Welcome to Queen Sheba Ethiopian Cuisine. On behave of our management and staff. We would like to welcome you to Queen Sheba. We are certain you dining experience will be a pleasurable one. We appreciate your patronage, and are always open to customer comments, questions, or concerns. Ethiopia, Food, and Culture Unlike Western culture, Ethiopians place importance on communal dining traditions. Diners eat from a common platter, and the breaking of bread together takes on a strong social significance, for it is considered essential to maintaining loyal bonds and friendship. An example of this is the custom of Gursha, Gursha meaning "mouthful" and refers to placing food in another's mouth, usually as a gesture of friendship and/or affection. Gursha is exchanged between relatives and friends. Ethiopian cuisine is very unique and any dish would be incomplete without the addition of special spices that give each dish its flavor. Mitmita and Berbere are two kinds of spice mixtures used in Ethiopian cooking. The main staple of foods for most Ethiopians are Injera and Wot. Wot is a stew that usually contains a pepper mixture and can be prepared from meats, vegetables, or fish. Injera is a an unleavened bread with a spongy texture, made from Teff, a grain comparable to wheat, which is grown in Ethiopia. A piece of Injera is wrapped around a bite of food and placed into mouth with fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We arrived early in the evening. There were initially only two other parties. We ordered signature dishes which were well prepared, however, it was a long wait for our food.It was very chilly in the restaurant. I was cold with my coat on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was both of our first time dining at an Ethiopian restaurant, so we had no idea what to expect; however, the food was AMAZING an the staff was friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our food to emerge!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The waitress was pleasant but mostly nonexistent, and the food was mediocre and tasted like it had been rewarmed many times. The meat was tough and dry. The seasoning was vaguely Ethiopian but not the wonderful flavor I'm used to. It was also very expensive for what we received. We ordered a meat combination platter and a vegetable combo, which were served to us all on one platter, but the portions were very small. I went back with friends this time to give the restaurant another chance, but they haven't changed and I won't go back again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish the waitress hadn't checked for our credit card multiple times. It felt like we were rushed out of there.
