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

A friend has been raving about this place and we finally tried it. It was great. I had the lamb. My friend always has the salmon. Both were excellent. The atmosphere is really nice (they recently moved to Old Naples). This is a nice change from the strip mall restaurants in Naples.

We went to Bha! Bha! again after a wonderful dinner. We were excited to go back. We tried hard to have different dishes. We had the mango ginger martini and a classic martini to start, you have to try the mango martini!!! It is so good! We started with the hummus -best we have ever had- and the Crispy Rustic... More

Three of us went to Bha Bha Bistro for dinner and enjoyed a fantastic meal. We ate outside on a warm but not hot night and enjoyed watching the people (and traffic). The service was impeccable.

We had a great experience at this restaurant. Great service and a terrific menu that was supplemented with evening specials. Outdoor dining is an option as well. I recommend this restaurant highly.
