We love Sanaa and have eaten here every time we have visited Disney in the last 4 years (5 times). A few must haves, the Naan bread appetizer, pay the few extra bucks and get all the sauces instead of 3. I had the pork while my Fiancée had the vegetarian sampler. Both were great and filling. The main reason... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is very well themed and a lot of fun to be eating and watching giraffes right outside the window. However, my entree was not as good as I had hoped. I had the leg of lamb and it was extremely overcooked and tough to eat. I would recommend the bread service, but... More

The Tandoor shrimp was cold and not well done and the lamb curry was very salty. The Naan bread basket and the Lamb sliders appetizers were very very good

It's only an appetizer, but Sanaa offers a bread service with your choice of three different Indian style naan breads and up to eight different tasty sauces to dip them in. While the rest of the menu is good, the bread service makes this restaurant worth the visit.

I am almost at a loss for words to describe how wonderful our dining experience at Sanaa was. Sanaa is a table service dining experience, located in the DVC area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Kidani Village. The food at Sanna is a fusion of African and Indian cuisine and that fusion is a true delight for the taste buds.... More

+ Great food, the best Indian food I had in US + Unique gourmet dishes, not the usual run of the mill Indian dishes + True 5 star restaurant + Portions are small and pricey but overall good value for the quality

We enjoyed lunch here as a special treat for my birthday. We figured the kids would love seeing the animals (huge windows facing the savannah!) and the food choices seemed right up our alley! We ordered mac and cheese for one kid (slightly above average!) and decided to do something ala carte for the other kid (she's picky and there... More

African menu that anyone foodie or non-foodie would enjoy. Great service, authentic African foods, good family atmosphere, and wildlife walking right up to the windows. Make sure you try the complete Indian Style bread service. Wide range of flavors!!!

It is worth the bus ride over to Kidani Village to eat at Sanaa. The food is creative (mostly Indian influenced with some North African) and delicious, and much more reasonably priced than other resort restaurants. Our reservations were after dark, so we weren't able to see animals while dining, but we had come early for game viewing and a... More
