I just do not have enough praise words in my vocabulary to express how pleased we were with our dining experience at Sanaa. We were seated at our reservation time and received prompt attention at our table. The bread service appetizer is not to be missed. I have taken several cooking classes on ethnic cuisine with an emphasis on curries... More

Sanaa overlooks the park with animals. You can also step out and get a closer view of the safari animals. Hosts who are actually from Africa and super friendly are on standby to take photos and answer questions. The lodge itself is beautiful. However the restaurant falls well below expectations. Especially for the price and as a Disney spot. We... More

Had a nice meal at Sanaa and glad we tried it, but won't be rushing back. We choose the bread with dips to start with, but half of them weren't very nice at all and pretty much all the breads were spicy. Our kids love Thai, Chinese and Indian food, so are used to spices and enjoy them, but none... More

Went to Sanaa with family after making a reservation 6 months prior. However when we got there we were made to wait for 1 hour when there was free tables. Then there was an hour and a half before we even got our meals after that. The meals were cold and gross. Not worth revisiting. The curries are sub-par as... More

At first we looked at the menu at home when we where making our dinning reservations and thought that we may not like the flavors offered. We decided to try it anyway and we were so glad we did. We even ended up eating there a second time the last night we were in disney. The Naan bread was amazing... More

This place is unique because it allows you to enjoy your dining experience will observing the giraffe and watusi (also known as Ankole Longhorn). The food is amazing and adventurous. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes trying new food. Even the children enjoyed it.

Went with my husband the last night we were there. Staff are very pleasant and friendly. Had a table right next to the window and was able to see an animal that was sitting near us, even with it being dark out. To start the drinks were fantastic, I had the watermelon margarita. We had the bread service which was... More

Ate here for Christmas dinner 2016. The atmosphere is great and the people working there were really nice. I ordered the steak, which was a mistake. I should have ordered something else, the fat was so hard to chew it wasn't edible and being a NY strip, it was everywhere. Probably only able to eat 2/3s of the steak. The... More

Nice strong flavors. The bread service is great. Make sure to try ALL the sauces. Really fun. The buttered chicken and spicy shrimp was really good. Slightly spicy but not overpowering. Boma and Jimo are still the top choices, but this is a good substitute.

We saved our quick service credit so we could experience this restaurant because the dinner required 2 table service credits. Great food! Although there was a limited selection for breakfast, everyone in our party enjoyed the meal and left full. A great way to remember our visit as we left. My huge waffle stayed with me all the way home!
