Description: 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. The furnishings, tableware and artworks have been sourced from around the world and the lighting will take your breath away.

I had the pleasure of being at Hanuman earlier in October. The menu is great, and the setting is stunning. The service was kind of average, but in fairness the place was very busy. Great Asian Fusion spot, great wine menu.

Our waitress, Maricar was one of the most friendly, genuine waitresses I've ever had. I accidentally bumped into her and broke a wine glass and felt so terrible but she just made a joke and laughed it off. Then, the table behind us was giving her a hard time and she handled it very professionally. Our food came out very... More

First contact was very snooty, which doesn't help with impressions. The rest of the staff were most courteous. Food was average, certainly not justifying the amount charged . Tikka chicken was excellent, satay average. I certainly wouldn't revisit.

We had a group of about 13 people for dinner. About ten of us had the banquet. The food was fine, once it came. We waited over an hour for the entree then a half hour for the main after that was cleared and simply asked for our desert to go. The food was fine, but wasn't worth the wait.... More

This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in Darwin. If you love thai and indian flavours in your food then you will love this place! Loved by locals and tourists alike.

Just arrived home from dinner at this great restaurant. This was the venue of our conference dinner with lots of delegates from around Australia. I was proud to be a local resident as everyone at the dinner was so impressed by the food, service and surroundings. Great staff as well. Well done

As I was on business, I dined alone which is not always ideal however I was in a good part of the restaurant, They have another location in Alice Springs which I tried and was also happy with. I was recommended the Oysters but were not spectacular although the Massaman Curry was spectacular.

We ate at Hanuman Darwin the other night and it was very nice. We've been there before on a weekend and the food and service is consistent. We ordered garlic naan (awesome), Butter chicken and the Pork Belly - all delicious. The food on the menu is quite expensive, slightly overpriced, however the quantity of the food is definitely enough... More

I am a local to the Northern Territory and Hanumans is by far the best Indian / Thai cuisine in The Territory! I dine out a lot and have high expectations, but every time I visit I find it hard to find any issues with the service and food. Food tastes great and is full of flavour, great range of... More

It was our second time at Hanuman. We ordered a selection of entrées and mains to share and every dish was superb. I find that the restaurant is lacking atmosphere but will definitely be coming back for the fantastic food.
