Persian
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.

Seated in a section separate from all other parties dining with many empty tables in the section with other diners. Food was great and the server (Peter) was very attentive, but other diners probably thought we had some communicable affliction being segregated.

Our first visit but won’t be our last. The staff treated us like family. The food was great with different flavors. The spices used made each dish. Nothing over powering but just enough to add that interesting flavor. When my wife says, “we have a new favorite restaurant “, kinda says it all.

I have been going to Bha Bha since the time they were located on Vanderbilt Bch. Rd. in Naples and since they moved to Fifth Ave in Naples it has only gotten better. It's recognized for its Persian Cooking and the raves from all the food critics so richly deserved.

From being seated to a comfortable table/booth to the end of our meal, our expierence couldn’t have been better. Our server Jeff(?) was knowlegeble and gave us just the right amount of attention.
Our starter of hummus was creamy with a wonderful flavor served with pita bread. We also had an assortment of olives with just a hint of spice. Just enough to enjoy the heat and bring out the taste of the olives.

The menu has a wide variety of their specialties and I can’t imagine anyone not finding something they would love. This is our third time going and will certainly return.

Food was unusual and delicious. We shared a the pomegranate and pistachio spinach salad which was outstanding and we also shared the spicy tabrizi apricot chicken — Yummmy!!!!! Our server was really nice. Unfortunately we had no room for dessert but I did enjoy good turkish coffee. Highly recommend this gem if you find yourself in the Naples area.

I have been a huge fan of this restaurant long before it relocated to Fifth Ave. in Naples, Fla. I have eaten here countless times and I think it is the best restaurant in Naples. Everything is great, but I particularly love the lamb shanks, the grilled vegetables, the quail, the almond custard dessert, the hummus and pita, the soup, the koresh dishes, the salads, practically everything that's on the menu. If you like Iranian food, this is the best. If you like great food, this is the best.

First visit loved the place, quality decor, food, and service. The only negative if any is portion size to large. Would prefer smaller portions so can take advantage of the desserts, not to be missed.

Bha bha is one of our go-to favorites for a higher end date night. The food is, simply, excellent. The service is always first rate, attentive without being intrusive. The decor isn't anything to get excited about but is quite nice, well maintained, clean, and provides a lovely intimacy. This is also one of the very few restaurants on Fifth that doesn't jam pack their dining room with extra tables in season. I've only ever felt great after paying the bill.

We are never disappointed in this restaurant. Never. From the knowledgeable wait staff to the ambience and of course the food, it's as perfect a dining experience as you'll find. The lamb dishes in particular are succulent and tender. The kebabs are perfectly grilled and seasoned. The salads are fresh, crisp, and layered with different flavors and textures (pomegranate seeds, green apple, spinach, feta cheese, toasted nuts, etc.). They are good about making substitutions, if there's an ingredient you don't like. Finish with a homemade dessert of pistachio ice cream or baklava!

Highly recommended for ANY occasion!

The food and service were outstanding! This was our 2nd visit at Bha! Bha! this summer. I would recommend it highly. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked and deliciously spiced. The favorite at the table was the Lamb Shank Special. Personally I love the hearts of palm salad and even though they were out of several desserts, the butternut squash cake was outstanding.
My only complaint was another table of 2 across from us. The man was vulgar and loud. He was obviously drunk and it was distracting and at times uncomfortable. Thankfully the noise level in the restaurant was mostly loud enough to drown him out.
Tonight, just like our first visit, it is obvious that service is a top priority. Bha! Bha! takes the time to train their staff and it shows. The food is interesting and delicious. We will definitely be back.

The only thing that I could suggest is that they need to have the front door closed because when you are sitting next to the door it’s warm and In Naples it could get really warm anytime of the day
