We found this place on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. Excellent recommendation. We will definitely go back. The sushi was very good & very reasonably priced. At first it seemed like the service was extremely slow. However, we soon realized that anytime we looked around for our server, she instantly appeared. If we did not look for her, she was nowhere to be seen, but as soon as you made it evident that you needed something she would be right at your side. As the title above indicates, it is a very rough neighborhood. Be observant and careful. But if you are staying in the airport area, give this place a try. Sushi & drinks for three was only $75.

This place was great and I will be going back (soon). I was taken there last night on a first date. I was skeptical because of the location however, from the moment I walked in I felt that I was on vacation. The decor is great the food was plentiful, flavorful, a and fresh. The staff was friendly, quick , and respectful (the guy tried to order before I was ready and the young lady politely asked if he wouldn't mind until I was ready) Yes, I will be back...no, not with him.

The food has been great and consistent each and every time I visit the restaurant. I fly out of ATL airport often, so on return trips, I often stop past Zab-e-lee's before heading home. My favorite items on the menu are the inari pieces (tofu skins, sushi style), thai iced tea, vegetable spring rolls and tom-yum soup. I eat small meals, so this restaurant is great as it has options for smaller portions if you don't want a regular entree.

Considering the service, I have to admit it is hit or miss. I have been to the restaurant when the service was amazing, and I have also been when the service was to be desired. From experience, it seems the fewer customers in the restaurant the slower the service. In all, I would recommend Zab-e-lee's if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

Please note, the location is hard to find, as it is all the way in the back of a scary looking shopping center and does not have any signage off the street.

This is a hidden gem on the southside of Atlanta. No need for us southsiders to go all the way to Midtown for Thai. This family owned restaurant has been here for several years. The menu is quite varied, food is excellent and the service is some of the best I've had anywhere. Close to the airport so fine if you have a long layover or a conference and don't want hotel fare. GREAT place for us southsiders!

Found this restaurant on tripadvisor. Did not have experience consistent with other reviews. Service was extremely slow, even with only two other tables in restaurant. An extra order of sushi was put on our plate - when this was pointed out, the server took their bare hands and removed it from the plate, while putting their hands on our other food. Overall, food just average, service and would not recommend.
