Perfect food for a rainy day

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

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.
