My wife and I were pretty jazzed for our dinner here, but didn't think it lived up to the reviews we've seen. We ordered the bread service (pictured) with all five breads and three sauces. The three sauces we chose -- red pepper hummus, tamarind chutney and red chile sambal -- were excellent. I can't emphasize that enough. But the... More

Let me start by saying that this was our fifth visit to Sanaa and we continued to love the food. I could go on about all the great flavors and dishes we had ordered this time but many reviewers before me have done a great job at that already. I would like to write instead about the lackluster service and... More

The good: The bread service and 9 accompaniments was interesting and tasty. The bad: We had the lamb Sosatie. We love lamb but this lamb had a tough membrane running through each piece making the lamb inedible. My guest had the same dish and had the same bad lamb. The next day we could not stop talking about it. We... More

We stayed at AKV, Kidani Village and we loved it! On our first night here we ate at Sanaa'. Ate here with my daughter and sister. The restaurant was themed African and Indonesian decorum. Kidani only has the one restaurant with a lounge. We started with the "bread service". We really liked the different sauces and pita breads. As for... More

Sanaa is my husband’s favorite restaurant at Walt Disney World, and we were able to dine there on each of our trips to The World this year. We had dinner in May and lunch in October, and enjoyed both immensely, as food and service were as exemplary as we have come to expect. I didn’t write a review back in... More

I love this restaurant. You have to try the bread appetizer where you get a selection of 5 breads and do for the full set of sauces. The butter chicken and braised beef is amazing - my favorite!

My wife and I read up on this place before going there on our last Disney trip and the reviews were solid, if not great. So it was a bit of a surprise to us when this place completely blew our mind. Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an incredible resort, and it's main restaurant, Sanaa, is no different. This was... More

This is a great restaurant but not as great as it once was. The atmosphere is still one of the best at Disney but since they did away with the African Spice Chicken our visits have been a lot less frequent. I have never eaten anything as good as that chicken dish, why they got rid of it is beyond... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked our reservation but was I surprised. The food was out of this world. In fact the dish that I had was completely vegetarian and I love meat, but it was the tastiest food I have ever eaten. the atmosphere was also top notch and you could look out the window and...

Right next to giraffes wondering around, the atmosphere is spectacular. Very friendly service and interesting, delicious food. I recommend the bread service.
