Amazing food, with great gluten-free options

Great downtown area location! Like eating in Sanaa's kitchen as she was there working. All the food was fresh and tasted flavorful. We went back three times and it was always bustling, casual, and clean. Great for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free, as well as meat eaters. Very friendly and helpful... read more

We had been wanting to try the buffet for quite some time. We were allowed to take a peek before deciding if we wanted to order. We decided to stay and were shocked when we were told the price, at 18.95 per person, it seemed steep for the offerings. The food is okay, not fabulous as the reviews lead you... More

Had lunch here while driving through Sioux Falls. A great option for a quick and tasty meal. Nothing is going to blow you away; this is just really good food in a city that didn’t seem to be bursting with tons of alternatives

Food tastes excellent. Home made dough, pita, pasteries. Robust seasoning and full flavor. I appreciate sacrificing pomp and circumstance for affordable prices. Food quality, however, is top notch.

Large table area.We arrived an hour before lunch closing at 3PM. Friendly helpful staff gave good suggestions for lunch. My wife and I both had chicken dishes. One spicy and the other more curry tasting. Both delicious. Came with yellow rice and a choice of a salad. Four different ones to choose from. First time eating this cuisine. It was... More

Fantastic good. Something for everyone. Carnivores, vegetarians, and vegans. Great atmosphere in a historic building. Staff is always fantastic. Owner is on site and very knowledgeable. Also outstanding catering options. Very reasonable prices.

We were passing through on a road trip west and found Sanaa's via a Gluten Free App. What a find! The owner Sanaa ( trained in France and Italy ) and brings her Middle Eastern / Mediterranean heritage to the fore. Beautifully fresh and healthy food, prepared with dedication and care by staff under her leadership who know all about... More

If you're looking to expand your dining horizons, try something new, or just enjoy Mediterranean Cuisine, Sanaa's needs to be on your short list of restaurants to try in Sioux Falls. The food is fantastic, Sanaa is an awesome chef and it's all healthy and fresh. Great Stuff!

Yum! This were some delicious food! We ordered a bit of everything to try and all of it were good! I've heard so many good things about Sanaa's, but I'm not sure why it took us so long to visit. We'll be back, that's for sure! The place is small and a bit warm, but it's worth it.

I was excited to finally get here. Not knowing what to get, the help was quck to advise. What I wanted was sold out but the dish I enjoyed had great flavor. Lots of locals eat here proving the food is something to try. Very casual but would like to try their buffet on the weekend
