Sanaa is an African inspired restaurant with Indian flavors located in the Kidani Village at Disney’s Animal Kingdom lodge. After just one visit, this is absolutely one of my favorite table service restaurants at Walt Disney World. My fiancé and I made a lunch reservation during a first visit to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We caught the bus from Disney’s Animal... More

We went here for dinner on a recent trip to Disney World. We were staying at a different resort but dined here at the recommendation of our friends who had visited previously. The food was delicious - even our picky children ate the Naan Pizza and Mac and cheese. After dinner as the sun started setting the animals started coming... More

It was our first time eating at Sanaa and we will definitely go back when we return to Disney. The food was of a very good quality and the theming of the restaurant is pretty impressive. Our server recommended the bread service by our server and I have to say, we weren't disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed it but it was... More

Chose to eat at Sanaa due to the ambience and location. We wanted our anniversary night to be special. Sanaa was the perfect place to feel like we were not only eating somewhere exotic, but somewhere special. Placed dinner reservations, and were seated in 10 minutes. We expected to be able to see animals walking out the window while eating,... More

Brought whole family here including children ages 1 and 4. The naan bread starter was amazing. The drinks were great and has African flare. Everyone loved their meals, including the kids. Service was great too and could see the animals roaming outside during the meal. Costs were similar to other table service restaurants at Disney. This is a true gem... More

Absolutely amazing food!! I wish there were 6 stars because honestly I don't think 5 is enough. For starters, the restaurant's decor was outstanding, I really felt like I was in Africa. We started by ordering the bread and sauce "flight" and it was exquisite. The flavors all blended perfectly together so you could not have a bad bite. I... More

This has become our favorite place to eat on Disney property. The opportunity to eat while animals are grazing just outside the windows is amazing. The Disney staff help ensure that the animals are in the area of the patrons which makes for a great viewing experience for little ones. As for eating; get the bread service as your appetizer,...

Easily my most favorite dining experience at Disney. Where else can your taste buds and eyeballs be transported to Africa to soak in the flavors while enjoying some of God's beautiful creation grazing in the Savannah? Giraffes, zebras, antelope all in sight while you sample the Sanaa Bread Service (a must) and then try one of their many combinations of... More
