Queen of Sheba is located in an unassuming strip mall, and the modest interior -- decorated with tapestries, carvings and maps of Ethiopia -- isn't much more impressive. But the kitchen turns out elaborate feasts fit for a king -- or queen: traditional Ethiopian dishes made of spiced chicken, beef, lamb and lentils served with tart, flat enjera bread, which you use to scoop up the hearty, savory stews. Diners will need plenty of the paper towels that sit atop every table -- and plenty of patience, since every dish is made to order and takes some time to prepare. But Ethiopian beers and honey wines provide a convenient distraction until the food comes.

Voted Best Ethiopian Restaurant in Westword's Best of Denver 2011!
You really feel like you're a guest in owner Zewditu Aboye's home when you dine at Queen of Sheba. Food can take extra time here, but it's always worth the wait. [Eater 38 Member]
You might have to wait a bit for the food, but it is well worth it
