We booked this restaurant in advance as a special end to a day in Animal Kingdom. On arrival we didn't want to be seated too soon because it was so enjoyable to look out at the animals from the waiting area. Even though we'd been looking at animals all day this felt more relaxed and exclusive. We went on other... More

Sanaa was recommended by a host at another restaurant (Chad, Bongos) early in our vacation. We are so happy that we listened to him. We went to Sanaa and sat at the bar which was very comfortable. The bartender was fantastic. We ordered the bread with the dipping sauces, based on the recommendation. It was incredibly good. We didn't try... More

If you are looking for a great ethnic food experience you must head to Sanaa at the Kidani House at Animal Kingdom Lodge. The naan is made fresh to order in their clay ovens, and the journey bowls are delicious. I had the Goan seafood curry and chickpea wat which I would order once a week of I could. My... More

We had great service, a filling and delicious meal and a fun show to watch on the ‘savannah’ during our meal. Our server handled our nut allergy with ease and didn’t bat an eye to helping make meal suggestions. We opted for the full bread service as a starter along with two safari amber beers. The service was fast, beers... More

We were unable to reserve a table inside Animal Kingdom while visiting there this March even though we tried booking two months ahead. We needed to have dinner nearby because we wanted to see the new River of Lights show, which by the way was excellent. (just a side note, unlike all other fireworks at Disney World, you do need...

We have eaten at many restaurants at Disney. The service and food here is very good. The use of spices from different areas of Africa and the Middle East are a welcome change from your standard American fare. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Our only complaint would be that there are windows opening up onto the Savannah by the... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Sanaa - from the great cocktails to the unusual deserts. The menu is very interesting; and our waiter, Boyson, had great recommendations. We loved the bread (naan) sampler with 13 unusual sauces. We tried the duck, the lamb shank, and the butter chicken. All were delicious. It was also great to see the variety... More

We love this restaurant. Located at Animal Kingdom Lodge you eat at a fantastic restaurant and get the value added of Disney magic. Before and after your dining experience, be sure to venture outside to view the African animals. After dark, you have the opportunity to use the night vision goggles. The restaurant food is really good. We recommend a... More
