We have been here twice now and both times were just as impressive as each other. The meals came out extremely quickly and were served by friendly and efficient staff. The meals have all been full of punchy flavours and are generous portions. We will definitely be coming back and recommending to others.

The quality of restaurants in Darwin varies a lot but for consistency of quality of food, quality of service and value you can't go past Hanuman Restaurant Darwin. This restaurant is an NT institution and is a must go place during your Darwin visit. Authentic Thai and Maly dishes are offered with a few Hanuman specialties like the Money Bags... More

Great service, amazing food, friendly staff. A delicious twist on Thai, Malaysian, Indian cuisine. A nice comfortable setting with a good selection of food choices. Perfect for a nice night for two or a small group. The only fault is the napkins are like cardboard.

Great selection of dishes to choose from to cater for all tastes and cultural backgrounds. Butter Chicken and Chicken cashew were a standout as was the personalised service from the Manager.

Not cheap and cheerful but good value as the food is amazing. The signature oysters are to die for as are the trumpet mushrooms and the whole fish. Great place for an occasion.

Service is great, food is very tasty but a little pricey. Great atmosphere inside. Would recommend this restaurant to couples. Not really suitable to take kids. Overall, really liked it.

Very disappointed, went for a work function and the service was terrible. We were there three hours and got offered one drink. Food was pretty good although the fish was a bit dry. Might be getting a bit complacent resting on past reputation.

Authentic nonya food in the heart of Darwin. Great choice of malaysian, thai and indian food. Very very busy when we visited but well worth it.

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.
