Monsoons has one of the best value lunches in town as the $15 includes a soft drink. However, my most recent lunch wasn't the best. I was deciding between the Chicken Schnitzel and the Lamb Keftas and decided to choose the Chicken Schnitzel with mushroom sauce for an extra $1 because the salad was a fennel and coriander salad and...

This is a real nice bar in the middle of Darwin. You'll get a lot of backpackers or over night cruise workers. A lot of fun with great djs, the price is where it hurts. Beer is $12 a pop but it's pretty big so you could get nice and tipsy off of 3!

I just rated on the club not the restaurant and the club was really bad. The club is a normal club, nothing special and actually perfekt to have fun with a group of friends(that's why I gave two stars not one) if there wouldn't be the security people. We came really early to the club, of course we had some... More

Good cheap drinks, friendly service, a strange mixture of dance music and a wandering guitarist playing downbeat 80's ballads... Crowd on a Sunday night was a blend of drunk FIFO workers and locals on the tail end of a Sunday session - not the place for a quiet beer but if you're up for a party it's the place to... More

This is a very busy and popular pub on Mitchell Street. It also is a restaurant! We went early but is was slowly building up fot the evening. The beer was OK, cold as you'd expect. Prices were OK. Believe the bar can get crazy at times!
