Great turkish food, great value

Really good place to try some traditional turkish food in a nice (but not pretentious) setting, with good service at a very reasonable price. We (3 people) each had 3 courses with soft drinks and coffee for 150 TL. Especially nice meat pizza and mixed grill platter. Very close to Hilton and... read more

I love this restaurant, its menu includes various kind of food options. You can eat delicious kebap and traditional Turkish food in this restaurant. I went this restaurant since I was a child. It maintains its good quality. It is a big restaurant and you can go there with your family and crowded groups. Ottoman culture rules in this restaurant... More

I enjoyed a meal here last week. It's a big restaurant with an excellent food menu. The food was beautifully presented and the service was attentive without being overbearing. If you visit, I recommend the Ezme salad to start! The food is not very authentic, there are better options in Ankara and there is no alcohol.

What an outstanding place. The food and the service was excellent. Even though the price was reasonable, we received with our meal at no additional cost, bread, an appetizer, fresh fruit and nuts , and a glass of sage tea. This is a must stop for lunch or dinner when in Ankara.

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...
