Between the 5 of us, we had everything on the choice of 2 menu. All of it was good. The butter chicken (although my least favorite) was the favorite by all of my ladies (my girlfriend and our 3 daughters). The beef short ribs was my favorite. The naan was also excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant.

We make a point of coming to Sanaa every visit to Disney World. This past visit we went for my birthday and what a wonderful treat it was. I have never been disappointed by the food here. It is mostly Indian cuisine with African spices and other flavors mixed it. I think it is good to get the samplers, like... More

If you don't appreciate the blandness and uniformity of the general Disney fare available in the parks, you need to hop a bus to the Animal Kingdom resort (Kidani) and try this place. Their menu is varied, creative and delicious. My young daughters and I loved the naan plate, beef short ribs and tandoori lamb. We were even able to... More

My husband and I went there for dinner after going to the Magic Kingdom. We were able to sit near one of he windows. I was very cool to be able to watch all the animals walking around. I went near the end of lunch, so it wasn't that busy. I would recommend getting a reservation, so you can set... More

Hello, this was our second time dining here and it was consistently good as the first. This is a little bit unique dining experience, patient servers answered all of our tedious menu questions to our satisfaction. Five of us ordered several dishes and all were top notch. Menu tends to consist of items from Africa with an Indian twist. Make... More

We were a little disappointed. Basically it was Indian food, not clear why it was considered African with Indian flavor. The bread plate (naan, raita, chutney) was pretty tasty but once again kind of standard Indian restaurant fare, a little skimpy on the dips. It is very convenient to eat there if you are staying at Kidani, being the only... More

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
