Best buffet ever

I am not a fan of buffets. Steam tables and mediocre food are not my idea of fine dining. Boma is a big exception. It is outstanding. No steam tables.

Might want to note that on the menu that it's not included in buffet. Everything else was great. Our... More

Boma is a very good buffet restaurant in the Jambo House Villas at the Animal Kingdom. The food is very plentiful and good. Best of all, the children who are on a Disney meal plan can partake in the buffet, liberally picking whatever they want.

Based on all the reviews we decided to have breakfast at Boma. Unfortunately, it came up short of our expectations. It was really just an overpriced American buffet, with a few "African" names given to some of the dishes. We pre booked via our Disney App and we were allocated a time of 08:50 which was fine, but by 09:00... More

Had breakfast here before we left. Great food stations! Remember that they are setup in stations, just go to the section that has the food you want, grab a plate and dig in!

Excellent dishes available. An african inspired buffet with lovely curries (african/asian mix) beef and other gorgeous food on offer. Fantastic if you are on the disney dining plan. You must reserve a table as these places book up fast. It is rather noisy but what do you expect? It's disney! All the hustle and bustle adds to the atmosphere. Don't... More

Every time we visit I have to eat there! The breakfast is AMAZING!! The have authentic African breakfast items as well as traditional breakfast items. You must try the eggs with spinach and goat cheese and the bread pudding. To me these are by far the best! It is a good value for the cost and the atmosphere is beautiful.... More

This was our go-to restaurant while staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Lots of choices and reasonable when you're feeding a family of 4 or 5.
