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.

I had no prior experience with Persian food. As a visitor to Naples, I thought it would be nice to try something new. I was further guided by a friend’s recommendation and the rave reviews I had read online. I was still surprised by how much we enjoyed this restaurant. The menu is extensive. Every dish is explained well, imaginative, and expertly prepared. The seafood,dish enjoyed was perfectly cooked and presented. The hummus we started with was fabulous. I loved the lemongrass saffron martini. Amazing. The hearts of palm salad was great too. I would definitely recommend and definitely return.

Have been to Bha bha several times before; however, this was the first time on a Saturday evening in the high season. I found the restaurant to be extremely noisy, and having made the reservation 2 months in advance, our table was cramped and not in the best location. Service was at best "average"....had to request for any "specials" & our entry was brought to the table before we finished our salads. We weren't even cleared yet. All a bit rushed. Having said that, the food was very good. I requested medium- well for the lamb kabob. That needed to be sent back for further grilling. Overall, this was a very average evening for one of our favorite restaurants.

We enjoyed everything about this place. The food was outstanding. Intense flavors but not too hot! There was plenty on the menu to choose from no matter your dietary needs. We shared the eggplant appetizer, the ground beef and lamb skewers and the pistachio ice cream. All of it was unique and delicious. The staff was helpful and very pleasant even with a large and noisy group close by. It left me wanting to return and if I didn’t have to fly out to go home I most certainly would! If you are thinking about going do yourself a favor and don’t hesitate!

Excellent but expensive!

Really good food but pretty expensive eg $15 for one starter of hummus seems excessive, but it was tasty, as was the whole meal.

If you are happy with $160 a couple then it’s the place for you as the food will not disappoint!

We got the shrimp entree, lamb kabobs, and rockfish and everything was delicious! The shrimp came with a mango sauce that was delicious (the menu said that this was a spicy sauce but I didn’t find it spicy). We ate outside and listened to music from a bar across the street. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Pleasing to the eye and the palate.. menu was full of delicious choices and the presentation was great! Service very good. Only thing that was an issue was that my seat was in the walkway for waitstaff, this made it uncomfortable for dining.

We sat outdoors at a side table. It was very private and quiet. We wondered how the service would be but our waiter, Chad, was very attentive. The food was served with good timing and was hot and delicious. This is one of our favorite restaurants.

Very romantic and cute modern Persian restaurant. Excellent service. Food is very good. I’m usually a fan of traditional favorites but tried some of the innovative dishes like the paella and lamb shank and they were very good. Great for any occasion or special night.

Reservation was for 7pm. When we arrived we were told they were 45 mins behind. Had to go elsewhere for a drink to wait. No courtesy call ahead of time to tell us of the delay and no kind of compensation for our inconvenience and delay.

Four of us dined at the Bistro this week. I had always heard good reviews and wanted to try it. We ate outside and even though it is on 5th avenue it was quiet. The food and service were excellent. I would highly recommend the lamb shank! We will be back!

Delightful way to ring in the New Year. Superb, friendly, prompt service. The food is perfectly prepared - I had the lamb tenderloin, daughter the mixed grill and wife the snapper. Prefaced by the lamb meatballs and hummus. Good wine selection (though red wine was a bit warm). We've dined here before and this was as good as a regular evening.
