I know. I know. One is suppose to eat seafood in Boston and there is no shortage of excellent places to do that. But Elephant Walk well, it's just really good and unless you are Cambodian, probably different than anything else you've eaten lately. It's an unusual blend of flavors, think pan-Asian crossed with French. Very flavorful, not spicey. Lots... More

I travel to Boston regularly and consider myself a foodie. I have many friends and clients in Boston. I can't believe it took me 3+ years of travel to find out about this wonderful establishment. What a terrific find in Beantown. This restaurant has been going strong for 16-17 years. So, it is not really a well-kept secret. Our meal... More

I've been to Cambodia, I can say that the food at the Elephant Walk does remind to the food I had in that beautiful country.

While Elephant walk does have French food, we only tried the Cambodian, which was pretty average and disappointing considering the price we paid. Service was good, nice environment, good wine but average food.

Elephant Walk is my favorite restaurant in Boston. Every time we visit the city, it's the place I want to keep returning to - especially in the summer when the citrus and avocado soup is on the menu. They always have an abundance of vegetarian and vegan options, which means it's a great place to take a group. The wait... More

Been to the restaurant several times in the past 4 years, never had a meal I did not like. My group ordered different dishes to share, they were so good nobody wanted to share their dishes.

Perhaps the best service I've ever had at a restaurant. So many vegan options to choose from on the menu -- so little time. I would have liked to come back again, but our trip was short. Great ambience, too. The spring rolls and Cambodian salad were delicious.

My university had an alumni night at this restaurant. I enjoyed both my starter and the entree. The Crêpe au Canard et Champignons is very tasty. I also loved the Pavé de Saumon de Norvège. Even the leftover salmon tasted wonderful the next day. And if you are a mashed potato lover theirs is one of the best. Hope this... More
