We were a little hesitant to go to an Indian/African restaurant. However once we arrived our server made us feel very comfortable and assured us that she would be sure our food would not be spicy. Our server was successful in that attempt. We love the taste of the food, the bread appetizer was fantastic! Would highly recommend this restaurant... More

We didn't get to sit right by a window but most of my table was able to see out the window. An African Crowned Crain was literally begging for food from this table it was really funny. The food was all wonderful. I have attempted to make buttered chicken just to relive its glory. The best part however, was the... More

We had a dinner reservation here for my birthday. Our server was very attentive and nice. The wine was good, the bread service outstanding, and the butter chicken was out of this world. The durbin shrimp was very spicy-be warned. My mom had the lamb which was a little over cooked. My husband had a custom Disney cake delivered for... More

Hands down, this is the best meal I've had at a Disney restaurant. Great food, great views. Was nice to look round the hotel also.

My husband and I loved this restaurant. Bread service was amazing with all the little sauces. Steaks were cooked perfectly and were delicious.

Raining? No s-wet! Enjoy the savannah view so the kids are busy while you enjoy the very nice indian food. Giraffe do not like rain so they just stand still below the trees...just learned something. If you do not have much of an appetite (even if you do) I strongly suggest you take the bread plate with 4 different types... More

I went to Sanaa for lunch. I did not have reservations, but they seated me as soon as possible without a long wait. I asked for a window table and I was thrilled I did. The view is amazing and the animals are so much fun to watch. The food was great and it was my first time trying the... More

We didn't eat here but had a few drinks at the bar. Casual atmosphere and a very friendly staff. Looked like a great place to have lunch but just couldn't fit it in for a meal.

Perfect date night here. The service is the best as it is not a huge place . And the food try the bread plate for an appetizer. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. Definitely save room for dessert.
