This is one of the nicest kebab restaurants in Ankara. It has a lovely garden. It is lovely during good weather. Polite waiting staff are very helpful. Kebab quality is very good. It can handle many people so good for big groups. I visited many times during the years and it kept its quality. It is close to Tunali Hilmi... More

Located in the center of the city, close to many government buildings so Hacı Arif Bey is preferred by the bureaucrats and politicians. It was also preferred by the 9th president of Turkey, Süleyman Demirel who used to live on the same street. It is a great kebab restaurant, prices are high, you may need reservations since it is usually... More

A family friendly place with wonderful service and extravagant dishes. I first went there as an 8 year old and returned at the age of 26 year old and still loved it like a kid. Beyti kebab is a must try. Highly recommend it to anybody visiting Ankara.

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.

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. We had Ezo Gelin soup, which is always delicious, followed by a couple appetizers (minced meat covered by (I... More
