Love this place and this food. Favorites are the olive tapenade and the eggplant dish. Great pitas. Very friendly workers, including Sanaa herself.

I have wanted to try Sanaa's for quite some time. I have been keep track of the owner, Sanaa Abourezk, as she has risen to fame and been on many foodie television programs. To our luck, we finally had the opportunity and it was buffet lunch on a Saturday. There were so many amazing dishes to try; Shish Tawook, Kufta... More

Our first time here. It was the Saturday buffet, a great way to try a lot of different food and find out what you like best. All of the food was wonderful. Well-prepared, FRESH, and so much flavor. Not 'fine dining' given the 'warehouse' like setting and as a result a bit noisy. The food was well-prepared with a lot... More

This is truly a destination for incredible eating. Sioux Falls is so lucky to have a place like this. Go early because on the weekends it fills beyond capacity.

In possibly the most unlikely of spots on the East Bank of Sioux Falls, this is one of the most yummy dining establishments around. A wide variety of dishes crafted by this most talented culinary team. When in Sioux Falls, take a departure from the large restaurant scene and enjoy the cuisine here.

We have eaten at Sanaa's many times and it is just simply the BEST!! Nothing pretentious-- just fantastic Mediterranean food made fresh from scratch daily-- even the unlimited piles of of homemade pita bread. Owner/operator Sanaa has published several cookbooks and is always present to make sure her food is served with love and care. If you're a vegetarian, you'll... More

The owner/chef appeared on Beat Bobby Flay. Must have been a stacked jury that kept her from winning. This was outstanding. Sanna's has to be one of the top three dinning experiences in all of South Dakota.

Great Mediterranean food in the heart of Sioux Falls. I love their weekend buffet lunches and during the week - carryout specials. Saana also provides her salads to local grocery stores so I can get a fix on the way home.

I was anxious to try Sanaa's after reading several positive reviews. I was not disappointed. For lunch I had the lentil and bulger with caramelized onions. It was deliciously flavored and filling without feeling stuffed. Most entrees come with a choice of salad and saffron rice that compliment the meal nicely. The homemade gluten free pits bread served with the... More

Authentic Mediterranean cuisine is usually found in much larger cities, but Sioux Falls, SD has its own and it's well worth visiting. My wife and I had the Saturday luncheon buffet and were not disappointed.
