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

10/10 in every metric. Best food on Naples and outstanding service. Classy venue and friendly staff. Very clean restaurant. Literally the best salmon that I have ever had -- and always a collection of creative dishes. I have eaten here dozens of times and never been disappointed. Take my advice and give it a try.

Had a wonderful experience. The Plumb Lamb was fork tender and the flavor was intensely delicious. The braised lamb shank was equally rich in flavor. We also tried the fried eggplant appetizer, it was unlike anything I've had. The eggplant melted in my mouth. But the most wonderful surprise of the evening was the Persian Ice Cream - an incredible... More

Just finished a lovely dinner at Bha! Bha! in Naples, FL. My husband and I have never experienced Persian cuisine, and decided to venture out of our comfort zone. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was out of this world! We were not terribly hungry but we ordered three appetizers which we thought would give us the diversity of taste... More

Beautiful restaurant and great atmosphere on Naples 5th avenue south. We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. The service was excellent and both the food and wine fully met expectations. Having travelled to naples from a week in Orlando where portion sizes can be quantity over quality, this was much closer to... More

Went here for our 12th anniversary dinner. The decor is pretty and colorful but not overwhelming. We had the crispy lavash for an appetizer and it was tasty and a good way to start the evening. Our entrees were the shireen polo with char-grilled chicken and ginger apricot shrimp which were delicious. Dessert was an almond custard which was amazing.... More

Bha Bha is AMAZING!!! My Husband and I recently visited Bha Bha on our vacation to Naples. We love ethnic foods and decided that the opportunity to have Persian was too good to pass up. We were not disappointed. Our server Mario was the star if the evening, second only to the beautifully prepared and delicious food. We are major... More
