4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

An excellent restaurant with good choice , quality and quantity of food. A blend of African and Indian flavours. Go early enough to appreciate the views of the animals on the Savannah if you are lucky enough to be seated at a window table.

Where can you enjoy a wonderful meal while watching animals on the Savannah, Sanaa of course! In the lobby before opening for dinner the staff play authentic drums. The decor makes you feels as though you are in an exotic land and then you are seated looking out over the savannah. Animals are grazing just beyond the window. The menu... More

Had lunch here while in Orlando for a few days. Was able to make reservations for the same day but dinner times were fully booked up. Easy to find and get to but you will need ID to enter the Animal Kingdom Lodge grounds...no biggie. Free parking was available in the parking garage away from the sun. We were greeted... More

Sanaa in the Kidani village of Animal Kingdom Lodge is a true hidden gem of dining in Disneyworld. All of the reviews state that you must try the bread service. And all those reviews were dead on!! Do not pass this opportunity up. And get all nine of the dips..so worth it. I had the potjie which was a choice... More

We are on the Disney dining plan so this is a great value one star restaurant but at two star quality. The decor and 'feel' of the restaurant is fantastic, themed, as is the rest of this resort', on African culture. The ambiance is relaxed and the food is excellent. Curry, Indian and Indian inspired with an African twist is... More

Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is a real gem. As with everything about this hotel it's almost worth visiting just to enjoy the décor. However, a table next to the floor to ceiling windows ensures a breathtaking view of the "Serengeti" and you can watch giraffes, ostrich and wildebeest amble by while you enjoy the food. The menu itself... More

We've been to Sanaa several times . While not a cuisine we typically eat , since Kidani village is our home resort in the Disney Vacation Resort we tried it and keep returning. The room is truly stunning with a view of the Savannah . Animals are visible while enjoying your meal. This trip we had 4 adults and 4... More

Table at 820 was a v short wait but we noted large numbers of people waiting for table presumably sone walk ups. This cannot have been the cause of being effectively hurried through three courses in an hour as when we left there were a number of free tables and no one still waiting but it is maybe the raison...

Happy to get a reservation for Sanaa and give us a reason to go from Jambo, where we stayed, to Kidani to look around. Beautiful setting looking out onto the Savanah with some great views of animals on the lush green grass. The server talked us into having the bread starter and dips.. great choice and highly recommended. Kids enjoyed... More
