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.

Excellent food

Lovely restaurant, some tables indoors and some in the open air which was perfect. Great menu, food was excellent, portions are really large (we ordered far too much) - not the cheapest, but still a very good restaurant.

Wide-open windows allow warm breezes to circulate about the well-spaced tables and window-side counters. Hanuman's food is mainly Indian with some Thai and Nonya dishes added for interest, although I'm not sure those flavours wouldn't clash. We stuck with Indian choices, which turned out to be richly spiced and satisfying. The menu does not list gluten- or dairy-free options but... More

Atmosphere is cosy. Food is good. Not much options for vegetarians. In starters Samosa are good but pakora are something that you won't regret, if you didn't have one.

My Husband and I recently dined here before a show at the entertainment centre. Even though it was a very early dinner the staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about both the menu and the wine list. We let them know we were limited for time and still managed a wonderful 3 course meal and a sneaky cocktail to top... More

Food is excellent and decent portions, Staff are professional and helpful, sometimes are a bit slow if they are quite busy but they have a great cocktail menu to keep you going, some of which were created by staff. I've been there a couple of times and am always satisfied when leaving

This restaurant has always been highly recommended to me and I had once eaten there when it was at another location in Darwin but that was some years ago. Decided to go back and it try it again. It was a busy weekend night, the place was full. We were seated and our order was taken very promptly. It didn't... More

Excellent food and wonderful service from very friendly staff. Clean tidy and good value for money for quality food. The variety of wonderful spicy entrees and mains was excellent. Highly recommended for any visit to Darwin.

One of Darwins best restaurants. The food is always fresh love the menu. You can order a selection of dishes and share or order your favourite dish all to yourself..The oysters as starter are amazing. The service can sometimes be slow and not the cheapest but you get what you pay for
