Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had been to this restaurant many times when we visited Alice Springs it was our favourite restaurant. But not any more. We were a party of 6 and no one was happy with their meals. We had the oysters which were ok, but the...curry goat, and chicken and the lamb cutlets were terrible. The lamb cutlets were mostly fat! Even when I complained the waitress was not concerned nor sorry for our disappointment! The fried rice was the only thing we did like. It was also very very noisy. The bill was $650 which included 1 bottle of $40 wine, 1 bottle of sparkling water and 4 beers. Seriously over priced for a meal we were not happy with nor did the waitress care we weren't happy. We left most of the cutlets on our plates. We won't be back nor will we recommend the restaurant.More

Great Atmosphere. Excellent Service. Delicious Food. Reasonable Pricing. We enjoyed a lovely evening. It’s very fast paced - so let them know if you wish to linger.

Food selection options rubbish if you are vegetarian, have a nut and gluten allergy. They hand you a leaflet to show what you can eat if you have allergies and dietary requirements but are not willing to provide options.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at this restaurant! An easy walk from the Crown Plaza. We each ordered a different dish and shared- Pad Thai with prawns, beef, and a vegetarian dish with mild curry. Everything was so good! The service was prompt and friendly!...Each dish was well prepared and served hot. A great meal! Be sure to make reservations!More

This is an old favorite and never lets us down. Food is delicious and portions generous. They have detailed tables of allergens for allergies and food intolerance. Double check as they have made errors.

Had a meal with friends tonight. Food was great. Bill arrived and we asked to split it 4 ways, including a good tip. The staff refused to take a split payment and called the manager. He wanted to argue for 10 minutes. Eventually he accepted...a split payment, which took 30 seconds to process. Needless to say, we removed the tip. I work in hospitality, and taking split payments is easy, and helpful for group bookings. When the manager wants to argue for 10 minutes about something which took him 30 seconds to do, and lost the tip payment. He is in the wrong job!More

This was our favourite dinner after 10 days in the NT. The food was delicious and a nice break from a lot of the fried pub food we were having in the country. It came recommended from a local.

This restaurant is located in the Double Tree resort. It was just a few minutes walk from where we were staying at Desert Palms Resort. We didn't have a dinner booking and felt like this was an issue, but they found us a table. The...food was Thai/Asian/Indian cuisine and was delicious. The Tom Yum soup, Hanuman Prawns and Butter Chicken were all mouth wateringly good. The service was fast and friendly, and the Manager was very hands-on friendly and efficient. A very lovely atmosphere.More

We had dined at Hanuman Darwin at the start of our holiday and meh meal was delicious. So it was with a sense of excitement that we booked into Hanuman Alice a week later. We ordered the Meen Moolie once again and it was such...a disappointment. So terrible we both couldn’t eat it. Tasteless Barra with what appeared to be luke warm sauce out of a jar. I emailed the restaurant to tell them of our experience and they responded seeking more information which I supplied. No response. Seems management doesn’t care.More

This is a loud restaurant in the main area, not so loud in the lobby. None of that matters, though; when the food is this good. The Hanuman sauce they make to go with prawns is a spectacular balance of sweetness and cream. The wine...list is also excellent.More
