The buffet was very good, had numerous food choices. Not your typical Disney fare which is nice. The African influence meant for items like cous cous, mongos, currey, and zebra chocolate deserts. The restaurant is very busy, wait times can get long, and it is very noisy. It is interesting to check out Animal Kingdom Lodge while you wait.

I come here every year for 3 years now on my birthday. The curried pasta salad is amazing! They have a wide variety of African inspired soups, meats, salad, and side dishes. They also have mac n cheese, chicken, and spaghetti for kids!

Food okay but in quantity as its a buffet. Variety of grilled meats, salads, soups, the usual and not so usual. Very loud, they pack 'em in here and the acoustics not good. Average wine , beer and cocktail list. Would have possibly rated it a bit higher were it not for the surly waiter who felt he wasn't being... More

I enjoyed our meal at Boma. The foods were fun and interesting. I would have liked them to be even more authentic, as they were really American foods, with an African flair. The only problem was that it was so crowded. In spite of a 7:40 reservation made moths in advance, we were not seated until around 8:30.

One of the best self service food at disney. A lot of options, great desert and nice atmosphere. Service is very good and you can book it in some cases for the same day.

Ate here for breakfast again on this past trip. On my last trip to Disney, I stayed at AKL, so it was easy to get here for breakfast. This past trip, I was staying at another resort so we had to take a bus to AK and then a bus from there to AKL. Disney recommends allowing an hour to... More

My family of 4 had breakfast here before a day at Animal Kingdom. We didn't stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge but decided to try this place as we'd never been. It has all the breakfast items you'd expect and more, in all-you -can-eat fashion. The hotel and restaurant were very, very nice and the food was just above average.... More

This restaurant has a welcoming staff and wonderfully delicious food. The curry pasta salad, peanut coconut rice, and the chicken curry soup are among my favorites.
