Good mix of Asian foods, all served in smaller sized, but sufficient quantities. Quite noisy, so best for a group, not suitable for a couple. A bit pricy for what you get!

The service can occasionally be a little slow, or rather that the waiters can be busy, however the food is fantastic. We ate here as a group last week, the trumpet mushroom starter is fantastic and I am a fan of the goat Rogan Josh. We needed a restaurant that served veggie, gluten free as well as catering to my...

The wait staff were brilliant as was the food. The staff could not be more helpful. The four at our table were commenting how good the food was, absolutely delicious and we couldn't manage to eat it all. A mixture of Indian and Thai food that was absolutely mouth watering. Drink waiter made sure that we lubricated by keeping his... More

One of my all time favourite places to eat. We went there with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Excellent food at very reasonable prices. There is a reason it is one of Darwin's most popular restaurants, it's worth checking out. My only problem is picking a favourite dish. The Hanuman Oysters are amazing, and the Masala Lamb Cutlets are... More

During the V8s everyone who was anyone was at the place at least twice. A fusion between Indian and Thai - the food was devine and mouth watering. You pay a little more but so so worth it

Had an amazing dinner again at Hanuman's, usually we have a large meal with 3-4 dishes between 4 people. But last night the 2 of us had an hour before going to the entertainment centre and we had 6 starter plates! The different flavours, textures, smells and sights where amazing! Because they are starter plates they come out very quickly,... More

This was one of my favourite restaurants. Visited for dine in and take away numerous times but I think the Staff and the management started to take local customer for granted and their Venue also needs a bit of renovation. Last visit was a dine in and food was really nice as usual. However there was a couple of cockroaches... More

Hanuman is a mixture of Indian, Thai & Malay dishes and all are absolutely exquisite. It is a little more expensive than the average Asian restaurant but well worth it. The Darwin restaurant is a good size with both indoor and outdoor seating, and is a place to dress up a little bit and make a night of it. The... 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.
