Description "Omaha's only Persian restaurant, one of only a handful in the region, offers fine Middle Eastern dining. A small, intimate dining room dressed in bright blue walls and ornate tapestries and linens features wide windows that open to a street-side view of the Old Market. The outdoor patio offers one of the best alfresco dining rooms in the city. The Persian menu features chicken, seafood and lamb entrees, in addition to a wide range of kabob selections.

"A Jewel In Omaha
Located in the middle of Omaha’s colorful Old Market district is a little jewel of a restaurant: Ahmad’s.
A dozen simple tables fill a small room adorned with large Persian-motif paintings on blue-painted walls. Seating is also available on the sidewalk patio out front—pleasant on a sunny day or warm evening." -Chef Moz Dining Guide, 24 Jun 2002
After decades as an Old Market landmark, Ahmad's Persian Cuisine is getting a bit of a respectful tweak. The blue walls, Persian paintings, and intimate atmosphere that are an Ahmad's tradition all remain, but the ambience will be warmer. Come and see the unveiling!
