We had a great dinner at Sanaa. Our reservation was a little late in the evening, so it was too dark to see the animals while eating, even though we had a table right by the window. We arrived a little early to walk around outside and see the animals up close. It was pretty neat. One person in... read more

We were prepared for standard theme park food - but we were blown away by the quality and selection at this restaurant. And when the sun is up, it has a wonderful view out onto the animals on property. The service was very nice as well. But I cannot say enough about the quality of the food. It was fantastic.... More

We just got back from a trip to Disney and decided to try Sanaa. We were staying at Jambo house so took the free shuttle to Kidani for supper. Let me begin by saying the food was amazing!! Our party had several dishes from the menu and all were fantastic. The ambiance of the restaurant is wonderful and the decor... More

My family and I stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Villas at Kidani and we wanted to try Sanaa for a unique dining experience. We were seated immediately next to a window that had views of beautiful zebras and exotic birds roaming around so close you felt like you could reach out and touch them! We were truly impressed with... More

Came for lunch we did not have a reservation so waited 45 min to get a table. Had a look outside at the animals and a drink in the bar while waiting. This restaurant had some vegetarian options, I ordered Chickpea war and paneer tikka, it was good but not great. We also ordered the tandoori chicken it came on... More

I had been told to come early to see wildlife and there was only one zebra when we hung out at the outside viewing areas pre-meal. The animal area was suppose to look like the Africa Savannah I guess, but to me it looked like an abandoned lot in any urban area. We could not be accommodated to sit by... More

We booked Sanaa based on a recommendation and are so pleased we went. Sanaa is the restaurant at Animal Kingdom Lodge, it's not in the park. In the evening the animals from the park are brought here to eat and wander around. This is the best time to go. We highly recommend arriving a little early, before your booking. That... More

Fantastic experience! My husband and I picked Sanaa for our anniversary dinner because of the animal views and unique menu. Our waiter was marvelous! We had a great view right next to the window! The animals were great to watch. We even had an up close experience with a big bird coming up to the window. We reserved our dinner... More
