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!

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...

The shared bathroom was no problem however, very clean, always spare TP, and...

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...
