Great selection of food. Pleased all of our party of 16 with both "different" traditional African food, as well as more American items. One complaint was that we had a 6:00 dining time and we're not seated until after 6:30 - only due to asking about our table about 4 times.

We had dined at Boma for dinner in 2009 and loved it. Unfortunately, they have since raised the price for dinner to $37.99/person and the quality of the food is not worthy of this price tag (and no character dining in this experience, if you wanted to argue the price tag). The food is buffet style and it's all dishes... More

Our grandsons enjoyed getting to play the African drums. The buffet had a wide selection so everybody in our party found plenty to eat. I liked all of the different vegetables.The men liked the meats. There were 4-6 soups and a lot of salads and desserts to choose from. We liked the atmosphere as well as the food. Our server,...

Having previously dined at Boma for dinner (we loved it!) we chose a late breakfast seating this time - so we could hit Animal Kingdom for Extra Magic Hours then head to a late/breakfast early lunch. Perfect planning! We'd worked up an appetite and Boma was perfect to satisfy our hunger. Our server brought coffee and jungle juice promptly and... More

I overheard people saying this is their favorite restaurant. We decided to try this, even though we don't particularly like buffets. Well, we should have listened to ourselves. There was a lot of variety, I'll give them that. It all tasted like middle of the road, it was fine, nothing more. I did enjoy the butternut squash soup and the... More

Buffet style with more flavor sand food than I could eat. Great food with Indian and African flair. And plenty for the kids to choose from, too. And the hype about the zebra dome--it is true. They are delicious. But I'm also now hooked on bread pudding.

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
