Out side your resturant are african animals. The resturant is African themed and is gorgeous. The food was incredable! I wish I could have fit more lol I would recommend over and over again. Worth the price.

If your family is going to Disney and you are on they Dining plan you must eat here! The whole experience was top notch and one of the highlights from our family vacation. I would recommend an early evening reservation (like 5:00pm) and ask to sit by the window. We arrived before they opened and checked in and went outside... More

We went to Sanaa because we are spending 2 weeks at Disney and wanted to try different restaurants this time around. We are a party of nine and are almost done with our trip. I can say that hands down, this was the best restaurant we went to. The food was unique, varied, and really exquisite. The Indian style bread... More

Great food, exquisite desserts, beautiful atmosphere, awesome view of the animals in the savanna. We were delighted to find out we could get a mango lassi using the Disney dining plan (just no refills). Be sure to take the time to view the animals from the outside area or balcony on the lobby floor.

After a busy day at the Animal Kingdom and surviving a downpour, we found our way to Sanaa. My daughter in law counts WW points and eats no meat. My grandson is a fussy eater, but was willing to try something different. We are from the Hudson Valley and live near NYC, so we are extremely critical when it comes... More

Joined some friends for dinner here prior to a conference/meeting. As with anything Disney, the service and guest care was excellent! The food was amazing, crab cakes with complex flavors, the triple salad was delightful ( Watermelon, Cucumber and Fennel; Kachumbari; Mango) and dessert, Tanzanian Chocolate Mousse, was exquisite!

This isn't just a restaurant this is a dining experience. Getting to eat flavorful Indian/African fusion food in such an incredible setting while watch the animals on the savannah was an incredible experience. From our table we could see cranes, giraffes, zebras, and long horned cattle. The bread service is delicious the hummus, and mango relish were my favorite. Its... More

This was by far the best meal I had during our 6 Day Disney Vacation. Kidani Village is a gorgeous setting for this restaurant. My daughter and I really enjoyed exploring the deck and viewing animals while waiting for our table. We shared the Naan as our appetizer. We tried the traditional naan, the onion kucha, and the spiced naan.... More

We've dined at several restaurants at WDW and Sanaa has to be one of the most unique. We were seated at a table by the window where we had a lovely view of the savanna with giraffe, zebra, etc. In our reservation, we had noted we were celebrating our anniversary and the waitress was sweet and brought us two glasses...
