This is an interesting restaurant located inside the Flour Mill building. It is run by a very personable Ethiopian woman eager to see that you have a pleasant experience. Food is served on one large round tray but be careful what you order, some of the food are spicy which my wife loves but I prefer to stay away from.... More

I have wanted to try this place for a long time. Unfortunately they have very shady business practices. They tried to over charge us by $20! We ordered a small side of vegies to go with our meal at $5 and were charged $20. We specifically ordered the small side and even pointed at what we wanted on the menu.... More

Visited this joint on August 7th 2016 and had the most delicious dish, we all shared from the same platter digging in with our hands. We loved the atmosphere, felt at home - Asante sana

Because of my love for Ethiopia and it's food, I drove the 2.5 hours to meet a friend for dinner st Queen of Sheba and it totally exceeded my expectations! A lot of times when you eat food in the US that is from another country, it doesn't compare, but this took me back to my stay in Addis Ababa... More

Amazing food at an excellent price. Great variety of vegetarian and vegan-friendly dishes. This was the highlight of my trip to Spokane. My dinner partner literally had dreams about this place many nights later. A must for ethnic food lovers while in Spokane. Service was quick and portions were ample.

We have been frequenting Queen of Sheba for many years, and it is our go-to restaurant. Food is served family style on Injera, a flat, sponge-like bread that is rolled out like a pancake. Dishes are served on top of the injera, and then guests pinch off a bit of the bread to use to as a utensil to eat... More

Just...WOW. This little restaurant is located in the Flour Mill Mall on the main level, and is a must-stop for those looking for a savory meal. This would be a great place for first-timers as well. The atmosphere is great! The walls are lined with bamboo, and each table has a Mancala set for you to play while waiting for... More

We decided to try this restaurant based on a recommendation. It blew our expectations out of the water. The food is so flavorful and everything down to the coffee is house-made. The staff were all so friendly and fun to talk to, they made it feel like a family event. If you are in Spokane and like to try new... More
