The first syllable `cui’ is pronounced like the `qui’ in `quit’, `quiz’, and `quick’. The `s’ that follows is like the `z’ in `zip’ and `zoo’; and the final `ine’ is like the `een’ in `seen’, `teen’, and `keen’. The main stress is on the second syllable.
The word comes from French and is mostly used to talk about a particular style of cooking – the way in which an item is prepared. When you refer to the cuisine of a restaurant, you are talking about the different varieties of food served there.
Example: The new restaurant on M.G Road offers excellent traditional Thai cuisine.
