This buffet serves a different style of food with African spices. I enjoyed it but the rest of my party did not. If your not staying at the Lodge, it is a very long trek to get here. The best item for me was the Zebra Domes (Yummy).

I have never, in over 20 visits to Orlando over a period of 10 years, been to a Disney restaurant (beyond the on park facilities and even then only the basic ones). Not only have I not used such a facility; I have never had the desire to do so. I imagined their restaurants to be over priced and of... More

My man liked this place he said it was different then the rest of the breakfast buffets. I liked the food as well, but what I liked most about this place was my waiter. He was great just don't remember his name. Can't wait to go back this year and show parents the experience we had.

Located at the beautiful Animal Kingdom lodge, eating at Boma is an amazing experience...both visually and taste wise! I highly recommend heading to dinner where you can sample a huge array of African delicacies! A wide array of soups, salads, entrees and desserts are available for you to try...if the curried coconut seafood stew is available...TRY IT...you will wish you... More

This was our favorite restaurant on a previous trip, so we had to try it again this visit. But this time - we added breakfast in addition to dinner. The breakfast options were plentiful - with something for everyone. I tried the pap with roasted tomatoes and asparagus and it was delicious. For dinner, I did not think the options... More

BOMAS has been a fan favorite for my family for years! This restaurant is packed wall to wall with delicious simple foods that range from the well known to the lesser known . What makes it so good ? Simple , good recipes and great chefs! Craving a smorgus board of cut meats, pastas, salads, soups and desserts? Look no... More

if you are on the dining plan (why wouldn't you be) this is one of the best restaurants you could choose. We stayed at AKL for 11 days and ate dinner here 7 times. The coconut rice is to die for, the nut crusted salmon is pure heaven, the grapefruit,avocado salad is addicting. My tastebuds were overjoyed and I couldn't... More

Myself, and a 16 + 20 year old, had dinner here Sat Sept 6th. We all rated the food a 5 on a scale of 1-10. Only the salmon did we care for. Far overrated....... was really disappointed after reading such great reviews.

We tried Boma for the first time on our 5th Disney trip. Wish we had tried it the first time!! The food is different than anything you have probably had before. I loved the salmon with a thick crust (I know one of the ingredients was pecans). They had carved beef and something that I thought resembled jerk chicken, but... More
