I get to know this restaurant from Lonely Planet. The curry there serving is excellent but a little bit too expensive for me.

Really enjoyed every aspect of this restaurant. The food was fantastic, the menu had too many interesting things to choose from... I wanted to try everything! Looking around at other tables made choosing just a difficult... you do eat with your eyes first!!! It all looked and smelt wonderful. The tables are a little too close for my liking, however,...

This restaurant is very popular. Booking is recommended. The food and service was great but we found the air conditioning too cold after being in Darwin heat all day. We were unable to get a table in the open area cooled by fans which we would have preferred.

We stopped in twice to pick up Indian and Thai takeaway meals here, even though it was not that close to our Airbnb base. It was well recommended by locals we met. The restaurant is beautiful, there's great crockery, the ambience is welcoming and the temperature is cool, (many fans and good air conditioning). We enjoyed the attentive service and... More

Average food with poor service and high price. Wrong curry was sent out. When we asked to change the dish waiter advised it has the same curry sauce.

We visited Hanuman and loved the food and lively atmosphere. The menu gives an indication of how hot the dishes will be (we loved the spice and heat!) and there is something for everyone. At busy times, it can get quite noisy. Good for going out with friends and family.

Apart from the fact it was a very busy restaurant and we had a little trouble getting someone's attention to bring us a menu when we arrived, when we finally ordered, the food came to our table promptly, and it was delicious. Located right in the CBD district the decor and atmosphere was lively. Recommended.

Hanuman might very well be a nice place, but if it's the only nice place you have the budget for, skip it. The atmosphere is lovely and the service was good, but I felt the food was the same as it'd been down the street for a third of the price. There seemed to be a few menu options which... More

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.
