Ate with my fiance here twice. The first time was better than the second but still very good. It is mostly Indian and African style dishes. The breads are essential to get. I also liked the Potjie but I did not love the Tandoori chicken. For comparison, I would say I eat Indian food at least once a month. Sanaa... More

This was our first time here. We found the place clean and the service very pleasant and quick. We had the Indian style bread service, tomatoe soup, Sanaa burger and the butter chicken and rice. We all thought the food was great. We all enjoyed the bread service with the nine different condiments. We will definitely come back.

Sanaa could be one of the best restaurants at Disney!! The food is delicious, children's menu has plenty of options, and the attention to food allergies is impeccable! They brought out GF bread for us and our server was very knowledgable about the gluten and dairy allergies my wife has. Food allergy plates are a different color and labeled. Kudus... More

We came here to use the last of our dining plan credit as it was close to our accommodation in Jambo House; we wish we had found it earlier!! Our waiter Dan was tremendous and talked us through both the drinks and food menu without being invasive of our dining either. We had the lamb shank and trio of meats... More

Fantastic! I eat lamb a lot and they had the best lamb I have EVER had in my life. That alone would get them a five star from me. The filet was amazing as well. On top of that the bread appetizer was delicious but ever different from most appetizers you will get at other restaurants. They bring you about... More
