    First time to try Ethopian food. Fun! Great friendly service. Ordered Taste of Sheba sampler. Great way to try everything. Next to us they had a huge platter w/a whole chicken. That look great!

    Really good Ethiopian food. It's a nice vegetarian option. The vegetarian plate is big enough for two people. They offer beer, wine and cocktails.

    Another recommendation for the sweet honey wine. The platters are exceptional especially the misir wot. The Azifa appetizer has a pungent wasabi like taste which may not be for everyone.

    Azifa, Doro Wot are a must try. Honey wine's great for sweet wine lovers. Avoid the dry croaker fish. The traditional way of eating from a communal plate is a unique experience.

    Small and lively joint serving traditional Ethiopian fare. We’d recommend the Taste of Sheba for newbies with a few glasses of honey wine.

    Avocado was my favorite appetizer. Amazing veggie platter - more than enough food. Try their manhattans and sangria, both tasty and refreshing!

    Be patient with the floor staff - your wait for a drink, your order will be well worth it. First timer? Split the Queen of Sheba Sampler.

    Take the platter to share with some extra bread. It's enough for two people.

    Love the ambiance here, people are always laughing and happy. Meskerem, around the corner, is a much quieter place.

    bring some earplugs as this place can get as loud as the food is good. The Injera is good, the veggie combo is a must!
