Located in a small shopping strip, but this place is FINGER LICKING good. During all my business travels to Atlanta, I always make it a point to have a good meal at Bahel. My favorite dish is spicy boneless chicken cooked in a brown tomato...More

My habesha friends recommended this as a spicier alternative to Desta. I showed up there with my family yesterday around 12:30 for lunch. There was no open sign but the door was unlocked so we sent our daughter to go ask if they were serving...More
