The quality of the food here is absolutely amazing! We would go back in a heart beat. The service was attentive and friendly. The lamb was so good, as well as the butter chicken.

The experience at Sanaa was on 8/22/15. The food was generally Indian-style food. We loved the 'Bread Service' and had all 9 sauces! There's 5 which are spicy (one spicier than the other!). We had the Butter Chicken and "Potjie Inspired' meal...we chose Spicy Durban Shrimp & Spiced Lamb with Basmati Rice. Oh! We had about 2-Mango Lassi's each! It... More

Excellent dinner. Had a wonderful Berbere lamb shank and incredible coconut sulfi with pineapple. Pleasant atmosphere. You're in a Disney resort but the ambience is nicer than you'd expect. Lots of families. Beautiful views. Good wine list. Recommended.
