First review
Queen of Sheba is a family owned restaurant which features authentic Ethiopian cuisine. The restaurant also serves Italian food. Prices are higher than average, but Sheba offers an exotic food experience in an upscale and welcoming environment.

Sheba has been in Dallas for over 20 years. Initially the restaurant was in Uptown (a retro urban part of Dallas) and then moved to Addison about 7 years ago. Sheba is located in a so-so shopping center with a number of liquor stores and a bit south from the main drag of Belt Line Road. However, the restaurant interior is tastefully appointed. It includes hardwood floors and Ethiopian decorations. The main seating areas surround an open area which is used for dancing when the restaurant becomes a nightclub late on weekends.

The server was very helpful in explaining the menu and offered useful suggestions. She provided pleasant and attentive service which really enhanced the experience. Food is presented in a traditional platter style or as regular entrees. A sambusa appetizer with ground beef in a pastry and with a cold lentil salad was tasty but was a small portion. The vegetarian combination plate worked well as an entrée and is suitable for sharing because it includes 7 servings on a large platter with soft and thin bread underneath. The portions had an interesting mix of spices and textures. Silssi vegetable is a spicy and tasty addition as a side dish. A manicotti entrée from the Italian menu was disappointing; it was quite bland and rubbery. Also, the baklava dessert was poor, as it was too sweet and crunchy. The overall experience here was good. The Ethiopian style dishes were tasty and the service was great. Variety is the spice of life as they say, and Sheba provides plenty of zest for the adventurous diner.
