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 foods but not fond of the management. The manager is rude and shout at staff like no one around. Ruin our atmosphere, my wife and me were trying to enjoy our dinner. We are anti Bully so hate to see stuff like that around a famous restaurant.

Excellent food, great Indian cuisine to chose from and helpful staff. Highly recommended. We quiet often chose a vast selection of the starters and forego the main courses. The Hanuman Oysters are to die for.

Lively atmosphere in a spacious setting which emulates both contemporary and traditional decor. Great staff and quick service, especially for a busy night. Enjoyed the mocktails, hearty tom yum goong, well balanced coconut rice, melt in the mouth roti and a couple of spicy seafood dishes. Thoroughly satisfying. Prices seemed on the high side compared with Sydney but first restaurant... More

Excellent Malaysian/Thai cuisine with efficient and some times very friendly service.  We booked which was essential on a Friday and went back as we enjoyed it so much on Sunday which was much quieter.  Good range of old favorites and some speciality dishes, everything we had was excellent really enjoyed the red duck curry and especially the naan bread and...

We thought the food was absolutely amazing. A cross between Indian, Asian cuisine with Nan and Roti bread, Kashmiri Chicken, Chicken rapped in palm leaf with ginger and a divine Slipper Lobster dish with boiled rice. Simply gorgeous.

Food was good, but nothing special. We had lunch and it was very quiet and as a result lacked atmosphere. Might be more of a buzz for dinner. We ate inside where it is quite formal. Outside would be more casual/relaxed. Appears very popular with the locals based on the phone calls making dinner reservations.

Usually the night time dining generates a busier atmosphere which appeals to some but not to others. For your future dining needs, please do call us and we will try to... More

Nice food, great service, lovely setting. We had a very enjoyable night when the restaurant was very busy. Service was very good and our waiter extremely personable, a little eccentric but on the mark with his suggestion on food and wine. Would definitely go again next time we are in Darwin.
