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

“Bha! Far the best!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Just finished a lovely dinner at Bha! Bha! in Naples, FL. My husband and I have never experienced Persian cuisine, and decided to venture out of our comfort zone. We were pleasantly surprised! The food was out of this world! We were not terribly hungry but we ordered three appetizers which we thought would give us the diversity of taste we were searching for. We tried the panier lavash, flash fried eggplant and lamb meatballs. All were incredible and left us extremely full! We asked our waiter, Chayan, (who was gracious and respected our wishes) to stagger the appetizers so we only had one at a time. He was attentive and eager to assist us throughout. The owner of the restaurant also visited our table to ensure we were satisfied, a simple gesture which is often overlooked today. We are only here for a short weekend but are planning our next visit already! Highly recommended!!

“Excellent meal - uk-sized sensible portions too!”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Beautiful restaurant and great atmosphere on Naples 5th avenue south. We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. The service was excellent and both the food and wine fully met expectations. Having travelled to naples from a week in Orlando where portion sizes can be quantity over quality, this was much closer to a UK sized portion, beautifully cooked and seasoned.

“Excellent dinner”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Went here for our 12th anniversary dinner. The decor is pretty and colorful but not overwhelming. We had the crispy lavash for an appetizer and it was tasty and a good way to start the evening. Our entrees were the shireen polo with char-grilled chicken and ginger apricot shrimp which were delicious. Dessert was an almond custard which was amazing. The service was attentive and professional. We would definitely return here on future trips to Naples.
