Part of the Holiday Inn Esplanade complex in the CBD and a benchmark for multicultural dining in Darwin, Hanuman displays restaurateur Jimmy Shu’s love of Thai, Nonya and Tamil cooking. Jimmy can often be found at Rapid Creek markets first thing on Sunday morning buying fresh ingredients from the stallholders, and much of the seafood comes directly from Top End estuaries and the Timor and Arafura seas. Jimmy’s motto is chop, assemble and stir with love, and his signature dishes include Hanuman oysters or prawns, cooked in a mild coconut curry sauce.
