This place is a Darwin institution. Amazing food and good service. The red duck curry is my personal favourite.

A favourite of mine for over 15 years! Over the years many things have changed but certainly not the food and its quality. Be adventurous and try something new and exciting! Back there again this week and I will be ordering the Oysters x 2!

Hanuman is our favourite place to eat, it always provides greet food and superb attentive service. We've had so many great meals at Hanuman and enjoy the consistent professional service and food. This is by far the best casual dining restaurant in town and is now something of a Darwin institution; Hanuman's spicy fishy for two is worth trying and... More

Good cocktail menu and massive food menu. Being Sri Lankan, I was a little disappointed with the Love Cake dessert. The rest of the food menu was phenomenal and the service staff were second to none. Get into the Barramundi curry and the Jungle Curry.

If you are in Darwin you really need to make time to have a meal at Hanuman. The food is great and the staff are friendly. Although it looks busy, don't be put off by the queue for a table. We only had to wait 10 minutes.

Hanuman Darwin is always my favorite but recently it's not any more. I had very bad experience in my recent visit in Alice spring Hanuman. I am back in Darwin so visited with my friends it's really bad. The food was cold and tasteless not hanuman standard. But service was ok.i am not sure what's going on.

We ordered too much food. Main dishes are large as are the so called small plates. The food was good but we could not finish everything. The medium hot dish was more spicy than expected.

Have always loved every meal that I have had here. I have been here multiple times and tried there rich and delicious massaman, korma, butter chicken, and their signature oysters. All were delicious.
