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.

The food and service were excellent. I am amazed that an ethnic restaurant of this caliber makes it in this area. They are doing it right. Will drive across the state to come here again. The lamb chops and baklava were heaven.

Bha Bha was another one of our restaurant week dinners...we have been there before; both in their former Pavilion location and 5th Ave.
They have never disappointed. The food is excellent and always delivered hot from the kitchen. I believe our server was Daniela; She and her back up team were flawless, Never overpowering; always in the shadows sensing our needs. Probably the best service we have seen this restaurant week in Naples. Refreshed waters and folded guests napkins whenever they left the table..
Obviously the restaurant is Persian....any lamb dish is the way to go. Highly recommend!!

We have always had excellent food and service at Bha Bha. We were flying down to Naples for a few days and when we saw that Bha Bha was on the restaurant week list we could not resist going there. We flew in and went there for dinner that evening. The lamb dishes and sauces with them are so good. I had dishes with lamb and eggplant, my wife had apricot lamb. We ate at a middle eastern restaurant near our northern home last week. It could not compare to Bha Bha. The baklava for dessert was very good without being over.y sweetened. We enjoy returning and bringing visiting friends and families to this Persian restaurant.

5 star restaurant with 4 star restaurant week experience. Food 5 star and enjoyed that on this occasion. Service very good also. However, restaurant week promises 3 course meal for fixed price. Since the delicious Persian baklava dessert, beautifully served, was waaaaay too small a course, I downgraded to 4 stars overall. I actually took home half my entree to leave room for dessert which was a 1" square...I could easily have eaten 3 of them, my husband says he was up for 4 of them. So I kind of ruined the entree by eating only half for no reason. And the overall value when you consider 2 courses instead of 3 was less than expected.

Enjoyed our meal very much. We ordered off the restaurant week menu. Both the salmon and chicken entrees were excellent. The rice also was perfectly cooked as you would expect in a Persian restaurant. The jicama salad was also very tasty. Service was good. The only small downside was the very loud group in the back of the restaurant which you simply couldn’t ignore and did effect our enjoyment.

Make reservations in order to enjoy this amazing restaurant that is listed among the Top 100 restaurants in the USA by the New York Times. The food is beyond compare. A very special dining experience, indeed. Our waiter on our most recent visit was Fernando. He was excellent, attentive and very knowledgeable about the selection of foods and the wine and cocktails, as well. Make a point of going to Bha Bha, I know you won’t be disappointed.

It simply continues to be one of the best restaurants in a city replete with really good dining offerings. The 5 to 6 pm special menu is a real bargain for the quality of food and the care of preparation. I had lamb, my wife had salmon and our friends had veal. Each of us thought we had the best dish of all.

We enjoyed a creative appetizer and 3 lamb meals and desserts. The lamb dish with plums was the more tasty & interesting one. We liked the well-balanced and tasty desserts as they were not as sweet as we had expected. Our waiter was experienced and very accommodating & not intrusive - very pleasant! So we enjoyed a nice evening, great dinner and a soft lit ambiance as we area avoiding restaurants with loud music and harsh lighting.

I heard such good things about this place so we had to try it. I went here with a true Persian person who knows her Kabob. She said it was good but could have been seasoned a little more and it was not cooked enough and had to be sent back to bring it to medium. But it was tasty but I think I have had better. The price was a little high for what you get as well. I would try it again but I would give it a 7 out of 10.

I travel a lot and it was one of the best meals I've ever had, anywhere. If you like lamb, they really know how to cook lamb. It's amazing and I will be back, as there were several items on the menu I want to try.
