Description: This is my 3rd and final restaurant. I relocated from North Naples after a 15 year successful run. I wanted this interior to be very sharp, elegant, 5th avenue chic yet with some Persian touches. it "resembles a Persian jewel box". I updated my menu and am continuing my innovative and classic Persian creations. The range is varied from somehow comfortable, simple and wholesome food to sophisticated and mutli level flavors ready to be enjoyed by all culinary food lovers. Bha! Bha! is an innovative Persian bistro. A Persian influenced (since I was born there, but raised in Maryland and Florida) and a chic south Florida inspired BISTRO.I have always billed it as that. In fact the word "INNOVATIVE" appears our marquis, website and various advertisements, even on this very site.Although many of the classic items such the authentic Ghorme Sabzi, Fesenjune, Halleem, Bademjune, Kashke` Bademjune , Aash and Chelo kabob Koobideh, or Barg are present on the menu; more than half of the menu is dedicated to various fusions, innovations and techniques with other Persian inspirations. The menu price range is in line with our neighboring restaurants. We try to avoid to conform to the misconception of being: "ethnic= cheap =spicy".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 are many dishes on my menu that perhaps are not seen or recognized in a typical Persian restaurant. Yet, all the classic Persian ingredients like pomegranates, mint, saffron, rose water, cardamom, pistachios basmati rice etc. are all present; 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 25 years. Eagerly welcoming you Michael Mir Owner

We hadn't been back to Naples in a number of years so before we headed down, we searched the internet for Bha Bha Persian in North Naples (their old location and where we had discovered them) and were disappointed we couldn't find it. We were thrilled a few minutes later when we found they had moved to their 5th Ave... More

I love this restaurant. The service is top notch and the food choices are excellent. The servers are always well versed in what's on the menu and make great recommendations. I love the atmosphere and it's very handy to get in and out of as it's at the top of 5th Avenue. I've been many times and it's always a... More

Outstanding food. Ambience and service were excellent. When we made the reservation we expected a normal experience but when we tasted the Mediterranean salad as our first course we knew we were in for a special treat. We both had one of the lamb dishes, lamb and mushrooms and lamb and eggplant. Like the salad, the ingredients were fresh and... More

If you're in the mood for something just a little different, then this is the place to go. Probably one of the best meals I have had anywhere. Great service ... an outstanding wine list ... and beautiful ambiance. Don't be put off by the "Persian" in its name - the food is extraordinary, and the menu is full of... More

We were in Naples for a conference and found bha! bha! while visiting the downtown area. We sat outside and our server, Chayen was very attentive and personable. The food was excellent, very rich with many spices. We nada couple of appetizers, can't remember the names but one was a lamb meatball with tamarind and pomegranate-very tasty! For an entree... More

Naples, FL, has lots of restaurants, many on Fifth Avenue. We passed Bha Bha several times since moving here two years ago, and finally ate there Oct 2 during its LambFest. One of the best meals we've had! Our server was Chayan, pleasant, efficient, helpful. Try the lemongrass martini; it packs a kick. Prices are in keeping with Naples' upscale... More

We choose Bha Bha for our romantic anniversary dinner, we could not have done better. There were so many temptations on the menu that we wanted to order one of each! We had lovely watermelon salad with feta for first course as well as curry shrimp with mango - so good! For main course we tried mixed grill and salmon.... More

From the moment we were greeted by the helpful and cheerful hostess, until we left, it was apparent that all personnel here aim to please. Geoff, our attentive and helpful waiter is far more sophisticated than most waiters in other restaurants. He knows food, and knows the menu inside out. His recommendations were spot on.
