Guests will find Satu’li Canteen tucked into the back of Pandora, underneath the floating Hallelujah Mountains. The restaurant is close to Pongu Pongu, another Quick Service location serving snacks and frozen beverages, and Wind Traders, a merchandise location in the Mo’ara Valley. Nearby, Guests can find the popular attractions Na’vi River Journey and Flight of Passage.

Quick Service or Table Service?

Satu’li Canteen is a Quick Service location, meaning Guests do not need a dining reservation to eat here. This restaurant is popular due to its unique menu and intricately themed dining room. Due to its popularity, Mobile Order is available at this location. We recommend Mobile Order as a great way to skip the line while dining in Pandora.

Menu Options

Satu’li Canteen offers delicious menu options that, in our opinion, are some of the best in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The menu offers various bowls, including Chili-Garlic Shrimp, Chopped Wood-Grilled Chicken, Slow-Roasted Sliced Grilled Beef, Combination Bowl with Beef and Chicken, and the Ocean Moon Bowl. The menu also offers a plant-based Chili-Spiced Crispy Fried Tofu Bowl. All bowls are served over a base choice of red and sweet potato hash, noodles, rice, and beans, or a hearty salad.

One of our menu favorites is the Cheeseburger Steamed Pods Bao Buns. Don’t knock this combination until you try it. These sweet and savory buns come with sides of crunchy vegetable slaw and vegetable chips.

This restaurant offers allergy-friendly menus to accommodate Guests with gluten/wheat, egg, fish/shellfish, milk, peanut/tree nut, sesame, and soy allergies. For the complete menu, Guests can visit the My Disney Experience app.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
