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

Persian fusion

How many restaurants serve salmon with a pomegranate sauce? Delicious. Wine is good too, host knows how to recommend good wine. Some nice Americanized Persian food. Delicious.

We had a great dinner over here. The lady who lead us to the table was very nice and friendly and the waiter as well. He gave us nice recommendations which were very good.

Another fine meal at Bha! Bha! Bistro in Naples. Went with the wife and two friends on a Sunday evening. We shared Flash Fried Eggplant (better each time we have it), the Classic Hummus (clean, crisp taste), and a special that day, the crispy Lavash with eggplant, described as bruschetta (excellent – sorry I can’t remember everything else in the...

Our handsome Turkish waiter Chywan guided us through delightful selections of starters and entrees, which four of us shared. Beautifully presented, wonderful food.

Really delicious food and excellent service. Very different menu to other restaurants in the area. I have to be honest, I wasn't familiar with many items on the menu but everything we had was superb! Well worth a visit, would highly recommend it. We preferred seating outside although the decor inside is lovely.

Probably the only eatery of its kind. Persian/Iranian food served with fine dining and a big bill! Experience is good and something out of the box to eat. I like.

This is a great little restaurant on Fifth Ave. The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. We brought a large group with two children and they were very accommodating. They do not have a kids menu but they make a scaled down version of the kebab dinners for children. The hummus was the best I've ever tasted. Seafood... More

My daughter and I recently dined at Bha Bha and thoroughly enjoyed our visit from the cocktails to the Turkish coffee. Delicious food, great service, refined decor, and superb service from Jeff. Can't wait to return! Both grilled and braised lamb dishes were fabulous.

This is not really a Persian restaurant, more a fusion restaurant with Persian dishes or influences. I had the Duck Fesenjune.... now normally Fesenjune is with chicken and it is more like a stew with rice. This dish is more like a good duck with accompanying sauces, but it was certainly an interesting dish.... just don't go there thinking you... More
