better than in town. The breakfast included in the room price is not extensive but you can 'upgrade' to a big one for just 50 Baht. Anyway, one cannot complain considering the price. Perfect place to stay at the Kata beach on a budget! Looking forward to come back :)

Perfect! True hospitality”
One of the best places we've stayed in. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Terje arranged for our tours at really cheap rates, almost half of what was advertised on the flyers. The food was delicious, fresh ingredients and the servings plenty, we always left with a full belly. The room we stayed in was clean and large, it got cleaned every day. Thanks so much for the wonderful stay. We'll definitely stay here again if ever we come back to Phuket.

Decent accommodation and a friendly welcome for a budget price.”
Southern Fried Rice is a great little guesthouse. We booked 10 days in room No. 4. Private en suite room, clean and spacious, it has a small balcony and high speed Wi Fi. The owner was very helpful and looked after us very well. The food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and very tasty. We ate out a few times but found that, on the whole, we preferred the food from Southern Fried Rice and it was usually cheaper. The owner can also book excursions for you. Brilliant holiday.

Can't beat the friendly staff and location!”
SFR is a wonderful place with yummy food and the best prices in Kata/Karon. We know because we checked! Friendly staff and clean environment make this place more like a home than a hotel. Owner Terje (Terry) gave wonderful advice about tours and attractions in the area, plus arranged an airport taxi for us for half of the street price. The food at SFR was top notch... very reasonably priced and delicious. I highly recommend the chicken and cashew nuts, green curry chicken or stir fried chicken vegetable. The BEST pad Thai in Kata/Karon beach area of Phuket is available here! Spiciness is optional... as I am allergic, my food was expertly prepared to my taste, while my travelling companion enjoyed hers deliciously spiced. I would most definitely stay here again. SFR's reputation as a top notch guest house is well deserved! SFR is a great place to stay for your Phuket vacation.

Free breakfast is good; also a more substantial option for only 50baht. Free pool table, chess boards and large flat screen downstairs always on. Location 5min walk from Kata beach.

even I arrived about 4am(due to flight schedule), the staff was quite nice to me. the room was quite tidy, but there was no view at my side I don't know why but it was blocked some fence. Except it, clean and quiet atmosphere generally and perfect to relax alone. I definitely will visit there once I come back to Phuket:)

totally nice stay”
staff, service, tidy
We stayed a few days at southern fried rice guesthouse. We payed 600 baht together for a room with aircon and included breakfast. The breakfast is nothing to get exited about. 2 slices of toast with marmelade and butter and the choice between freshfruit and fruitjuice and the choice between coffee or tea. If you dont have that included cost 50 baht. the manager is often around. He is qquite helpful. Ask him if you have questions. He booked a trip from phuket to phi phi for us for 350 baht per person. Taxi is included so they get you from the hostel. 7eleven is 2 miniute walk. You can rent scooter for 200 baht per day. Insist on 200 because a staffmember wrote 250 down first but normal is 200. With the scooter it is easy to get everywhere in phuket. Rooms are clean. Everyday roomservice and new towel and new waterbootles for the minibar which are free. All in all had a really nice stay. Staff is very friendly. Would come back!
