I understand where some of the reviews are coming from, but honestly, this is still my husband and I's favorite place to eat. Definitely don't go there if you're in a rush. We go there when we want yummy food that isn't overbearing. We get the fried bread appetizer and large portion of a main course. We try different things and always find that we have plenty of food. We've been going there for almost a year now, and the service has always been extremely friendly, albeit not fast. It just isn't a typical restaurant that people are used to here, and while some may see that as a con, we see it as a plus. Love the food, we're friendly with the staff, and we love the quiet! I am worried that they're going to close (tragedy for us!) so do give it a try!

3.Ashee Ethiopian Cuisine
903 NE Maynard Rd
WARNING: this place is HIGHLY ADDICTIVE and may cause uncontrollable cravings for more! Ashee is a VEGETARIAN & VEGAN delight. :) Of course, it also has TASTY meat dishes (according to my husband); but I'm specifically mentioning vegetarian & vegan because it's often hard to find YUMMY veggie meals when dining out. They have a lentil dish, a split pea dish, and a chickpea dish that will give you some DELICIOUS COMFORT FOOD protein. Their collards are AMAZING. Honestly, I've eaten here at least 5 times in the past 2 weeks, if not more, and I have yet to find a dish that is anything less than WONDERFUL. Their Ethiopian coffee is also INCREDIBLE, fresh beans roasted over an open flame, ground with cloves & cinnamon ... I've never been able to drink coffee black until I had this. MMMMM. Don't say I didn't warn you. :)

African RestaurantsMiddle Eastern RestaurantsRestaurants
Upon entering the restaurant, you experience the overwhelming olfactory sensation of the pungent spices that permeate the room. The restaurant has tightly quartered tables which were mostly empty when I visited on an off day at an off time (intentionally). I have passed this restaurant at times where there are no open tables. On the left wall of the restaurant, you will find several basket-like tables prepared for two diners. The remainder of the restaurant has regular tables. I opted for the basket like table which was lined with heavy plastic, with two seats facing each other and a small table to the side for drinks and bread. Meals are served on a large platter which is covered with a large spongy porous bread that had a thin pancake-like consistency. The bread is called injera, made from an Ethiopian grain called Teff, which is rich in calcium and iron. The entrees and side dishes are served directly on top of the bread, which soaks in the juices from the various stew-like meals. An additional basket of injera is provided to serve as your utensils. The injera is broken into small pieces and used to pick up bite size morsels. These morsels can be shared with your dining partner in a tradition that is known as gursha, where friendships are demonstrated through the sharing of food. There are several different basic cooking methods to choose from. These methods are applied to chicken, beef and lamb (or vegetarian...Ethiopian food boasts a wide variety of vegetarian dishes due to the strict adherence of Orthodox Christians to Lenten diets). Watt is a stew-like dish that can be fixed a variety of ways ranging from mild to spicy. Another dish called Fitfit (or Sifinfin) also has a stew-like consistency but contains broken pieces of injera cooked into the dish. Pan-fried meat is referred to as Tibbs. Not knowing anything about Ethiopian food and having an aversion to lamb dishes, I advised my waitress regarding my particular tastes. I was inclined towards ordering the three meat dish so I could sample a variety of cooking styles. This option included a lamb dish, which I was allowed to substitute for a chicken dish (an excellent choice was recommended). My meal consisted of the following dishes: Minchetabish - Finely chopped prime beef, first pan-fried with Sheba’s spices until golden, then simmered in the famous Ethiopian berbere sauce. This heavily spiced beef had a slightly sweet hot flavor that was very foreign to my taste buds. Yedoro Watt - Tender chicken marinated in lemon, sautéed in seasoned butter and stewed in red pepper (hot and thick berbere sauce) and served Ethiopian style with hard-boiled eggs, which are knife-poked and simmered in the watt. (This dish can be served with home made Ethiopian yogurt, but I did not have it served that way). These dark chicken drumsticks came served on the bone. Yedoro Tibbs - My dinner was supposed to be served with a lamb option. I do not care for lamb so I asked my waitress to suggest a dish that I might like. She recommended Yedoro Tibbs, which is boneless pieces of chicken marinated with ginger, garlic, and honey wine, then pan-fried with onions and purified butter. Friesh made me feel like she cooked for me as a guest in her home rather than a customer in her restaurant. That is a special quality that few restaurants possess. I would highly recommend Queen of Sheba with five stars out of a possible five.

There were so many things on the menu that looked great that I had a hard time choosing my lunch dish. I finally settled on the Spicy Chicken Sandwich with the chipolte ranch dressing. It was great! The salad I chose for my side was very fresh and tasty as well. \r \r The waitress was pleasant and attentive without hovering or becoming impatient when it took us a while to order.\r \r Give this restaurant a try for a nice casual lunch!
