Restaurant Review: Thai Thai Seafood in New Bern, NC

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of traveling to New Bern for my mother-in-law's birthday. We had lunch at Thai Thai Seafood Restaurant. They are located at 2405 Neuse Blvd., New Bern, NC. It's a very small place, but well worth the visit.

Do not be put off by the name, as they do have much more than just seafood there. During lunch time, they offer a buffet. There was one vegetable dish on the buffet that might have been vegan, but I went the safe (and more filling) route by ordering from their menu. If you go in for lunch and want to stick with a plant-based diet, ask for their dinner menu as they have a lot more to choose from there.

For my appetizer, I ordered the Tofu Tod (fried tofu with peanut sauce). I know George (age 3) will always have something to eat if I order tofu. If there is something to dip the tofu in, even better. This did not disappoint.

For my entrĂ©e, I ordered Pad Thai Vegetables (thin rice noodles, tofu, vegetables, and peanuts). I ate most of this, but gave Bridget and George all the broccoli they wanted and Liam enjoyed the peas (I love broccoli and peas but if my children want to eat them, they're more than welcome to... I love kids who eat their veggies!)

Because the kids were with us, we had to get a dessert. I've had this dessert at many Thai restaurants with the same result: delicious! It's sticky coconut rice with fresh mango. George was most interested in eating the sweet rice, Bridget opted only for the mango, and Liam ate anything he could get!

Here was my view of my very special dining partners. Bridget had a good time sitting next to Grandma and held on a good conversation. It took her awhile to start eating, as there are many pictures in the restaurant of their other dishes involving seafood, and Bridget was scared that I was trying to serve her something that had once been alive and well. I'd never do that to you, sweetpea!


George was his usual sweet and silly self, of course. Just give him his tofu and he'll be the most quiet and well-behaved child ever.


Liam knows good food. It was hard to feed him fast enough.

 
 
This is a great place to go if you're dining with your omnivore friends and family, as there is something that everyone would love. All of the food tastes very fresh and the owner is very nice and accommodating.
