Queen of Sheba, Chapel Hill

I just noticed that Queen of Sheba made Greg Cox's list of top 10 new restaurants in the Triangle. I did not realize that they had opened in a new location.

Have any Ethiopian food aficionados tried it? Back in the mid '90s, the QoS's owner, Friesh, had a terrific little Ethiopian takeout place, the Blue Nile, on Chapel Hill Rd in Durham (the way, way back location of Suman's Indian takeout, before Suman opened on Main St, and back when that was the only Indian food to be found in all of Durham). Then the Blue Nile moved to Lakewood, and the quality of the food went way, way down. I also was not particularly fond of the Carrboro Queen of Sheba food. I found much of it to be non-distinctive, underseasoned, and not terribly fresh-tasting. But I know Friesh knows how to cook, and I love great Ethiopian, so it would be great if this new incarnation of Queen of Sheba is really that good.
