The Satu’li Canteen in Pandora-The World of Avatar is now open for DVC and Annual Passholder Previews. We visited Satu’li on May 13th during our Annual Passholder Preview and decided to try lunch at this new restaurant. Here is our Lunch Review of Satu’li Canteen in Pandora-The World of Avatar.
As you enter Satu’li Canteen the ordering, and pick-up, station is located to the left. You can pick up a menu or just take a look at the overhead menus on display. The Disney Dining Plan is accepted here and a meal will cost you one Quick Service Dining Credit. You can choose to create your own Satu’li Bowl or a Steamed Pods Bao Bun Meal. Kids’ Meals are also available.
Beverages vary from soft drinks, to Specialty drinks with, and without, alcohol. We ordered the Moonwalker Sangria which is actually a blue Sangria. This drink was fruity and quite tasty. You also have the option to purchase your non-alcoholic beverages in a Na’vi Flute Cup for $13.49. The Flute does detach from the cup and can be used as a musical instrument.
For our meals we ordered the Cheeseburger “Pods” meal, the Create Your Own Satu’li Bowl, and the Teylu All Beef Hot Dog Kids’ Meal. The Cheeseburger “Pods” Meal was interesting. We particularly liked the Slaw with the Boba. The Cheeseburger Pods were a combination of seasoned ground beef, mixed with chunks of beef, and wrapped in a “Pod.” This was good, although not our favorite as we thought the “Pod” was a bit dry for our taste. For the Create Your Own Satu’li Bowl we ordered the Slow-Roasted Sliced Grilled Beef from Step 1, the Mixed Whole Grain & Rice from Step 2, and asked for samplings on the side of all 3 sauces (Charred Onion Chimichurri, Black Bean Vinaigrette & Creamy Herb Dressing). This meal was our favorite with the beef being cooked beautifully; full of flavor and moist. The sauces were all good with each of us agreeing that the Black Bean Vinaigrette was our favorite sauce option. We also ordered the Teylu All Beef Hot Dog Kids’ Meal with chips and grapes. The Hot Dog was wrapped in a dough that was similar in texture and flavor to a soft biscuit.
When visiting Walt Disney World Calories don’t count and no meal is complete without dessert, also known as “Ber’ri” in the Na’vi language. You can choose from Chocolate Cake and Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse. We ordered one of each and found we did not really care for the chocolate cake as it is quite bitter. If you enjoy Chocolate Mousse, you will likely enjoy this option. We enjoyed the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse and were fascinated that the inside of the Blueberry Cream Cheese Mousse was lavender. Both dessert options have beautiful presentation and count as a snack credit under the Disney Dining Plan.
The decorative elements related to the plants and the artistic design of the Na’vi people provide some interesting things to look at and the seating in the restaurant is a decent size. There were a lot of people there, but we did not have any difficulty grabbing a table. We highly recommend a visit to the Satu’li Canteen when you visit Pandora-The World of Avatar. While the flavors may challenge your palate, there is something there for everyone.
