“Great service from waitstaff”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

We decided to dine here as the menu looked interesting. Shortly after being seated, one of the cheerful and enthusiastic waitstaff brought water and menus. It's a pity that the two soups we ordered - tom yum goong and tak kha gai were extremely salty. They were both packed with ingredients, but the former lacked spiciness. This was quite disappointing, given that tom yum goong is such an icon of Thai cuisine.

The wok-tossed seafood was OK, as was the red duck curry, but we thought that the portion sizes were somewhat lacking - taking into consideration the prices ($32 and $27, respectively). The so-called Thai jasmine rice was only warm when served and we were not sure if it was indeed jasmine rice. The grains seemed too fat and the fragrance just wasn't there.

The night we dined there, the restaurant was packed. We are not sure if that is because the other dishes are great or some other reason.

Most unlikely to return.

“Simply Outstanding !”
Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

This is a seriously top class restaurant. The food is outstanding and easily deserves 5 stars. The red duck curry was the best curry I have ever tasted period. Considering the high quality the food is reasonably priced. Atmosphere is also great and staff very friendly. A must if you are visiting Alice!

“Best restaurant in Alice Springs”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

Hanuman was recommended by Lonely Planet and definitely lived up to expectations. It was a nicely decorated Thai/Indian restaurant inside the Doubletree Hotel. Service was good, food excellent. Some nice different dishes too like the oysters. Very much typical Thai ambience. Recommend you book. We were very impressed and when we flew to Darwin we made sure we tried Hanuman there too which actually wasn't quite as good. Also one in Adelaide.

“Great service, great food, great drinks”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

Hanuman Alice Springs is terribly busy; however despite this and us being a tad indecisive they made everything run smoothly. We were able to have our chit chat etc undisturbed. I remember I asked for a martini and while the bar staff didn't know what I meant, I somehow ended up with a perfect Classic Martini. Then (to our astonishment) they were willing to split the bill six ways for us! Much appreciated, over and above reasonable expectations for a restaurant but such a welcome measure that didn't appear to bother them. I wish more establishments did this.
