Great Breakfast Buffet!

We went here for their breakfast buffet. There were a wide variety of foods and they were all good. We especially liked their juice. However, it is a bit overpriced.

This was our third time visiting Boma. It was as great of a visit as the other two times. Certainly, not a cheap dining option, but the wide range of food and quality of food and service makes up for it. This place is a "can't miss" spot on our family's itinerary when visiting Orlando. This visit we learned about... More

An excellent breakfast buffet. We are South Africans, and the children couldn't get enough of the 'pap' although it was clear everyone else didn't know you were supposed to eat the sauce on the pap. Interesting that it is an African restaurant, but that the food had Afrikaans (South Africa being the only country in the world where Afrikaans is... More

Great buffet in a great hotel. I have been to Bacchanal, Spice Market, Wicked Spoon (all in Vegas) and Boma tops all of them in my opinion. Service was great from the hostess to the waitress. stroller parking is available. the theme is very nice. Now about the food, the Boerewors sausage stew was my favorite item. I didn't see... More

This is a pricey endeavor so my best recommendation is that you time it just right so you can get the most of your experience. We went at 8:30 at night and it was almost too full to fully enjoy. It's a buffet with foods from Africa. At $40 per adult, drinks are extra, you want to be able to... More

After a day at Disney this was an awesome end to the day. The food was great and the service was awesome. The staff was wonderful answering questions in regards to gluten free options for my daughter who has celiacs. I highly recommend this restaurant!

We ate in 10 table service restaurants whilst in Disney and we ate in Boma on our last night. This was the best food I had in all the restaurants in Disney. Try the curried cabbage, the selection is varied and there is something for everyone.

As if it weren't special enough for Disney buffs to get to go to the Animal Kingdom Lodge, it then gets to boast a fabulous buffet flavored by the various regions of Africa (as interpreted by Floridian chefs, of course). There is actual spicy food here, with a flavor profile that defies some of the more gray-and-white offerings Disney has... More
