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.

wow....wasn't expecting this quality fit out for a Darwin restaurant. Ambience is buzzing, staff are on their toes all night and deliver all food and beverage with flair. The food is all very fresh, tasty and delicious. We made a booking and it looked like we may have been in trouble if we didn't. Lovely people - we couldn't falter... More

It has been a few years since i have been to the (Darwin) Hanuman, so was looking forward to a great nite and was not one bit disappointed. Although it was a busy Friday night - we were well and truly looked after. We followed Gaven's recommendations for entrees and mains - and clearly thats an easy way to ensure... More

I have been a few times to Hanuman and have always found the food of excellent quality. Perhaps a little pricey, but I don't mind if you are enjoying what you order. Staff are friendly, great atmosphere. Definitely would recommend.

The best indian restaurant in Darwin, the food is finger licking awesome and the service is excellent. Advise - book a table in advance or be prepared to sit on a stool facing the street.

What a wonderful dining experience from the service to the food everything was very good. I went with work colleagues. The restaurant itself was large and had a good vibe. Service was faultless if anything our male waiter was a bit over the top but that was fine. The food we ordered a variety of dishes including duck in a... More

We visited on a very busy Saturday night. Make sure you book a table in advance. My partner is a big fan of this Hilton restaurant and had been keen to try the Darwin restaurant for sometime. This restaurant is large with indoor and outdoor setting. A little too large maybe as it was very noisy once full. The spicy... More
