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

Great selections, could use just a few more maybe but what was there was good. I have to say it was expensive! We didn't look at the price first because we knew we wanted to try it anyways seeing as we were only there one night (about $25 a person I believe) but the staff was A+, so sweet and... More

If I had not been on the Disney dining plan, I would have been very disappointed that I'd spent that much money for food that no one in our party particularly liked. We stayed at the AKL and every time we walked through the lobby thought the smell from the restaurant was amazing, sadly the the taste did not match.... More

We stayed at AKL and had both the breakfast and dinner buffets at Boma. Wonderful, fresh, authentic food. The French toast was divine!! Nice service from the staff. Great atmosphere. Will return!

Really great buffet. Yes, it IS pricey for a buffet, even in comparison to other Disney restaurants, but the food is really good. This is not a $15 dollar menu, this is a great buffet. My daughter has a. nut allergy, and one of the chef's was sent out- he walked us through the entire food area, which was a... More

If you have the dinning plan which I recommend any time you go to Disney then this is a great choice to try something different if you don't have the dinning plan then it is a little pricey for a buffet. However the African food is great and being a buffet you can try many different things with out worrying... More
