Great food and service. We always order a bunch of appetizers to share for our meal. Recommend the pomegranate and pistachio salad, the pistachio lamb meatballs and the eggplant and artichoke gratin. The pear napolean dessert is outstanding.

We We’re celebrating our anniversary and arrived early, being seated immediately. Hostess was very friendly, our Waitress Daniela was informative, kind, and checked with us often. Food arrived and was an excellent presentation, very aromatic and flavorful with balanced spices. The lamb meatball appetizer had a bit too much sauce yet delicious. The eggplant appetizer, also very delicious. The kabobs were delicious, as was the ginger shrimp. Will be back with friends for another taste of the delicious food.

We celebrated our birthdays and had extraordinary service snd food. The hostess seated us quickly at a nice booth table. We enjoyed the gravlax and beet salad appetizers which were both delicious.The spicy seafood koresh and flash fried eggplant for our entrees were great. The staff gave us a complementary dessert and cocktail for our birthday celebration which made the evening even more special. Bha Bha is definitely true gem on 5th Ave.

Visited Bha! Bha! because of the great reviews and are so happy we did. Open Table made our reservations quick and easy and the restaurant certainly lived up to the five star ratings. Our food was exception and plentiful and our server, Chayan, made the evening even more special. The restaurant is warm, inviting and upscale. Already looking forward to our next visit!

One of my most favorite restaurants in Naples, Florida. The food is absolutely the best!! My waiter Bobbie should get employee of the month. He was very attentive from beginning to end of the great dining experience. All of his recommendations were top notch.

One of our all time favorite restaurants anywhere. Food is exceptional, flavors are out of this world good. Service is top notch, never pushy, always en pointe. Seating outside brings a lively addition to the experience. Inside tables are a delightful transport to an aroma filled room busy with caretakers and foodies enjoying the bha! bha! experience.

After a slow start on service, attention to us improved. It was a cool evening so we were offered an just inside the door table. OK for awhile but then in the rush of things as folks checked in with the hostess's immediately in front of us. Our waiter offered very good recommendations. A memorable evening.

Service great; food great ;will be back.
But we always bring great wine and share it with the wait staff. Very disappointed to be charged full corkage fee for two bottles of wine. Most places don't charge corkage fee when sharing with the staff.

Thank you so very much for your patronage & your kind input. Operating a small boutique restaurant during these tough times is extremely difficult & very expensive. Among hidden operating costs, revenue from wine sales could really be salvation for survival whether it’s a corkage fee or the marked-up price. Our beverage director Jeff works hard to create an outstanding boutique list. I very much encourage you to give us the pleasure serving you our wines instead. Thanks million MM owner

We sat outside because the tables inside were too close together in our opinion and with COVID, we weren't taking any chances. The top of 5th is a little loud with the cars and people walking by, but it turned out to be a lovely evening. Food was outstanding - as always and service was very good. bha! bha! continues to earn the coveted "My favorite restaurant in Naples" badge of honor.

Without a doubt the best Hummus ever. I always order it here. The dinner was delicious, Soltani Kabob skewers of barg & koobideh kabob with chargrilled vegetables. We were at the bar and shared a dinner which was split for us in the kitchen. So appreciated.
Michelle the bartender/server was very attentive as was one of the managers. Never got his name but he also checked in with us.

So happy they are back. I live here in Naples and missed them while they were closed.

This is a very pleasant but expensive restaurant. Recently they made changes in seating arrangement to make it more safe in terms of social distancing. We were lucky to reserve table else usually this is very busy restaurant. I would recommend indoor seating to avoid outdoor close to street experience. The service was excellent. Our server gave ample time to go through menu before make our selection. He recommended items from the menu as well which were good. We tried Hummus which came with Pita Bread, Spicy Chicken Tabrizi, Koobideh Kabob. Chicken was okayish but the but the kabob were tasty and tender. The rice is absolutely fabulous. It just taste great as is. We also tried persian ice cream which was really good. You won't find these flavors in any store except indian groceries. I wish they would have offered Pita Bread with hummus complementary considering this is the iconic food and the prices they have for other menu. This would be just like Indian restaurants offers complementary Papad to begin with. Paying 15 odd dollars for hummus doesn't justify. Also I won't recommend to get any drinks beacuse it won't pair well with any of the food in general.

Beautifully decorated restaurant. The food was delisted. Has the eggplant and artichoke appetizer. We fought over who was going to finish it. Dinner was good with many options. Lamb is their specialty, I don’t like lamb. My dad had the lamb chops, I tried a piece and it was tasty. Drink prices were reasonable.

We had a delightful meal at bah! Bah! On Christmas evening. The food is spectacular and frankly a nice diversion from the usual holiday prime rib or whatever. I had the classic lamb shank dinner as did a friend and we both could not have loved it more. The spices, the tenderness of the meat are amazing. One of our party got the special lamb shank dinner that night and raved about it; my husband got the three pork chop dinner special and couldn’t get enough of it. Great evening.....service excellent.....a little noisy near the end but a lot of people looking for a fun, enjoyable Christmas evening. Would definitely recommend to anyone that likes different, interesting, delicious food!
