I was really looking forward to our trip to Boma, and I was not dissappointed. We had a large group with kids and teens and a few picky eaters. The food was great with some unusual dishes for the more adventurous in our group, but enough familiar dishes to satisfy the others. Everyone in our group Really enjoyed it. It's... More

I enjoyed the food here but the atmosphere felt too loud and crowded. We had delicious food but the real winner was the carving station with all the meats. My personal favorite was the Bobotie dish. Try it if you get a chance. The only other complaint I have is that it is way too pricey. It was over 100... More

We had reservations here because we were staying at the resort. The food was good, but it is a buffet and you will stand in line. I don't know that I would consider it out of the norm with foods. Nothing really stood out to me as being different. It seemed lack luster for us so much so we didn't... More

Boma is usually a must-do for our family on a Disney vacation. This time I felt the food was not quite as good as usual, but still tasty. My vegetarian daughter had a hard time finding something she would eat, so she had a $40 plate of mac-n-cheese from the kids' buffet! The carving station beef and pork was delicious... More

Not really a great selection of food, 2 chicken, 1 fish, 1 vegetable, lots of carbs and grains, ribs and beef. Food was ok. Our server was great but for 2 people, no drinks the bill was just under $80.00.

My uncle had recommended this restaurant for our recent trip to Disney and we are so glad he did! It was amazing! The atmosphere at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is awesome, and the food at BOMA was out of this world! We loved all the african seasoning on the meats.The soups were delicious. And do not miss the Zebra Domes... More
