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

Visiting Naples to see the real estate market vibe and found this wonderful Persian restaurant. We ate all small plates of eggplant, meatballs in a spicy sauce and a cheese plate with lots of fun additions. The chef has a great menu that will be fun to explore in future visits.

We were last at Bha Bha's 4 years ago when it was in a strip mall in Bonita Springs. This location is a vast improvement, right in the heart of things in Naples. And, if possible, the ambiance, service and food all seemed to be much better. We started with the Masto-Khyiar Starter, which proved to be diced cucumbers in... More

My husband had the lamb and the sauce the lamb was cooked in was cooked for 12 hours and the flavor was incredible! We scooped the extra sauce on our rice so we wouldn't waste a... More

This restaurant serves very inspired middle-eastern food. Service is excellent. We had a lamb dish and a fish dish, both were very good. Hummus and salads were also good.

We arrived late so we did not try the $15 lamb feast, we ordered "Soltani Kabob-one skew", "Koobideh Kebob-two skew", "Lamb Shish Kebob-one skew" without any wine or appetizer the bill came with $70, way much more the value of the presented portion. We do see the price in the menu but we do not know how large is the... More

We hardly ever visit a restaurant abroad twice, but now we did. My wife is a well known Belgian cook, and she also was very enthousiastic. The food, the ambiance, the music, the service... top.
