The food here is rich and flavorful! They offer mild to spicy food. They even have Vegetarian dishes, and gluten free Injera (flat bread used to grab the food). They have limited desserts, but offer a beautiful coffee service. They also offer various wines, but if you like sweeter wine you will love their honey mead. Every time you visit... More

Found this place online when looking up restaurants in the area and checked out the reviews. Decided to try Ethiopian for the first time and it did not let us down! Amazing food and friendly waiter/hostess! Will become a regular spot for us and we can't wait to be back with family

Having eaten Ethiopian only once before, I can't tell you how authentic this is, but it sure tasted good. We had the Queen's 8 for 2 and honestly, it could have served 4. I was expecting it to be spicier but glad it was a medium spice level.

Me and my daughter tried this place after seeing it online. I have since brought each one of my kids seperately. The atmosphere is very cozy and welcoming. The food is out of this world. The experience is fun. Definitely a place to try. It is worth the trip. We drive a little over an hour to get there.

My friend and I visited Tampa and were looking for something different. I suggested Ethiopian. We searched the Internet and found Queen of Sheba. "The best Ethiopian restaurant in Tampa." Also the only Ethiopian restaurant in Tampa. Ethiopian restaurants are uncommon, but this is the fifth one I have eaten at. We ordered an appetizer sampler for two, and a... More

the atmosphere is unique and the food is special as well. portions are very small (and I am not a big guy) Service was authentic and quirky, but I liked it.

I've been going to Queen of Sheeba for years. While other Ethiopian restaurants in Tampa have not been able to remain open, the Queen has a survived due to its consistently excellent food that shouldn't intimidate those unfamilair with its unique dishes and spices. I always enjoy the doro wot, lentils, cabbage and recommend it to my friends that have... More
