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.

We had an amazing evening - everyone loved their food - we split hummus and a spinach and pistachio salad and two of us had delicious lamb, two had spicy beef and one had shrimp. Everyone wants to go back!!!

We came back, inspired by great memories of our first dinner here a year ago, and we were not disappointed. I don't usually write reviews, but I loved everything (everything!) we ordered, loved the cocktails, found a great wine for our party to share, and had a lively conversation about Persian history and culture spurred by the reproduction reliefs displayed around the restaurant. Our waiter was warm, efficient, and helpful. We look forward to returning next time we come back to Naples!

My 77th birthday was awesome because of the unbelievable service of our Server. Don’t recall his name, but it started with the initial “M”.
The food was excellent also

We all had delicious meals at Bha Bha and would most likely return at another time. Received a terrific greeting by the woman at the door. They were being careful to seat people very far apart. However, during this time of concern about COVID-19 I was particularly taken back by the casualness that the bartender operated under. The female bartender “wiped” the counter in front of me but not my husband, where we sat to await the arrival of our friends. Her quick “wipe” would not have constituted an appropriate cleaning or germ prevention measure. Then I watched as she prepared drinks and handled objects behind the bar. Again, not acceptable or appropriate. Aside from that it appeared that the restaurant did a good job of keeping plates, silverware, and other areas clean and germ free as possible.

We have dined at Bah Bah in the past and never been disappointed. Once again, it was excellent from the food to the ambiance to the server, Dianne. Dianne did an excellent job of describing the specials. My husband had both the appetizer and the entree. Spectacular. The only problem is what to order. Excellent

From the time we entered he Bistro for our anniversary we were treated very well. Bobby, our server, went all out to give us great service. The food was excellently prepared and the portions were not too small or too large -just the right amount. Five stars in our experience.

Bha Bha’s is one of my favourite restaurants in Naples. I love the way they do lamb and had rather Persian lamb shank from the menu. It was wonderful. We hope to be back again next winter. Joan

Four of us out for a birthday dinner and we all loved it. We each ordered something different and a shared appetizer so that we could taste other dishes and were delighted with each offering. The service was top notch and the server brought out two dishes of Persian ice cream with birthday candles for dessert.
It was bit pricey, but worth it. I can't wait to go back.

We have been going to BhaBha's since it opened in the Pavillion in 1997! We have had great service over the years. Even though it moved downtown many years ago, the service is still great, we still see familiar faces in waiters that have been working in the restaurant for a very long time and from time to time we get to see the owner, Michael who always greats us with a warm smile! It feels like family and we are glad that the food still tastes as wonderful as always. We are glad they are not afraid to have flavor in their food! It's one of our family's favorite restaurants in town and we make sure to visit on our special days!

Bha Bha! Remains one of our favorites in downtown Naples. We love the unique and intense flavors of well prepared Persian food. Bha Bha’s food is always top notch and the service is excellent. It’s right at the end of 5th Street South, a bit noisy outside (where we prefer to sit on nice evenings) as the traffic rolls by, but there is also nice seating indoors. Bha Bha is highly recommended.

Food was fabulous and the service from Mario A. made it a memorable evening. Make sure you ask for him as he was a true professional that really cares about his customer!
Plus he is just a really nice guy!!! Took his recommendations for Lamb Meatballs appetizer, I had the Seafood Khoresh and my wife had the Lamb Chops, all was amazing. A "must go" in Naples and ask for Mario A.

In my mind a good restaurant is good at everything, starting with the greeting. On this note our evening started on poorly. No we were expecting you, no smile and certainly no warm feeling. The food was great as usual but I could not shake the feeling we weren't welcome there. I know that sounds absurd , its just how I felt.
