We really loved this place. This was the first time we eat ethiopian food so we ask the staff for a recommendation. It was simply perfect!

I was really hungry when I visited here so that likely influenced my review. I haven't gone for Ethiopian for a while as my last experience elsewhere wasn't good. We ordered the vegetarian platter and it was fantastic. I really over ate. The spicy lentil was my favorite but I have to say it was all tasty. Staff is very... More

Visited this restaurant on Saturday night and we were nicely surprised - no waiting time to sit. We had a nice table by the window. It was getting darker outside- tealight on our table made it special, Pleasant decor (must have changed from when other reviews were posted) and very clean. Our food arrived in a reasonable time, was nicely... More

We love Sheba, the food is amazing, the service might seem slow but when you think about every dish is made to order, it is well worth the wait! Their Yebeg Tibs and Miser Wot are our go to dishes every time, as much as we've tried almost every other dish in their menu... the injera is fresh, moist and... More

Went to the location of this restaurant with the intention of dining at the Persian restaurant next door. Noticed this place and decided to check out the menu in the window. The owner came out and convinced us to give them a try. Over all I'm glad we did. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. However... More

Went here today with friends after work. All of us were totally disappointed. We ordered a chicken, a lamb and a beef dish and a veggie lentil dish. It took them nearly 35 minutes to get the food to the table. The beef was just alright didn't have any flavour. The lamb was over cooked dry and chewy and now... More

We loved eating at Sheba. The food was delicious and the place was really cool. The staff was very nice, but they seemed more interested in something on their iPad than checking on us. Overall great experience though!

I absolutely enjoyed the food and atmosphere at Sheba! I enjoy the fact that they carry a type of honey wine that is close to the homemade versions you find in Ethiopia. Great, great atmosphere with warm and sincere staff and the food is excellent. The location is convenient and easily accessible from downtown hotels. Another great reasonably priced Ethiopian...

This was part of a conference I attended in Toronto- the option to dine around the world. I chose Ethiopian and was given instructions to walk to Sheba. The restaurant is simple, but clean and comfortable. The waitress was very nice and attentive, bringing Ethiopian honey wine, beer and keeping our water glasses full. We split plates between four people... More

Pros: I came here for lunch on a Saturday with my boyfriend. The restaurant was not full but there were a few people there. I ordered the vegetarian sample platter and it was very good. Cons: The service was very slow. I accidentley left my scarf on the chair and came back that evening to see if it was there.... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
