“great food and service in middle of Cairns”
Review of The Hanuman Restaurant - CLOSED

The Hanuman Restaurant
Cuisines: Indian, Thai
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Special occasions, Large groups, Romantic, Business meetings
Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, Late Night, Reservations
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.

Reviewed May 21, 2013

centrally located in the lobby of the Hilton. It does not feel like a Hilton restaurant. Indian with Asian influence. Great service and good value for a high end product.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

I was expecting something great from this restaurant and was looking forward to going there, but was disappointed. The food was no better than takeaway. The main course of prawns was terrible. They tasted like overcooked frozen prawns with a very heavy overly sweet sauce. The tasting plate was ok but not much better. The only positive was the oysters. The staff tried to clear plates before we were even finished. On a positive note the restaurant setting is lovely.

“Enjoyable night”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We were a group of 6 looking for a restaurant that we coud all be happy with , Never a easy task. We were pleasently surprised , The Indian curries we ordered were very tastey and so was the other dishes we ordered such as Thai dishes and the whole fish. The service was excelent, the wine was reasonabley priced and the restaurant comfortable and clean.We would certainly recomend this restaurant for Indian & Asian cusine.

“The best Indian food hotel in Australia”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Very classy experience where food served was of top quality. A good combination of Asian food options with good choices for vegetarians. Very supportive staff who were happy to offer prompt service. Would recommend a visit at least once if on a short trip to Cairns for Indian food

“A Mixed Asian Menu and it's all Good!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Someone knows how to make a fine curry from many different countries and regions in this resturant! Hanuman has a small menu but delicious. Service is efficient and friendly. The decor is beautiful and wine list sufficient. As someone who has tried many resturants in Cairns this is only one of two I would say is excellent. Enjoy!
