Description: This is my 3rd and final restaurant. I relocated from North Naples after a 15 year successful run. I wanted this interior to be very sharp, elegant, 5th avenue chic yet with some Persian touches. it "resembles a Persian jewel box". I updated my menu and am continuing my innovative and classic Persian creations. The range is varied from somehow comfortable, simple and wholesome food to sophisticated and mutli level flavors ready to be enjoyed by all culinary food lovers. Bha! Bha! is an innovative Persian bistro. A Persian influenced (since I was born there, but raised in Maryland and Florida) and a chic south Florida inspired BISTRO.I have always billed it as that. In fact the word "INNOVATIVE" appears our marquis, website and various advertisements, even on this very site.Although many of the classic items such the authentic Ghorme Sabzi, Fesenjune, Halleem, Bademjune, Kashke` Bademjune , Aash and Chelo kabob Koobideh, or Barg are present on the menu; more than half of the menu is dedicated to various fusions, innovations and techniques with other Persian inspirations. The menu price range is in line with our neighboring restaurants. We try to avoid to conform to the misconception of being: "ethnic= cheap =spicy".Although I am constantly inspired by all other cuisines, but my food should not be stereotyped with Arabic, Turkish, Indian, etc. or any other single ethnicity. My signature food at Bha! Bha! Bistro remains just that. My signature cooking here are many dishes on my menu that perhaps are not seen or recognized in a typical Persian restaurant. Yet, all the classic Persian ingredients like pomegranates, mint, saffron, rose water, cardamom, pistachios basmati rice etc. are all present; however they are not all packaged into one entree. Among the 3 dozens items on my menu some are packed with flavors and some are kept low key for the respect of diners who may not be too enthusiastic about overwhelmingly pungent flavors. My staff will go out of their way to guide the dinners into a perfect union with their choices. I invite you to come over and allow me to entice all your culinary senses by what I have created over the past 25 years. Eagerly welcoming you Michael Mir Owner

We were a little apprehensive to try Persian cuisine in a town with so many restaurants but we were pleasantly surprised. The food was very well prepared with a perfect mix of exotic spices. I enjoyed the lamb shank which was served over a bed of basmati rice which was one of the best meals I have ever had. Our... More

This restaurant has so many rave reviews but I cannot resist adding another. We only went there for one dinner because we put it off to the end of our stay. Next year there will be more dinners! I had a Persian specialty, a lamb shank that fell off the bone and swam in the most delicious gravy, and my... More

Went there twice during a ten day stay in Naples. The Pomegranate encrusted Salmon was truly outstanding. Their starters are big- share them. Or two or three and make a meal out of them.

A must try in Naples, FL. If you don't know what Persian food is - this is a great way to learn. Depth of spices. Wonderful combinations. Their legume soup is amazing. Try it. I swear you will like it. And the pomegranate and feta salad was delicious. And the baklava! Oh the baklava!

After reading all the positive reviews we where somewhat disappointed. The food was quite good but some of it cold. We should have sent it back to kitchen but did not, which is our mistake. We where there before 6 PM and had the dishes from the special menu. Maybe the standard for regular items is better. In addition, the... More

My wife and I had always wanted to try this Persian based restaurant - one that is so uniquely different than any other establishment in the region. We had heard good reviews, when it was on U.S. 41 and those reviews obviously have carried forward with their move to an excellent location on 5th street in Naples. We each started... More

Tried this restaurant in an effort to find something a little different. Our entire party was delighted. Tabrizi chicken with apricot sauce was subtle and delicious. Excellent paella and the pomegranate glazed salmon was also a hit. Very attentive service and very nice atmosphere.

We went to Bha! Bha! for dinner on Saturday night in Naples FL. What a beautiful restaurant, very visually pleasing! We had to go early because of movie tickets and we were pleasantly surprised to find out that there is an early bird special going on between 5-6:00. They had a few nice items on the special menu that we... More
