Split the veggie combo- was delicious, enough for 2 people, and about $14. Quaint and cozy- relaxing break from busy Capitol Hill hot spots. Friendly staff and great service. Definitely check it out.

Great spot for vegan food in Capital Hill. I got take-out because I was tired after a day of conferencing, but the dining area seemed comfortable. Queen Sheeba had an okra dish I haven't seen on many Ethiopian menus. I highly recommend trying it!

Attentive server. Good food, served quickly. We like stopping in an Ethiopian place once in a while to eat without utensils.

After our visit in 2013, we came back this year, and did not regret it: took a combination plater, on top of the delicious n'djera, the typical Ethiopian sour flat bread. full recommend this small and great place.

Stopped while visiting relatives in Seattle. Very different food selections of African origen. We ordered platters and shared for a good selection of tastes. Food was fresh and hot. Recommended for something different.
