Description: 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.

Great food and good service made for an enjoyable meal. There are obvious problems with some wait staff having a lack of English, but the senior staff make sure everything runs smoothly. The food was delicious with Indian or Thai style dominating the menu. I have to say it was the best Pad Thai I have had in years. The... More

Everything on the menu at Hanuman is delicious. It is worth a dinner when you're in Darwin! The range of cuisine is wonderful for those that want Thai or Indian or Japanese. There's something for everyone.

We went there for lunch with 4 other people. What a wonderful place. The food was to die for, Gavin, our waiter couldn't have done his job any better and the whole experience was very memorable. Highly recommend it if you are ever in Darwin. We have heard they have opened one in Adelaide, can't wait to go there when... More

Went here on recommendations from a local. We had the butter chicken and the red curry with duck. The butter chicken is their signature dish, and it's quite possibly the best Indian type dish I've ever had! The duck was more Thai and we both thought it was the best Thai we've had! Complement the food with Flametree Chardonnay which... More

As always the food was Devine. Everything from the menu we selected was very tasty and authentic. The staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely go back and will continue to recommend the restaurant to others.

I wish I could give this restaurant an excellent rating. We enjoyed the faultless service and ambience and the large food portions. What we were disappointed with was the food temperature.The Bombay Pakoras were served promptly as an entree. For mains I had the chicken chettinad, and my husband had the slipper lobster. I finished with a black rice brûlée.... More

This is the best restaurant for Asian food in Darwin. You might pay a little more, but the quality of the dining experience is top class. I like to have duck, or red curry. This is a popular restaurant so be sure to book. They will do take outs if there are no tables available. The chef is well known... More

Initial service was excellent and food was delivered within a reasonable time, and was very nice and well worth the visit. Our very efficient waiter suddenly disappeared towards the end of our meal and left us high and dry! Obviously he had come to end of his shift - which happened to be before we had finished our meal!
