The Sanaa Restaurant at the Animal Kingdom Lodge

The Sanaa Restaurant

We had lunch at the Sanaa Restaurant at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was wonderful. We were seated right by the windows and watched the giraffes, zebras, and other animals grazing while we ate.

I ordered the Turkey Club Sandwich and Caroline ordered the Beef Short Ribs, and we split the meals in half so we could share it. Both meals were delicious! 🙂

Located in Kidani Village and overlooking the savannah, this restaurant draws its inspiration from the cuisines along the historical spice route of Africa, India, China, and Europe. Sanaa means “works of art” in Swahili and its decor draws inspiration from the African marketplace with handicrafts upon the walls. Serving foods from tandoor ovens as well as slow-cooked specialties, the selections here are filled with flavourful spices of Africa.
