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

My husband and I recently met another couple here for an evening out and it was an amazing experience from start to finish! Began with a cocktail at the bar and later moved to a comfy sofa dining area. I had salmon and he had lamb and everything was delicious and beautifully plated. Service was prompt and very professional. The... More

You'll be wowed as soon as you walk thru the door! Bha bha is beautifully decorated and very inviting. Next we were greeted right away by a gracious host and soon there after the owner Michael. Our server Mario was like an old friend who welcomed us and made great recommendations which we savored. Each bite left us saying wow!... More

Asked my server Jeff for menu suggestions since I'm not familiar with Persian cuisine. He suggested an appetizer that was like babaghanoush. I can't remember the exact name, it was devine. For an entree I had Ginger apricot shrimp and my companion had the lamb shank. We loved all of it. The decor is inviting and the service was impeccable.... More

Started wth the friendly greeting, helpful waitress and totally different menu, this was a delightful experience. Strongly recommend the lamb shank and apricot shrimp. The portions were so generous that we did not sample the appetizers and desserts. This is a class restaurant. Do not miss, when in Naples.

It was my husband's birthday and we were in Naples. I wanted something new and different and we found Bha! Bha! Wow. The food was awesome. Close enough to Mediterranean food to be familiar but different enough to be an experience. The staff were nice and great with explaining the options. Also, the drinks were pretty good.

I'm not a fan of middle-eastern food, but I could appreciate that the food here was well-prepared, and if these are flavors you like then you will love this place. We ordered an appetizer which was topped with cubed eggplant, which was the best preparation of eggplant I have ever had in my life. The baklava was also a highlight... More
