Hanuman Darwin first opened its doors in 1992. Originally located at the Bennet Street end of Mitchell Street, the restaurant moved to its current location late 2007.We are delighted with the new setting. As part of the Holiday Inn Esplanade complex the restaurant incorporates a beautiful deck dining area and stylish cocktail bar.With seating for 90 people outside and a further 90 inside, be prepared to immerse yourself in a truly exotic experience.

Fantastic Taste Experience

A wonderful taste sensation, the Oysters were delicious. We enjoyed a variety of curry's, all unique, the Goat Rogan Josh was my favourite, however, the Barramundi was exquisite and ofcourse, the award winning Butter Chicken is a must. Service was above and beyond.

What can one say than other reviewers have not already said? I have been visiting Hanuman fairly regularly for a very long time and did so again recently. Tuesday evening, and not a spare seat anywhere, so booking is essential even at traditionally slow times. For me, you just cant go past the oysters and pandan chicken entree, but I... More

I went to Hanuman on a business dinner. The food was again top notch. As I'd been several times before I concentrated on trying something different. For the first time I tried the tasting plate entrees and especially liked the beef. Each of the 8 people tried different meals and one said that the Butter Chicken was the best she'd... More

Excellent food and wine, although pricey it is worth splashing out. The waitress missed a dish that we ordered but we realised we had plenty to go around without it. Would certainly return.

The food at Hanuman is delicious, there is a good variety to choose from on the menu both for food and drinks. There is seating indoors and out. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Pricewise, very good value for money. Went there twice and both times it was pretty busy on a week night which shows it is popular.... More

On a ladies trip we recently ate dinner at this restaurant and shared quite a few meals. The wait staff (especially Marica) were extremely knowledgeable about their food as well as being very accommodating, friendly and efficient. The food was some of the best Asian food we had ever had from anywhere in the world. We all travel a lot... More

Darwin is an old friend and having been to this site before when it was Siggis and once before in the Hanuman incarnation I was hoping for the best. A sometime resident told us to go across the road to the Chinese because Hanuman "didn't know if it was Indian or Thai." Im happy to say we didn't listen as... More

We were staying in the Double Tree Hilton which is close by and decided to go out for dinner, what a surprise. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food was excellent, but be pre paired because the main courses were quite big, so take an appetite.

I went with some friends to Hanumans after spending a year uming and ahing over whether to go. I was highly impressed, loved the set up of the restaurant and the business reflects the quality of the food. Butter chicken lovers will be in heaven, it was absolutely delicious! There is cheaper Indians around but this one is a must... More
