Great food and atmosphere

We ate dinner here. We ordered the Indian-style bread service and selected Garlic Ginger Naan, Spiced Naan, and Paneer Paratha with Mango Chutney and Red Pepper Hummus. The bread service was delicious. I ordered the butter chicken and lamb curry for the entree, and they were beautifully seasoned... read more

One of the best dinning experiences as its menu allows for the African Flavors to unite with Indian spices. For desert ensure that you get the mixture of the 3 best ones so you are able to taste some of the best Africa has to offer with the Disney Taste.

We go to Orlando every summer and I try to make a point to ensure that we visit restaurants that we have not been to. Sanaa was one of those choices. Having nan served at a Disney restaurant is a bit of a disconnect but my family loved the tray served to us. The food was top notch as was... More

We had a good meal at Sanaa with two couples. The food here is unique, so we had some good and some bad, but overall good. Here's a quick rundown: Bread service - this was fantastic. We ordered all the accompaniments, and all four of us enjoyed all but two of them. And my husband wanted to lick the bowls... More

This was our secon visit to Sanaa, previously we had been there for dinner, so we didn't appreciate the views of the savannah but this time we were there for lunch, and the experience was fantastic! You see so many animals roaming around the Savannah as you have you meal. We spotted giraffes, zebras, wilder beast and some type of... More

We visited Sanaa at The Animal Kingdom Lodge during our recent visit to Orlando for a business meeting. We both enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the food. The food was flavorful and unique. The naan appetizer was very good. We enjoyed seeing the animals before, during and after our meal.

This was high up on our to-do list for our Disney trip, yet we were slightly underwhelmed. Views of the animals was perhaps the biggest reason we chose to dine at Sanaa, yet we were placed on a table where we could not see any of the windows. The service was good and the staff were friendly yet as someone... More

Went to Sanaa as part of the lunch service a while back. It was by very far the worst meal we had in disney world. It was nice to see the animals outside the restaurant. Then came the food. We had the bread service which was okay but then came our mains. Unfortunately I was served the worst steak of... More

You are paying for a nice restaurant but really for the view of the Savannah at Animal Kingdom lodge. If you are not by the window you cannot even see it. I would pick BOMA over this. Food was ok but limited. Definitely check out menu before reserving. If you book dinner around 7ish you will finish just in time... More
