This place is kind of famous. It is a clean restaurant with a very nice location. But not authentic at all.

A little below the district where most of the consulates lie, a little above one of the liveliest streets of the town, there is Haci Arif Bey. It is not adviceable for the youth, its style best suits for "seniors". In the background is Turkish classical music, the interor design has a bit of a heavy mood for youngsters. I... More

This was a very good kebab restaurant in the past but now it seems to be hardly an average one. We experienced a bad dinner as a family. All waiters were men and ours called me ''abi'' which means something like ''brother'', not common in good restaurants anymore. My wife ordered a so called ‘’home special’’ kebab dish by looking...

Haci Arif Bey is a very friendly kebap restaurant for tourists to visit. They offer some of the best service I've had in a foreign country, as well as have a special treat they serve their customers (I'll let you experience it yourselves) The food is very tasty and offers a good look at what food is available to eat...

I had to admit, I am writing this review after 10 months and there are not a lot of restaurants that I remember from my trip back in October 2013. However, this restaurant stands out! The meal me and my colleague had here was just outstanding.. Excellent coban salad which had the right balance of sour with spicy, followed by... More

Located at the hearth of Ankara (Kavaklıdere) opposite to the residence of the ex-President of the Republic Mr.Demirel, this kebap house has some specials of their own. Ask waiter the special kebap "Ali Nazik" ( kebap&egg plant etc) and "lahmacun". Their "baklava" sweet is also a must to have at the end of the meal.

Writing my name on the bread was cute! It was a really pleasant lunch in a pleasant surrounding. Enjoyed it very much.

Nice restaurant, nice setting, easy to access, parking valet service. The trained and seasoned staff treat you almost like they're your favourite butler... Above all, excellent food. Good for business lunches (a bit heavy though!) as well as family outings and for brunch...

We were greeted at the door,escorted to our table and the feeling of being treated special continued thru out the evening. The waiter realized we did not speak Turkish and came over with another waiter who spoke English without us feeling uncomfortable. He recommended some Mezes and mixed Kebabs which were all delicious. Families were there and everyone fit in.... More
