Delicious food with a kick!

I would like to start off by saying that I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has an adventurous palate. When my fiancee and arrived a few mins before our reservation, we were given our buzzer to wait for our table. We were seated within 5-10 mins from sitting in the waiting area... read more

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing lunch last week during our anniversary trip. We arrived on time for our 1:15 reservation and only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated. Our server was so nice, she was actually from Kiln, MS which isn't far from where we live. We started off with the bread appetizer which was... More

Husband had the steak, I had the butter chicken and seafood curry combo with batsami rice, son had naan pizza, all were superb! I tried flavors I have never tried before and was pleasantly surprised. So glad I did instead of going the "safe" route. Servers will explain flavors of all items to you, it is Indian food with African... More

Restaurant in Kidani Village of Disneys Animal Kingdom. We were on the dining plan and it was only one credit each! Amazing breads to start you must have. Dips gorgeous. I had the lamb shank and it was cooked to perfection. Beautifully presented. Still can't believe it is only one credit each on the disney dining plan. Kenyan coffee tasted... More

We dined here for lunch on May 21. We arrived about an hour early and was seated about 10 minutes after near the windows and the animals. The service was great! Our waiter was super nice and very attentive. The food was very good! The bread service was our fave, also the butter chicken and the lamb was so delicious.... More

While all the food was delicious and well executed from our Indian bread service to our Tandoori chicken/shrimp dishes the service was inanely slow. The manager did stop by and take the bread service appitizer off our bill - it took 45 minutes+ from when we originally ordered it before it arrived. Our Tandoori dishes were very good and because...

My wife and I took our daughter here for the last meal in Orlando before we headed home after a week long vacation. Their bread platter appetizer was amongst the best I've ever had, with 9 different types of dipping sauces. That being said, I caution the portion size as it left almost no room for our actual lunch! I'm... More

Sanaa has huge windows which overlook an area where giraffes, etc. wander. The animals can't come that close but they were fun to watch. The service was excellent. I do not like spicy food and our server gave hotness ratings to every meal on the menu. I had the strip steak which was very good. We shared the bread appetizer... More

Ate here for lunch before leaving on our vacation. Was some of the best food on our whole trip! As an Indian family we can be somewhat selective with this type of cuisine and have to say we were super impressed. Definitely eat here if you have the chance!

This is a hidden gem! Located in the Animal Kingdom Villas, it had to be one of the nest meals we've had. Our teenagers loved the food and experience. Our server was excellent and offered great recommendations and overview of the dishes.
