Al Ahmadi is a suburb of Kuwait founded in 1946 with the discovery of oil. It is the headquarters for the Kuwait Oil Company. Al Ahmadi in Kuwait is famous for its oil refineries and peaceful green surroundings. Locally, Al Ahmadi is called the 'home of KOC' because of the large number of Kuwait Oil Company refineries located here.

Ahmadi is a well established pretty town, with an american style grid layout and lots of green spaces. There are lots of older style villas here within compound areas with lots of gardens. It is very far from Kuwait City and the major shopping areas but close to the more traditional shopping area of Fahaheel.
