Queen of Sheba is one of the best and most authentic Ethiopian Restaurants. The service is good, and the honey wine is great. But their signature dish is the lamb's special -- if you go there before 10pm it will be a fresh, crispy, plate of incredibly marinates cubes of lamb, barbecued to perfection. I've been there after that time, and I've found it less exciting. I also suggest the combo platter: it's plenty for two or three people, and you get to try various delicious meats and vegetables. It's spicy, of course, but that's what the honey wine is for!

The food here is quite good, though I'm no judge of quality compared to other Ethiopian places. There are traditional tables where they lay the bread (injira) down on top of it and you just eat whatever you ordered off it. There are regular tables as well as a bar. The service can be variable, however, there are a few waitresses who are super friendly and a few that don't seem to want to be there.

Of the two Ethiopian restaurants within two blocks of each other, this one serves up the superior experience. Festive ambience, great food, and full bar menu. Service can be unexpectedly slow, but this is a slow-meal experience, so I guess it's part of the charm. One star shy of the full 5 for the tight seating arrangement.

Spent 23 days in Ethiopia in January and loved the food, so I was excited to go here based on the reviews. I have to say I was disappointed. Not anywhere near as good as what I had in Ethiopia. All the food had a very strong taste which was vinegary?? which I did not experience while in Eth. Service was fine, just very slow, especially from the bar. Not a big deal though. Maybe I'll have to start trying to cook my own.....

Tucked away in Hell's Kitchen, this Ethiopian restaurant has a small intimate space and traditional seats. It was a little too pricey to my liking, but they did serve up a sumptuous Sheba Vegetarian (a combo sampler) served on an injera bread, and our Zilzil Tibs (beef marinated in awaze) was similarly tasty. It did take a surprising 45 minutes for our food to surface from the kitchen, though we were busy chatting away and we didn't mind the wait too much.

Cozy decor, and reasonably good food. They also have more traditional Ethiopian seating. The service however is very slow, and the place seems understaffed. The cocktails are sweeter than they ought to be... I'd stay away from them.

Injras with lamb gravy were a treat. May be my insatiable hunger is to blame but the lamb gravy was comparatively less in quantity. Will definitely judge the quantity the next time I go there. Also, carry cash with you to pay. ;)
