Sanaa is by far the best restaurant we have eaten at in WDW. We ate in the lounge and had an excellent server. The bread service was amazing (and very filling). Every single entree was superb. If it was local to us, I imagine we would eat there 1-2 times each month. But it's not, so we will make an... More

This was our first dinner at WDW. We were tired and hungry when we arrived and we're rapidly transformed by this heavenly restaurant. Nestled in the gorgeous Kindani Village at WDW's Animal Kingdom resort, Sanaa features exotic foods from Africa and Asia. We shared the bread service, a variety of naan with fantastic dipping sauces while watching gnu, giraffe, zebra... More

We ordered the full selection of breads and condiments for an appetizer and we were very happy with our choice. Our main courses varied a bit more. The duck was not roasted long enough to render all the fat, but was very tasty. The braaivleis mixed grill tasted nice, but was not spectacular, like the breads. Our server was absolutely... More

You just have to try the Bread Service. 5 naan breads and 9 dipping sauces. Best value at Walt Disney World.

We came here tonight with 6 people, 2 of whom are rarely adventurous. All were very happy. Our waiter Pedro was super nice and completely understood this was out of our comfort zone. Started with naan bread service which was great. Salad sampler great but small. All entrees good, especially Lamb shanks.

Dining at Sanaa is a treat of Indian-African blends rarely concocted elsewhere (as many reviewers have noted), but to be attended by Executive Chef Fallon is an unforgettable experience. As we found out on our visit of Feb 17. We wanted to order the lamb shank but were hesitant because the only thing that made it “Indian” was the tandoori... More

This was our second visit to Sanaa, one of the signature restaurants at Animal Kingdom resort at Disneyworld. Like the first visit, the food was outstanding. Unlike the first time, we let the staff pick what we ate. Wow! You have to try the flatbread starter mentioned in other reviews. This was followed by the Potjie Inspired entree...you select one...

Our first night at Kudani Village, we ate at Sanaa. They were a bit behind in the reservations, but we had a fun wait, with our 2 1/2 year old grandson visiting with other guests in the waiting area. The restaurant is large and the decor is very cool. Our server was funny...from Jersey and had been in Orlando for... More
