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 who you are.

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

The perfect blend of fresh food and spices. Hummus and cucumber sauce a must have. I'll be back for more. I had jujeh kabob chicken. Awesome.

Really enjoyed lunch here. Had a wonderful, fast and inexpensive chicken kabob with rice, roasted tomatoes and more. So much I could not eat it all. The owner--I guess--was a fun and friendly gent who told me how to eat the food, meaning which combinations or forkfuls together. And he was right. it was delicious. We had a nice conversation...

It's really quite small but surprisingly hardly ever full. I don't know if Omahaians/Omahaites? haven't discovered this delicious hole-in-the-wall or what. Our party of 3 shared pita bread with baba ghanouj, falafel and the potato tomato entree. They have a full bar but we just had some nice white wine with our dinner.

Amazing food and absolutely delightful owner. He made us a special dish that was not on the menu. No better place to Omaha.

Perfect destination for a group of old friends to gather and feast on Ahmad's Persian cuisine. We had 14 in our party. By the end of the dinner we were serving ourselves while Ahmad created the most delicious servings of chicken lamb and steak. You must try everything on the menu. Ahmad is very accommodating.

A friend in our home town, Kansas City, recommended Ahmad's when I asked for suggestions of where to eat in Omaha. We called ahead of time to make sure we would get a table. We were surprised to find that the restaurant was a very small, but cozy,place with only about 10 tables. It was a miserable night to be... More

Honestly I don't understand what is going on with the people that say that this place has good food. Service was just average. I ordered the lamb and it came with rice (ok nothing special there) a roasted, boiled or whatever tomato and a sliced banana!!!! really $ 70 dinner for tomatoes, rice and banana with a little piece of...

This place is great! It's nice and cozy and clean. Nice paintings on the walls. The menu offers great variety. My wife and I shared a delicious vegetarian dish over rice with a salad and banana slices. Along with that we had sides of a nice lemony hummus and baba ganoush with flat bread. We finished up with Turkish coffees.... More
