This restaurant is in a strip mall, so it's not as plush or exotic as I expected from the pictures on the web site.
My husband and I chose to sit at a mesob, the traditional Ethiopian basket table. At other Ethiopian restaurants, the mesob is often paired with little stools, but at Queen of Sheba, the mesobs are paired with the same restaurant chairs as the western-style tables, so I thought we were sitting a bit high.
We shared Queen of Sheba's Vegetarian Combination (which is 100% vegan!). It includes Yetimatim (Tomato Salad), Yemisir Azefah (Lentil Salad), Yedinich (Potato Salad), which are brought out first on the traditional injera on a platter and placed on top of the mesob, while additional injera is put on a dish on a stool to the side. The server then brought out bowls of the entreees, Kik Alich'a (Yellow Split Peas), & Yemisir Kay Watt (Red Lentil). The Yemisir Kay Watt was deliciously spiced and was our favorite. We weren't so fond of the cold Yedinich. For two people, the meal was $26.00. We accompanied this with a glass of the house merlot, $6.95 per glass. It was a very satisfying meal, and we hope to be back soon.
