Boma has a fantastic variety of food choices. Make a reservation no matter what or expect to wait or not get it. Kill time in the bar upstairs, the buzzers reach that far! I have only had dinner there, never breakfast. The filet is amazing as well as the salmon. The ribs are a little sweet for my liking; there... More

This was my husband's and my first time at Boma. We had heard great things about it and finally tried it out. The salads were delicious! I especially enjoyed the heart of palm and artichoke salad. The seafood soup was also very good, but the highlight was the zebra desserts that we were told have a drop of amaretto inside.

Not a good start, when we lined up at the reservation desk there was already one customer complaining about his meal the night before and also his meal this night, seems they messed it up twice! The food was very average, the restaurant was extremely busy and very noisy, it was just like a school canteen. The lines were not... More

We visited Boma for dinner buffet. My family has dairy, and diabetic issues. Tgis buffet had options for all. Plenty of delicious soups, vegetables and meat and fish. My favorite was a papaya and avocado salad...other favorites were the salmon topped with a sweet nutty crust, a fish stew and the coconut rice. The waitress brought my daughter a sugar... More

Keep in mind that this is a buffet. I am sure that the food we had could be much better prepared if cooked to order. However, it was a great way to try many different types of African food. There was something for everyone, so do not be afraid to bring your kids - note if they are over 10... More

This was our first time to this restaurant. We had a reservation and they seated us with 10 minutes of checking in . They ave a tremendous variety of food...The soups we had were fantastic...the Carrot/Ginger soup, the coconut chicken curry and lentil sausage stood out. I did not find the chicken or tenderloin very African...it still was very good... More

This place has been reviewed frequently so I won't repeat what's already been said. Like a lot of the reviewers, Even though it's a buffet, I highly recommend this place for the food quality. If you do eat here, make sure you have the domed zebra dessert.

This was our second time at Boma. It was not as spectacular as I remembered, but it was still quite good. There is a wonderful variety of African inspired dishes to try, and I would recommend trying a little of everything. They do have nightly specials that they rotate out, so if you have a favorite that was a special,... More

We actually set up our reservation a month in advance. Even though we did not stay here we felt like it's an experience you must have at least once. It is pricey but worth it. The atmosphere is amazing. We sampled everything and left very full.
