An amazing Family Owned restaurant that has been around since 1989 in Durham
Great Vegan food and South African wine
One of my all time favorite places to eat! So good!!!
We really enjoyed our first foray into Ethiopian dining, and of course had to do it right and go with the basket instead of a table! We did the family-style meat platter (3 meat dishes, 2 veggie sides, plus bread) and the food was very good. Service was excellent, and our server was very knowledgeable! Will definitely do it again!
Queen of Sheba is fantastic! I love the fact that there's something for everyone there - vegetarian dishes, vegan dishes, spicy food, and mild food (i.e. very flavorful but not at all spicy). I've been able to take groups of people to the restaurant and everyone has loved it. And the quality of the beef, lamb, and chicken is excellent - it's great the restaurant supports local farms!
Loved the food - Chicken Tibbs so flavorful but not too spicy. Also liked the fact that the owner buys all her beef/chicken from local farms and that the meat is anti-biotic-free, beef is grass fed.
We ate very early: 5:30 pm 2 Friday nights ago.
Injera is totally delicious and nutritious. My friend's kids loved the food here, too. Couldn' t believe her otherwise picky 13 year old gobbled up the veggies on the platter and some of the shrimp dish! Her other daughter asked for a fork to eat (graciously provided by server) but the rest of us ate the traditional way - with our hands. By the time we left, the place was packed with patrons. Check this place out!
I discovered Abyssinia one lucky day after eyeing a gas station clerk's lunch of njera and other delights. He obligingly directed me to Abyssinia where I found it empty in the late afternoon-- but clearly set up to have live music and events from time to time. Kids played around in the empty restaurant while I waited for my take out order. It was a little pricier than I recalled similar vegitarian Ethiopian meals being-- but completely satisfying. I only wish there were still more Ethiopian restaurants in the area!
