Fusion / Eclectic
For the past decade, Chef/Restaurateur Nui Kullanna has been serving the greater Phoenixville area the most authentic Thai cuisine around. From the moment Nui emigrated to Southeastern Pennsylvania from her home in Thailand she longed to find flavors resembling the ones she grew up enjoying, but with some style and elegance. After a few years the opportunity presented itself for Nui to grow this longing into a full fledged restaurant and Phoenixville gave birth to her vision, Thai L’elephant. Combining a higher level of service and a heightened dining experience, Nui took to the kitchen to craft some of the finest Thai cuisine to grace plates of diners, and her community took form around her for ten strong years.

Always great Thai food at Nui Nui. Love that it is a BYO. Food is the right amount of spicy. Serving team is flawless. Get into Phoenixville as parking can be scarce the later you wait.

My new favorite restaurant! The place is super cool inside and on the main strip of phoenixville. Food was absolutely incredible for a good price! Service was excellent as well even when they were at full capacity. Wide variety on the menu for people who may have food preferences like vegan/ vegetarian or allergies. Highly recommend Nui Nui and I will be coming back!

I thought the previous restaurant, Thai elephant, had better food but the remodel looks really great inside.

We recently made our first visit to Nui Nui Kitchen and were pleasantly surprised. The staff was pleasant and efficient. Our reserved table was by the side window, which was so nice. We could "people watch" folks as we dined. The food choices were pretty good; if I had just one critique, it would be to increase the number of menu selection. Everything was delicious and pleasant. We are planning our next visit.

They were absolutely accommodating to my seat request. And the food was second to none. Just enough check ins to keep our meal private but taken care of.

Dinner was very well executed.

We ordered spring roll and dumplings. They were fine.

I may have ordered something that was not exactly to my taste. I ordered duck with a tamarind sauce. Tamarind is a little too sour and I wish the sauce was a tad sweeter. The duck was cooked just right.

So my problem was that I ordered the wrong thing.

The bar isn’t open yet so it’s BYOB right now, but we were able to walk to the Foodery and pick something up. We enjoyed the food and great service. The new decor looks great!

We ate here often before the name change and it was one of our favorites! Still is! They have new items on the menu as well as many of the old favorites. Everything is delicious and we love trying some of the new food while still enjoying the old. They've updated the restaurant a bit, and it was just enough! If you haven't been - definitely give it a try!

We were early (5:30) and snagged a great window seat. The place is chic-cool with a few great asian-inspired wall murals and art. Service was impeccable with server recommendations on point. Appetizers of tuna tartare and Asian street fries were fresh and amazing. Entrees of Tamarind duck and shrimp dish were delicious. Desserts looked real awesome but we passed (trying to be good). Great byob in Phoenixville. Recommend!

Excellent dinner Sunday evening. Depth and complexity of flavors was exciting. Our server was lovely and attentive, but not obtrusive. Our first time back since the change from Thai Elephant and we will return many more times.

Second trip to Nui Nui, first for dinner, and the kitchen did not disappoint. Very creative dishes - everything is well executed and clearly done with a great deal of care. The softshell crab special with Penang Curry was exceptional. I also highly recommend the Duck Spring Rolls appetizer. One tip - while the long communal table in the back is stunningly beautiful, if that table fills up and your table is nearby, be prepared for an onslaught of noise. The lower ceiling also makes things warmer back there and casual conversation with one's dining partner becomes difficult if not impossible. Thankfully for us, the wait staff and hostess were very accomodating. The restaurant has a main area with a higher ceiling that is a bit more quiet but the "secret" is the third section of the restaurant - off to the left as you enter - very quiet, intimate and comfortable. We will be back!

This is not your regular Indian type food. This is food with a new twist on flavors and presentation. All items we ordered were prepared very well. Presentation done beautifully. The best part of our meal was our server. She answered all questions with full answers that helped us to order. Will go back.
