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

If you've never had Persian food then don't fret. This is the place for you. You'll be asking yourself "where has this been my whole life?" I have to say, I had heard good things, but was completely blown away by the quality of food and intense flavors. Definitely the best food we've had in Naples. I would recommend starting... More

Welcoming service began a meal of 10 different, shared family style, appetizers. 12 hour Lamb, meat balls, multiple salads, beets, and 4 different desserts, shared among all the guests. All of us went home full and fully sated.

yes, I am a Foodie! This evening was excellent! New flavors. New ingredients. Creative chef. Wonderful service. New cuisine experience for me. Beet and pear salad. The best! Lamb shank. Lamb medallions. Wow! Do not miss baklava (very unusual) and Persian ice cream. Please skip Turkish coffee (if you haven't had it, you will hate it). Valet parking behind building.

Rating would have been higher except for some of the service. First heater did not work and they actually had to run out for propane, that is not prepared for cooler weather and eating outside. Ordered off the 15 dollar special entree menu. Lots of lamb to choose from. My husband had to return to the car but they dropped... More

Maybe we are spoiled by all the great food in the NYC, New Haven, Boston area where we live and travel, but this place was just unimpressive. Food was fine but nothing special. It was also overpriced for what it was. We went based on NYTimes 36 Hours in Naples recommendation, but sadly, it didn't live up to our expectations.

Went to Bha Bha for the first time tonight. Made a reservation. The hostess brings us to a small area in the back where no one was seated near the serving area and kitchen. I asked to be seated at a different table seeing that most of the tables were empty. We went there for the early dinner, they had... More

Fantastic food and outstanding service. Persian Lamb was flavorful and the. Shrimp with apricot and ginger was outstanding (even if it wasn't a true Persian dish)! We wil definitely go back the Bha Bha in the future.

I ate five or six dinners in Naples, but this is probably the only one worth reviewing. Not that the others were bad, just not memorable. Bah Bah is different. Very elegant with excellent food. And the service was even better. If you are looking for something different from the endless white-bread sameness of Naples, give it a try.
