Let me start off by saying I'm a pretty picky eater & would certainly not describe myself as "adventurous" when it comes to my food. My husband on the other hand is the opposite. We both LOVE Sanaa. We eat here every time we come...More

The first time somebody invited me here and said it was African food, I was not too excited about it. After I went, I asked myself why I waited so long to try this place! The African theme, Cast Members who all come from Africa...More

This restaurant on the lower level of Kidani Village has views of the animals at the Animal Kingdom Villas. Food is excellent, mostly Indian variations with other more indigenous African influences. Service was very attentive but food was very slow coming out. We were there...More

You MUST take the time to head over to Animal Kingdom Lodge and eat at Sanaa. We went right at opening, had a great server, an amazing view of the animals outside, and an outstanding meal! We ordered a variety of plates- the Naan bread...More

Yes, you need to get the full-blown bread sampler. Gluten free bread is available and only one sauce has dairy. Tandoori chicken was excellent. Service was great. We went for lunch at noon and was able to get a window seat and enjoyed the animals...More

Sure, casual is fine. While it's a nicer restaurant, it's still Disney.
We have an 11 year old son that will be dining with us. He is a picky eater and usually just orders a kids meal cheeseburger and fries. Can he order a kids meal at Sanaa and pay the kids meal price? I've read that anyone over 9 gets charged adult prices at WDW. Can someone please clarify this for me? Thank you!

What is offered on the kids menu for dinner? Will we be able to view animals after dark? Is the Savanna lit up at night?

After dark there is really no good view of the Savannah from inside Sanaa. We got our kids some grilled chicken with some green beans on the side. I don't remember the other options. Check the menu on Disney's website!
