Among the best Ethiopian restaurants in N. America
Posted on 02 / 04 / 2007
Simply put, Queen Sheba Ethiopian Restaurant on Broadway in Sacramento is among the best Ethiopian restaurants in the U.S. or Canada. I have dined at 24 Ethiopian restaurants in N. America in the last 8 years, and I am thoroughly impressed by the entire dining experience at Queen Sheba.
Foremost, the cuisine is delicious. Vegetables are clearly garden fresh. The injera holds its tooth well (even the "plate" stays firm for rolling at the end of the meal). For meat eaters, you will find no better presentation- tender, succulent, tasty. The menu is broad and offers choices for every palate. After dining at Queen Sheba three times, I say with confidence that the dishes are prepared to perfection- seasoning, cooking, presentation. The combination plates are generous and representative of their best dishes.
The atmosphere is fantastic: open, warm, soulful and welcoming. Lots of Ethiopian charm with a very natural, unassuming delivery that allows the diner to enjoy the surroundings rather than be overwhelmed. Immaculate and relaxing, a better venue for Ethipian cuisine could not be found.
Service is outstanding- personal, comfortable, attentive, and without delay. Friendly to a wide range of customers. I feel fantastic when I leave because the service is so perfect!
The value is amazing! A full combination dinner for two with beverages can be had for under $25!
delicious, perfect food, warm, relaxing atmosphere, impeccable service
