For our first taste of Ethiopian food, we had the Queen's 8 to share, which was a good sampling of their savory menu. I found their recipes very similar to Indian, especially the lentil items. Only thing I did not care for was the injera...More

I searched for restaurants in the Tampa area that served a variety of vegetarian dishes. While many claimed to offer choices, their menus proved otherwise. Queen of Sheba delivered with lots of delicious choices. First visit and it will not be my last. Staff was...More
