The setting is warm and cozy and the service friendly and helpful. In good weather you can sit outside and have a beer while your diner is served. The food is very well prepared, a pleasure to eat with your fingers. Great place to get introduced to ethiopian cuisine. Unexpensive.

We have tried several Ethiopian restaurants in Amsterdam and Queen of Sheba is by far the best. The food is prepared fresh, portions are large and if I am not mistaken it's all ecological as well. Try out the beers with a fruity taste. Delicious. Try the beef tomato dish. It's very good. Take your time and good company as... More

Nice family owned restaurant with great food. Sorry to see that we were the only ones there. They were so nice and stayed open late just for us. I hope that more people will find this place. Be prepared to eat with your fingers

Restaurant is rather small and cozy, off the regular tourist trails. I had the best ethiopian food there, but preparation took too long.

I went here with my mother and husband. The restaurant was very warm and welcoming and the service was first class. The three of us shared a meet mix and a veggie mix which was plenty of food - and oh my was it delicious! No wonder this place is TripAdvisor reccomended!

The location is not in the main tourist area, but it's worth eating there. The food was excellent, although we had to wait a little. We'd definitely recommend this restaurant

This restaurant is a little way off the main tourist areas but worth the trip. The food is made with love and it shows. It is flavorsome, well spiced and the injera was good. If you're in a hurry look elsewhere (the service is a little slow), if you in a big group and looking for a good night out... More
