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.

This is one of my favs in Naples. Have been coming here since it was in their original location. Food is authentic and feels family owned.
Consistently delicious. The hearts of palm salad & Kermani beef are my go -to. They also make a delish martini.

Olives are a great appetizer. We split the hearts of Palm salad, which is large portion. The lamb shank is fabulous. To die for.

Bha Bha is one of our favorites in Naples! It’s creative, unique cuisine, not the same old same old. We’ve always had knowledgeable servers that make great recommendations. Love this restaurant, never had a bad or boring meal here!

We had a party of four. We enjoyed appetizers, wine, main courses and dessert. Everything we had was "outstanding". Our first adventure with Persian food. We found the flavors to be very rich and deep. Our waiter was Chadamir. He was outstanding at his tasks. My wife was concerned that a dish might be too "spicy" hot. He went to the kitchen and brought back a small ramekin of the sauce for her to try. He was well versed with the menu and Persian quisine. He managed to show up when he was needed, and left us to converse with each other uninterrupted otherwise. This is a restaurant we will return to for occasions. It is on Fifth Ave, so a nice stroll down the street after dinner is a nice finish.

Loved all the lamb and egg plant dishes. Beautifully prepared and presented. The hummus and Dolmeh stuffed grape leaves were a delight. The flash fried eggplant on tomatoes was delicious. Beautiful restaurant and service.

As always Bha Bha is one of the best restaurants in Southwest Florida. We frequent here especially during off season as it is very popular and I suggest reservations any time of the year. The food is top quality and the presentation is exquisite! Can['t wait to go back!!!!

I always request Cheyne (sp). He is undoubtedly the most courteous, and efficient server I've had at any restaurant!

If you have never been and would like a totally different food experience, you need to put this place on the top of your dining out list!!!

We decided to share appetizers and main course which were all excellent but the waiter brought us some smaller plates that looked old, chipped and not inviting at all!
This is a nice restaurant and they should have dinnerware that match the image they want to project.

While lamb is dominant on the menu there are dishes to suit most tastes. Restaurant was busy throughout the night which shows the popularity stays out of season. Worth a visit and currently have offer of 50% off bottles from a small wine selection on thursdays. We thought from the advert that the discount was off all wines until our server pointed to the small list!

Bha Bha is a terrific addition to the Naples restaurant scene. First it is a beautiful place. It feels special, warm and relaxing. The table is set with white linen and feels welcoming. The waitstaff is unusually friendly but not at all pushy. They are there to serve the patrons and explain about the restaurant and the items on the menu. We were there to celebrate a birthday and were delighted with the ambiance, the service, the food.......ahhhh yes, the food! No better place for a special occasion.

We celebrated our anniversary at Bha Bha this week. This is our most favorite restaurant in Naples, FL. The food is always excellent....best lamb dishes ever! However, Any choice you make from their kitchen will be perfection. Our server, Mario, was wonderful. He’s professional, knowledgeable and most personable. Our celebration was perfect. Thank you, Bha Bha, for never letting us down! We will return soon.
