1st time here, we are believers in the quality of Disney resort dining. The table was great with a nice view we saw Zebras, giraffes and other assorted animals. The bread sampler was excellent our meals were very good looking tasting and ample in portions. The service was as expected in a restaurant of this caliber. By no means inexpensive,... More

Overall good dinner, but it was pricey! We had the bread service which was a great way to start the dinner with 2 young teens and an older teen, it was a good way to sample and be an "adventurous" eater. I have one son with Peanut allergies and they were very thorough with the meal information. We mostly all... More

We loved Sanaa! It was the best meal of our whole trip to Disney. The atmosphere is beautiful. We started with the bread service...don't miss it! The butter chicken and dessert trio were delicious. I can't recommend Sanaa highly enough!

When you walk through the Animal Kingdom Lodge's Kidani Village lobby and make your way downstairs to Sanaa, you are immediately taken aback--- giraffes, scimitar antelopes, crown cranes, zebras, and other Animals found on the African savannah are walking around outside the window. We were immediately introduced to a cultural ambassador from Lesotho who told us about his country. Had... More

We went here for my son's birthday since he loves animals. The bread service was excellent. We got 3 dips: hummus, mango chutney, and cucumber. The butter chicken was delicious!

The atmosphere was very nice. It's always a treat to look out the window and see a giraffe or a zebra or a gnu! We had 6 people and a comfortable seating arrangement with plenty of space so we didn't feel crowded by each other or the other diners. After a long day in the park and on buses to... More

Last year, my daughter and I discovered this gem. I had been wanting to try it out for a long time, and my daughter finally agreed to go and it ended up being her favorite restaurant of the trip. Fast forward a year and we were coming back to Disney, but this time with my husband. I was nervous to... More

Having your meal whilst looking out onto the Savannah is priceless. The food was very average, service was good, but like all of Disneys restaurants overpriced.
