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

“Great Valentines night dinner”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Spotted Bha! Bha! while strolling 5th Ave South one evening and decided to book for St. Valentines night. The restaurant was full and really buzzing - good atmosphere.
Service was charming, attentive and prompt and the excellent "Persian" food was very well presented and tasty.
With cocktails and wine it came to $195 (excl. tip) for two.
Great meal, great evening!

“A nice stop for a different flavor”
Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

Bha Bha is a pleasant change of pace in dining. The new location is small and "cozy." They need to manage their reservations better as we waited 1/2 hour past our reserved time for a table. The food is well-prepared and different, but not so exotic as to be off-putting. You should give it a try.

“One of our best restaurant experiences anywhere.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Outstanding restaurant. Very welcoming staff. You must try the lemongrass martini - very smooth and probably the best drink we have ever had. Exceptional food, including pomegranate salmon with lentils and ginger apricot shrimp with basmati rice. And, no one else makes lentils and rice like these. Even the balkava is outstanding, made milder with pistachios instead of walnuts,and not dripping with heavy honey like everyone else's. We will certainly go back whenever we get back to Naples.

“Wonderful Persian food”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was my first visit to Bha Bha in its new location and everything surpassed expectation. The only negative is that my friend and I were seated near the kitchen when there were many open tables for two. Other than that, the food was very good and the service efficient.
