Very good Cambodian-French fusion restaurant. We ordered soup and five different entrees and all were very good. They offer good selection of beer. The ambience is quite nice too and service is fast and attentive.

Pretty good Cambodian-inspired food in Boston. We tried crispy port spring rolls, beet salad, short ribs, soba noodles, kimchi pork, and Khar Saiko. Nice flavors and ambiance but a sense of delight is missing.

Wonderful flavors. Well presented dishes. Relaxing atmosphere. Well worth a visit, even if you're unfamiliar with Cambodian cuisine.

Wow! Having lived for several months in Cambodia, I know my Cambodian food. And I miss it. But now, I can always fly to Boston and get an exquisite, spicy, and innovative meal. It has been three days since we ate there and I am still thinking about the food. I also found the art quite interesting.

One of my favorite restaurants in Boston but beware! Its not cheap! The off-street parking option can be a bit of a nightmare but you can get instructions from them on how to get valet parking if you call them in advance. The simla machou on this occasion was ordered in a big bowl but felt slightly watered down and... More

Exquisite Cambodian-French cuisine, great selection in the menu for food, wine and beer. Cambodian dishes full of flavor, and quite generous servings as well. Very nice, prepared and friendly staff.

Ambiance and service were excellent. The food was tasty but portions were small, especially for the high price. There is limited street parking.

August 23, 2016 This restaurant has excellent and innovative cambodian-french inspired food with a great menu. The appeal of this place is the food which was interesting.

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.
