My wife and our two teenage children met friends with their two teenage children for dinner at the Hanuman. The food was good overall as always, but the service left a lot to be desired. Our complex order for eight was mixed up with someone else's order for perhaps two diners, so it took ages to get the food we... More

This is always a great food experience and each dish has its own unique flavour. Only problen is that we always order too much but it's hard not to if you want to experience a range of dishes. Always recommending to friends and visitors.

Dropped in with a booking and got a table for two inside. Superb food, great service, hard to know what else to say other than a reasonable bill for what we had. Will go again

It was really busy (which i always take as a good sign) yet we did not have to wait long. We loved the flavours in our duck curry & asian pork belly, really glad we stopped here and reasonable priced.

Best Indian restaurant dining I've yet to come across in Darwin. The food was spectacular and the staff were well accommodating!

We didn't have a booking and it was Saturday night and the place was buzzing. But within five to ten minutes they'd found us a table. The food was absolutely delicious with really prompt friendly service. A must visit if you're in Darwin and enjoy great quality Thai food.

We ordered a takeaway meal consisting of Masala lamb cutlets, Thai crispy whole fish and nonya fried rice. We started with the lamb cutlets and thought we were onto something special here but the crispy whole fish and nonya fried rice were very disappointing. Thai style to me suggests flavours like coriander, lemon grass, ginger etc but instead we got... More

Dear Barry H, It disappoints me that we were not able to deliver the standards to you that we pride our selves on at Hanuman. I will report your comments to the chefs for reflection. I do hope you will consider us again in future. We do a mean Red Duck Curry and other fantastic dished. Thank you for taking... More

Nice and cool inside this iconic Darwin eatery, with friendly efficient staff. Excellent range of food on menu ranging from Thai dishes to Indian. All dishes we ordered were delicious, starting with the platter for entree, then whole Barramundi, Thai green chicken curry, prawns, etc.

Look, the food was pretty good, big enough portions, yummy enough; was just expecting excellent since it is hailed as number one in Darwin blah blah blah. The service was lacking, but it was a Saturday night. Frightfully expensive overall I believe for this level of food, service and atmosphere.

Hi Karen L, We do consider ourselves as one of the best in Darwin, and that is why when guests have poor service it really disappoints me. We pride ourselves on the authenticity of the food we serve, and reading you did not think it was excellent shocks me. I am incredibly sorry we were not able to deliver you... More

Went here for my birthday and was a little dissapointed. Waited 10 mins just to be asked if we would like a drink then waited 25 mins for it to arrive. Restaurant wasn't overly busy, tasting plate was okay but nothing to rave about. Same to say about the currys, I've had better. Not bad food just nothing to write... 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.
