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.

“Excellent unique restaurant with delicious food”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

The Hanuman serves excellent food, including their signature oysters and prawns. The currys are filled with flavour and depth without being oily or overly creamy. We left feeling thoroughly satisfied. Their was only one slip up with service, which was more than made up for during the evening. Not much of a view in the evenings once its dark, but the atmosphere was still great and plenty of people dining even on a Monday night. Would always recommend this place and would return myself.

Well done :)

“Asian Inspiration”
Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

The major Asian cuisines are represented and they were done well. Tom Yum soup brilliant. Pork Belly a little bland but so tender. Chicken parcels were a delight. Chicken green curry outstanding.

Creme Brulee. I demolished the dessert. It was fabulous.

Very fancy and beautiful restaurant. Definitelt visit for yummy high range Asian cuisine.

“Beautiful Food”

This is a fine dining Asian restaurant that delivers the goods. Fine location with a view out over the Trinity Inlet and a selection of beautiful dishes. Friendly staff and easy to find.

“Very tasty!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Have dined in all three Hanuman's several times. None are as good as the original in Alice Springs but this one comes pretty close. Chicken green curry was very very good. Service was pretty good as well.

“great food and service in middle of Cairns”
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.
