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

A rare find. non-chain owned with exceptional food,service,and décor. A very unusual menu with many unfamiliar dishes, but very helpful and informed servers to guide your selections. It is hard to recommend any one dish since having dined there the last five times, each time ordering different items, and saying this is the best ever. The tastes of each dish... More

We are trying different restaurants in Naples and chose Bha Bha on a friend's recommendation and the comments on Trip Advisor. Four of us dined on a Friday night. We made reservations and arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. The evening started with wine and cocktails (Manhattans) that were excellent. We then shared a serving of hummus that...

Two couples for dinner on a Monday night at 7PM. Seated immediately. Served by Cayan, a knowledgeable, personable, happy waiter. He took the drink order and announced the specials. This was our first time in Bha! Bha! and the menu has a lot on it. After some study, we chose Kashke Bademjun (flash fried eggplants) – fabulous; spinach salad (with... More

We had a great dinner at Bha Bha Bistro. It is on 5th Avenue in Naples. We were just in town for one night, and were wandering around looking for someplace to eat. There are a LOT of Italian restaurants in this area...I'm sure many of them are fine, but we didn't really feel like Italian and we were thinking... More

We have traveled to Naples for years and have walked by Bha Bha dozens of times, but Persian food never sounded as good as the fresh Gulf Snapper and Grouper so prevalent. This trip we were walking and noted the menu out front and checked reviews on line and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We... More

The food is Persian and was very different to the the normal food on offer in this area. The staff were very polite and the service was fast and efficient. Be warned though the portions are large. We had a starter each and a main between us. It would have been too much if we had had a main each.

If you like lamb which I love the flavors were fabulous we have traveled to many places this was the best I have ever had. I had a dessert with filo dough and apple that was delicious. We will be going back to Naples and this will be our first stop.

The food NEVER disappoints! Meals are generous, creative and beautifully presented. I'm not a huge fan of martinis, but theirs are an absolute treat! Haha, a little Vodka humor. The service is fantastic as well. We've only been served by one waiter, just by luck, Geoff I believe. Helpful, and pleasant always, I am 2 visits away from friending him... More
