The food this time was not as good as in previous years, it was just okay. The view makes up for everything, watching the animals roam just feet away from the window. It is the first time I have ever had a meal there that I would rate as just "okay" usually we rave out it.........3 of us were of... More

We tried this food for the first time. The flat breads with the dipping sauces were very good. We chose 3 different flavors of bread and got all of the dipping sauces. We also tried 3 of their salads, they flavors and textures were different, but they were good. My entrée of pork tenderloin was very flavorful and tender. We... More

Sanaa is one of the Restaurants you’ll find in the Kidani Villas area. The surprising part of this dining experience is that you sit literally feet away from the animals, add a dining room full of dark woods, African decor and warm lighting and you’ve got a recipe for Disney success , once again am amazed by Disney. Unique experience... More

Really good atmosphere and the resort and restaurant are well themed. However the food didn't really live upto expectations. The entree was good, mixed naan breads with accomplishments, and I had high hopes for mains. They weren't really hot and didn't have much flavour. Service was good, but overall I wouldn't go back.

The food here was phenomenal. I tend to stay safe and order something plain but I'm glad I tried this restaurant. Everything was so flavorful. My younger daughters didn't like it - it was a far cry from their normal chicken nuggets and fries.

We LOVE the Lounge at Sanaa... in fact, we go there usually the first night of a trip to WDW. It is small which is part of its charm and we always order the Naan Sampler- if we feel frisky, we get it with ALL the dips-- so good! The fact they are playing sports on the TV does not... More

This place is a must-do for anyone staying at WDW. We have eaten at almost every restaurant on property, and even done the dinner package for the WDW Candlelight Processional, and this rates at almost the TOP of ALL of them. The menu offers a variety of selections, and the food preparation and presentation are superb. Our server was ever... More

Our entire party (including three granddaughters ages 5-7) really enjoyed their dinner at this nice restaurant. Although a bit pricey, we were on a Disney meal plan so it didn't make much difference (most of the food items were eligible for the plan). The service was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the Indian-style bread appetizer.

Don't be afraid to try the Indian-style Bread Service. Delicious - we had Traditional Naan, Onion Kucha, or Paneer Paratha with all the accomps - Red Chile Sambal, Cucumber Raita, Coriander Chutney, Mango Chutney, Coconut Chutney, Garlic Pickle, Spicy Jalapeño-Lime Pickle, Roasted Red Bell Pepper Hummus, or Tamarind Chutney. They range from sweet to spicy and all were fabulous. My... More

we ate lunch here and it was one of our favourite meals all holiday. The Indian bread service is a huge portion but with 9 great dips full of flavour. The curries worked well and were spiced really well. We will be back!
