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.

The food was amazing but the service was pretty bad. I go to this restaurant often and all the other times was five stars but today...

Went to Hanuman upon TripAdvisor recommendations. Lovely meal and lovely staff. Would have given 5/5 but waiter thought durum wheat flour was gluten free - so maybe a little more training on GF for staff would be great as they had a GF menu.

Absolutely loved eating here so much so we went back a second time. Great food, fantastic menu & the service was really good. Its a busy place so it does get noisy. Definitely recommend eating here.

Went for my birthday dinner on a Saturday, as they don't do lunches Saturday/Sunday. We booked for 6pm and were the first there. By the time we left, it was packed. A good indicator of a popular restaurant. After living in Darwin for many many years, this was my first visit. I found the staff to be exceptional, friendly, amusing... More

Unlike many Indo-Asian restaurants, Hanuman's desserts are well worth sampling. Beautifully presented, the flavours and textures are superb. We ordered four main courses to share, lamb, beef and two vegetarian dishes with three serves of the coconut pandan flavoured rice. This was an excellent amount of food between four and we were not so full that we couldn't enjoy those... 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.
