Authentic, delicious, reasonably priced – We've eaten Ethiopian food in Addis, Auxum, and other places in Ethiopia and have eaten at every Ethiopian rstaurant in Denver/Aurora save for two that we will eventually get to. We keep coming back to Queen of Sheba. It's about as authentic as you can get and Zewditu has the best injera. Service is excellent, the prices are way reasonable, and the atmosphere is enough like being back there so if I just close my eyes, smell the aromas, and listen to the music and hubbub in the kitchen, I could almost....
Love the Food and the people!!! – You have to try it. The spices, the flavors...This place is to die for
Never disappoints! – I love this hole in the wall eatery. Everything from its inspired and daring menu to its wonderful staff/owner/cook, I look forward to every meal I have here. The portion sizes are generous and well priced, the wine is inexpensive and complimentary, and the variety of menu items are alway cooked to a perfection and unmatched in other local eateries. While I hope it stays quiet enough for me to always get great service and a table, I hope that others get to experience this wonderful restaruant. The "Queen" definitely keeps it real and I feel lucky to call this my local favorite.
Food like Mom makes (if Mom were Ethiopian) – Zewditu (the owner) makes all of her food with love - love for her customers, love for making good quality food. Eating there is like going to Mom's for a home-cooked meal. Her food is my comfort food. Almost anything you order can be made as mild or spicy as you like. Whether carnivore or vegetarian, you are guaranteed to get a meal that is tasty and unusual, but very satisfying. Be warned - this is "hands-on" eating. You don't get silverware, except to pack up your left-overs. In almost a decade of regular dining, it always puts a spark in my eye, just to say its name. The food is personalized in a relaxing atmostphere of Mom's (or Grandma's) kitchen (without Mom telling you to keep your elbows off the table!). The moderate prices are balanced with an abundance of food (besides, left overs always taste better the next day). Attention coffee lovers: Ethiopian coffee is roasted and ground in-house with each order!! In a day and age where customer service is often a learned skill, at Queen of Sheba, it is the rule of the day. It is natural, it is effortless.
Best Food EVER! – This is by far my favorite place to eat. The food is amazing. The orginal owner (who makes the best food) is going to be back in busniess starting September 19, 2006. She is from Etheopia and makes the best food ever. I recommend this place to everyone.
Awful food and customer service – We have been to a few ethiopian restaurants and have loved the food. This place however was a disaster! The food was cold, bland, stale, and unedible and the service was also cold and stale. We did not get our requested water or service with a smile. Needless to say, we will not be returning and we will not be recommending this to anyone!
Queen of Sheba STINKS!
Well, it used to be great! – This place was greally great but has changed owners and is now merely alright. Find another place!
A finger-licking, spicy and authentic taste of east Africa. – The Scene
Tucked into a rundown Colfax strip mall, this tiny Ethiopian joint draws adventurous taste buds and African regulars from around the city. The walls are covered with tourist posters, maps, native masks and tapestries. Most tables fit a party of four, while a community table hosts more. The motherly chef-owner simmers the food to perfection as diners wile away the time with conversation.
Spicy traditional Ethiopian food comes on a gigantic platter of injera, a spongy, porous flatbread used to scoop up the various dishes. Savor tender lamb tips--cubed and simmered with onions and jalapenos. Scoop up spicy red lentils (miser wott) cooked into a thick stew for easier handling. Cool down with yatakelt wott--chunks of soft, lightly seasoned potatoes, carrots and cabbage. Vegetarians have filling options and house honey wine is as sweet as it sounds. Eating with your fingers never tasted so good.
stuff – this place kicks ass, the service there is always prompt and friendly, and the cook will make anything the way you like it...it's a fantastic place!
A tiny winner! – Eating at the The Queen of Sheeba is like being invited into someone's home. The food was excellent, the service was friendly. There is something wonderful about hearing the veggies for your dish being chopped minutes after you order. Although this restaurant is an hour from where I live anytime I am in the area I will be back. It is great food! Try it I promise you will like it!
