Respond to Review of Sombat's Fresh Thai Cuisine
by John Kevin
Review: Skip popular Ken's House of Pancakes, and visit Sombat's (right behind Ken's) instead! So glad I found Sombat's (from happycow)during my week in Hilo. The vegetable curry and the hot mamaki tea were excellent. My server explained mamaki to me and even took me to the little garden to show me a mamaki tree on premises. The owner visited my table and told me she used to be vegan, and fully understood and answered my questions about the menu. One night during my stay, I tried the cold beanthread noodles -- also very good -- and it was such a large portion I had leftovers (nominal charge for take-out container, but it's Hawaii!).
