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.

I wondered how Hanumans maintains its reputation. The food was tasty but the banquet we ordered contained very, very small servings that were brought out in a seemingly random fashion. The service was disgraceful. The staff did not appear to understand anything we asked. There were long waits for drinks and when they did arrive there were instances they were... More

As always the food was of a high standard. Service however was disjointed and there did not seem to be many senior staff on duty. One main meal was served when everyone else was almost finished. Very hard to enjoy conversation as it was very crowded and noisy.

2 families dining out after a show at the entertainment center. Food was delicious and Gavin topped off the night with his humour and excellent customer service

Friendly service, joked around about giving me a job when I started doing things for myself. The food was good, with large portions. I would suggest you don't need a main for every person when eating here.

Went here after being told it was a must. The food was great, with the exception of the elusive entre that took an hour to arrive (cold and tough). The okra was great and the kofta curry fantastic. The cocktails weren't too bad either. Just a pity about the appalling service, I think the poor girl was out of her... More

This restaurant is an old favourite although we have not been for some months. Great meal, excellent service and good wine menu. You have the option of inside in the air conditioning or outside under cover, we chose inside with air conditioning as it is the build up to the wet season in Darwin at the moment. Would recommend if... More

Expensive but brilliant food!! So yummo, you'll need their doggy bags because their is no way you'll leave even a tiny bit of their food on your plate. Have been a few times and the staff are always friendly and helpful and the place itself is exquisitely designed and appointed! You will not be disappointed!

Had a fabulous meal at Hanuman as always ... We decided on curries all round ... The duck was the pick of them but all were delicious. The individual meals are large so if you are hungry great but easy to over order ... T

Hanuman Restaurant is centrally located in Darwin and easy to walk to if you are in town. Unlike the other restaurants in the area it has a bit more upscale feel. Nice store front and well appointed dining area. We sat at a table cloth covered table and were served fairly quickly. The menu is pretty extensive and, to our... More
