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.

Friendly place, nice staff. They ask your name and then they will surperize you with your name on a fresh made bread with black seeds called Portulaca (If I am right). Food is tasty and price is good.

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.

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

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.
