Welcome to bha! bha! persian bistro on the contemporary Royal Road that is Fifth Avenue South, Naples FL. With his new boutique bistro Michael Mir, (Executive Chef and Owner), will take you to a place where warm desert moonlight glows upon the sands, creates mystical illusions in far away dunes, and magically gives life to every jewel in it’s path. Silk fabrics entice the touch. World music is heard in the background. Aromas of delicate fragrant spices, sweetness in the air of simmering fruits, and the perfume of jasmine from the garden seduce you. Bold flavors from fresh meats, poultry and fish embrace the palate and soothe it with delicate strokes of the perfect union of flavors.

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to and as a New Yorker I’ve been to some of the best. Keep up the good work. Outstanding!

We enjoyed a creative appetizer and 3 lamb meals and desserts. The lamb dish with plums was the more tasty & interesting one. We liked the well-balanced and tasty desserts as they were not as sweet as we had expected. Our waiter was experienced and very accommodating & not intrusive - very pleasant! So we enjoyed a nice evening, great dinner and a soft lit ambiance as we area avoiding restaurants with loud music and harsh lighting.

I heard such good things about this place so we had to try it. I went here with a true Persian person who knows her Kabob. She said it was good but could have been seasoned a little more and it was not cooked enough and had to be sent back to bring it to medium. But it was tasty but I think I have had better. The price was a little high for what you get as well. I would try it again but I would give it a 7 out of 10.

I travel a lot and it was one of the best meals I've ever had, anywhere. If you like lamb, they really know how to cook lamb. It's amazing and I will be back, as there were several items on the menu I want to try.

A modern take on classic Persian cuisine, BHA BHA (which means great food - yum!!), offers delicious, flavorful food in an elegant, cool relaxed modern setting. They have a great selection of appetizers and both modern and more traditional entrees - everything we ordered was delicious! The staff was friendly and answered all questions and made good recommendations. The Persian ice-cream made of pistachios, saffron and a tinge of rosewater was one of the best flavors that I have ever tasted and the baklava was delicious too!

Always a favorite for my husband and me.
We love to start with the Saffron Lemongrass Martini...delicious!
We followed with the trio starter, then shared the lamb meatballs and the pomegranate salad.
The classic slow cooked lamb shank is perfection but the plum lamb is to die for...we share this too.
We never leave disappointed.

Bha Bha's never disappoints! Food was great, and Chef/Owner Michael Mir took time to visit with us at our table which was very interesting. So nice to go to a restaurant where you can talk and hear each other. If you haven't tried this restaurant, you must go. Not the same old fish and steak as every other restaurant. Delicious Mediterranean food, fresh and healthy.
Our favorite place in Naples.

We have been going to this restaurant for over ten years whenever we are in Naples. The food is always delicious, healthy, and truly different. We have never had anything that was less than excellent. The service is friendly and professional and the ambiance is pleasant as well.

What a pleasant surprise !!!
I was kind of wondering why this restaurant was packed... then we ordered an eggplant and artichoke appetizer followed by a Ginger Apricot Shrimp dish... both were "out of this world"...
it is definitely worth the experience and the price !!!

One of the best meals we have ever head. The eggplant appetizer (flash fried) was absolutely incredible, along with our main courses of mixed kebabs and lamb shank. We had a seat on the the patio behind the bar, so it was tucked away from the busy street which was really nice. Service was great. Can't wait to visit Naples again to eat here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our night out with friends at Bha Bha Persian Bistro. The variety of dishes as well as the house specials were authentic and everything we tried was delicious. The service was also outstanding. Our server was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The cuisine combines some contrasting flavors that are surprising and savory at the same time. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and the prices are moderate for 5th Avenue South in Naples.

Been wanting to try this restaurant for ten years now. Wish I would have sooner. The Lamb Osso Bucco, probably the best I've ever had......and coming from a North End Boston homey that should say tons. Service staff was attentive to every measure, without being annoying every second. The overall ambiance was pleasant because it is one of the few restaurants left that you can actually hear everyone seated with you. Noise level perfect. Also try out the mixed Kabob Grill, another great dish. Will be going back soon for the Persian Delights.

Consistently Consistent!

We have been going to Bha Bha for the better part of a decade and have always found both the service and food to be consistently excellent. Love the Aash soup as an appetizer together with the hummus. The lamb dishes are always excellent as well as the spicy Kermani beef and the spicy Tabrizi Apricot chicken. All in all I would give them two enthusiastic thumbs up!

The combination of spices was exquisite, providing for a really unique -- and delicious -- dining experience. I'll definitely return next time I'm in Naples.
