Dining options: Lunch, Dinner, Late Night, Highchairs Available, Reservations, Seating, Serves Alcohol, Waitstaff
Description: Situated inside the Hilton Cairns Hotel and overlooking the Trinity Inlet, Hanuman Cairns is the latest addition to the Hanuman stable.Gently undulating panels cast curves of light and shade across the restaurant's entrance, creating an exotic and luxuriant mood. The rich, dark tones in the furnishings combine with intriguing artworks and ceramics that Jimmy has collected throughout south-east Asia.A visit to Hanuman Cairns will tantalise all the senses before wowing the taste buds as only Hanuman can.

“Bargain $15 lunch special”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I had lunch here today with some friends. Hanuman has a $15 Bento Box lunch special Monday to Friday. It includes rice, salad, two curries and a chutney/sauce. The food was delicious, the service was great as was the view. Highly recommend.

“Best meal in Cairns”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have eaten at Hanuman's Cairns, Alice Springs and Darwin and on my return to Cairns this week I enjoyed another fabulous meal at Hanuman's. Service exceptional with our waitress only to happy to please and accommodate gluten free requirements for one of our guests. We ordered the banquet which had an abundance of food and variety on offer and at the last minute the waitress liaised with chef to accommodate a gluten free dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant with food, ambiance and service of a very high standard.
