Haci Arif Bey is an authentic kebap restaurant at a very accesible place in Ankara, near Hilton and Sheraton, with very high quality of local food, kebaps, sweets, pastries.

This used to be one of the best restaurants in Ankara. We went 2 days ago, the place is run down, the service is slow and the quality of food was not good. I had chicken which came over cooked. We asked salad without too much spice, it came with red pepper that we could not eat.

You used to go there especially during Ramadan for dinner. The last time we did was on a special occasion with a large group friends and we were all disappointed. The food is traditional doner kebap. The service is rushed and bad.

This is a traditional Turkish restaurant located within walking distance from the Ankara Hilton. There is a wide selection of Turkish cuisine. The service is very efficient and the food is delicious.

I have been to Haci Arifbey many times, and I have never been the least bit disappointed. It was the last day of my cousin's visit, and we had not had Iskender kebap yet, even though we had been in Bursa.

This restaurant is a classic among the locals as well as visitors. It kept its quality for a very very long time. Try anything and you will not be frustrated. The only problem is traffic and parking.take a cab or walk if you can.

Myself & my husband were staying in Ankara one night & so tried this restaurant. From the outside it looked quite upmarket & we worried we were under-dressed, however on entering we were greeted warmly & shown a table without hesitation. It seemed as though there was a combination of locals & tourists dining that night. The menu was easy... More

Restaurant serves southeastern Anatolian Cuisine. Great lahmacun, içli köfte and salads. Average kebaps. Friendly staff. Complimentary tea/coffee, fruits and nuts after meal.

We happened on this place and so glad we did! Authentic food with very friendly attentive service! They even asked where we were from and made a flat bread with sesame seeds spelling out Miami as a way to welcome us. Well worth visiting for a meal in Ankara.
