We went for dinner. It is a buffet. There were some foods that were new to us. We all tried new dishes and were pleasantly surprised. The new flavors were a great experience. Will definitely go back. Next time we will try breakfast since the smells were incredible.

This is a great restaurant for vegetarians and anyone who likes to eat healthily. Sure they have all the useful favourites you'd find on a Disney buffet, but they also have lots of authentic African dishes, and the great idea of a buffet is you can try a bit of everything. The setting is beautiful and the staff were great,... More

We discovered this place after eating at the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. For trips through Orlando when we are not going to the Animal Kingdom, we plan a stop at the Animal Kingdom Lodge to eat (we can't always take the time or spend the $ to go to the parks). They have a great spread for brunch and... More

I usually dislike buffets, especially because there is usually few options for me being a vegetarian. This restaurant is the exception! They had endless vegetarian options, and each one was more delicious than the last. A lot of them were healthy too. I actually left feeling full but not stuffed. Great atmosphere too.

Boma's has so many items that are new and different and not your run of the mill food. It's great to have some new flavors to choose from. The chef is great who takes you around and shows you everything you can have that is safe to eat. There's plenty of non-gf food too for everyone else!

The buffet at Boma was plentiful and diverse. There were items to please the varied palates of all five of us-- including those who preferred traditional "American" fare and those of us who wanted to try some new flavors. The food was well prepared, but I would say there was not much in the way of "wow" for the price... More

We were living off-site about 25 minute's away but thought the description was interesting, and it looked great when we observed it while dining at Jiko the night before. Although the food was very good, most of it was not really "exotic" or much different from "flavors of America/Europe." The price was very good for a Disney franchise, especially as... More

We ate at Boma on our first night at Disney and really enjoyed the food. We tried lots of different items at the Buffet and enjoyed them all. We especially liked the Zebra cakes!! We were seated quickly, the service was good and we enjoyed the small drum show as well.
