    The food and staff made the stay 10/10, very enjoyable. Brand new mattresses that are very comfy Air conditioners weren’t blowing cold air, and the shower didn’t have cold cold water so it wasn’t very refreshing Other than that, it was a great stay and having the restaurant open to the street was very entertaining. Very nice location, right beside the kata street seafood market which is always bumping, yet we are set off to the side enough that we have some peace and quiet. Close to beach

    Free breakfast was good, rooms very spacious with great facilities for the price, daily cleaning was a bonus! Best Thai food we have ever eaten as well, at prices often half as cheap as the places on the main road! We ate here five nights straight! Even if you don't stay here, get to the restaurant, you will not be disappointed!

    Southern Fried Rice was a chill place to stay in the Kata Beach area. The owner, Terry, was nice and made conversation with us, as well as helped us book a few island tours for a lower price than advertised. The food at the restaurant is also really good. They cleaned the rooms every day and it was close to the beach and right next to the Kata Night Market. If you’re looking for a social atmosphere, this is not the place to go, but if you want a clean, private, relaxing place to stay, go here.

    Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Accommodations were simple, but had everything we needed. Our room was spacious, included a small fridge with some beverages and room was cleaned daily. Restaurant was tasty and the beers were cheap. Great location, ten minute walk to the beach and right next to the night market. We had no trouble with the noise from the street even given its location.

    Amazing value and great location. Just a 10 minute walk to the beach, steps away from the night market, restaurant, massages, etc. It’s in the middle of all the action but still really quiet. The restaurant downstairs is very convenient and nice. All the staff are kind and helpful. We’d definitely stay again.

    The owner is temperamental. I noted I would check in around 11pm, I arrived at 11:06, called the number 3 times and no one answered, the place was locked, I had to wait for other guests to arrive to let me in and then knock on random doors to find whoever was supposed to be in charge of reception. He advertises that you can rent motorcycles, you can’t anymore. The owner is very old, 76? And getting ready to sell the place, he made me uncomfortable with his attitude, he referenced Police.
