Oh my, why in the world did it take me 4 trips to Disney before trying Sanaa?! Our family of four dined for a late lunch after spending the morning at Animal Kingdom. What a fun & unique dining venue. You can easily view zebras, giraffes, and other wildlife as you dine. Listen to all the reviewers and get the... More

Seated pretty soon after arriving, nice table for two by a window. We could see animals from our table all evening. Food was average, the beef was tender but not a lot of flavor, side dish was cilantro and coconut vegetables. I only ate part of the meal flavors just did not appeal to me. The bread tasting was very... More

Sanaa offers a free tasting every day at 4 pm and there is a drum circle when they open. The people who work in the restaurant are from Africa and it is fascinating to talk to them and hear about their culture.

Excellent service, and a great menu. Well worth the time to visit and have dinner. If you arrive early enough walk around the resort as we did and you may get to see various animals before darkness falls. We recommend the "Indian Bread Service" it is very tasty and complements the meals served.

Walk down a flight of steps, turn the corner and walk into another country at another time A few steps into the door just as you pass some African wisdom on the wall you are greeted with an inviting smell of spice that beckons you into the spice market. A land where your adventuresome tastebuds are set free to experience... More

Great meal and atmosphere. As someone who didn't want to come here due to not liking the cuisine we came as my other half loves it. I did manage to find something on the menu I would eat. We shared the bread service to start which was great and all the sauces with it were good. I ordered the steak... More

We loved our visit to this restaurant. The food was excellent and the kids loved seeing all the animals right outside. Most of the wait staff was from different areas of Africa and were very attentive and pleasant. We will definitely eat here again!

We went here for lunch and walked around outside to look at the animal for awhile and it was so unique. When we got to our table we were talked into the bread service. I was not nuts about all of the sauces but I would defiantly get this again. After eating the bread we wished we had not ordered... More

After checking into the AKL Kidani Village we decided to have lunch at Sanaa. Several tables within the restaurant have Savanna views so you can see some of the animals on property. If you do NOTHING else during your stay or trip to AKL...you MUST try the bread service. I never thought I would like naan just by looking at... More

The view was awesome. Animals visible as we walked in, but it went down from there. My wife ordered steak. It had so much fat that it was inedible. Our UBER driver had recommended the butter chicken so I ordered that. Instead the waitress brought me beef. I try not to eat red meat, but the meat was covered in... More
