We had Thanksgiving dinner here this trip, and it was wonderful! I had their fish special, and it was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had. I do think their bread service is way overpriced, but we ordered it anyway (I don't think I will get it in the future though--just not worth it). My 16-year old daughter... More

We were on the dining plan (includes main meal and dessert), and booked this restaurant a while before we went. The decor is really nice, and fits with the African theme. Our waitress was lovely, very attentive and knowledgeable. I would recommend starting off with the bread service with nine dips - very yummy and plenty to share between three... More

I recently had 2:30 reservations for lunch at Sanaa. I arrived early and was given a pager. The woman at the front desk suggested I wait on the extended pathway where I could watch the animals, which made my wait pass very quickly. I was seated immediately when the pager buzzed. That's where things started to go wrong. I ordered... More

Unique restaurant with very good food. Our waitress, Amy, was extremely friendly and efficient. Because it was Thanksgiving, they did offer a turkey dinner. All our orders were good.

I'm not one to typically do multiple TA reviews for a restaurant unless something has significantly changed. Unfortunately, that is the case with Sanaa. Sanaa has historically been our favorite restaurant at WDW and we go there about every other trip. Our visit the Sunday before Thanksgiving was probably our 5th or 6th time there. I have to say that... More

Dining at Sanaa was a treat. We had made reservations and noted that we needed dairy-free vegetarian dining options for a member of our party. Once seated, that individual was given a dairy-free menu without having asked for it. She had several choices for appetizers and entress. That is rare at most resorts. The food was excellent, as was the... More

Atmosphere was great, service was great, and was a nice experience. The famous bread service from Sanaa-- We only really liked 3-4 sauces and 2 breads. Not worth it. No pictures of entrees because we were starving but I had tandoori chicken which wasn't bad I just wish there wasn't as much sauce served with it and it was a... More

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
