I didn't love this place. I have been to a great Ethiopian restaurant (in New Brunswick, NJ) and this place doesn't really compare. The food came out and didn't even look good. It tasted worse. The floors are rugs on top of rugs and that makes me think it might be unclean. The service was OK, the women weren't really talking to us. I don't recommend it.

I went here with a bunch of friends. Food was okay, service was okay. I never had Ethiopian food before, but have heard of it being pretty interesting, and it was definitely worth the try. Would go again. P.S. Service charge is already included. I am not sure if they inflated it, but they may have.

atmosphere is nice, and the place was pretty full. the food is very unique- how it's served. I'm glad i went. As far as the food goes-- it was ok. The meat dishes- i had the lamb, and tried the beef-- were average. Reasonably priced though. I would have preferred that the prices were a few dollars higher, and the meat was a better quality. The beef was a bit chewy. the lamb was more tender-- but by no means really good. Ethiopian beer was nice-- and the coffee and expressos were the best. Ethiopian coffee-- who would have thought.

This was my first time eating at an Ethiopian Restaurant. I've only had home made Ethiopian food. The service and atmosphere was great! The food was good too. I think having homemade food you get a little bit more flavor. I will definitely go back!!

If you crave Ethiopian, and don't try The Queen, shame on you. Purel is a most: finger nibbling can get messy and unsanitary. Make sure to order the Amstel Light; you'll appreciate what you get. For three people, we ordered two combination sample platters and an appetizer and were satisfied with the portions.

Love Ethiopian food. In general I have not found NYC to be that great for this cuisine, prefer Chicago and DC, but I think this is one of the better ones in the city. Definitely better than Meskerem and maybe even Ghenet.Their Injera isn't that great, but the dishes on the veggie sampler are very good, and they are one of the few places that make Shimbra assa.

The platters are a good option, i liked the lentils, and beef dishes a lot. Service was very poor. Waitress ignored us, forgot to bring our drinks.
