Most Delicious Flavors, Best Host

I have been many times, and I always return for the fresh, delicious flavors. My favorite is the shared vegetarian platter. The injera (flat bread) is fantastic. The lamb cutlets are the best I have tasted.

This was my first experience with Ethiopian cuisine, and I must say, I do not know why I waited so long! We had the meat combination plate which featured chicken, beef, and lamb prepared in different ways. It was definitely refreshing and different to eat everything with your hands so I would highly recommend this place for a first date.... More

My husband and I had a most delicious lunch at Queen of Sheba. The food was excellent and most delicious. The service was not only friendly but also professional; we were treated as very special guests. I highly recommend this restaurant; and if you have never tried an Ethiopian restaurant, you are in for a real treat.

I'll start off by saying I love food with lots of flavor. I transitioned to being a vegetarian about four years ago, and dreaded it because I knew I didn't want to eat salads every day for every meal. I work in the Flour Mill and I order the vegetarian lunch special every day. People think you only get protein... More

I've wanted to try Ethiopian for a while and finally found someone willing to indulge with me. The food was good, but be prepared to eat with your hands as the authentic bread plate doesn't necessarily keep your pinchers clean. Will go back!

My wife spent a year in Ethiopia and we go to Ethiopian all the time. This is the best Ethiopian food I have ever had! We introduced a number of people to this wonderful food while we've been here. Try the vegetarian platter its a great way to get a mix of wonderful options if you are not yet familiar... More

This is a small, tidy restaurant in the Flour Mill. The food was quite delicious with great flavors. We ordered the vegetarian sampler for two with a couple of extra sides. Everything was fresh. The injera was plentiful and the spiced tea was refreshing. The staff was very friendly and came by our table several times to make sure we... More

Driving across country and had no idea what to have. Stumbled on this place and glad we did. A great change from the norm. Lots of flavor and the kinds lived that they could eat with their hands. If you looking for a change from the same old non descript stuff you get most other places... This is worth a... More

Had never tried Ethiopian food before, and will probably not return. The bread had a distinct vinegary flavor, the food highly spiced to the point I couldn't eat most of it. Went with a group, and they obviously were not able to accommodate us. We sat cramped into the hallway of the shopping center. Service again wasn't set up for... More

Queen of Sheba is a true gem among the rough that is many of the ethnic restaurants in Spokane. The food is an absolute delight. Rich, complex flavors with varying degrees of heat. The vegetarian options are equally as good as the meat choices (try the chickpea entree or the sautéed greens). The beef sambusa appetizer is one of our... More
