“Great location, delicious food and relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

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 is loud and rushed. We couldn't really see any animals from where we were sitting but we did wander outside afterward and saw a number of zebras. The desserts were delicious as well and our server was friendly and attentive.

“Disney's hole in the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

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.

“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

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 second dinner here and I can't wait for my next one.

“Unique setting for a Disney resort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

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

“Delicious!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

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, which had three samplers all of which were delicious. My sister had the banana kulfi sundae, which is also just as delicious.
Overall, a great experience and I know we will be back in the future
