What a wonderful night we had at Bha! Bha!. We had a plum lamb dish and a zesty chicken dish with a bottle of Cote du Rhine. The owner, Mike stopped by to say hello to my dinner partner who has eaten there for 17 years. Our Turkish server was first class. The food is 'different' and delicious. The table next to us was occupied by 3 Iranian Americans and we had a great conversation as we finished the wine. You won't be disappointed at this restaurant.

We were in Naples for the weekend and wanted to find a good location for my wife's birthday. She enjoys Mediterranean food so we decided to give this a try. She was thrilled. Great food in a beautiful setting. A good wind selection. And of course, excellent service. We will definitely be back.

We had a great dinner experience with our daughter & grandson from out of town. The hostess welcomed us and promptly seated us at a very nice table. Fernando our server was outstanding throughout the evening to ensure we were delighted with our dining experience. We had the hummus & salad appetizers which were all excellent. We also had the red snapper special entree, seafood khoresh, spicy shrimp,and beef tenderloin kabobs. All were excellent dishes. bha bha is truly a neighborhood gem on Fifth Avenue.

This is a special place! Delicious and authentic (if a bit embellished - this is a gorgeous upscale place) dishes you won't see in very many US restaurants outside of the few Persian neighborhoods with their own eateries, for sure. Several lamb dishes made it hard to choose, but the braised shank in a sauce with red beans & limes was absolutely wonderful - meat as tender & moist as any I've ever had, falling off the bone in huge chunks with only enough fat for flavor. Hummus was fine if a bit bland, and our salad was a delicious plate of fresh and very pretty leaves & vegetables. My wife's fish was stellar, and we had an excellent Rioja Reserva for $45!! Our server was a delight - knowledgable about their food & its cultural significance, an excellent guide to the menu, and a pleasure to converse with all evening. We loved it!!

We took friends who had not gone before. They loved it! Made reservations after dinner for a birthday dinner in Jan. As always good is exceptional, service very elegant and the owner Michael Mir makes you feel very special and welcome. You are missing the best if you don't go!

Consistently outstanding !!! Service is always great and the food is teriffic. New location in downtown Naples is most convienient. Hummus is always a great starter . We also enjoy the eggplant appetizer . Can not go wring with the mixed grill or yet the apricot chicken or shrimp. Wine list is good and corkage fee is reasonable for those of us that need to reduce the home inventory of vino.

bha! bha! Extraordinaire!!
We went for the early bird special ($15 entree) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food (apricot lamb and salmon) was terrific - well prepared and delicious. We could not have been more pleased. This was the first time we took advantage of the summer special menu and it won't be the last.

I loved the menu at Bha Bha. Our server was great at explaining all the dishes. I did not like the seating. You basically bump elbows with the person next to you. Very small tables for 2. My pet peeve when going to a nice restaurant. When I pay for a nice meal I would like to be comfortable and not feel like I have to introduce myself to the person next to me because they are sitting so close. And the 2-top tables are so narrow you can barely fit all your food on them.

Nice little restaurant with pretty decor. Great unusual martinis. The food was wonderfully authentic. My husband had the mixed grill and I had the seafood khoresh. It was all very good. Our server was very nice and attentive.

Ambiance is good. Like the Persian green color. Waiter was good but too busy with many tables so he forgot our second order for drinks. But apologies accepted. What I DON'T like is that the restaurant automatically adds gratuity to the bill.
It kept me from tipping because I do not like the idea that someone else decide what to give.
It was for us a negative experience.
As Americans tend to talk loud we could overhear both conversations left and right from our table. A bit more room between them prevents eavesdropping.

As always, the food and cocktails were excellent. We were surprised to find that the $15 early dining specials are now " small portions." The ad makes no mention of this. We love the restaurant but feel that has become too expensive.
Very attentive and professional service ...
Very attentive and professional service all the while remaining discrete. Very knowledgeable about dish subtleties. Kaskhe bademjune melted in the mouth - sublime. Lamb bademjune and the lamb shank special of the day were both wonderfully flavoured with just enough spices and herbs to elevate the dish without masking the taste of the meat and vegetables. Persian rice was light and delicate. Our wine choice, Persia, was, unfortunately, unavailable but the recommended alternative, Freemark Abbey, was a happy marriage with the lamb dishes. Definitely will return.

Very nice restaurant with delicious food. However our experience was ruined by our server Mario. We wanted to order appetizers he discouraged us. We wanted more wine and he wasn't around. We wanted to order dessert and coffee but his attitude was really bad. He just gave us the bill instead of a dessert menu. we had to ask for dessert menu. Too bad the owners let a server like Mario ruin there business. We kept looking at the table next to us wishing we had their server.

The food here is simply phenomenal. Everything is cooked perfectly and seasoned to perfection. Also, quite a good selection for all types of eaters. My only complaint is the prices. I simply can not comprehend charging those kinds of prices in Naples, FL for a cuisine that is not terribly popular. It should be more popular, because it's outstanding food, but the prices are going to severely limit the clientele.

The food here was amazing. They had $15 plate specials between 5:00pm - 6:00pm, but they extended it for us slightly. We ordered the lamb with yogurt (which wasn't bad), the salmon with artichokes (which was the best dish), and the chicken (which was really good). Finished off with the traditional ice cream and Turkish coffee. Was very pleasantly with the entire dining experience. One of the best Persian fine dining experiences I've ever had. This is a must try if you like flavors!
