Amed Mamood is a proud Kurdish American citizen, born and raised in Iraqi Kurdistan, into a family of 12 siblings. As a boy, he worked side by side with his father, himself a self educated, highly respected, and successful business man. Day to day they operated his father’s Candy factory together. Amed attributes his business interest and strong work ethic to the early experiences of his childhood. This exemplary example was consistently demonstrated by his father.

Amed came to United States in 1979 to earn an MS in Entomology from the University of Minnesota and later PhD in Agronomy & Plant Genetics, from the University of Arizona. He worked for the University of Arizona as a Research Plant Scientist from 1987 to 1999. During these years, he wrote and published 28 scientific research papers in the field of agriculture.

Although Amed has lived as a US citizen for most of his life, his Kurdish culture remains intact. He is proud of his cultural background which is demonstrated via an open ongoing relationship with Kurdistani universities, and as a chairman for Tucson/Sulaimani sister city, 2003 – 2008. He has been interviewed countless times by local news media, sharing his insights on behalf of the Kurdish people and Iraqi events. He wrote 14 editorials and opinions in the Arizona Daily Star and Tucson Citizen.

Amed is committed to offering his guests an authentic menu. At the same time, there are plenty of selections to appeal to the pickiest American palate. He has enjoyed the kinship of many regular valued patrons over the years and looks forward to more of the same for many years to come.
