Something different & good

We had a group of retired teachers eat here the other day. Expensive food with good service without silverware of course. The Talapia was tender and fresh. Some of the teachers had some more spicier dishes, however, it was a hit with of members of the party. The ambiance was lacking a bit but the food made up for it.... More

We always enjoy trying new Ethiopian restaurants, comparing them to the 'real deal' we experienced during our times in Ethiopia. At the Queen of Sheba there is an extensive menu so we were quite eager to try. We had the appetizer sampler, which is a very good value. The sambussa and kosta were excellent. For our meal we had lega... More

I've always loved this place. The flavors have nuance and depth. Service is friendly and the injera bread is what you'll dream about until your next visit.

A nice inexpensive meal. Got the veggie sampler which came with some delicious lentils. Also the cabbage in tomato sauce is delicious! And the fresh side salads are yummy!

Always good to be back home from traveling, especially when home has so many incredible ethnic restaurants. Queen of Sheba has been on my favorite list since they were a tiny hole in the wall in a run down hotel on Bardstown Road many years ago. My absolute favorite meal is the meat and vegetable combination dinner. A sampling of... More

We've been dining here for years and often take friends and Family for an introduction to Ethiopian cuisine. The owners /chefs prepare all meals and we've never had a disappointment. Guests dining with us enter fretful and leave delighted. This would be a great place to take vegetarians but meat eaters will not be disappointed. If uncertain ask the service... More

I absolutely adore Ethiopian cuisine! Had it ten major cities in the American lower 48... and nothing touches this place. Served up family platter style, their lentils are my favorite, but nothing on the menu is bad. However, take caution, as this is not exactly the best, well-kept secret in town...and they get extremely busys nights, and especially weekend nights.... More

This is such a cute little nook to go to. The steak and potatoes person should NOT go here. If you like to explore the untrodden with your palate, you will be amazed at the flavors you enjoy here. These folks really know how to make food go into orbit.
