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.

Wonderful.
Our second dining experience at Bha!Bha!, and if you had only one dinner in old Naples, make it here.

The snapper is the best in Naples, the flavors and price were breathtaking. The service was appropriately perfect, but the noise level was deafening. We were among the youngest in the room, which looks like a museum gallery. What a beautiful dining room, what perfectly prepared and presented dishes, what perfect service! But the prices are prohibitive, so we do not visit often.

This place did not disappoint. The location was within walking distance of our hotel. The ambiance - just lovely. We sat under towering beautiful palm trees lit up. My husbands family is Persian. The service was excellent. The food couldn’t have been more tasty. Portions were large and I actually had 2 meals of mine.. everything was fantastic!!

We dined at bha! bha! for my husband’s birthday. Bha! bha! has been a consistent
consistently excellent restaurant for the 20+ years we have lived in Naples. The Persian food is wonderfully spiced, beautifully presented, and tastefully unique. The restaurant owner and chef has exceptional interior design skills using color, texture, and light
to create a tasteful and comfortable venue. My husband and I enjoyed wonderful service from an experienced and watch for waiter.
We ordered from a three course special menu and enjoyed an appetizer, entree, and dessert each were choices we had not eaten previously. Our favorite was the appetizer of stuffed egg plant It was a wow!

You must try this intimate restaurant! If you are looking for a little something different, then dine at BHA BHA tonight. The cuisine is absolutely delicious! The unique ingredients dance on your palate! Pomegranate walnut puree, mango coulis, saffron infused dishes, many slow braised and grilled dishes are just of the few things I saw on my first trip, YES, we will be back. Hmm maybe again this week. Did I mention quality craft cocktails to die for.

I made our reservation for our 30th anniversary, and noted such on the Open Table res. We were greeted without any words spoken, taken to a table in their back room, with no other diners present. No mention of our special event, or if we had any table preference. We actually did not like the original tiny 2 top next to a curtain, so moved to the adjacent table. No server approached our table for 5 minutes, I had to hail a staff person to get water service. Then a waiter appeared and when we said we were opening our own bottle of wine ( specially selected for our event) he promptly reminded us of the corkage fee ( which I had inquired about previously). Once wine was served, I again had to eventually hail our server for ordering. After that service was prompt, appetizers were very good, my wife's salmon dish was overly salted and garlicky, my dish was fine but very basic. We signed for check, and with no goodnights or thanks at the door. Overall, my opinion is that kitchen and bar performs well, service is very impersonal, greetings and goodnights poor. No stars for restaurant or open table, given that a special event was noted but never acknowledged.

There really is no finer dining experience in Naples than bha! bha! Persian Bistro. Fine ingredients subtly and beautifully spiced make for exotic, memorable fare served in an elegant atmosphere by thoroughly professional staff. What more could one ask for?

Superb restaurant. The seasonings were innovative and exceptional.

We arrived at 5 PM, and the noise level was perfect. By 630, as the crowd increased, it became average for a restaurant of this size.

I will certainly return, as well as recommend this restaurant to my friends
