Stunning decor, friendly and efficient service and great food. The martinis are delicious, especially the lemongrass and saffron one.

There is another restaurant in planet earth where I could eat every day of my life. Shaya in New Orleans, Dovetail in New York for a special evening once a week and Bha Bha for every day, simple, 5* meals served by Fernando! We started with appetizers...we had the Man Gar Shrimp, the Lamb balls, the Heleem Bademnjun and the... More

The food was absolutely delicious, perfectly spicy. The beer selection was poor at best, but the wine list was good. Location is close to all the shopping. This dinner was a little pricey but totally worth it.

Went for dinner with my husband and a friend. We were not disappointed at all. The food was amazing and the wait staff were so friendly and accomodating. My friend was late, but they left us sit at the bar with no pressure about being way past our reservation time. My salmon was awesome! My husband is a big fan... More

Bha a Bha is a small restaurant on Naples 5th Ave with a great ambiance and excellent Persian fare. The unique menu has a great selection of chicken,lamb, beef, seafood items complemented with greasy vegtables. They have outside dining and bar seating. Our favorite dishes we enjoyed were the spicy seafood koresh and kabobs.

This was our first taste of Persian food and I learned that Bha! means delicious. It certainly is. We look forward to going there again.

OK so we read all of the TripAdvisor reviews and decided this would be the place for us after a nice happy hour in Naples. I have to say it was really, really Average. A nice welcome, a nice table, menu looks good but it's about as authentically Persian as me! Drinks were OK and reasonably priced. We looked at... More

Dear guest: Thank you for your visit. I am very sorry about your disappointment. Bha! Bha! Bistro is an innovative as well as a classic Persian bistro.

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
