bha! bha! Persian Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Super first experience. We're no experts ...
Super first experience. We're no experts on Persian cuisine, but we had all of the rich flavors we expected. The modern versions of classics were innovative without straying too far from the original flavors. That keeps the dishes both interesting and familiar. The service was impeccable. We sat on the terrace alongside the building rather than street side, which was quieter and more private. Overall a great first experience.

Been wanting to try bha! bha! for months -- and it did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in, we were made to feel welcome. Restaurant has a cozy feel, yet also feels very chic. Food is delicious. Hard to choose! Known for their lamb, which my spouse had. I had the quail. Both were excellent -- as were the lavash and the butternut squash jewel cake. Drinks were also good. Service was excellent, too. (Wish I could remember my server's name. He was great.) Will definitely be back. Worth the 1.25-hour drive!

Bha?Bha? never disappoints. We have eaten there many time and taken many friends who all rave about the food. Wine list is good with many nice wines by the glass. Appetizers are superb. I deviated from Lamb and tried a chicken dish this time, which was also wonderful.
Atmosphere is very clean and contemporary.

Was disappointed, my wife ordered a Quail entree and the Quail was very under-cooked, it was actually red half-way through to the bone, which is really bad for a restaurant of this stature. The waiter, who was super-attentive all night apologized and the manager came by to apologize and then later to make sure everything was OK. They re-cooked the same Quail they served my wife, with her partially eaten vegetables which also surprised us. They should have done more for us like offer a desert or comp us in some other way. We are visitors to Naples but even if we were residents bha! bha! wouldn't be on our list of places to return to.

Food was very good, but the evening was ruined first by being rushed(main course came out before appetizers were finished) then when a piece of mussel shell was found in the shrimp dish, the manager was apologetic but blamed it on the busyness of a Sat. night! He did take the offending meal off the check and provided dessert, and the waiter tried hard, but we did not leave feeling entirely pleased.

We come here several times a year & even when very busy they have never disappointed us. Very friendly & attentive service. Lovely cocktails. Outstanding starters & entrees with lots of variety to choose from. Probably the best baklava ever!

We had dinner at Bha Bha Thursday night. I had no idea what to expect. Usually Persian restaurants offer mostly kebaobs. I ordered the duck Fesenjoon and my husband ordered plum lamb. They were both fantastic. The chef gives the Persian food a twist without loosing its authenticity. The duck meet melted in the mouth, the sauce was great and the added mango sauce was the twist. Similarly my husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal. For desert we had poach pear Napoleon. It was very good as well. We will go back.

Our first time at this popular (needed to make reservation a few days ahead) Naples restaurant so I was expecting more but was disappointed. Perhaps we didn't choose well but dishes we bland and uninspiring. Only one dish we ordered, a meatball appetizer, seemed to have been inspired by Persian cuisine.

This restaurant was a big hit with out of town guests on New Year's Eve. The food was fabulous, the service outstanding and the atmosphere was vibrant. This restaurant definitely lives up to the hype - can't wait to return!

Food was ok, starter cold, waiter was very attentive. The price you pay does not justify the food you get. I have paid this amount before happily cause food was great and plenty. Naples could do with some down to earth restaurants serving good food for fair money. This restaurant is not in this category but there might be very few in Naples anyhow. Once somebody finds out and opens them a lot will have to change or improve or close down.

Bha! Bha! is always a treat we look forward to when in Naples. Our server, this time, was Mario - very friendly with a sense of humor and he had helpful suggestions about the menu. Glad we called ahead for the tadik.

The food is very good. My favorite is sweet and spicy chicken. My husband likes the lamb shank. I also like the hummus, lamb meatballs and stuffed grape leaves are good too.
I've never been disappointed here. The food is consistent and service is excellent too.

I have come here 3 times in the past year, every time I come to the Naples area. Love this place from the very first visit. Food is innovative and never miss the mark. Even if you went the vegetarian route, you can't go wrong. Cocktails are also wonderful. Can't say anything wrong about this place. Waiters remember who I am- who doesn't like that? I'll be coming back, again and again.

Meat was tasteless and expensive
Salmon was good.
Starters were ok but really nothing special not all dishes on the menu were available!
This is nowhere near a top class restaurant and I shall not be eating there a second time!
The Persian cuisine is always outstandin ...
The Persian cuisine is always outstanding, with a creative flair. I love the spices, and the use of apricots and plums in the sauces. Shrimp with ginger and apricot is my all-time favorite. I will have to say that the place is a bit too crowded for comfort on special holidays such as Christmas and New Year's. Hopefully, you will like the party seated next to you, because they are almost in your lap!
