This restaurant has stepped up to the task of enduring their excellent menu works for takeout during the covid19 pandemic. I recommend choosing one of the combos (several options for different numbers of people). We’ve loved everything we’ve tried here including meat, fish and vegetable...options. This is a very vegetarian friendly place. Bold flavors, African spices, delicious across the board.More

Together with my vegan daughter we stopped for lunch. Typical Ethiopian good food, just be aware of the hot/spicy dishes, otherwise delicious food.

We experienced Ethiopian foods of such flavors unfamiliar to us. The lunch buffet gave us the opportunity to try nearly a dozen different items and we added lamb tibbs and chicken tibbs to the vegetarian buffet. Unique and savory seasonings made the entire experience a...delight. Can't wait to broaden our taste experiences next time.More

I have been eating Ethiopian food for years. I like to try different restaurants.I got the Kitfo and it was not what I expected. I have tasted better. But the sides were good.

I've had the veggie platter in lots of Ethiopian places, but yesterday there was something new that I don't remember seeing before: a lovely, spicy chickpea blend. Our server asked if we wanted to have that with our veg combo instead of 3 veg combos...for the table. What a great revelation! The hot spiced tea was great. Our server came back several times to ask if we wanted more of anything, including injera. We started out with just two tables full at noon, but it filled up well by 130pm. Nice little place, plenty of food (we had two containers of leftovers), lovely service.More

I was sad leaving LA and being so close to Little Ethiopia, but Queen Sheba doesn't disappoint! As with most Ethiopian restaurants, it is a simple restaurant, but the food is fantastic every single time. The servers are friendly. The service is fast. I always...enjoy an Ethiopian beer or wine with my dinner.More

Yes, I'm usually down for da tibbs, but some days I just need one of their delightful hibiscus iced teas or a fresh mango smoothie! If it's Ethiopian it's here!

I had dinner at this restaurant and ordered the vegetarian platter as the main course with an order for doro wat as a side (doro wat is a spicy chicken dish with boiled egg). The platter was served with cabbage, lentils - two types, salad,...greens and injera bread. The doro wat was not very spicy and since it was a side dish, there was only one drumstick and one boiled egg. I wish there were better platters to order with the meat dish being the main one and additions of vegetarian items. Service was okay, but not outstanding - there was a loud couple sitting next to me which did not help and drowned out the music that was playing. The vegetable dishes had not been prepared fresh (how long does it take to make cabbage?) and the injera bread was cold (not just room temperature but cold).More
