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.

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.
