I've been to almost ten Denver Ethiopian restaurants, and I'd give this one the top prize. If you don't have a reservation at a traditionally busy night, and even if you do, you might have to wait a while, but it's worth it.
My friend and I had heard great things about the food here. It seems to be a one amazing woman show. So give yourself plenty of time for the whole process- we saw people come in and then leave after about 15 minutes (who knows?...Maybe they were trying to make a movie). We gave ourselves no time limit and were there 2 hours. The meal was fantastic- we ate a little bit of everything. The lamb was my favorite- or maybe the chicken-or maybe the potatoes and carrots. I was so full, but I couldn’t stop. I had to use the traditional bread to try to finish off the sauces. The woman who does everything there was so kind and really seemed to care if we enjoyed our meals. Would definitely go back and stuff myself again. If you like Ethiopian cuisine- don’t miss this place. Be patient.More
This was my first trip to an Ethiopian restaurant! I had a nice time. Don't go if you are in a hurry. Expect to have a slow experience but that made it more relaxing and fun. Wasn't rushed through the meal at all! We ordered...and shared a platter. No silverware of course but I was surprised how many people did not wash their hands before eating! One of the meats was a little spicy for me but I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to heat. Overall, it was a fun unique dining experience.More
My wife and I were passing through Denver and wanted something besides the usual fare. Took a chance at lunchtime and we were completely won over! This was some of the best food! The cook/owner/waitress was personable and made us feel like family. The price...was reasonable and the lunch really capped off a great week on the way to the airport.
After a week of hiking in the mountains, all we wanted to talk about when we got back home was how awesome the food at Queen of Sheeba was!More
Love the experience of the Ethiopian cuisine, all served in a large platter to be shared by the table. The 4 of us shared a meat combo for 2 and a veggie combo for two. Everything on the tray was delicious!
The service is a...little slow - but just factor it in to your time frame.
Important tip: It is VERY important to have a reservation. The restaurant is small, so you will wait awhile if you don't. Also the very cute little old woman who runs the restaurant will scold you for a long time if you don't call her to let you know you are coming.
She is very nice, and fun to joke with a bit (if she isn't mad at you for not calling ahead). :)More
We ordered a few meals and they were quite good. However, the flavor and portion sizes were not as good as what we normally expect. The chef was lovely and the waiter was just OK. Given there are better Ethiopian restaurants in Denver, we will...not be back.More
This restaurant is in a small building with several other businesses, and the sign is worn off. Don't be scared! It was amazing. The owner is very pleasant and helpful, everything is home cooked from scratch. You do not get plates or utensils, you eat...with your hands and share (for those who haven't eaten Ethiopian before). Great flavors and spices and all extremely filling. The bread is a type of sourdough according to the owner - spongy texture great for soaking up sauces. The meal below was more than 2 could finish and came with drinks (soda) for $35. Probably best for couples/adults or with kids who are open to trying new cuisine.
We enjoyed this place immensely and will be back!More
Our party of 3 started a great meal with the delicious vegetarian sam bussas. We then enjoyed the Veggie combo, meat combo and lamb stew all served on one platter. Plenty of food for hefty appetites and fantastic flavor. Our server was very attentive and...pleasant. We ended the meal with the milk tea (a must!) and coffee. Overall a well rounded meal that everyone really enjoyed.More
Home in the wall places are always the best. The food is bet tasty. The owner super friendly. The place isn't the cleanest or fanciest but many of the guests were clearly returning and she knew then all.
