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 :)

Reviewed October 21, 2017
The wifi was not working for 2 hours due to a cable that was cut accidentally by a telephone company. The wifi here is in general considered among the best on the island.This guest from the us changed room at the same time as wifi was up and working again.Guests are sometime too impatient .He booked one night and got up rather late in the morning and as said changed hotel as the wifi was back.

+ room was big, a/c and Wi-Fi perfect, nice bed + owner from Norway was nice as expected from all the previous reviews, young staff also nice + Thai food is delicious + very quiet at night - the old woman (the cook) was very rude, never a smile, never a word, she always seemed angry at us, very disappointing - the breakfast is little bit poor, only coffee and toast (coffee is good btw) Overall a good place to stay

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 :)

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.

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!
