I first experienced Ethiopian food in Ethiopia & fell in love with it. Queen of Sheba had all the dishes I had in Addis Ababa & they tasted authentic. I didn't get to experience the coffee ceremony, but the area for it looked legitimate. The food was delicious, service was fantastic & I will be going back.

First time visitor today. I'm glad I live close by because I will be coming back. The food (and coffee) was unique and INCREBILE!! The staff treated us like family. This is an experience you don't want to miss. You won't go away hungry either. Would rate it a 10 star if I could

(I posted the same on Yelp) The food was really good the first two times I visited with friends (around Thanksgiving and Christmas). However, the third time (February, 2017), I visited on my own, and they behaved in a way that left me feeling humiliated. When I showed up at 5:30 pm on a Friday night, the place was fairly... More

Each month we and another couple who are very good friends seek out restaurants at which none of us has eaten. Last night was the Queen of Sheba in the Flour Mill. The service was wonderful! Our waiter was very patient, friendly and knowledgeable about the cuisine. After dinner the owner came by our table to ask about our meal.... More

This restaurant is a very small restaurant located in the Flour Mill. I loved every dish we had. If you are in Spokane and love Ethiopian food I would say don't miss this place! Great value for a very delicious flavorful meal.

This restaurant, located in The Old Flour Mill, is tiny but serves unique and extremely flavorful food. Having never had Ethiopian food before, our very friendly server patiently guided our group of 7 in selecting a variety of dishes to share Ethiopian family style (using Ethiopian bread to scoop up the food instead of silverware).

The owner at the restaurant is amazing. Before we ordered she apologized for being out of our favorite beet salad. She recommended the lentil salad for us to try. We loved it although we laughed cause we may not have tried cold lentils. We had an amazing prime rib dish with it. She is great, the food is amazing.

I went with several friends to try new restaurant, busy Friday night. We were a little apprehensive about a meal with no utensils, but the wait staff put us at ease. We tried both the meat and vegetarian combos. 1 plate of each was plenty for the 4 of us. The flavors were unique but very tasty (lots of curry... More

Our party had never eaten this cuisine before so it was a different experience for us all. My granddaughter is vegan and we didn't know if this would be a problem, it was not. We each ordered something different. We didn't use silverware we used a type of bread to scoop our food. The food was very good and savory.... More
