Description: 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

went to the original restaurant in Park Shore a few years back and meant to return so glad it is now more conveniently situated in downtown Naples on fifth avenue. The spices used are great, not overdone, with the meat perfectly cooked. Even the salads are a must to try. The martinis were unusual yet very addictive. The puddings are... More

The Mango Garlic Shrimp appetizer was very good. We had the Braised Lamb Shanks “Ghormeh Sabzi” which was great but my favorite was the Spicy Kermani Beef. Our server, Jeff, was fantastic. We had never tried persian food and he was very helpful. We loved the service, the ambiance and the food. Can't wait to go back again.

Great setting on 5th Ave in Naples. Traditional Persian fare with the owners individualistic twist. Every dish we have tried over 4 visits has been truly memorable- lamb, chicken, beef and fish. No wonder it was written up in the New York Times recently. His lamb is just so tender I salivate as I write this!

Where to begin? With the Farsi cheese and herb plate and its dates and olives, or the wonderful pomegranate and pistachio salad?? Also exceptional were the mixed grill kabob and the Spicy Kermani Beef with its creamy saffron and tomato sauce (plus the cooling cucumber yogurt). We managed to restrain my husband from picking up the bone in his braised... More

The best Salmon I ever had. The best Limoncello Martini in town, The only little bad thing is the first booth avoid them really not comfortable... But since the food and the service is was excellent we forgot about that little thing.

tried the early bird meal. Felt,I'd,they were good at that then the regulR menu would be great. Pleasantly surprised by the $15. Entree. Still,had a $12. Salad, drinks and dessert.,so the deal became a $100.00 dinner. It was good. Will try the regular menu next time. They must disallow people talking on cell phones at table. These self absorbed clients... More

Bha Bha is now offering a $15 special of 7 selections before about 5:45 pm. 3 include lamb. A white and red wine are offered at $5. My red merlot was light and pleasant; my wife enjoyed both glasses of the white. If I owned the restaurant I would be a little more generous on the pours (my only "complaint").... More
