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, great service, and not your everyday meal- do go for it.

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 love that you can sit by the window and watch people go by and during a snow storm, its very nice to have his special tea and piping hot stews!

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.
