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

It doesn't. But it should. And you should probably go here when in Naples. Persian cuisine, very flavourful, very different, and very classy. Great atmosphere, convenient 5th Avenue Location, excellent staff. We had a variety of things: pomegranate/pistachio spinach salad, the pistachio meatballs, the mango/garlic shrimp, and we split the main course of eggplant and chicken curry. All were amazing, except the meatballs which were only good. Unfortunately we did not heed the advice of a wise Trip Advisor contributor who suggested going early in your trip so you can continue going back every evening. There were at least six other things on the menu I wanted to try but I did not in the interest of maintaining a safe body mass index. This place is not cheap but at the same time dinner for two with one us having a glass of wine came to $80 plus tip, and it was worth it. Oh, and in case you were wondering if they have grape leaves, they do not.

We were fans of this restaurant before it moved to 5th Avenue. Now that it is closer, we eat there regularly. Only really good ethnic food in Olde Naples. Beautifully spiced (but not hot) and lovely presentation. Favorites are the flash fried eggplant, ginger mango shrimp and the braised lamb shank. Shish kebabs very good and provide an excellent choice for the non-adventurous eater. Wonderful owner who checks with every table to make sure you are thoroughly enjoying your meal. Highly, highly recommend!

In a city where there are too many chain restaurants, Bha! Bha! (meaning very good) stands out and is very, very good. The delicate flavors of the Persian cooking and the professional service make this a very fine restaurant. Highly recommend everything!

Visited last evening for a meal & were thrilled with the quality of the food. Hummus was outstanding…..very light & not overpowered with garlic. Salmon was superb & the lamb was so tender it would melt in your mouth. Server was attentive & very polite. Will definitely go back.
