I was not took keen on returning to Elephant Walk after a very poor showing by their then manager (who was owner's son-in-law), but this was arranged by friends, so I went. Food was very good - servings were a trifle small, but then thats...More

We frequently have Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thai food, and were pleasantly surprised that the Cambodian food we had was quite different. We especially enjoyed the Somlah Machou, a traditional Khmer noodle soup, Crevettes Amrita, and the spicy trout, but all the dishes the three of...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...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!
