Great little restaurant, the lunch special is an amazing value - my only regret is we didn't try them our first day in Hilo (still went twice!) friendly, competent, fast staff, great food, and for Hawaii an amazing value at lunch (only went at lunch) - parking is tolerable, especially for Hilo. Portions were generous. They even brought a sippy cup for our 6-month-old without asking for one.

My boyfriend and I ate here a couple of weeks ago simply because we love Thai food and trying out the restaurants near us. We would definitely come here again! It's hard for me now to describe the exact flavor besides being fresh and delicious. Service is friendly. The atmosphere is cute and comfy. We ate outside. Be aware of Thai spiciness levels. Even medium is a nice kick.

The food was great, service quick and attentive, and they were very baby friendly, with sippy cups and trays for our 1 year old, as well as very tolerant of the huge mess he left behind!

We were actually going to nearby restaurant, but left as the prices were high and the menu was mundane. That's when we spotted Sombat's Fresh Thai Cuisine. The atmosphere was casual, relaxed and a vase of fresh flowers on the table. The food was fantastic -- fresh, organic, and just-right spicy. The plates were piled high and the prices were very reasonable. Service was excellent. We left fat and happy.

We were in Hilo, Hawaii looking for a good Thai restaurant. We researched one on Trip Advisor and found Sombats. As always Trip Advisor was the best source of advice.
