My husband and I went for a birthday lunch with our young daughter. The food was, as always, delicious. My favourite oysters were back to their delicious best and the butter chicken was great. Vindaloo was sensational and our daughter actually ate!!! She enjoyed the chicken satay's and nann bread and salad. Service was great and they even bought out... More

It's not cheap, but the food is amazing. The best massamun beef in all of Darwin, without a doubt. Service was fine; I've had better, but I've had worse too. The sign says no thongs, indicating a certain dress standard is required; but most people seemed to be wearing thongs, which was fine as everybody eating there was dressed for... More

I first ate here about 10 years ago, this was the best restaurant in Darwin back then. Still is! They offer a wide selection of Thai and Indian cuisine - both traditional and fusion dishes. Service is always friendly. I go here once a month or so and it never disappoints.

The food was good but I've had better Indian at Cullen Bay. Was a little too hot sitting outside. The service wasn't that good. We order drinks three times and they were so slow. I had to keep looking around to attract the attention of staff. I had heard it was a great place to dine but that was not... More

Very easy to share a variety of flavours, only problem is deciding what to order. It is close to the Darwin Entertainment Centre so great to go before a show.

Tried and tasted and not overly excited about returning. However, it depends upon your taste. Good choice if you like spicy food.

Its bit on expensive end. But, its the best of all the restaurants I have been to in Darwin during my 4 days stay. Open for dinner only. Booking... More

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.
