Cambodian
The Elephant Walk serves Award-Winning Cambodian and French cuisine with extensive vegetarian and gluten-free selections. 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 (but use fresh rather than dried spices). Our Cambodian and French selections encompass both traditional and original dishes created by our Chef Nadsa de Monteiro, who was raised in Phnom Penh speaking both Cambodian and French and subsequently lived in France for many years. Our Cambodian-and-French theme is an authentic reflection of our roots!

    Always a pleasure to dine here. Warm welcome, attentive service, beautifully presented and tastefully prepared dinners are the norm. Nearby on street parking is another asset. The beer and wine selections are diverse and outstanding. Whichever side of the menu one chooses, French or Cambodian, the dishes are consistently pleasing.

    Quiet Wednesday night business dinner, the food, drink and service was great - would consider going again as the mix of French and Cambodian dishes was hard to choose from, so will go back!

    We went for my friends birthday. The food was scrumptious and we were able to get dishes that were both gluten free and lactose free.

    Service was great, food quality was amazing. Our server made the best recommendations. Our drinks were heavy handed- always a plus in my book- ambiance was nice, not to loud. My husband and I moved to FL 7 years and visit the elephant walk every year, whenever we are back in town. A great date night dinner spot.

    Food was good, our waiter/bartender was great. In the other hand the hostess/ waiter sitting people last night was extremely rude. It is unfortunate since the food was good but we are not coming back. The place wasn’t even full or busy for the waiter to be stressed out and thus lashing out on us.

    As someone with celiac and who eats vegan, the server was able to help me find a fantastic dish that suited my dietary needs. The food was delicious, and I did not get sick, which is always appreciated. I will be going back again and again.

    I can’t believe it took us so long to come back to The Elephant Walk. The rouleaux and the nataing were better than we remembered — savory and sweet with that crispy rice that was light and perfect for dipping. They also featured an amazing roasted duck l’orange with a poached pear that was perfectly balanced in flavor and sweetness and texture. It’s the best duck dish in the entire city, hands down. The wait staff were warm and attentive without losing efficiency. Do not miss out on the purple panda cocktail. We’re looking forward to our next visit.

    Here visiting Boston; always seeking Khmer food when I travel. After dining at Elephant Walk, felt like home. The food was amazingly tasteful and has that Khmer flare. Although the owner is not Cambodian, they kept the magic alive. Drinks and desserts is to die for. Definitely dine here again :)

    The food was very good. The rouleaux spring rolls were perfect. Loc lac was very tender and delicious. Great coconut and squash dessert. Like all other restaurants, they are clearly understaffed. We will definitely return in the future.

    Distinctive and creative taste. I ate at Elephant Walk over a decade ago and never forgot it. This time it is even better food and cocktails are fantastic too. I can’t wait to come back in town. I have never found a place like it. Our server was delightful and loved the place and shared his enthusiasm with us. Be sure to try the Purple Panda if you like a sweet fun cocktail.

    My husband picked this restaurant for his birthday dinner. The food was amazing and so were the cocktails. If I lived closer it would quickly become my go to place for an evening drink! Service was excellent despite a crowded Saturday night but the crowded Saturday night also meant a very high noise level and a wait for the bathrooms. We will definitely go back for another special occasions but will schedule it on a week night if possible. If not, well, everything was supposed good that it was worth the noise.

    This place is fabulous. Lots of variety with unique selections. The wine selections were great. I was allowed to taste before deciding which was a plus. My dinner was divine start to finish and wine suggestions were perfect. Wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable staff . If I could, I would give more than five stars.

    Food was fantastic. Service was great. Only heads-up is that if you have an earlier reservation you should be prepared to be advised that you are on somewhat of a time restriction. But we’d definitely go back but would plan ahead and make a slightly later reservation.
