We dinned at Hanumans for my fathers 65th birthday. As we had a group of 12 people they suggested a banquet. We choose the Sita Banquet, it was $50 per head but it did not disappoint! The entire meal was fantastic, everything from the entree...More

We chose to dine while staying at the Hilton for our wedding anniversary. I was immediately impressed that we could make a 9pm reservation, as many places in Cairns seem to shut so early! The restaurant was busy for a Monday night- A good sign!...More

Enjoyed all the dishes here. Good quantity, excellent preparation and reasonable prices. We tried mostly the Indian dishes as well as some seafood. Loved their naan, the vegetable and cheese koftas and the dal.

A typical Cairns upper end restaurant, over priced and trading off its location. The food was just OK, the service was not to standard I'd expect from a restaurant in a Hilton Hotel. The bar staff had no clue what rum they had in stock,...More

Went to Hanuman awhile ago with my husband and friends. I was restricted a bit in my choices as I was pregnant (could not eat oysters etc) but aside from that the food was excellent. It certainly lives up to its reputation. I loved that...More

Very interesting menu, short of a fusion place with Indian, Nonya and Thai mixed. Good ambience. Located inside Cairns Hilton Hotel. I will give overall 5 star if service was as good.

Situated inside the Hilton Cairns Hotel and overlooking the Trinity Inlet, Hanuman Cairns is the latest addition to the Hanuman stable.Gently undulating panels cast curves of light and shade across the restaurant's entrance, creating an exotic and luxuriant mood. The rich, dark tones in the furnishings combine with intriguing artworks and ceramics that Jimmy has collected throughout south-east Asia.A visit to Hanuman Cairns will tantalise all the senses before wowing the taste buds as only Hanuman can.
