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

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.

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

Absolutely loved this restaurant which was recommended to us in Adelaide. The building itself is fabulous with really high ceilings. We sat outside it was perfect. The service was great for such a big restaurant. The food was good some familiar Dishes served really creatively. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

For Darwin, this is quite a nice restaurant and one I would recommend bringing out of town friends to. I always order the butter chicken as it is delicious. Whenever I have have gone for dinner here all have enjoyed it. The portions are big but all sides are an additional charge. There is always some left overs to take... More

We arrived late in the evening and enjoyed the tasting platter and drinks. Everything was great! Our only regret was that we weren't hungry enough for dinner. We hoped to visit the second restaurant in Alice Springs but didn't make. This place is wonderful!

We were all really impressed with the food, the colours, the textures. We were from SA, NZ and the U.K. Very happy with our choice of restaurant.

This is not an intimate diner; it is a large restaurant, almost on an industrial scale, but a restaurant nevertheless - unlike many of the nearby pub-like joints. On a Tuesday night, it was busy with a good vibe. It has an extensive menu, with plenty of seafood options, and a good wine list.

Thank Michael T

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.
