It was a genuine surprise to me to be able to get a decent amount of tasty Thai and Indian dishes in Central Australia of all places! The restaurant was quite busy and even though I did not arrange for a booking, the extra tables for non-reservation customers were in the lobby of the Double Tree so the atmosphere was still pleasant. The service here is quite decent as even though English isn't the first language of many waiters, they would make the effort to repeat your order to make sure they got your orders right.

I tried the Lamb Rogan Josh which to me was the highlight of the evening as the lamb was tender and the gravy flavourful. The Vegetarian Spring Roll is really good too, chunky with ingredients and I would highly recommend trying the sweet chili dipping sauce. The duck meat of the Red Curry of Duck dish was so-so, but the red curry is really appetising and I would suggest spooning it over a plate of rice (Note: It cost 3 AUD per rice bowl). The Crispy Whole Fish wasn't that great as it was dry and not worth its charging price so I would not recommend people to try it.

This restaurant is a bit expensive but if you pick a few dishes or are looking for something different from the typical Western food fare, it's definitely worth a try!

This was our first night in Alice. We wanted a special restaurant for a birthday celebration. It was very nice food if you like Thai food. There were Indian options available too. The oysters and prawns were very good.

The place was jumping. We had to wait a few minutes for our table to be free but it definitely was worth the wait. Had the best meal. I can still taste it. Loved it.

Have enjoyed wonderful meals at Hanaman in Darwin NT as well as Adelaide SA (now closed) but our meal tonight was so awful it has moved me to write a review in order to save other travelers from making the same mistake I did.
Hanaman in Alice Springs must be trading on the name only because the care and finesse displayed in the "fusion" style food served in Darwin has instead been replaced with buttered chicken out of the jar and noodles straight from a bain marie... it was the worst $86 I have ever spent.
