Super friendly staff. The online ordering through YP made ordering very simple. After going to pick up the food I as a little disappointed we were not eating in. The atmosphere looked great. We got the food home and loved the taste. We would definitely order again.

I recently had the opportunity to attend an event catered by the friendly folks at Axum. This was my first foray into Ethiopian cuisine and I am happy to say that it will not be my last. The variety of dishes was outstanding as was the flavour and aroma. For the vegetarians out there, you will NOT be disappointed. More... More

We had dinner after a long day. Just delicious. Tender meat. Perfectly spiced veggies. Smiling service. Reasonable price. And there was live music. My son played African drum in accompaniment.

Six of us came for lunch, we ordered the vegetarian platter, lamb and fish. We all shared and ate with our hands. We all enjoyed everything. Cool experience.

We ordered 4 vegetarian dishes, chicken and beef - and they were so plentiful we had enough for 6 more people to eat the next day! This place is tiny, and it would appear only the locals know about it. It's in a strip mall, beside a car oil and lube place, so easy to dismiss - BIG MISTAKE! Staff... More

If only I've been to other Ethiopian ones to compare to but so far, pretty impressed with overall atmosphere, decor, value and of course, the food. Have driven by here hundreds of times by Hastings, trying to beat that red light at Clark, but I digress, located right at the intersection. Asked the owner for their signature dish, it's their...

You won't regret the amazing veggie/vegan choices here. Delicious injera, and if you call a day ahead they can make you a full teff traditional one. They use millet and both breads are perfect. Miser Wot and Atikilt Wot, excellent, But make sure you get the Inguday Tibs (mushrooms!)
