We have made an ADR here for our quick 48 hour Disney jaunt in September with my DW's Aunt who is 60 years old and has never been to Disney. Just wondering what your experience was and the quality of the food.

We are staying at an Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House Savanah view room for one night. We are not going into the parks and instead just going to enjoy what the rest of the property and Animal Kingdom Lodge, in particular, has to offer.

My DW and I went when it first opened. I ordered the fish wrapped in banana leaf which was merely OK, but nothing to write home about. The rest of the meal was quite good. We just haven't been able to make it back there recently though.

We went in 2009, loved the place and the eating right beside the animals!

The food was pretty good, and the chai mousse was exquisite!

We've been. Not a huge fan. The food was mediocre, and the server totally clueless (which is pretty unusual for Disney).

Haven't been back. :shrug: (The decor is the best thing about the place)!

How long ago Tink?

We have been twice for dinner and i am very fussy and so there are certain items I love and others not so much -DH loves it though. Notable items were the samosas and the bread service which were delicious and the mango lassi and the tapioca berry dessert which was one of my favourites! Next year we will go back at lunchtime as I really like the look of the tandoori naan bread sandwiches!
It is a lovely setting and we have had very good servers both visits :)

Closer to when it first opened.

Thanks Tink. The theme for the poor reviews seem to have happened close to the time after opening. More recent reviews on Trip Adviser are much better. Maybe they got out all the kinks?

Now that would be a good thing. The restaurant itself is a fun place to visit. The items on the walls, and the decor overall make for a nicely themed place. If they worked out the food quality (and that itself is odd, given the negative impact of the DDP on all Disney dining) and had better trained servers, then it could certainly be a casual dining option.

Clearly, the only answer for it is for you to go and then do a review for us!

Wendy I don't think Sanaa would fit Chris's appetite. For starters I don't remember seeing Chips on the Menu. :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

:shrug: Chips? We've dined any number of times with Chris when he's not selected chips? :shrug:

Disney Freak, photos and a review of the current "state" of Sanaa would be wonderful! :yes:

To tell you the truth Tink I'm amazed. When we spent time with him in England it seemed like he asked for chips with every meal, including Chinese. He's truly a great guy though.

Well, I hardly think that what someone chooses to eat is going to detract from who they are. :unsure:

I don't mean it that way. I'm just joking about his penchant for chips which is all meant in jest as Wendy well knows.

Sometimes joking can come across heavy handed, eh? :shrug: As long as that wasn't your intent, then no harm.
