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.

This was our second trip to Bha Bha. We took a visiting friend there because our first experience was outstanding and also because she is vegetarian and there were many different choices for her throughout the menu. The wait staff there is so friendly and helpful and patient with our questions. They know the menu and the wine/bar offerings. We were never rushed. All of our selections were wonderfully prepared. We’ll be returning.

Have been wanting to try and was not disappointed when we went with friends the other night. The eggplant was amazing as well as the chicken with basmati rice, apricots and dates. Looking forward to my next visit.

Meal deal is okay if your expectations aren’t high. My apricot lamb was so cloyingly sweet. Others thought the salmon was okay. Beet salad was good and eggplant appy. Would rather not have dessert and put the difference to a single a la crate meal the next time. Very pleasant staff. Busy place.

Enjoyed our meal, drinks good. Nice setting. Would be equally as nice to get some appetizers and drinks. We both had some kind of kebab meal and it was a lot of food with appetizers. Would definitely go back again.

First time at Bha Bha. Food and service were excellent! Not crazy about the seating configuration. I do not like community dining, but Mario took the initiative to move us to a larger table so that made a big difference. Those were not olives in my Martini, anything that small had to be capers. I have already recommended Bha Bha to several people. I will be back, but I may have to bring my own olives.

Their food barely stands for a food court quality. Poor ingridients, looks like cheese chicken were from Costco. And as bad as it is, it’s also overpriced.

The food and service are outstanding. The flavors keep your taste buds awake and alive.
The only drawback, in my view, is that it is a little pricey

Our meal at Bha! Bha! Bistro was very disappointing. From misleading descriptions on the menu to an exorbitant $35 corkage fee, it didn’t meet the expectation that others had created for us. The service was rushed even though we told our server we weren’t in any hurry. The only redeeming part of the meal was the braised lamb shank which was delicious; just not enough to overcome all the shortcomings.

Our waiter, Mario was very friendly & helpful to choose our dishes. The eggplant starter dish was very flavourful but a bit overpriced. The signature lamb hip entree was succulent and tasty. The second chicken entree was average.

We’ve been to bha bha, twice in last couple of months. And find the atmosphere menu, the bar and service so spot on, we wouldn’t hesitate going back yet again in very near future - whether for full dinner or apps at the bar.
