Sanaa Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Part of the expansion of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Sanaa has terrific views of the hotel’s savannah where giraffes, ostriches, water buffalo and other animals wander within a few feet of the glass windows for a fascinating, unpredictable dinner show. The kitchen offers a taste of Africa and India’s aromatic cuisine, starting with Indian-style breads: naan, onion kulcha and paneer paratha, served with addictive tastes of raitas, chutneys, hummus and pickles---try the garlic pickle and the red chile sambal. With two custom tandoor ovens, tandoori shrimp, chicken and lamb are specialties, but we also suggest the slow-cooked lamb in a hearty chakalaka sauce and the shrimp in green curry sauce. Sustainable fish is served in curry broth; simple chicken breast is served in a rich sauce of cherries and root vegetables. And true to the Indian style of the place, there is a lovely and filling vegetarian sampler. For dessert, try the assortment with traditional kulfi (like Indian ice cream), the chai cream and chocolate cake. Wines are from around the globe, with pairings offered with main courses.
