Super great food, slightly distracted staff.

We loved eating at Sheba. The food was delicious and the place was really cool. The staff was very nice, but they seemed more interested in something on their iPad than checking on us. Overall great experience though!

Went here today with friends after work. All of us were totally disappointed. We ordered a chicken, a lamb and a beef dish and a veggie lentil dish. It took them nearly 35 minutes to get the food to the table. The beef was just alright didn't have any flavour. The lamb was over cooked dry and chewy and now... More

I absolutely enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Sheba! I enjoy the fact that they carry a type of honey wine that is close to the homemade versions you find in Ethiopia. Great, great atmosphere with warm and sincere staff and the food is excellent. The location is convenient and easily accessible from downtown hotels. Another great reasonably priced Ethiopian...

This was part of a conference I attended in Toronto- the option to dine around the world. I chose Ethiopian and was given instructions to walk to Sheba. The restaurant is simple, but clean and comfortable. The waitress was very nice and attentive, bringing Ethiopian honey wine, beer and keeping our water glasses full. We split plates between four people... More

Pros: I came here for lunch on a Saturday with my boyfriend. The restaurant was not full but there were a few people there. I ordered the vegetarian sample platter and it was very good. Cons: The service was very slow. I accidentley left my scarf on the chair and came back that evening to see if it was there.... More

Very nice restaurant with very good Ethiopian food. This was my first time in an Ethiopian restaurant and I enjoyed very much the Injera and the fact that you eat without cutlery. The food was very tasty. My boyfriend and I went here for lunch with a coupon 25% off but we were forced to take one vegetarian and one... More

I have visited a number of other Ethiopian restaurants in Toronto. While many have very good food, Sheba is the one I go to most regularly. For those who want to taste a variety of dishes, the customizable veggie or veggie and meat platters are ideal, and offer a great introduction to Ethiopian cuisine for beginners. For those who want... More

The restaurant was simple; the service efficient - but at the end of the day the food was the weak link. It was bland; the meat very chewy and various sauces nondescript! The friendly staff could not mitigate this weakness.

The food was very tasty and flavorful; spicy, but not too hot... just right. My only negative comment is that the meat (beef) was a little tough. It didn't bother me much, but I would have given them a 5 if the meat was just a bit more tender.. at least I know they didn't use meat tenderizers. The bread... More
