Bha! Bha! Is an innovative Persian bistro. A chic south Florida Persian inspired and influenced BISTRO. The interior is very sharp and elegant,.. 5Th avenue chic yet with some Persian touches. It "resembles a Persian jewel box". It features classic Persian food as well as Persian fusion food. I have always billed it as that. In fact the word "INNOVATIVE" appears on our marquis and websites and other various advertisements; yes, even on this very site. Popular classic items such the authentic Ghorme Sabzi, Fesenjune, Bademjune, Halleem and Kashke` Bademjune , Aash soup and all Chelo kabobs are all present on the menu. More than half of the menu is dedicated to other various fusion food: shrimp, fresh fish, seafood, couscous, paella etc......Innovative techniques with Persian inspirations. The menu price range is in line with our neighboring restaurants here in downtown Naples. This is a Bon Appetit recommended and James Beard recognized restaurant. 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 includes many dishes on my menu that perhaps are not seen or recognized in a typical Persian restaurant. Although all the classic Persian ingredients like pomegranates, mint, saffron, rose water, turmeric, cardamom, pistachios, basmati rice, etc...Are used here, 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 27 years. Eagerly welcoming you. Michael Mir, exec. Chef/Owner

Our favourite restaurant in Naples

Went back here twice as it was so nice. The 8-year old loved the chicken kebab with rice and we had 2 absolutely stunning meals. Beautifully spiced Persian food - aromatic rather than spicy - real comfort food, and lovely wine too. Definitely worth a try.

If you're looking for somewhere different to eat while in Naples and down on 5th Avenue, check out Bha Bha. Really delicious kabobs and easy walking distance from the public parking decks. You really can't go wrong with anything you choose there.

Lovely restaurant, great, professional service, superb location and great food. Mango garlic shrimp was a huger hit as was the Mediterranean salad, beef medallions and ginger-apricot tamarind lamb. Look forward to going back.

As a global business traveler, I eat out a lot. I see a lot of similar restaurants with very mediocre menus. Bha! Bha! is not mediocre and is a hidden jewel in the Naples Restaurant Scene! The food is french, the flavors robust and the service impeccable. Get adventurous and do yourself a favor. Try this gem and prepare to... More

Such a lovely restaurant with sidewalk seating on 5th Ave in charming Old Naples and a luxurious dining area inside! The service here was impeccable, and the food was delicious! We tried the hummus, the lamb special of the night, the apricot shrimp, and the mixed kabob platter. All were outstanding!
