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.

The food was delicious! We had a group of 10 sharing a few dishes. Everything was delicious. The location is easy to get to and the bar was fully stocked. A bit on the pricey side but worth it.

For me this is a sort of special occasion venue. Dining room is immaculate, service is spot on and food consistent. Yes you pay for these things however I was still a little surprised when I received the bill.

We came on a Saturday night without a reservation. The place was packed but we got a table after a short wait of about 5 minutes. The food was delicious but the service was slow and not too attentive. After our appetizers came out we found ourselves waiting quite a long time for our main course. Someone did finally come...

Friday night birthday party with fifteen guests. The menu had to cater for vegetarians, carnivores and a peanut allergy. Suman was brilliant in helping me make the arrangements and we finally settled on two customised banquets; vegetarian for 7 and meat and seafood for 8. So the plates appeared on the table and everyone helped themselves to a wide range... More

I've dined here a few times before & have always had lovely meals. Tonight however was exceptional. Our waiter, Gavin, was a true professional, from recommending some amazing dishes, to timing the courses to perfection and to making us feel so welcome. It's so refreshing to feel a genuine warmth from someone who clearly enjoys their job. He was discreetly... More

We went there on our last day in Darwin for dinner. Absolutely stunning food. Both vegie & non veg food was exceptionally prepared & presented. Loved every morsel. Friendly service. however, difficult to get their attention if you are sitting outside. The restaurant gets quite busy. So, I would recommend booking before showing up.
