Very unique dining experience for Disney. The food, being more ethnic in nature, is different than most Disney food, which provides a nice change. Food is excellent and the service is great. The servers have a fantastic knowledge of the dishes, and are happy to explain each one, and offer advice. You can't beat the view from the dining room either, if you like watching animals. As an added bonus, by Disney standards, the food here is fairly affordable.

LOVED IT! Very professional and friendly staff. Our table wasn't quite ready on time but we spent the time waiting on the viewing deck so the time flewGreat view of the animals on the deck and during dinner; the kids were enchanted. Great selection and great food. They also had the cleanest bathroom I have ever experienced in a restaurant. I would go again and recommend it with a double thumbs up.

We ate here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and we are so glad we did. Very nice, laid back resort and restaurant. We went for lunch - we had a 12:00 reservation but got there a bit early and we had time to go out on the back patio to look at the animals. Also, got a seat right at the window. The window seats were full by 12:15 so I recommend going early if you want a window. They feed the animals so you are pretty much guaranteed to see them. Lunch was delicious! My daughter was very happy because she got a mac and cheese but my husband and I got sandwiches (he got the cheesburger and I got the ground lamb burger). They both had a wonderful sauce and were served with lots of veggy topping on the special Indian bread. Delicious and different. The atmosphere was great. Service was great. Go here if you want to get out of the crowds.

The views from the dining room are great. If you make a reservation between 6:30 and 7:00pm for dinner, you'll see lots of animals coming out to eat their treats from windows right at your table! The chef came out to visit our table as well. The food is delicious, mainly Indian flavors. Pretty ingenious Disney! I will return!
