Reasonably priced and great food!

Ate here last night on recommendation of Insight guide. Wasn't disappointed. Salads were very good and my lamb delicious. Friendly staff, clean and airy establishment.

Hacı Arif Bey restaurant is our family destination when we are really hungry. We also take local and foreign guests frequently to introduce them in its authentic Gaziantep dishes. The menu is so varied, meals always having best ingredients and maintaining their quality. The staff of the restaurant are long-timers: experienced, reliable and helpful. You sit in the semi-covered wide... More

This local family friendly restaurant is about 1.5 blocks from the Hilton. There were visitors and business people there also. The menu has lots of kebab type selections, inexpensively priced. You can eat outdoors in a garden type environment under awnings, or inside. The service is friendly and attentive. I had a kebab plate with peppers and kebabs made of... More

I used to go to this 'Antep lokanta more often than I should have in the 90's.I then knew their phone number by heart for "paket servis". I still do.... That was a bit silly, as even then, there were other equally good alternatives, so many cheaper outlets of similar calibre. But I liked it here, and I was not... More

I was there in Ramadan. They served us appetizers while waiting for the dinner/iftar. They wrote my name on the bread with nigella seeds. Food was delicious. Service was top notch. Highly recommended.

Our extended family (6 adults, 3 children) ate here this evening, a family favorite. The waitstaff is particularly good with young children. There is an indoor play area for the young and the restless. Children get a flatbread with their name spelled with cumin seeds. Full menu, reasonable prices. We brought home a packet of uneaten leftovers to enjoy tomorrow.... More

I have been to this place many times during 90s - and also in the recent years. My impression is that this place has kind of lost its authenticity. The service is good. People are friendly - and the restaurant is clean. However, the food is at best "average". Same food you can find elsewhere much cheaper. Further, they serve... More
