THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Queen of Sheba Restaurant Restaurant Review

: This is authentic Ethiopian dining at its finest, complete with low tables, rattan stools to sit on and communal dining. You don't even need be adventurous to enjoy the fare that is scooped up with pieces of injera, a spongy, thin, crêpe-like bread that lines the large serving vessel. Forks are not allowed, but you'll soon get into the swing of tearing off a piece of the injera and folding it to scoop up yummy portions of stews, lentils, spicy vegetable combinations and an American-style salad that centers the selection of entrées. Located in the shadows of IUPUI, the Indianapolis campus of Indiana University and Purdue University, and a five-minute drive from the center of town, Sheba attracts those who like healthful dishes that are tasty and fun to eat. After dinner, relax with a glass of tea served in ceremonial fashion. It is worth the experience even if you thrive on java.
