For a very small restaurant, they have an extensive menu. I had the pad Thai with tofu and my wife had a stir fry both were very good. It’s easy to see why they have received so many awards.

Have ate here in the past but this trip was disappointing. Ordered the pineapple curry, mild with chicken hoping to enjoy a unique curry flavor. Bummer. Was not impressed with flavor and there was zero spice instead of mild. Was a large portion that included rice. As most Thai restaurants once they drop the food the next time they stop by is to hand you the bill.

Travelled all the way here from Kona for lunch & place was closed. Owner was there & said she’s tried numerous times to have you update their hours. Trip Advisor please update the hours open for this place.

I was here last week visiting the area and I know there is good Thai food here! This one was close to my hotel and it didn't disappoint! The spices were great and I left a huge fan!

I’ve tried all the Thai restaurants on Hawaii island and dozens in Honolulu and around the islands. Each is very different. They all make Pad Thai and Beef Salad and none taste alike. Sombat is a genius with spices. Try her Coco soup, her Beef Salad, actually try anything she makes and you’ll see. The flavors will take you on a culinary trip that continues long after you swallow. For a taste sensation, try her Cashew Chicken. The sauce should be a controlled substance. If you are in Hilo and you miss a chance to try Sombat’s cooking, you’ll just have to come back another time. It’s a must try.
