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

I try Ethiopian restaurants in cities all over the world. Sheba of Toronto managed to top the list for flavor. The service and location were also great. They have indoor and outdoor seating. This is as good as it gets.

Sheba is located close to Kensington where there is a pedestrian street with lots of interesting restaurants and shops. The food is of excellent quality and well priced for the downtown area. we tried the vegetarian platter which had about 5 veggie dishes served on a bed of injera. be prepared to eat with your hands as no cutlery is...

Whenever I am in TO I visit an Ethiopian restaurant, as i love the food but sadly there are none in Birmingham UK so far. Sheba is located at College and Bathurst so not too far from the city centre and near other places of interest like Kensington Market etc. You need to be ready for communal informal dining as...
