Review: Sanaa for Lunch

Do you see the Hidden Mickey at the entrance to Sanaa?

Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Kidani Village is one of Walt Disney World Resorts hidden dining gems. We’ve been there a couple of times for dinner and enjoyed the Indian-African fusion cuisine thoroughly. When the opportunity came to grab a table for lunch we quickly made reservations.

Upon entering the restaurant we immediately saw one of the benefits of dining at lunch, you can see directly out to the savannah shared by Jambo House and Kidani Village. For much of the year, it’s dark out by the time dinner seatings start, so you don’t get to see the animals walk right by the restaurant while you’re dining. Giraffes, Cranes, Ostriches and more all passed by while we dined. That very much adds to the charm of Sanaa.

Speaking of charm, service was outstanding from the greeting through to the delivery of the check. My only quibble was with the pace of delivery. Our appetizers took a long time to come out and then our entree followed almost immediately. Due to the nature of Sanaa’s ‘little plates’ feel, I didn’t mind it too much, it was must more flavors to consider and they made up for it with an extra portion of appetizer.
