...I think that means "Hello" in Botswana. One of my favorite experiences about dining at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is the cultural interactions not only with the food but also with the Cast. Normally a place like this calls for an interesting wine, but I couldn't pass up the Mango Lassi. Maybe next time it'll be my dessert. The 5... More

I'm not a big fan of Indian Cuisine or curry, but this was a beautiful restaurant to eat at and it had a wonderful view of the animals on the savanna. We had lunch there and there were several American choices on the menu, so you can find something to eat even if African or Indian foods don't appeal to... More

My husband and I and friends ate here twice during our week long vacation. Yes, the food and atmosphere is that good. You have great views of the savanna while you eat. The cost is reasonable--especially considering the quality of food.

The quality of food at Sanaa was outstanding, as good as any Indian I have ever had. Disney did everything right at this restaurant; however, expect to be surrounded by screaming children. Throughout our trip, we have noticed that more and more families are bringing very tired children to upscale Disney restaurants and not removing them when they start crying,... More

This restaurant has the most ridiculous views of African wildlife ever with floor to ceiling windows facing the Savanna at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Imagine the best naan (bread service) you can get, and then having a freakin giraffe walk by while you eat it. The decor inside also creates a great dining environment with colorful contrasts in a lower... More

well, the best I've ever had, at least. This place really steers away from the 'safe and usual.' I think WDW is making a move to get away from standard fare; this is maybe their most experimental. They cross Indian curry flavors with middle eastern/Ethiopian, and it works really well....I would heartily recommend it for anyone looking for something different.... More

We had the luncheon with an animal specialist . The food was very good and the animal specialist was interesting and gave us an up close interaction with some turtles. It was a lot of fun. And very filling.

I love dining inside Disney & I've been wanting to eat here for a while. Sanaa did not disappoint. We were a bit late for our reservation, but they sat us right away. Unfortunately we couldn't get a window table to see the animal while eating, however we were close enough & the windows are large enough to see them... More

I was very disappointed with the service provided at this place. We had called and booked a table the day before. When we reached there they seated us at a table for 4, when we had booked a table for 5. When we said it looks too crowded, the guy asks us if we can wait another 15 minutes(now 25... More
