“Fav DC Ethiopian Cuisine”

More about the food and less about the atmosphere. Far more casual than Ethiopian spots I have visited on U Street.

“Owners & staff treat you like family”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We have never had Ethiopian cuisine, but decided to try it on vacation. The owners where so very kind, helping us feel confident and comfortable with our food selections. The atmosphere is dated and needs a renovation. The food was savory and delicious. The meal was full of flavor. Don't ask for a fork, eat with a thin spongy bread. The meal was shared, presented on a family style tray. I had golden tidbit....YUM. They offered American and Italian options...picky kid happy :) .

“Delicious”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Ethiopian food was a 'must do' for my recent Washington DC trip. Queen of Sheba fit the bill perfectly. The vegetarian sampler of four dishes was the perfect taste of the amazing Ethiopian cuisine.
