This is my first review on happy cow, I never realized the maximum rating for non-veg restaurants is 4 of 5. Before writing this review, I thought the other reviewers were just being stingy! Hah!
If I could rate Queen Sheba five stars, I would. Five million stars even. Because when I come in to Queen Sheba, I don't -feel- like I'm in a non-veg restaurant. That sounds weird...why?
Because I don't have to do ordering acrobatics! I can just order right off the menu like any regular ol' omnivore!
The veggie sampler just IS vegan and I ask to add an order of the mild Tofu Tibbs to the platter as well. I get a LOT of food for my money: the sampler platter feeds my extra-large-appetite husband and myself when we add the Tofu Tibbs (and sometimes a side of rice if we're both extra hungry). The sampler provides a beautiful variety of delicious, healthy food that always hits the spot. I come in and feel like I'm eating at my friend's or my friend's mom's house, I love it. The vegan lunch buffet is also a great value.
My husband and I can eat just right here and have some leftover to take home, or forego leftovers and stuff ourselves full 'til we're waddling out for less than $20.
When I first moved here I got hooked on Queen Sheba, my mom moved here and she was here so often she barely used the kitchen at her new place for anything more than morning coffee :] Whenever I have friends in town that wanna go out for dinner, I bring them here. Even if they've never had Ethiopian food before or if they're skeptical about eating with injera, I'm sure there will be something here they will enjoy, and that's been the case 99% of the time! (my grandpa was hard to please, haha)
I always say Queen Sheba is THE BEST vegan restaurant in Sacramento!
Cons: nothing unless, you don't like, nice things :P
