I would recommend the short rib braised beef with Shanghai noodle, really enjoyed the source. Their duck starter is also very delicious, worth a try!

Great atmosphere, super friendly staff, amazing food, for vegetarians and meat eaters a like. The owner runs his restaurant with great pride which is evident from all the wonderful experiences we've had here. And the crispy tuna is the best.

The menu was wonderful and varied. They had a Prix Fix menu going for $33. I had a wonderful Cambodian salad, a spicy pork stew and a fruit marange for dessert. All delicious and a good value. Their wine list was very complete, but I truly enjoyed their draft beer selection. Easy to walk to from our hotel near Copley... More

Great fusion food, the Simla machou is to die for. Good selection of wine. Great ambience. Parking at the back. Good for almost any kind of gathering.

Creative menu, excellent craft cocktails. We had the Rouleaux Khmeres, Loc Lac, and Canard poele. All amazing. A must if you’re looking for something different.

We were visiting friends in Boston in mid-June and had a fantastic dining experience at the Elephant Walk! The food, a fusion of Cambodian (similar to Thai) and French cuisine was delicious and perfectly prepared! We started with the rouleaux de ton cru (spring rolls with raw tuna & avocado), and for our main had seared tuna rolls encrusted with... More

My wife and I were in Boston just for the evening. I had made reservation based on the reviews. Both my wife and I are vegetarian, the restaurant had very good options for us and very tasty. Enjoyed our evening.

Had a great meal here at lunch. Very quiet and nice, very good food, particularly nice atmosphere: I enjoyed the whole experience. I was able to find several gluten free options (am coeliac). Felt a bit shy because the soup I had ordered wasn't at all enough to fill me up, as the waiter had previously suggested it would. But... More

Had dinner here before a Sox game; not super-close to Fenway (about a 30 minute walk). Sat at a gorgeous table near the open front. We ordered a lot. It's nice that most entrees come with the option of ordering a small plate (which really wasn't that small) so you could try a lot of things. Everything was delicious. Service... More

Description
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!

Staying in Fenway / Kenmore

Neighborhood Profile
Fenway / Kenmore
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
