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 will definitely return!

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

Stepped into try something different than brew pub fare and were pleasantly surprised. Small setting, maybe about 10 tables, and immediately greeted warmly by the owner. Very welcoming and early proud of his efforts (and deservedly so). The falafel was great, the lentil soup outstanding, and the pork kabobs were terrific. Others in the party raves about their dishes as... More

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.

Great persian food available here in Omaha at a fair price. I like the kabob with extra sumac (dried berry powder)

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.
