I don't typically write bad reviews, but I was very excited about trying Bha Bha and was pretty let down. It might just come down to preference so I recommend you try it and develop your own opinion. The ambience is good, staff followed Covid protocols I just was not impressed with the food or service unfortunately.

The last time I had Bha Bha was when they were at the Pavilion location and I had mixed feelings, but felt I had to give it another try due to the overwhelming good reviews. I had the meatballs appetizer and the ginger shrimp entree. The meatballs were quite bland with a hint of mint, but the sauce was all right. I just expected more. I was not a fan of the presentation for the shrimp especially priced at $35.00. The portion of shrimp was also small compared to the fruit and vegetables that came with the meal. I would have said something to the waiter, but no staff checked in with us during the entire meal. My partner liked her meal, but agreed that it was overpriced in her opinion.

To the restaurant's credit the food came quickly and the waiter took our order quickly. I would say we were in and out within 40 minutes. We were seated on time.

I would say try it yourselves with an open mind. It might come down to preference and taste, but I have eaten at Persian restaurants before (definitely not an expert) and I unfortunately left disappointed.

My brother spent two years in The Peace Corps stationed in Iran in the late 1960s. He joined my wife and me for a delicious and authentic Persian dinner the other night. Bha Bha not only serves a wonderful dinner in a beautiful setting, but the professional and helpful waitstaff was a delight and helped make for a special evening. The owner stopped by to chat about life in Iran with my brother. They had an in-depth conversation about living in Iran when our two countries were allies. It is so very sad to see what has happened over the past 50 years.
Bha Bha is an amazing restaurant with a great menu. This is a gem and if you are looking for a special place to enjoy a meal in Naples, look no further.

There were 4 of us and we all loved our food. Every dish was unbelievably tasty. The combination of spices and fruits and different sauces was amazing. It was unlike any Persian restaurant we encountered. A place not to be missed if in Naples. I would go back again and again.

First time back since the pandemic. They handle outside dining perfectly and the indoor tables were nicely spaced and windows wide open for a pleasant Naples breeze. Menu has changed a bit. Classics are still there, and as good as always. Service is gracious. Great experience!

If you want to be seated outside you have to request when booking on Open Table. I didn't see the option and was very disappointed we couldn't be seated outside even though there appeared to be 4 tables available...the food was great as was the service.

Soup and appetizers were very good; however, there was a hiccup with the entrees. Three of us ordered the lamb chops medium rare—they came medium. This can be overlooked at lesser restaurants, but at Bha Bha I expected better.

First visit to this delightful restaurant after numerous recommendations around town. As locals, we are always looking for places to both discover for ourselves and pass along as hidden gems to others. This was an overall outstanding result on both accounts. The only element that was slightly aggravating was that I had called earlier in the day to speak with someone about the placement of our table in the restaurant. We do not prefer to be near the front of the restaurant if it can be helped. I was assured that our table was seated 2/3 of the way back away from the door. However, when we arrived, we were seated at a table directly next to the host stand. I completely understand that sometimes last minute changes to a floor plan dictate necessary changes to a reservation’s plotted seating; given that we had expressly asked not to be seated near the front, I had hoped a restaurant of this caliber would make a note of that. Nonetheless, we will be back soon, and if all else holds true, often.
