My family and I dined here for the second time on a recent trip to Walt Disney World. It is my favorite place on the entire property to eat, and now I cannot imagine a trip to Disney without eating here. The bread service is a must try. Each piece of naan and each chutney is delicious in its own... More

Our group of six totally enjoyed our lunch at Sanna, with a view of the savanna and the splendid animals at Animal Kingdom. The selection of breads with multiple dipping sauces was delicious. We enjoyed some African beer, too. We each ordered something different and everyone was delighted with their selection. Can't wait to go back.

Last time, I just had the naan bread service as my meal. This time, I went with three other people and we had the bread service and more. I tried the salad sampler, which was delicious; it was a bit cool outside and so o think I would have loved this more on a hot summer day. My mom had... More

11 members of my family spent the Christmas/New Years holiday week at Disney World in 2016. The adults went to Sanaa one night and, thinking about all of the wonderful meals we had over the week, it likely was our favorite. The service was phenomenal; our waitress was attentive, knowledgeable, kind and fun. The menu is diverse and everyone in... More

Our family of four adults visited this restaurant for a late lunch after spending a few hours in Animal Kingdom. The restaurant was one of our favorites of the whole trip! The food was so flavorful and well seasoned. Try the pulled pork sandwich or the Tandoori chicken. Also, the coconut cocktail with orange juice was delicious- a twist on... More

Family was so excited to try African foods. The bread appetizer with condiments was great to try and share. Went for lunch and it took 2 hours out of our day. Service was very slow.

This is a must do in WDW. The afro-indian menu is fantastic (don't skip the bread service, different naan with up to 9 dips) and the view of the Animal Kingdom Lodge savannah is breathtaking. Why not have lunch with giraffes and zebras? Highly recommended at lunch so the view of the animals is optimal.

I think this may be my favorite restaurant at Disney! I love everything about the restaurant! This was my second time there and the food was just as good. The decor is so much fun, and there is a view of the animals outside. The gluten free bread service was excellent! My wife is gluten free and I eat gluten... More

I just do not have enough praise words in my vocabulary to express how pleased we were with our dining experience at Sanaa. We were seated at our reservation time and received prompt attention at our table. The bread service appetizer is not to be missed. I have taken several cooking classes on ethnic cuisine with an emphasis on curries... More

Sanaa overlooks the park with animals. You can also step out and get a closer view of the safari animals. Hosts who are actually from Africa and super friendly are on standby to take photos and answer questions. The lodge itself is beautiful. However the restaurant falls well below expectations. Especially for the price and as a Disney spot. We... More
