    The fried rice has no characteristic from any region. Does the sentences make sense?

    1) There are two kinds of fried rice in Malaysia. One kind has the southern characteristic which is saltier whereas another kind has northern characteristic which is sweeter. The fried rice that serve at the restaurant which i went just now, has no characteristic from any region.

    2) There are two kinds of fried rice in Malaysia. One kind is the southern style and another kind is the northen style. The fried rice that the restaurant cook are not related to any of the style.

    1) There are two types of fried rice in Malaysia. the southern which is saltier and the northern characteristic which is sweeter. The fried rice that serve at the restaurant which i went just now, does not belong to any of them.

    1) There are two kinds of fried rice in Malaysia. Southern rice is salty whereas northern rice is sweet. The fried rice that is served at the restaurant where I just ate, shares no characteristics with either.

    You can't say 'either region' because rice cannot share anything with a region, only with other rice. It would have to be:... shares no characteristics with rice from either region.

    2) There are two kinds of fried rice in Malaysia - southern style and northern style. The fried rice that the restaurant serves is not related to either.

    Thanks for replying guys.

    I was reffering to fried rice, not just specifically rice. I have reconstructed the sentence, does it sound better?

    The fried rice that i ate at the restaurant share no style of characteristic with any the region in Malaysia wheter is South or North.

    "The restaurant cooks its rice in a style unrelated to either the northern or southern Malaysian style."

    There are many ways you can say this, but try to make it grammatical.

    NO! That sounds terrible.

    JTRiff and Raymott have given you excellent answers. There's no way you can improve on those.

    Ow.
    The fried rice that I ate at the restaurant shared no characteristics with Southern or Northern Malaysian rice. They are salty and sweet, and the restaurant rice tasted like (fried poodle hair.
