If you are looking for an adventurous culinary experience, Addison’s Queen of Sheba has been serving up authentic Ethiopian, Italian and vegan food for over 30 years! It's a must-visit for adventurous foodies!
Updated August 2021
Tucked away in an old strip center off Inwood road in Addison, this hidden gem Italian and Ethiopian restaurant is family-owned and operated and has relocated to Addison from their original location on McKinney and Lemmon!
The Dining Room
The space has an upscale royal vibe and pays homage to The Queen of Sheba through the Ethiopian art and decor. Everything feels very authentic, including the hand woven baskets from Ethiopia that they serve the Injera bread in!
How It Works
Ethiopian food is served on a large platter meant for sharing and includes different dishes, stews and sauces arranged on top of Injera bread. Our visit was our first time trying Ethiopian food, so if you’re like us and find yourself not knowing what to order, the extremely knowledgable servers will explain the entire menu and make suggestions for what to order!
WHAT WE ATE
We gave our server free rein to bring us the most popular dishes for the most authentic Ethiopian experience, and they did not disappoint! For appetizers we ordered the sambusa, catenga, and African salad, and for our entrees we ordered the veggie platter, and the combo meat platter. All of it was so flavorful and delicious! In addition to Ethiopian food they also serve authentic Italian food, and if you’re wondering what the connection is there, Ethiopia was actually part of the Italian Empire back in the 30’s! We didn’t try any of the Italian dishes but have heard they are also really good!
