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

We had the flatbread and 9 dips for an appetizer . The range from spicy to mild tastes were very distinct and worth the price. The dinner of Durban spicy shrimp with rice and a tomato and okra " soup" was a delightful dinner. There was a mixed crowd and a lot of young children which at times were distracting.

We are staying at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge for four nights and are trying their two signature restaurants during our visit. We had had a full day at the Animal Kingdom Park and were looking for a light dinner. We started our meal with the Indian-style Bread Service Choice of Five Breads - Traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan, Spiced Naan,... More

African fare but mainstream with great views of the animals from most tables. Go for lunch as you cannot see the animals at night.

We had a late lunch here and enjoyed every bite! My friend was visiting from London, England and couldn't believe how wonderful the food and service was (as well as the great view of the savannah).

Can't say enough good things about this place. The bread service, which alot of people mentioned is worth it. Get all 9 sauces and combine several of them for a tasty treat. It was a fun atmosphere with the animals right outside the window. We got the butter chicken and coconut vegtables with the jasmine rice. Combined that with the... More

I loved this restaurant! I have never had African food so I was excited to try something new. The server was great at making recommendations. I would highly recommend the bread service. Don't try to guess which 5 sauces you want, pay the $2.00 extra to get all the sauces. I had the lamb shank and the meat just fell... More

Whatever else you order, order the naan bread service and all nine of the sauces. The filet was very good, but the bread was outstanding.
