So let me begin this review with this; YOU MUST EAT HERE! I have been to this restaurant at least 5 times now, and I have been stunned by how good the food is every single time. The food has wonderful spices that I personally have never tasted before. The food is fulfilling, savory, and makes you wish you had a larger stomach so you could eat more. The service here is also quite phenomenal. The time you order and get to eat is relatively short, and when you see how much food you get, you are left in awe with how they could make so much food in such a short amount of time. The presentation of the food is outstanding too. The first time I came here, I was with my mom. We ordered the Vegetarian Combo Plate. When the food came out, it was in this beautiful, colorful straw basket. The waiter took the lid of the basket off and both the aroma and steam of the freshly made food rolled across my face. Overall, this restaurant is probably the best restaurant I have been into in a while. It has amazing food, great service, and great vibes. Please go to this restaurant and experience it for yourself! You will not regret it!

I have been here several times and EVERY time it is delicious! I stumbled across it exploring the flour mill stores and decided to try it. I am vegan with food sensitivities, so careful of what I eat. I have NEVER had any reactions to the foods or spices! (Ordered gluten free) And so very very yummy! I decided to look into Ethiopian in Seattle area while I was there...the places there were not clean and had bars on the windows...did not even stay to order. Queen of Sheba is very clean and classy. I am also a Christian and am very thankful there is no "weird" music or atmosphere. Just very relaxing and enjoyable. I've also met the owner and she has a wonderful personality...very caring. Praise God for such a special place to treat myself and others once in awhile! Blessings to the owners and staff!

I lived in Ethiopia for 2 years. This is the real deal. Have had many dishes and have loved them all. Anytime I go through Spokane I bring at least a week of food back to Montana as no place like it here. Owner has true Ethiopian hospitality.

This was only my 2nd experience with an ethiopian restaurant, but it greatly paled in comparison to my first. We ordered 3 entrees to share on a single injera bread (typical style). The food was tasty, but the portion sizes were very small and the prices were quite high.

The owner of the restaurant seemed to just chew her workers out for any thing she could think of while they are running around the restaurant for her. The food felt like it sat in a warmer for hours and very expensive. The owner kinda just blew off a customer concern and said “I’m in the kitchen cooking that’s how it comes”. Overall disappointing watching the owner act like that…

A great find for us as we were searching for a place to get a snack with some veggie options. I really enjoyed what we had which was quite different - fried chick peas were amazingly good ! Great service too.

We love this restaurant. The food is unusual (for us) and delicious. There are many vegetarian options. The owner is extremely personable and kind.

We called ahead, had our table ready, and everyone was helpful and accommodating as we cleaned up prior to eating.

Owner/chef is lovely. We really enjoyed every bite of food. There were four of us, so we ordered 3 dishes (which comes with the tej bread), plus a beef sambusek appetizer, and it was the perfect amount.

This visit my family ordered the #18, Combination Plate, which they say serves 2, but in our case, easily fed 3 people. The Combination Plate combes with 3 meat entrees and one small veggie. It comes with Doro We't; Yesiga We't; Minchetebesh; and Tatakilt Alicha. The Doro We't is a traditional dish which consists of small chicken drumsticks, simmered in a thick spicy berbere stew with garlic, ginger, cardamom, onions, clarified butter, then topped with the traditional hard boiled egg. I absolutely LOVE this dish. The Yesiga We't is diced lean beef, slow cooked in a hot berbere stew with onions, garlic, tomato sauce, ginger, clarified butter and exotic Ethiopian spices. It also is delicious, and the sauce is very similar to the Doro We't. The Minchetabesh is lean ground beef, cooked in ginger, garlic, tumeric, onions and cardamom. The Yatakilt Alicha is potatoes, carrots, cabbage delicately sauteed with ginger, garlic, onions and tumeric. It's very good. All were enjoyed thoroughly with the traditional Ethiopian bread to pick up the entrees and eat them. The bread is very light, seems like it's a big pan cake, but it holds together well enough to sop up the entrees. My daughter had the lemonade. My wife had the Ethiopian Spiced Tea which she enjoyed. The owner gave us an order of Baklava to go. I love this little restaurant, and am sure to return. Ethiopian cuisine is so unique. The flavors are just so different than other food we eat in the West. The blending of spices is just amazing. If you haven't tried Ethiopian, then you are missing out. I'll admit, eating with my hands is not the norm for me, and my family, but it's part of their culture, and it's part of the experience. Enjoy!

Another reviewer below summed up our experience almost exactly. If you are not a group of 4 or more, you will not be given a table inside the restaurant. Even though most of the tables were empty and not reserved, we were only allowed to eat at a small table in the busy mall hallway. It was like paying for a pricey meal and sitting in a fast food courtyard while the cute African themed restaurant we had hoped to experience stood empty. Our bill for 2 was over $60, and even though the food is very good, we walked away feeling very disappointed with the experience. I hope this policy changes in the future because it comes off as really poor customer service.

Enjoyed this place and it’s perky owner . The food was good and the portions for the main courses were good size. We had so much food ! You might want to share a meal. Loved the way things are served on a large common plate and there is plenty of bread to dip with. ( You eat with the spongy brown bread instead of silverware ) If you haven’t tried Ethiopian food you need to try this fun dinning experience.
