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.

Very good but not impressive

I've been here with few friends and we had tasting plates and few choices of curries and mains, I loved the pandan chicken and the signature oysters, the beef in both the curries we tried was a bit tough but had really good flavor, the butter chicken was lovely.

Wonderful restaurant, certainly worth a visit and requires a booking to make sure you don't miss out. Food is fabulous and caters for all palates.

We chose Hanuman because they serve halal. The atmosphere is conducive to meeting up with friends, enjoying a nice meal and planning the rest of your evening. It is a bit loud, but the wait staff is excellent and attentive. Everyone's food was delicious and served quickly. The restaurant was busy, so we were surprised at how fast our meals... More

My sister and I went to Hanuman's several times while we were in Darwin without a reservation. This is a buzzing busy restaurant but the staff were incredibly helpful and fast. We were seated within 10 minutes of arrival and food was on the table within 10 minutes of ordering. This is a well oiled machine. We loved the Meen... More

Very nice décor, clean and fresh. Efficient service and a very extensive menu. Ordered the deep fried fish and a wine and the fish arrived within 5 minutes and before the wine. I realise that there has to be a bit of pre cooking but that was over the top. The fish was dry and the sauce way too sweet.... More

We wanted to get takeaway but get something special. Hanuman food; Asian/Indian fusion in Mitchell Street in Darwin is delicious. The restaurant was buzzing with vibrant atmosphere, the food was ready quickly for our pick up and all the courses we ordered were delightful. Our favourite was the Barramundi curry - Meen Moolie, but the eggplant vegetarian dish was fabulous... More

Beautiful Asian food (what we ate was mostly Indian), great wine list, good service, laid back vibe, beautifully decorated restaurant. Not too expensive either. Was a bit noisy and tables were quite close to each other, so maybe not ideal for a romantic dinner for two, but I would go back if I'm ever in Darwin again.

Although when I was there it was by and tad noisy, the variety and quality of the food and the terrific service made it a most enjoyable evening. It was hard to choose from the variety offered on the menu - so may favourites choose from.
