Good Food, Accommodating Owner

I asked for an authentic Persian dish. The waiter took time to explain the dishes and offer suggestions. They worked with me on portion size and spice level. Explained traditional way to eat the dish. The owner took time to come over to talk. The food was very good with the exception of the bread.

We recently ate at Ahmad's in the Old Market area of Omaha. We went with our family and had a delicious dinner. This is our 3rd or 4th visit to this restaurant we always try to make it there when we visit Omaha. The appetizers and entrees always have been delicious and the service excellent. I recommend this place to... More

I visited Omaha foe a few days and I heard that Ahmad's is the place to go for Falafel. It is in an excellent location in Old Market. The service was excellent and the food was done perfectly. I was there for lunch and had Baba Ganouj and the falafel sandwich. Both were prepared and presented very well. I also... More

I had the pork tenderloin kabobs. They were exquisite: tender, juicy, and perfectly seasoned. They were served with rice and grilled tomatoes, and Ahmad's suggestion was to eat meat with the tomatoes and rice in each bite. Delicious.

Not impressed with the food. It was overloaded in lime and seasoning to the point you could taste nothing else. I ordered the Kabob Kubideh and my wife ordered the chicken kabob. They tasted very similar (because of the seasoning and citrus)... We had hummus as an appetizer, but they served it with tortillas that they threw on the grill... More

The food we cooked after ordering resulting in a longer wait, but it was worth it. We enjoyed each of our different dishes.

It's just a small, lovely little restaurant in the Old Market area. The paintings hanging inside drew me to look more closely and we ended up having a great lunch and a lovely conversation with Ahmad, the owner and cook. He even makes his own yogurt to use in his dishes. The grilled chicken marinated in Yogurt, onions and lemon... More

Visited there with a party of 4 last week. The prices were steep, but I thought the food might be good. Oh no. So little food, and what we got was poor quality for the most part. The service was also quite bad, despite out being the only ones there. Having come from the Middle East recently only made it... More
