- Dine here for lunch. You can’t see the animals after dark. Request a window table for an even closer view of the beautiful animals outside.
- The restaurant is located in Kidani Village, which is about a quarter of a mile away from Animal Kingdom Lodge’s main building, Jambo House. To get there, either park at Jambo House and walk to Kidani Village via the pathway, or park right at Kidani Village. Ask at the guardhouse for directions.
Famous Dishes: Indian-style bread service, Vegetarian sampler (Paneer Cheese and Spinach, Stewed Lentils, Spicy Cauliflower, Onions, Tomatoes, and Mint), Tandoori meats, slow-cooked short ribs.
