If you're going do Buffet, this is it

Sanaa's Friday night buffet is a great treat for Sioux Falls. Though typically the word "buffet" brings to mind gut-fill and troughs of mediocre "chain" food, Sanaa's doesn't skimp on quality. Last Friday, the house was full and we had yet-another great meal with the confidence of Sanaa's... read more

Sanaa's Friday night buffet is a great treat for Sioux Falls. Though typically the word "buffet" brings to mind gut-fill and troughs of mediocre "chain" food, Sanaa's doesn't skimp on quality. Last Friday, the house was full and we had yet-another great meal with the confidence of Sanaa's wholesome recipes and attention to flavor.

We came here for the Saturday buffet, and there were so many delicious options. Sanaa was very friendly as were all of the servers. Can't wait to come back again!

Sanaa s offers fresh and delicious Mediterranean meals. This is a good spot for lunch and for their buffet. The restaurant is located in a quaint area downtown. It's not a fancy space...here it's all about the freshness of the food.

I've heard how great the food is here and ventured for lunch. Wasn't disappointed in the least except that what I'd wanted to try was sold out. Will be back to try it next time though. Went with meal #1 and really liked the sauce and tenderness of the chicken. My friend had their gluten menu option of "meatballs" and... More

Sanaa's is a delightful taste treat specializing in Middle Eastern cuisine. These folks do it right. The quality is consistently good, the place is clean and well appointed, and the workers are knowledgeable and helpful. You are very likely to see Sanaa herself working at the counter or kitchen - say hello, she's a trained nutritionist and great cook. Whether... More

This place has a reputation that precedes it and as on out of town weekday business visitor to Sioux Falls several times a year I have tried to get to this restaurant and today was the first time I was able to since they're only open for lunch except Friday and Saturday. The food and friendly service does not disappoint.... More

My husband and were in Sioux Falls on a Friday night and decided to try Sanaa's dinner buffet. We were so very pleased with the entire meal and wide selection of options. For only $15.95, Sanaa's offers exquisite Mediterranean flavors that leave anyone satisfied. If we weren't just passing through, then we would definitely frequent at Sanaa's.
