I think what you heard was 'बहुत ही अच्छा है'.

The ही is used to add emphasis. Here it is saying that it is really very good.
You can also use it in other places. For example, 'यह काम तुम ही करोगे ' - 'You will do this'. The ही is used to emphasise that it is you and not anyone else who will do it.
