I'm a big fan of Ethiopian cuisine and was not disappointed by the lovely food and friendly staff at Axum. Make sure to try their spicy beef dish, yum!

Our neighborhood back home is full of Ethiopian restaurants, and Axum matches up to the best of them. Simple and unpretentious, home cooking, with a charming hostess who came out to the street to coax us in. Lovely evening. Tasty spicy food.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
