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.

Awesome food.

Was in Darwin for a couple of weeks and went here twice. The food is terrific and I am very fussy when it comes to asian food. The service was hit and miss. We could definitely have returned there if we had more time. Must be No. 1 for food in Darwin, surely. None of the other few restaurants... read more

dropped in for a last minute business dinner, my guest remarked that you normally have to line up to get a table and we were able to walk straight in. dinner was excellent and service attentive - may be due to a slow night? certainly on my list of restaurants that i would be happy to return to.

Great food, great service, what's not to love?! The price is on the higher end but it is definitely worth it! Would have to be one of the best beef massaman curries I've tasted

Loved the food here for something just a little different. As a business dinner it wasn't to formal, just enough.

This is a must to have dinner at. We had the Meen Moolie, Red Curry of Duck, Beef Massaman and Kang Kong Greens. All four dishes were very tasty and highly recommend. The wait staff were extremely friendly and fast and the atmosphere was outstanding. Definitely a place to relax and enjoy.

We were recommended to the restaurant and was not disappointed. We asked the waitress for help in choosing our food. The food, service and wine very good. Spot on.

We had an excellent meal sharing some wonderful dishes. Difficult to get drinks refilled, so we went without. Likewise trying to pay the bill.
