View of the giraffes and zebras were brilliant! The window out to them was directly beside our table. Food was delicious. Some of our party (12 of us in total) said it was their favourite meal of the whole trip (we had the Disney dining plan - so had eaten at a different Disney restaurant each day). The cast member...

I'm over sixteen so I promise not to use the word yummy in my review. Got there about 15 minutes early and we were given a pager. As our reservation time came and went I walked up to the hostess a number of times before we eventually got seated. It was at least a half hour to an hour late.... More

We had Thanksgiving dinner here this trip, and it was wonderful! I had their fish special, and it was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. I do think their bread service is way overpriced, but we ordered it anyway (I don't think I will get it in the future though--just not worth it). My 16-year old daughter... More

We were on the dining plan (includes main meal and dessert), and booked this restaurant a while before we went. The decor is really nice, and fits with the African theme. Our waitress was lovely, very attentive and knowledgeable. I would recommend starting off with the bread service with nine dips - very yummy and plenty to share between three... More

I recently had 2:30 reservations for lunch at Sanaa. I arrived early and was given a pager. The woman at the front desk suggested I wait on the extended pathway where I could watch the animals, which made my wait pass very quickly. I was seated immediately when the pager buzzed. That's where things started to go wrong. I ordered... More

Unique restaurant with very good food. Our waitress, Amy, was extremely friendly and efficient. Because it was Thanksgiving, they did offer a turkey dinner. All our orders were good.

I'm not one to typically do multiple TA reviews for a restaurant unless something has significantly changed. Unfortunately, that is the case with Sanaa. Sanaa has historically been our favorite restaurant at WDW and we go there about every other trip. Our visit the Sunday before Thanksgiving was probably our 5th or 6th time there. I have to say that... More

Dining at Sanaa was a treat. We had made reservations and noted that we needed dairy-free vegetarian dining options for a member of our party. Once seated, that individual was given a dairy-free menu without having asked for it. She had several choices for appetizers and entress. That is rare at most resorts. The food was excellent, as was the... More
