The food is always so flavorful, the prices very reasonable and the atmosphere very inviting. Queen Sheba is no exception, sad as it may look from the street.

After our visit in 2013, we came back this year, and did not regret it: took a combination plater, on top of the delicious n'djera, the typical Ethiopian sour flat bread. full recommend this small and great place.

Stopped while visiting relatives in Seattle. Very different food selections of African origen. We ordered platters and shared for a good selection of tastes. Food was fresh and hot. Recommended for something different.

This is my default go-to restaurant in Cap Hill. I like the no-frills, no wait in lines, no scope for disappointment aspect of this place and obviously the food. The food is so light and the place so chill, I always seem to be in the mood for it.

This restaurant is located on a semi-quiet street on Capital Hill in Seattle, Washington. Start your meal with an Ethiopian beer to get you in the mood. All of the food we had was delicious and authentic. Give it a try for something different.
