If you want Indian food…

Hanuman has the reputation of being the best Indian restaurants in Darwin. Since opening in 1992, the restaurant has won many local and state food awards offered in the Northern Territory, after one visit here it’s not hard to see why! You’ll be tempted to order everything on the menu here, we recommend feasting on trumpet mushrooms, the Hanuman tasting plate, butter chicken and as much naan bread and pilau rice you can consume.

If you want Chinese food…

A strong contender for the best Chinese restaurant in Darwin is Chow! Giving the Northern Territory a taste of South East Asia with every dish on the menu, Chow’s is a firm favourite with locals. The focus is on flavour here, all ingredients are fresh and locally sourced whilst the colourful presentation will have you reaching for your phone for a quick picture. Tuck into their roast duck laksa or order a variety of their small plates.

If you want Italian food…

Craving pizza or pasta? Well, Alfonsino’s is known as the best Italian restaurants in Darwin.

Bringing a little taste of Italy to the people in Darwin, Alfonsino’s prides itself on cooking authentic Italian meals and serving them in a traditional way. You can’t go wrong when you order from this menu but we can’t get enough of the capricciosa or malafemmena pizza!

If you want Thai food…

Thailicious is probably the best Thai restaurant in Darwin, we recommend going there for the name alone! From satay chicken to their curries and stir-fried dishes, the food doesn’t disappoint either. Order your favourite plates from the menu or ask one of the waiters to bring you what they think you’d enjoy – it’s a trust exercise with a really yummy outcome. Did we mention Thailicious offers outdoor rooftop dining too?

If you want to eat somewhere with a view…

Head to one of the best waterfront restaurants in Darwin, The Jetty. A great place to have dinner by the wharf and take in a breath-taking view of the city’s skyline, you can easily spend an entire evening eating and relaxing here. When it comes to ordering go for the chilli mud crab, oysters or opt for the all-you-can-eat buffet which provides a nice selection of options for the main menu.
