Ate here 4-5 times over the 2016 winter season. One of top 3 restaurants in Naples. Most starters and mains show excellent use of seasonings and different food/spice combinations. Not hot or spicy but creative and full of flavour.

Owner is amazing. Very courteous, inviting and accommodating. Food is simply out of this world. Drinks are real drinks. We had the saffron and mango martini -real knockouts. Hummus is extraordinary. Lamb is delicious, so were the kaboobs. Will definity come again.

Hi There… wow! Thanks for the tittle: A Persian Bistro! You know it’s taken such a long time for me to finally convince our public to embrace a “bistro” style Persian restaurant. It Seemed as for decades there was always an expectation of a stereotype Persian dining. So I really apricate you and your friends embracing it and put a the same title as I had envisioned in my head 35 years ago. As one may in do in a French or an Italian bistro……….. Eat, drink, laugh and enjoy!…..Bistro! …any Bistro! it literally means that per Wikipedia! So, thanks again. It is truly rewarding when food done on small scale is appreciated by good food enthusiasts. Thank you Michael Mir Chef and Owner

Bha! Bha! Is an innovative Persian bistro. A chic south Florida Persian inspired and influenced BISTRO. The interior is very sharp and elegant,.. 5Th avenue chic yet with some Persian touches. It "resembles a Persian jewel box". It features classic Persian food as well as Persian fusion food. I have always billed it as that. In fact the word "INNOVATIVE" appears on our marquis and websites and other various advertisements; yes, even on this very site. Popular classic items such the authentic Ghorme Sabzi, Fesenjune, Bademjune, Halleem and Kashke` Bademjune , Aash soup and all Chelo kabobs are all present on the menu. More than half of the menu is dedicated to other various fusion food: shrimp, fresh fish, seafood, couscous, paella etc......Innovative techniques with Persian inspirations. The menu price range is in line with our neighboring restaurants here in downtown Naples. This is a Bon Appetit recommended and James Beard recognized restaurant. Although I am constantly inspired by all other cuisines, but my food should not be stereotyped with Arabic, Turkish, Indian, etc. Or any other single ethnicity. My signature food at Bha! Bha! Bistro remains just that. My signature cooking here includes many dishes on my menu that perhaps are not seen or recognized in a typical Persian restaurant. Although all the classic Persian ingredients like pomegranates, mint, saffron, rose water, turmeric, cardamom, pistachios, basmati rice, etc...Are used here, however they are not all packaged into one entree. Among the 3 dozens items on my menu some are packed with flavors and some are kept low key for the respect of diners who may not be too enthusiastic about overwhelmingly pungent flavors. My staff will go out of their way to guide the dinners into a perfect union with their choices. I invite you to come over and allow me to entice all your culinary senses by what I have created over the past 27 years. Eagerly welcoming you. Michael Mir, exec. Chef/Owner
