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

Fantastic meal, lots of interesting choices.

The reviews prompted us to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The tapenade appetizer was the best we've ever had. I had the Spicy Fermini beef and my wife had the salmon on lentils. Both were prepared to perfection. Finished with the balaclava which was one... read more

We so enjoyed Bha Bha Bistro on a recent outing to Naples. We had researched several places and settled on Bha Bha because the reviews were so good, and because the reviews for our other choice, Bleu Provence, a recommendation by a friend, were of the "used to be better" kind. Thinking that Bleu Provence had maybe passed its zenith,... More

My wife made the decision to visit this restaurant because she loves lamb. We had to be careful what we chose to eat because I'm allergic to curry spices such as cumin and cardamon. I ordered a beef kebab and my wife ordered a lamb kebab. Each dish came with rice and grilled vegetables. The portions of meat were generous.... More

This was our first time here and we cannot believe what we've been missing. We tried the special koreshes of slow cooked plum lamb and the house specialty of lamb shank...the best every. We will definitely be back to try many of the others options from the grill.

We enjoyed wonderfully exotic and tasty food at Bha Bha Bistro. Difficult to get into though - it took several attempts to get a reservation, and they don't take walk-ins. Worth going!

The Persian food at Bha Bha is unique and delightful. Although not inexpensive, it is a treat every time I have visited which has been from the very beginning when the restaurant opened. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive even when the restaurant is full. The food is consistently good and the flavors of the dishes are multi-... More

If you have never had Persian food. I strongly recommend BhaBha - which I discovered means yum yum in their language lol. It truly is Yumyum! Their mixed kebabs were truly a delicacy getting to sample all the meats in one dish is magic in your mouth my personal favorites were the beef kebabs that literally melt in your mouth... More

My niece and I were thrilled to get seats at the bar on a busy Saturday night to enjoy our mini family reunion and this right-up-our-alley restaurant. Obviously, mostly couples dining on this Saturday night, but we were very comfortable at the bar (and glad I wasn't able to get reservations for dining at a table). Nice decor, comfortable atmosphere... More
