We approached Ahmad's, and unknowingly asked Ahmad's family what Persian Cuisine tasted like. Which that, they went and got Ahmad himself, who tended to our every need. The food and service were excellent, the price was reasonable, and the outside seating area was perfect. We...More

Only one waiter. So waiting time is long. The food was so-so. Went there because of reviews. Disappointed.

Ahmad's is one of our all time favorites. Start with Ahmad, he is personable and fun to visit with. I am a big fan of his kabob kubadah, the spices he uses linger in your mouth and bring you back.

Ahmad's is in our top five of Omaha restaurant. I can't pass up the kabob kubadah. Ahmad hits the spices just right. He also offers interesting appetizers that are always worth trying. The service is first rare and in a few visits Ahmad will know...More

Pricy. On the menu says skewS of kabob, but they give u one. Yellow rice is not saffron as it should be. One of the worse Persian restaurant by far
