Sombat's Fresh Thai Cuisine Review

There's a reason why locals flock to this hideaway for the best Thai cuisine in Hilo, and the name says it all. Fresh local ingredients highlight proprietor Sombat Saenguthai's menu (many of the herbs come from her own garden) to create authentic and tasty Thai treats like coconut curries, fresh basil rolls, eggplant stir-fry, and green papaya salad. Most dishes can be prepared with your choice of tofu, pork, beef, chicken, squid, or fish. The weekday lunch plate special is a steal ($7–$9). And if you can't leave the island without it, Sombat's famous pad thai sauce is available to take home in jars.

    Very good in every way. Excellent chicken satay, Tom Yum soup, curry dishes. You will not be disappointed! The restaurant closes for one month late June - July.
