We held our small old-timers' reunion at Elephant Walk, which was a local neighborhood spot for one of our group. The place was quiet on a Monday afternoon, past peak lunch hour. MY friends ordered Salade Cambodgienne and I ordered the Khar Saiko Kroeung (short ribs). My dish was delicious and the others reported positively on theirs. Two of us... More

I can't rate this place highly enough. A great restaurant with an unusual and interesting story behind it. The menu is fantastic, with plenty of interesting choices between Cambodian and French cuisine, all prepared and delivered to an exceptionally high standard. The food is authentic, prepared to recipe's of the owners and their ancestors; they even do cooking classes based... More

Returned here after a long time and was happy to see the variety of quality food was unchanged. Our appetizer of spring rolls, bean sprouts, romain with peanut/oil sauce was a nice combination of flavor and texture. The rare, pan-seared, encrusted tuna (pictured) with two sauces accompanied with scallion raviolis was as delicious as it was unique in presentation. They... More

Parking is terrible, and its better to take the bus or the T to get there. Food is a bit overpriced, and I've had better Indian food in Salem, Waltham, and other parts of Cambridge. Its an institution, and its a very clean and nice restaurant. The menu is not as diverse as I'm seen in other places, but the... More

Monday evening dinner w/ friends from Annapolis, MD who are accompanying us on this segment of our three-week vacation from the Annapolis/Baltimore/Washington, D.C. metro area to several parts of New England. The menu... More

We came here for dinner recently and it was a nice romantic place. Parking was easy and we were quickly seated at a table. The item that impressed us the most from this place was the Nataing appetizer. While we were not a fan of the crispy rice it came with, the ground pork and sauce paired really well with... More

Went for lunch during Dine Out Boston week. Although service was slow, the food did not disappoint. Spring rolls were crispy and delicious! Our waitress suggested we roll the roll in the accompanying lettuce, basil, mint and sprouts. Very interesting! We split the spicy pork stir fry (delicious) and shrimp with lemongrass and veggies (tasty). Dessert-banana pudding in coconut milk... More

We just finished celebrating our 50th anniversary at Elephant Walk. The event staff and the chef/owner were easy to work with. They met us at the restaurant, answered questions over the phone or by e-mail and were very welcoming. They gave us a menu with 5 choices for the main course, and offered to talk with any guest who had... More

Description
The Elephant Walk serves Award-Winning Cambodian and French cuisine. We also feature strong VEGETARIAN and GLUTEN-FREE menus! With so much depth and breadth to our menus, both exotic and familiar, we have something for just about everyone. Cambodian cooking is beautiful and delicious, but still rare in America. Less hot and sweet than Thai, richer and more complex than Vietnamese, the complex spice pastes that are the foundation of many Cambodian dishes reflect Cambodia’s Indian ancestry. Our Cambodian menu features both traditional Cambodian dishes and originals created by our Chef/Owners Longteine and Nadsa de Monteiro, a Cambodian mother-daughter team born and raised in Phnom Penh. Why French too? Cambodia was a French colony for a century, ending in the 1950s. Consequently, our chef-owners were French-educated and grew up speaking French and enjoying French cuisine too. In other words, our Cambodian-and-French theme is an authentic reflection of…us!
