Portion sizes at Sanaa too small?

In all of the photos I see from Sanaa of the pick two with rice look small. Are they really as small as they look? Are they filling? It also seems like there just isn't enough rice for all that amazing looking sauce. Thoughts?

Also some more reviews of specific menu options would be great!

I couldn't finish mine. I don't use sauce on the Basmati rice.

We started with the bread service as an appetizer, which was quite filling...so we thought the dinner portion size was just right.

Hubby and I both had the pick two along with the bread service. Plenty of food, almost couldn't eat our deserts.

Thank you all for the replies! I couldn't talk my DH into trying Sanaa on our last two trips, but I'm not even asking him this time. He's not an adventurous eater at all, but based on the reviews, he'll be fine here!

The bowls for the "pick two" option are deceiving. They look small in pictures, but I swear there were 20 shrimp in that "little" bowl. The portions were just as large as they are in other Disney restaurants, and the food was fantastic.

The bowls are deceiving, as they really do hold a good amount of food. You're meant to dump the contents of each bowl onto the plate it's served on; rice in the middle, protein on each side. This way you get to 'mix' the sauces with the rice easily.

I can assure you the portions are NOT small, especially considering how truly delicious and rich (especially the butter chicken!) the entrees are!
