Came in early and had the wild barramundi in light curry with a bit of garlic naan. Very well done, not the heavy curry you often get in other places where they add lots of ghee in. The waiters were very friendly and didn't bother me as I take my time eating my dinner. It does fill up later on,... More

I visited Hanuman twice in August. The first time i dined alone, and was very grateful for the excellent service … advice on dishes that would have been too big for one, and even the offer of 1/2 serves on some dishes. Excellent service and great food.

This is a large and crowded restaurant and I was glad we had booked outside as it was very noisy inside. The flavours of the food were beautiful (a barramundi dish excelled). The wine we selected wasn't available, but the second choice was. We made our choices quickly and made sure we got a waiter's eye as we could see... More

Sensational restaurant with fresh food and amazing flavours. We were recommended by locals and it certainly didn't disappoint. Indian fusion food of the highest quality, on the expensive side but truly value for money. Lemongrass oysters were amazing, the mushroom entrée are a must. Barramundi curry dish was great and so was the duck with lychee. I don't think you... More

Had a quiet weekday lunch here while on a short trip to Darwin in July and I was very impressed by firstly, the food, but also the presentation of the restaurant and friendly staff. Would visit again and recommend to others. Try the Trumpet Mushrooms!

Recommended by locals to us. Great atmosphere,good staff and the food was A1. We were told about the lemongrass oysters and the mushroom entree before hand and weren't disappointed. Had a great barra dish in a spiced curry sauce and a lovely duck curry with lychees. Great food at a good price.

This is hands down my favourite restaurant in Darwin. The missus and I have been dining here for years, and always bring our friends/family when they visit. There are two additional franchises, located in Alice Springs, and Cairns; we've eaten there too, and the entire experience was up to the same standard across all three venues. It's not the cheapest... More

Food was good with a lot of variety. Service a bit slow especially for thirsty diners. Not cheap but probably reasonable value.

Its not often that you can compliment a restaurant on the quality of its food, drinks, décor AND service, but Hanuman Restaurant has and delivers it all. From unique dishes, an excellent drinks list (including some very good wine selections), décor that compliments the food theme and outstanding service this is a must try restaurant in Darwin
