Cont... Of being away and am a little disappointed, food is not as good and service has declined


Ate here every month for 5 years when I lived in Darwin. Have returned after 2 years if being aw


Very expensive but the food was lovely.


Excellent, as always, the different spices so skillfully blended together, each unique yet complimentary, wonderful food, great service and decor, one of, if not, Darwin's best


Jimmy Shu is an excellent restratuer and The Hanuman isbrilliant evidence of this.


If you are ever in Darwin make sure you go to this restaurant. Must have dishes to try are the Hanuman Oysters and the Butter Chicken which is done tandoori style and like no other butter chicken - it is delicious. Their garlic naan is also great for mopping up the sauces.


Fantastic food. Highly recommended.


The best - you've got to try it!


By the time we dined at Hanuman we were just about 'seafood-ed out' so chose beef & chicken curries and steamed rice as our mains. They were very good - but the outstanding dish (both presentation and flavour) were the highly recommended Hanuman 'baked' oysters (entree) incorporating lemongrass, coriander, chilli - served on a circular earthen-ware dish with individual self contained 'oyster size bowls' each covered with 'tagine shaped' lids. Taste - amazing! Presentation - unexpected!
