Louisville has many options in terms of vegan restaurants and Queen of Sheba, although not deliberately intended to be vegan, is an amazing place for great vegan food. Food: We started off with an Ice Tea and Sheba Te'j - an Ethiopian Honey Wine. The...More

As many reviewers mentioned, the curb appeal is not high. The interior is plain with some Ethiopian decorations. Large or small groups can be accommodated by moving tables together or apart. We were seated in a smaller room with traditional woven tables to support the...More

Almost everything is gluten free in their menu. The Injera bread you use to eat everything with is gluten free as well. I used Queen of Sheeba to cater for a gluten free wedding last year. Hope this helps.
