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.

Food is generally good on each visit that I've been here, although I'm gradually learning what to choose through trial and error. The whole fish, for example, was so overdone on one occasion that I'd never choose that again but curries are good. Not sure of the attraction of 'money bags' either so... read more

I was invited by a work colleague to meet for dinner here. I knew it must be good because there was a queue waiting at 5:50pm on a Tuesday! The place is beautiful, the staff are really attentive and fun yet very particular. The food was crazy good. I am not a huge fan of Indian, but I was in... More

We had decided to give Mitchell Street a go for a night our in Darwin, but to be honest, weren't that impressed until we got to Hanuman. Service was excellent and the food great. We over-ordered and were flagging, but our waiter immediately spotted the signs and organised the bill and a doggy bag straight away. The food tasted just... More

Two at our table didn't get their meals and the waiters had to be called back. The food itself was delicious when it came and we were told they were training staff so that may have explained it...but we were still customers, not trainers. I am from a cold climate and was so cold inside we were given shawls (which... More

Hanuman had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent. Gavin, our waiter, kept us entertained with his quick wit and humour. The food was served quite quickly. Prices were reasonable for the excellent quality of the meal. Certainly the best dinner we had in the week we spent in Darwin. Eat early or make... More

Had dinner at Hanuman and fallowing all other reviewers tried the Butter Chicken. Absolutely cracker dish, as was the rest of the meal. A definite place to book if you want to be able to enjoy the air conditioned section. Recommend it to all.

My wife and I had dinner here our last night in Darwin. We wish we had found the restaurant sooner. It was definitely the best restaurant in Darwin as far as we are concerned.
