Room is very basic but was clean. Shower, air con and wifi worked well. Food was nice and reasonably priced. Owner was helpful. Location was central to restaurants/nightlife and not far from the beach.

I can't believe I found this place only now. I've been to Kata so many times, and this place is hidden on a back road. The fried rice is really fantastic, and the green curry is the best I've ever tasted. Awesome!!!

The location is perfect! Near beach and all happenings in that part of the city! But I feel weird in some situations... There was a lot older guys with young thai girls... And a older woman who work there was not very kind! I don't know, didn't feel very good there

We didn't actually stay at Southern Fried Rice, but I wish we had. We stayed nearby and I recognized the name from numerous guidebooks I read before we left, so decided to mosey in for breakfast. The special fried rice was incredible--the meal truly hit the spot--and the owner was as welcoming and helpful as possible. He got up himself...

Very good location -close to beach. Lovely food! Very helpful owners. Organised taxi pickup from airport. You can book your trips through them -cheaper and were always picked up at location and always dropped off at destination -including ferry tickets to next destination. Just remember Phantasea not open on Thursdays. All in all excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

A charming Norwegian man with a name I can not spell owns this restaurant/B&B and he offers the most reasonable prices for rooms that I have found in my stay in Patong, He offers motorbike rental which are also inexpensive and dependable.

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!
