We went to Ahmad's at a friends request and had an amazing time. The food was delicious. Not spicy for people with mild preferences. It is a small little restaurant in the heart of the Old Marker in Omaha. Local, Family Owned and Operated! My favorite type. This isn't anything fancy like most places in the old market. It is...

It is not the best persian food I have tried - not even close. But it is good. My wife likes this place as well. Come with appropriate expectations and you will enjoy it.

Dined with business associates at this Old Market location. Great outdoor seating and very nice service. The food was delicious, especially the humus and fallafel appetizers. For the main meal I tried the combination meat/chicken/shrimp dish and while the meats were a little dry, the tastes with rice and banana accompaniment more than made it a good meal. Great location,... More

I am a fan of Persian food and enjoy it in a number of cities. While the hummus at Ahmad's was nice, the meats including the Koubideh were not. Dry, chewy and lacking in moisture and flavor. Service was good and the price okay but either a new chef or new recipe(s) is needed.

The food was quite good, finding a persian place in omaha is like finding a purple squirrel. Ahmad runs this place and runs it well. He can get overwhelmed sometimes because he gives people such personal attention so the food can be slow to come, so dont go here unless you have enough time. But you wont regret it, i... More

Enjoyed the casual colorful setting but left our lunch still hungry. While the food was well prepared the falafel was appetizer portion at a full lunch price.

I go here every time I am in omaha without fail, it is one of the best resturants I have ever been to. My favorite meal is alittle overpriced but even still, it is worth it. Ahmad is an excellent cook and his daughter Ahava makes it a perfect family owned resturant. Great location also.
