Our first night in Hilo we walked to Sombats and waited in line for awhile. Good sign! The place was very busy but well worth the wait. My wife had an eggplant dish that was definately the best example of Thai food I've ever had! I love Thai food so I've had my fair share. I had Basil Thai beef and it was very good. We decided that we would return again it was that good. Two days later I ordered the same eggplant dish and was so dissappointed! I think it may have been a different chef or they overdid it on the salt, not good. My wife tried it and agreed that it wasn't the same. oh well. I don't know what happened but it probably was just a fluke. The place always had a line out the door and the prices are fair for Hawaii. Aside from that second night salt bomb I'd go back. I had enjoyed some of the best Thai food ever.
