This was one of the best meals we had during our stay. We spent the morning in Animal Kingdom and then headed over to Sanaa for 1:30pm lunch reservations. The food was great, and the service was the best we encountered during our stay. I am vegetarian and my family, especially my 9-year old daughter, is mostly vegetarian. We started... More

Ate here for lunch and it was by far the best disney meal we had. Everything was very flavorful without any of if being overpowering. We sat close to the window so we could see the animals but not right next to it. Even if you're not into seeing the animals that much (I have passes for Busch gardens so... More

If, like me, you love the idea of a restaurant with a view, wow, don't miss this one!!! It is absolutely amazing to eat yummy food (mostly Indian) and be able to look a exotic animals (large birds, giraffes, zebras, etc.) walk or run by while you eat! The curry chicken and fish are delicious, the 3 naan choices with... More

Having had great African food and great Indian food, we were excited about dinner at this place. We were underwhelmed by everything including the service, the decor, the animal viewing, and the food. The only thing that was really good was the naan appetizer with the different sauces. The entrees were bland. If you've had the real deal, I'd skip... More

Unless you arrive right at opening, there is no guarentee of a table by the window. It's worth waiting for one! The view of the African wildlife outside is what makes the wait worthwhile. Once seated, be prepared for a great meal. The menu is sort of an African/Indian mix...quite common in Africa. The food is first rate, and the... More

It was pricey($70for2), the service was great. We all loved the bread sampler, order extra bread!! The meals we all cooked good, it was too spicy for me, good to try something different, couldn't eat it everyday.

This is likely the best dining value on Disney property. You do not need theme park admittance to eat here, the food is terrific, and the view of the Savanna is at times spectacular. The service is as it should be, and the price is spot on. Just one note – when the menu says spicy, it is (they can... More

This is my second time visitng and it is still my favorite. The view is amazing getting to watch all the animals while you eat. Value is very good considering the atmosphere and quality of the food. Get the bread service with all the spreads. It is amazing. The Tusker beer is very good and hard to find at stores.... More

We ate here on a recent trip and really enjoyed the whole experience. My husband doesn't deviate much from his basic foods, and even he was really happy with the choices. The restaurant itself is fun - loads of decorations and styling to look at (and be somewhat amazed by). Our server was fantastic. She explained every dish we asked... More

I loved this restaurant. We had a table right by the window so we got to watch the birds, zebras and other animals while we ate. The food was great although not a huge selection to choose from and our waiter seemed to dissappear for a bit but overall it was a great experience :)
