Seated as soon as we arrived despite a later reservation. Asked for Savannah view and were accommodated without issue. Great atmosphere. Saw plenty of animals and had great food. Our server Bill, was helpful and attentive. He recommended the naan bread appetizer which was a great choice. Durden chicken and shrimp (SPICY) and tandoori chicken were ordered and were very...

I'm not the most adventurous of eaters, so if I can enjoy the food here than you shouldn't be afraid to take the picky eaters! The bread service is outstanding and don't be afraid to ask the wait staff for their recommendations on the dips to try with it. My husband and father-in-law enjoy going here for the beer that...

Previously, we have eaten at the Yak and Jeti restaurant in the Asia section of the Animal Kingdom... however, this time we decided to make a reservation at the Sanaa restaurant at the Animal Kingdom lodge area in order to get away from park for some time. That was an excellent Choice. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very good,... More

Sanaa is special. It's one of Disney's African themed restaurants and unique because the restaurant overlooks the "savannah" where many of the wild animals are free to roam around. While dining, we were "entertained"by the giraffes, wildebeests, African cranes, zebras etc. frolicking in their open space. The decor of the restaurant is charming, the staff are very attentive and knowledgeable... More

Interesting and different food. Ask for Savannah view when you make your reservation so you can see the animals, because only a few tables are near the windows. We enjoyed our dinner.

We were on the dining plan, so the cost of the meal did not matter as much to us. The server allowed us to get smoothies as our drink. My husband ordered the steak and I ordered the shrimp. Both were very delicious. The restaurant was quiet and relaxing, a rare occurrence in Disney World where most of the dining... More

We received great service - we ate at lunch time. The alcoholic drinks were spot on with a good balance. The food well prepared, adventurous, and delicious. Naan bread with 3 choices for dipping sauces I highly recommend.

Started shaky with an unfriendly hostess but everyone after her more than made up for it. The waiter's knowledge of the menu made our dinner selections perfect. The view of the animals was enjoyable. Bread service is a must. All the food was very good and flavorable. Only negative was the entree portions were a bit small. This was my... More

Good dining experience for a family. Must try the bread & dips. Try to get a table by window for view of animals.

We loved every minute of our experience here. It was a last minute addition to our trip as we had to cancel another reservation. Both my sister and I had the Curry, where you could choose two different curries and have it accompanied with rice or a pilaf. This was followed by a delicious dessert. I had the dessert trio,...
