I love Sanaa. She lives her food and we are grateful witness to her artisans expressions. Healthy and hearty selection. Cheerful and attentive staff keeping the guests comfortable. My favorite restaurant in all the Dakotas. Come on Friday or Saturday night for the buffet.

You order at the counter and the food is prepared in front of you. It's already cooked and all, kinda like a buffet and they put it on a plate. I got this chicken calzone-type thing and it tasted ok. I didn't like the rice or salad. Not the place for me I guess.

On our west-east trek on I-90 we exited to have lunch here. What a treat to have freshly made, healthy, and flavorful middle eastern food. In the middle of a mid-west thunder storm. Nice break.

A great way to try Sanaa's is the Friday night or Saturday noon buffet. There will be a variety of dishes for you to try. Sanaa's is also great for a great quick meal that isn't fast food. When the lunch hour is short I know I can easily grab a good meal in a short time.

Visited after reading the reviews and was NOT disappointed. Not only were the buffet dishes tasty and the prices, reasonable, but they aim to please the customer in every way. The BEST hummus and olive tapenade. Well worth the trip!!

We were on a road trip through the Dakotas, and despaired of finding good vegetarian food. Google and Happy Cow directed us to this restaurant, and we were so happy we drove a little out of the way to find Sanaa's. The food was great, the staff was very friendly and a happy time was had by all! They had... More

Having grown up in Seattle-there were many ethnic cuisines one could choose. I find Sanaas to be a wonderful place to enjoy food from the Middle East. The dishes are prepared with grains, fresh vegetables and fruits, fish, other meats, seasoned with olive oil and flavors from herbs and spices. She is often present in her establishment. The dining room... More

I went through the buffet today, despite, for whatever reason, being wary of buffets. The waiters were very attentive and kind. As for the food, it was delicious and there were a lot of vegan options. Definitely would go back if I had the chance.

I visited this awesome restaurant with my sister and truly enjoyed the Kufta lunch special, which was fresh, gluten free and delicious! I would definitely go back again. I met the owner, Sanaa who was quite welcoming as were all of her staff. I highly recommend this spot for a yummy lunch or dinner! Prices were fair.
