Terrible Cold Damp Matter Sold as Food

The worst food I ever seen or eaten in my life. The bread was damp and cold and unlike anything I have ever seen before. The taste was not good. The appetizer was good. The entree was spicy beef in a small bit of pastry. The entrees were cold and very unappealing to the eye. The flavor was... read more

Very welcoming even with three kids with us. Ages 5-11. The food was great. The kids thought it was fun "digging in" with their hands and still remember this food adventure. This was a few years back, but TripAdvisor doesn't let me go back more than a year.

This was my 4th time at Queen of Sheba in the Flour Mill. All 4 times the food has been top quality, consistent and down right tasty. It's such a fun experience eating with your hands and the spices and flavors are amazing. This restaurant is wonderful and worth a visit. Also try the hot spiced Ethiopian tea. It's spicy... More

the food was old and heated up, the setting is cold and un-welcoming--we like good food from all over the world and from other cultures, but this was not worth stopping at or giving it any of your time or money

I had never had Ethiopian food so my wife and I decided to give it a try. It was really fun learning about another culture. They brought out a large bowl with this spongy bread-like stuff and then dumped our entrees into it. I wish I remembered what the bread was called but you tear pieces of it off and... More

Inside the historic Flour Mill, this restaurant serves great Ethiopian food fast and friendly. Food is eaten without silverware unless request. I've been in many countries where this is the norm and am comfortable with it. Get out of your comfort zones! Try it!!! Drink order was taken and menu promptly supplied. Service was friendly. Besides the waiter, the presumed... More

I went with my family and a great time was had by all. The wonder explained everything on the menu and we had a great time eating with our hands and trying delicious Ethiopian food.

Oh, my goodness. The owner is a wonderful lady and greets you with a smile. The food is amazing and we have tasted most things on the menu. The atmosphere in the Flour Mill is great!

We were welcomed as a new guest and provided great recommendations on the menu. The owner shared the description of teff, a unique grain found in Ethopia and difficult to procure in the U.S. Nevertheless, we tried several vegetarian dishes on the lunch menu and a meat dish as well. We were filled and had enough left overs to complement... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner that was recommended to us. The owner is from Ethiopia and a very sweet lady. Her daughter was our waitress, she was a wonderful server. The food was delicious. It's a community style of dining. Your order comes on a big platter and everyone at your table shares. No utensils either which... More
