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

The service was friendly, fast and knowledgeable. The lunch special was great, though I would've preferred less injera and more filling. An excellent value. The spicy dishes (with five pepper logos) were not really that spicy, but everything was flavorful and tasty. The dishes could have been served at a hotter temperature. The decor was pleasant and I liked the... More

My wife and I went here because it was recommended to us. The place is located in a historical flour mill, and is set up like a restaurant from Ethiopia. You can dine in the traditional Ethiopian side, or eat at tables. The food is brought out on a large platter, and everyone eats off of it. You do not... More

The atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable. The food was fantastic! We ordered the veg and the meat platters and there was certainly enough for four to eat "family style." If in the area again, this will be a must stop!

This is the second Ethiopian place i have eaten this past year. I really love the atmosphere of the Flour Mill. The food was fantastic!! We brought friends who had never eaten without utensils. They loved it! Out favorite was Tibs W'et and it was great! I cant wait to bring the kids there. My only complaint was there was... More

Perhaps we ordered wrong thing. But the lamb with tumeric and onion in small bowl with spongy teff-barley pancakes seemed overpriced. No utensils other than serving spoon. Supposed to put drippy butter lamb chunks in pancake to eat...and the grease ends up all over your hand. Finally server returned and requested a fork. No veggie side or salad. First experience...

I was extremely disappointed in this restaurant. The food was all mush, and they did not give us plates or utensils. Very awkward. Then adding insult to injury, even though we had made reservations and the restaurant was far from busy, they sat us is the hall where we had no privacy at all. Terrible. I will never go there...

Wow, so glad we stumbled upon this cozy little restaurant in the Old Flour Mill! We came in expecting to buy cheese at a next door shop, but the enticing aromas drew us in to investigate. Be prepared to have not only a delicious culinary array of menu options, including beef, chicken, lamb, and vegetarian, but also a fun dining... More

Queen of Sheba serves great traditional Ethiopian cuisine. You find no eating utensils on the table since everything is eaten by hand. So if you don't want to gross the rest of your party out you should make sure your nails and hands are clean...as well as the rest of you group. The lamb dishes are fantastic. It is a... More

I love this little place. The food is great and you feel like you've been invited into the owner's home. My husband and I have done the coffee ceremony a few times and she goes through the whole roasting, grinding and brewing process right in front of you. She invites you into the cultural experience with a smile and makes... More
