I thought the food to be interesting and reasonably priced. Service was friendly and personal. I assume most people know that cutlery is not provided with Ethiopian meals unless requested. Our group of four eventually requested forks; just made it easier. Good variety, nicely spiced...More

The shopping center is not replacing light bulbs in the sign, so it reads "Queen of". I know that is a small thing, but it concerned me. However, the food was spectacular. I knew about the cuisine, and this place is on it in terms...More

Don't know why Trip Advisor notes that this restaurant is closed. It is definitely open. My wife and I had a very satisfying dinner here earlier this week. Service was courteous and knowledgeable and food was delicious and distinctly different. We will return to explore...More

I've been eating Ethiopian food for over 30 years, and Queen of Sheba's is the best I've had. The Doro Wat and Lamb Tibs were outstanding. Excellent vegetables. Very good honey soft drink. Service is fast, food was ready quickly. The injera was just right....More

The quality of food is OK and the quantity is miserly for the $$ they charge. Also, the service is pretty slow and they messed up our order ! We won't go to this restaurant again.

We go here quite often, and the food is just superlative. Having traveled extensively in Africa, I can assure you that the food is completely authentic. Absolutely delicious! They can prepare a completely vegan meal for you, they can serve meat, they can adjust spice...More

This restaurant is in a strip mall, so it's not as plush or exotic as I expected from the pictures on the web site. My husband and I chose to sit at a mesob, the traditional Ethiopian basket table. At other Ethiopian restaurants, the mesob...More
