I have visited a number of other Ethiopian restaurants in Toronto. While many have very good food, Sheba is the one I go to most regularly. For those who want to taste a variety of dishes, the customizable veggie or veggie and meat platters are ideal, and offer a great introduction to Ethiopian cuisine for beginners. For those who want to focus on one dish, Sheba does mama shiro and doro tibs better than anywhere else I have been.

The best thing about Sheba is the atmosphere. The restaurant is spacious clean (particularly in comparison to other Ethiopian restaurants in Toronto). It is covered with Ethiopian artifacts and is run by two Ethiopian sisters who are friendly and welcoming. The coffee ceremony is very nicely presented and a great way to finish off a meal.

The restaurant was simple; the service efficient - but at the end of the day the food was the weak link. It was bland; the meat very chewy and various sauces nondescript!
The friendly staff could not mitigate this weakness.

The food was very tasty and flavorful; spicy, but not too hot... just right. My only negative comment is that the meat (beef) was a little tough. It didn't bother me much, but I would have given them a 5 if the meat was just a bit more tender.. at least I know they didn't use meat tenderizers. The bread was the best compared to any other Ethiopian restaurant I've been to. The salad (comes as a side with the meal) was fresh. The presentation was nice and the service was good and friendly. The atmosphere is casual and welcoming.

I try Ethiopian restaurants in cities all over the world. Sheba of Toronto managed to top the list for flavor. The service and location were also great. They have indoor and outdoor seating. This is as good as it gets.

Sheba is located close to Kensington where there is a pedestrian street with lots of interesting restaurants and shops.
The food is of excellent quality and well priced for the downtown area. we tried the vegetarian platter which had about 5 veggie dishes served on a bed of injera. be prepared to eat with your hands as no cutlery is on the table. We also tried a meat dish whihc came on the same platter - they serve food on large platters which are great for sharing. The service tends to be a little slow, so pre-ordering is a good idea if you are in a hurry or wiht kids, But the wait is definitely worth it.
