Fresh food prepared daily. no frozen meat or vegetables.. variety of salads, Tabbouleh and dips (to die for). Mediterranean diet is the currently recommended one for a healthy heart. The middle eastern food is one example for this diet. to top it all, Sanaa (the chef) is terrific with her smile always on her face. By the way this is... More

Likely the overall best not formal joint in town. Sanna's (the owner) really knows how to cater to her customers with her great personality and her finger licking food. An experience you will never regret.

The food is amazing - full of flavour and varied. We went to the Friday buffet and had essentially two full meals. It was just so delicious we needed to try everything/ And what a bargain - If I lived in Sioux Falls I would go there every Friday night.

This place while is for the Vegetarian lovers, it does have other items that include meat. Not being a Vegan, I can say, however, I could become one if all non-meat items taste like this. Unfortunately, they are only open for dinner on Friday evening, while they are open for lunch most days. This place is worth you time to... More

My husband and I are driving across the country, which has meant a series of grilled cheese dinners for me. I am vegetarian, and the middle of the country doesn't offer the many options California restaurants do. So, imagine my excitement, when we stopped in Sioux Falls on a Friday night, the only night Sanaa is open for dinner! We... More

Girlfriend and I tried to come here on a Saturday evening only to find out its only open for lunch. Came back a couple weeks later. There was a limited selection (not everything on the menu was available), and what was available had been pre-made and sitting around for (I assume) awhile. My fatayer and my girlfriend's chicken dish was... More

The people were very nice and the food was great. It costs more than taco bell of course but its a local person serving great food. Mine was under ten bucks it was worth it in my book. Give it a try!

Really nice people. Really, Really nice people, but the only "gourmet" here is self-proclaimed in their name. I too travel the country and I wasn't impressed with the overall food quality, or the portions. They can do better and if the star struck locals had a chance to experience better, elsewhere, Sanaa s wouldn't be as highly rated as it... More

I have traveled a lot around the world, and this is the REAL DEAL. I think the food is Lebanese. The one time I actually went into the restaurant, it was really hot and steamy in there and I could not stand the heat, so we left. However, I spoke to the owner and she was very nice. In additional,... More
