We read reviews suggesting Sanaa. We're so glad we listened to the positive reviews! The journey to get to this out of the way restaurant was well worth it. Leave yourself at least an hour to get there during lunch time if taking the Disney shuttles. Our server, Marc, was excellent and considerate as he guided our family through our... More

The food honestly was fairly good; however our service was absolutely dreadful once the waiter knew we had the deluxe dining plan. It is a shame too; as I was drinking alcohol (not covered by the plan) and would have had more than one drink if he ever checked back up on us. I think the combination of us having... More

I ordered the lamb shank dinner, it was unbelievably good and super fall a part tender. My wife got the three meat meal, which included pork, lamb and a sausage, she... More

Sanaa is a nice little escape from the hustle of Disney life. The restaurant is very peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed eating lunch while watching exotic animals graze. I highly recommend the bread service with all the dipping sauces and the Coffee service for dessert or just a midday pick me up!

Sanaa is a great restaurant in Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. They offer a quick service breakfast with menu items delivered to the table or grab and go items (pastries, bagels, cereal). Lunch and dinner are table service. The bread service during these times are a good appetizer or a meal in itself. The service includes a variety of... More

The ambiance at Sanaa is so nice, good lighting and African like decor. Very polite and helpful servers. It was so relaxing to be able to watch the animals out the window. We got the naan appetizer with the 9 dipping sauces and loved it. We got the chicken flatbread sandwich and liked it but would probably not get it... More

Had a lovely meal here. Loads of animals on view (zebras, wildebeest, bunnies, giraffes, varieties of birds). The bread service is as delicious as advertised.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our dinner at Sanaa following a day at Animal Kingdom. We made a reservation using the Disney dining reservation system well in advance of our vacation and took the convenient Disney transportation to Kidani Village. We were welcomed (in English and Swahili) at the check in desk by several lovely young women in traditional... More

We Arrived after 9:30 so the restaurant was no longer serving customers. Unfortunately, the lounge has very few items to choose from and should consider expanding their menu for guests who arrive a little later in the evening because the food options a limited at that time without leaving the resort. We ordered the Bread Service (traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan,... More
