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.....

Queen of Sheba is a good place to try Ethiopian food for the first time. They have lot of seating inside and also have bar seating up at the front. Caters to both vegetarian and non-vegetarian customers. I'm non-vegetarian but I decided to try the vegetable combo platter. This came with 6 veggie dishes which had ingredients such as collard greens, cabbage, string beans and chickpeas. It was all very tasty. It's fun to eat with your hands and scooping up the food using the injera. Definitely a memorable food experience and can be shared with friends. They have traditional seating also in the restaurant wherein you eat atop of a basket that's flipped over and then sit on low height stools. Something unique to try here is the honey wine, which is also know as mead. Goes great with the meal.

Really delicious food for the adventurous. The vegetarian glop is especially good.

I have tried 3 different Ethiopian restaurants in New York and this is my favorite and when I'm in Hell's Kitchen it's always a contender to fight for when deciding on an eatery. The place is small and intimate with a variety of different seating that sometimes resembles eating off the coffee table in the living room, which might make it a bit awkward to eat. The food unlike other places does not hold back on the spice unless you tell them to. I usually come with a few friends and order a combination of meat (Taste of Sheba) and vegetarian sampler dishes. It's perfect to share with vegetarians.

Come here for the unique experience of eating out of a shared plate - the ethiopian way. Service is very slow, so there's a long wait even after you're seated, but the food is good. Almost everything they serve here is with Injera that tastes and looks more like a sour Indian dosa. Love the appetizer 'Azifa' (Green Lentil Salad) which also comes with Injera. Doro Wot is a must try. They give you a choice of 5 sides with your entree. Make sure to specify your preferences, since the server otherwise doesn't bother to ask you. Honey wine's great for sweet-wine lovers. Avoid the dry croaker fish. Vegetarians have a lot of options, one of them being the vegetarian platter. Try your luck with group-ons for this place. We got a $80 for $40 deal.

I went here on a date in the afternoon, around 5pm, this was my first time eating Ethiopian and I was excited. I ordered the lamb meal that came with some other things. Having taken my first bite I was very unhappy that I chose to come to this place. The food was sour and did not have a good taste, the meat was extremely scarce (the lamb was mainly bones). The appearance of the food was like baby food globbed onto a tasteless and sour flat, spongy "bread." The food was cold, the service was poor. I was very disappointed. I would not recommend this place and I'm really surprised it was so highly rated.

Most definetely one of the better Ethiopian restaurants on Manhattan. If you enjoy Ethiopian food then you enjoy the food here, and if you're not accustomed to Ethiopian food this is a good place to start your exploration into their cuisine.
