Westword's Description

Just as Axum is a very important city in the history of Ethiopia, Axum Restaurant is very important to the Ethiopian expats who call Denver home. The focus here is on authenticity, with a menu of traditional African preparations of meat and veggies typically served atop Ethiopian injera (flatbread) and without utensils. A meal here is a shared, familial experience, one that takes you far away from East Colfax -- exotic as that stretch of road might be. Come later in the evening and you'll be even more out of your element: Axum becomes something of a dance party for the Ethiopian community once the sun sets. You have to see it (and feel it, and taste it) to believe it.

    Great food. Though the AC was non-existent.

    Axum Special Tibs with Lamb. Epic. Get it.
